Michigan has plucked two of Ohio’s best from right in the heart of Buckeye-land over the past few seasons. Now Trey Burke and Caris LeVert are working hard to take each other… and Michigan to another level.

Nik Stauskas is a sharpshooting freshman on the Michigan Wolverines basketball team. On Christmas Eve, the Canadian native spent time working on his shot in the backyard by attempting to nail 45 out of 50 3-point shot attempts. Amazingly, he succeeded. If you don't believe me than watch the video for yourself.The 6-foot-6 guard is averaging 13.4 PPG and is shooting a whopping...
University of Michigan freshman Nik Stauskas is a perfect fit for Jon Beilein’s system. Despite being a college rookie, he can shoot it with the best of them. As of December 27, he’s shooting a ridiculous 55.7% (34 of 61) from downtown this season and is third in scoring (13.4 PPG) on the 12-0 Wolverines.
Stauskas and his teammates had a nine-day break between games over...
Michigan Basketball will host Central Michigan on Saturday night at Crisler Center. Tip is scheduled for 7pm and the game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
Central enters the game with a 7-5 record and an 0-2 mark against the Big Ten (losses to Iowa and Nebraska). They will feature an offense that puts 5 shooters on the floor. Their leading scorer is senior guard Kyle Randall...

Trey Burke: 9.5 (Last Week: 9.5)
It’s awfully difficult to play better than Burke is playing right now. When you score 27 points to go along with eight assists, five rebounds, three steals and no turnovers, analysts are going to start proclaiming you one of the...
ANN ARBOR, Mich. Whatever 2013 brings, it is clear that 2012 belonged to Trey Burke.
When the New Year dawned, there were still big question marks over Burke's ability to lead the Wolverines in Big Ten play. After all, the conventional wisdom was that point guard was too important to leave to a freshman.
Twelve months later, the only question left about Burke is if he can...
Urban Meyer was successful in his first game as Ohio State's head coach against arch-rival Michigan, but Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke won't have to wait a year to seek revenge. Winning on National Signing Day is now the focus, as what happens in early February will likely help determine results of future games.
Throughout the season we’ll answer your questions that you submit via Twitter, e-mail or Facebook. This week we discuss a NCAA tournament bracketing, non-conference takeaways, class of 2014 recruits and much more.
