One emphatic block by Mitch McGary changed everything. The block, and the Michigan run that followed, eliminated 17 minutes of hard work from a visiting Iowa team with dreams of an upset. Iowa’s 7-0 start and valiant effort to control a majority of the the first half would be forgotten in a flash. Michigan would outscore the Hawkeyes 64-38 from that point to waltz to a 95-65 victory.
The Wolverine offense was dynamic and balanced as seven Wolverines would score with __ in double figures. Glenn Robinson III (20 points and 10 rebounds) and Trey Burke (19 points and 12 assists) both added double-doubles while Tim Hardaway Jr. (19 points) and Nik Stauskas (13 points) provided plenty of scoring punch.
