Michigan 76, Saginaw Valley State 48
There’s been more than enough off-season debate as to whether Michigan is overrated as the fifth best team in preseason polls. Only time will tell, but through two exhibition games the Wolverines look every bit like John Beilein’s most talented team to date. Michigan cruised to a Monday night exhibition win over Saginaw Valley State by a final score of 76-48. The Wolverines scored inside and out, dominated the glass on both ends of the floor and overpowered the Cardinals.
Glenn Robinson III set the tone early with 10 quick points, finishing with 17 on nine field goal attempts, while Trey Burke was clearly the best player on the floor. Burke racked up 16 points and eight assists in just 21 minutes. While Burke and Robinson were the only Wolverines to reach double figures, the offensive attack was balanced as ten players scored at least one field goal and 23 of Michigan’s 29 made shots were assisted.
