Michigan is going to the Final Four.
The Wolverines left no doubt in Arlington, Texas as they dismantled the Florida Gators from the opening tip. Michigan opened the game on a tear as 13-0 start turned into a 23-5 lead which ballooned to 41-17 late in the first half. Florida would make things more competitive in the second half but never truly threatened the Wolverines as they coasted to a 79-59 victory.
Individually it was a showcase day for Michigan. Mitch McGary had eight points and six rebounds by the first media timeout; he finished with 11 points, nine rebounds and five steals. Nik Stauskas knocked down his first five three point attempts; he finished with 22 points. Trey Burke was simply Trey Burke, managing the game to perfection; he finished with 15 points, seven assists and seven rebounds. Spike Albrecht even added seven points, four steals and an assist off the bench.
The Wolverines played undoubtedly their best game of the season with the most on the line and will march ...
BEST OF MAXIM
In case you didn't know--Michigan's Trey Burke has got game.
That doesn't do the man justice--Trey Burke has got some crazy, whack, mad serious game (that sounded cooler in my head, but you get the idea, right? The man is something else!).
He has proved it all season long playing well enough for many to call him the front runner for player of the year in Division...
Trey Burke and the Michigan Men's Basketball team are moving on to the Elite 8 for the first time since 1994. I can't actually talk about this yet without my heart still racing or without me getting emotional. Yes, I'm that girl.I was out for happy hour with my friend David & we watched the Michigan/Kansas basketball game in a bar where I'm confident I was the...
Trey Burke scored all 23 of his points after halftime, including a long, tying 3-pointer in the final seconds of regulation, and Michigan rallied to beat Kansas 87-85 in the South Regional semifinals Friday night.
The fourth-seeded Wolverines wiped out a 10-point Kansas lead in the last 3 minutes of regulation, and Burke gave them their first lead since early in the game with another...
Michigan's Mitch McGary took a cheap shot to the family jewels, courtesy of Kansas' Elijah Johnson during their Sweet 16 battle.
Trey Burke grew up in the shadow of another Big Ten university. Mitch McGary was more of a baseball fan as a kid, and still dreams of a World Series for the Chicago Cubs.
They are now part of a new generation of fabulous young Wolverines going to the Final Four, the first for Michigan since the Fab Five two decades ago, after a dominating performance Sunday in the South Regional...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Another fabulous group of young players has Michigan headed back to the Final Four. Led by Big Ten player of the year Trey Burke and sharp-shooting guard Nik Stauskas, one of three freshman starters, the Wolverines dominated Florida right from tipoff, scoring the game's first 13 points and routing the Gators 79-59 in the South Regional final Sunday.
Trey Burke of Final Four-bound Michigan and Indiana teammates Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller were among 10 players selected to the John R. Wooden All-American team on Monday.
The Wooden Award for the college basketball player of the year will be announced this weekend at the Final Four in Atlanta. The winner will be honored at the Los Angeles Athletic Club on April 12.
The Sweet Sixteen was awesome. Another great two days of college basketball. We saw Trey Burke lead Michigan to an unbelievable comeback win against Kansas. We saw Aaron Craft and Ohio State on the brink of elimination again, but nonetheless prevail, and we even saw Syracuse’s zone stifle arguably the most potent offense in college basketball. But all those games are over, and...
Spike Albrecht shined while Trey Burke sat.
After all that, Michigan and Louisville were still pretty much even. Then the Wolverines couldn't stop the Cardinals in the second half.
With Burke on the bench in early foul trouble, the seldom-used Albrecht scored 17 points in the first half, and the Wolverines led by 12 in Monday night's national title game. But that lead was...

Hardaway after the jump.
I think the only thing under debate is whether Kansas’ Elijah Johnson tried to punch or grab Michigan’s Mitch McGary privates? Johnson was called for a flagrant foul.
The play happened in the opening minutes of the Michigan/Kansas matchup in the Sweet 16. The winner will advance to the Elite 8 and take on the winner of the highly anticipated Florida Gulf Coast vs Florida...
Which player has benefited most from the NCAA Tournament? That question deserves a complicated answer. And probably is more the fodder for blogs and pundit shows looking to talk about something and draw wild conclusions over singular games (Yes, I just insulted myself).
The reactions to Florida Gulf Coast's Randy Enfield jumping from Florida's West Coast to the actual...
Dunk City has been relocated to Ann Arbor, Mich., or Arlington, Tex., or something.
As part of Michigan’s 47-30 dominant half over Florida, Trey Burke hit Glenn Robinson III on an alley oop reminiscent of what we saw so often from Florida Gulf Coast University this NCAA Tournament (someone had to take over for the Eagles as “most entertaining team left in March Madness”).
Trey Burke's insane alley-oop pass to Glenn Robinson III served as the exclamation point in Michigan's Elite Eight win over the Florida Gators.
