Tim Burke scored a season-best 27 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. matched his season high with 25 and No. 3 Michigan remained unbeaten with an 81-66 victory over West Virginia on Saturday night at the Barclays Center. The Wolverines (11-0) were last off to this good a start in 1988-89 -- the season they won the school's only national championship. Burke and Hardaway both had solid all-around games in the backcourt. Burke was 12 of 16 from the field and had eight assists, while Hardaway was 7 of 12 and made half of his eight 3-point attempts. Freshman Terry Henderson had a season-high 23 points for the Mountaineers (4-5), who lost their second straight after a three-game winning streak.
