Michigan couldn’t shoot much worse (although Nebraska managed to) yet still escaped with a 62-47 win in a 57 possession slug fest. Every team has nights like this one in a 30-something game college basketball season and the Wolverines proved that they are capable of winning games without the big numbers, three pointers and highlights. And that assertion should be particularly comforting to any longtime observer of Big Ten basketb...

Dustin Johnston Last year around this time, Michigan and Trey Burke took a road trip to Columbus to play Ohio State. Back then, Burke was still a wide-eyed freshman; Michigan was ranked No. 20 in the AP and searching for national respect; Ohio State was as good as ever, ranked No. 4 and looking to make a statement against its neighbors to the north. My, how things have changed. Far...

Trey Burke's season is getting even more attention.
A few days after winning both the Big Ten and national Player of the Week awards, the Michigan point guard was placed on the 25-man shortlist for the John Wooden Player of the Year award.

This year, Trey Burke promises that playing Ohio State is going to be all business.
With the No. 2 Wolverines going for the first 17-0 start in school history Sunday at the fifteenth-ranked Buckeyes, Burke doesn't want the game to get personal.
That's what he says happened last year, and you can understand why. After all, Burke is a Columbus native who wasn't given...

Winn is one of the most insightful sportswriters in the country and he chose one of the best point guards in the country but...

Glenn Robinson III: 9 (Last Week: 7.5)
Robinson continues to be one of the most efficient Wolverines on the roster: the freshman hasn’t shot below 50 percent from the field since Western Michigan in early December. Against Iowa, Robinson had perhaps the quietest double...
