Final 1st 2nd Total #3 Michigan (9-0) 42 38 80 Arkansas (4-4) 32 35 67 A year ago, Michigan visited Fayetteville, Ark. in the middle of the Big Ten schedule and quickly fell behind by 20 in the first half. Despite a furious comeback, the Wolverines lost 66-64, picking up a loss just four days a thrilling win over Michigan State. Today, Michigan hosted the Razorbacks and returned the favor with a 80-67 win. Michigan built a 30-18 lead in the first 13 minutes of the game and held off an Arkansas comeback in the second half to pull away for the 13-point win. Michigan led 42-32 at the half, but Arkansas scored 11 of the first 13 points of the second half to cut the lead to two. It remained within a few points for the next five minutes and Arkansas pulled within one at 56-55 with 8:48 to play. But Michigan got back to back threes by freshmen Nik Stauskas and Spike Albrecht and outscored the Razorbacks 24-12 the rest of the way. John Beilein has won 100 games as Michigan head coach (Carlos Osorio, AP) All five starters scored in double digits, led by Glenn Robinson III’s 17 on 7-of-11 shooting. Trey Burke added 16 points and seven assits, while Tim Hardaway Jr was a rebound short of a double-double with 14 points and nine boards. Jordan Morgan did record a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, while Nik Stauskas also added 12 points. Michigan didn’t get much bench scoring in this one, as Mitch McGary scored six and Spike Albrecht hit a three. No one else scored, but Jon Horford put in 10 solid minutes with four rebounds, three blocks, and a steal. As a team, Michigan shot 46.8 percent, which is lower than its season average. Arkansas shot right at its season average of 44.3. It was the three-ball that kept the Razorbacks in the game. They hit 10-of-17, which is far better than their 28.8 percent season average. But Michigan pulled away thanks to the charity stripe, where the Wolverines made 15-of-18 and Arkansas attempted just four. Michigan also dominated the glass, out-rebounding Arkansas 42-26, including an 18-to-10 edge on the offensive end. It was John Beilein’s 100th win since he arrived in Ann Arbor and it moved Michigan to 9-0 for the first time since the 1988-89 season. You may remember what happened that season: Michigan’s last national championship. The Wolverines return to action on Tuesday against Binghamton (2-8) in the Crisler Center before traveling back to New York City on Saturday night to face West Virginia in the Brooklyn Winter Hoops Festival.
