ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Trey Burke scored 19 points and freshman Nik Stauskas added 12 to lead No. 3 Michigan to a 67-39 victory over Binghamton on Tuesday night.
The Wolverines (10-0) are off to their best start since their national title season of 1988-89, and this win was every bit the mismatch it looked like before the opening tip. The Bearcats (2-9) were coming off a 22-point loss to Bryant. They led Michigan 10-8 before the Wolverines went on a 19-2 run.
It was 34-14 at halftime.
Jordan Reed scored 11 points and was Binghamton's only player in double figures. He also had eight rebounds.
The Wolverines were favored by 37 points, but they got off to a slow start, allowing the Bearcats to match them in the early going. Rayner Moquete's 3-pointer off a Michigan turnover put Binghamton up two, but the lead was short lived.
Tim Hardaway Jr.'s three-point play 23 seconds later put the Wolverines back ahead, and Stauskas and Hardaway made it 21-12 with back-to-back 3-pointers.
Reed gave the Bearcats a brief highlight, dunking back a missed shot to make it 27-14, but Michigan scored the last seven points of the half, capped by Burke's 3 from near the top of the key in the final seconds.
Burke made an alert play in the second half when his pass toward Jordan Morgan was deflected up off the backboard. The ball bounced all the way back to Burke on the perimeter, and the Michigan point guard then drove for an easy bank shot and a 52-27 lead.
It was 62-31 after Burke's steal and breakaway layup.
Binghamton did not shoot a free throw until there was 4:41 to play in the second half. Michigan was whistled for only four fouls all night.
The Bearcats settled for too many outside shots, several of which didn't even hit the rim. Binghamton shot 34 percent from the field, 7 of 25 from 3-point range.
It might have been even more lopsided if Michigan hadn't shot a season-worst 44 percent from the field. Burke was 8 of 12, but Hardaway scored only nine points on 3-of-13 shooting. Freshman Mitch McGary had six points and 10 rebounds.
