PLAYERS: Trey Burke
TEAMS:
Michigan basketball got a test from the Iowa Hawkeyes this afternoon…for about 18 minutes. After that, the Wolverines absolutely destroyed any good vibes that Fran McCaffery’s team was playing with. Michigan improves to 15-0, 2-0 with a 95-67 win. One more win and they will match the best single season start in school history. Iowa actually had Michigan down for most of the 1st half. Their last lead was 27-26 with about 4 minutes left in the opening stanza. From there, Michigan outscored the Hawkeyes 68-41. Trey Burke and Glenn Robinson III paved the way with their double-doubles. Burke was 7-10 from the floor on his way to 19 points and a career-high 12 assists. He turned the ball over just 1 time. Today’s effort marks his 3rd double-double of the season. Robinson had 20 points (8-13 shooting) and 10 boards for his first career double-double. Trey Burke and Glenn Robinson III How They Won Michigan had to battle uphill for pretty much the first time all season during the 1st half today. It mattered not as they came away with a blowout win by 28 points. Michigan put on an aerial assault in the 2nd half with a series of dunks that continuously brought the Crisler Center crowd to its feet. The Wolverines shot 58.1% from the floor (36-62) and 10-22 from three point range (45.5%). John Beilein’s team turned the ball over just 6 times and owned the glass, out-rebounding Iowa 41-26. Nik Stauskas added 13 points (3-6 from deep) and threw down a ferocious 2-handed dunk off the dribble in the 2nd half, further showing off his complete all-around game. Roy Devyn Marble had a team-high 14 for the Hawkeyes. Winning in the Big Ten isn’t supposed to be easy, and it won’t always look like this, but Michigan is looking like an unstoppable force at the moment. 3 Stars Trey Burke – This is becoming a bit repetitive. Burke is placing himself firmly into the National Player of the Year discussion with his play this season. Burke seems to be able to do whatever he wants on the floor whenever his team needs it. Glenn Robinson III – Today marks the first of what should be many double-double efforts from this high flyer. He has been torturing the rims with an array of slam dunks lately and seems to be gaining a lot of confidence each time out on the court. On top of his 20 and 10, he added 3 assists to his line. Tim Hardaway, Jr. – TH2 continues to shoot the ball at a prolific rate over his last several games. Hardaway was 7-13 on the night and 3-5 from beyond the arc in a tremendous overall game. He netted 19 point, 5 boards, and 5 assists, and played with a serious edge all game long. News and Notes Mitch McGary’s spirited play really helped to spearhead the overwhelming run Michigan put on Iowa in the 2nd half. McGary was blocking shots and corralling rebound with reckless abandon. Playing with a partial Kleenex stuffed up his nose during the 2nd half to stop the blood from flowing after a shot he took early on, McGary shook it off and grabbed 11 rebounds and had 3 blocks, including an emphatic swat of an Aaron White dunk attempt. Michigan as a team threw down 10 dunks with 5 of those coming from Robinson III. When is the last time you saw a Michigan team living above the rim like this one does? If you’re thinking the Fab Five then that would be the correct answer. Caris LeVert put forth another solid effort. He poured in 9 points in just 15 minutes of action. He was 3-5 from the floor and 2-3 from beyond the arc. Iowa did an excellent job not turning the ball over (7 total turnovers) but Michigan did an even better job converting on those miscues. Michigan scored 15 points off of those 7 turnovers. That’s not easy to do. The Hawkeyes came into the game with a full court press after made baskets and seemed content to run with the Wolverines. That move proved folly as Michigan scored 16 fast break points. Iowa scored exactly 0. Michigan outscored Iowa in the paint 44-32. The Wolverines shot 22-31 in those situations thanks mostly to their slew of slam dunks. Up Next Michigan will play host to Nebraska (9-5, 0-1) on Wednesday evening at the Crisler Center. Opening tip is set for 7 pm and the game will be aired on the Big Ten Network. Nebraska most recently got slapped by the Buckeyes in Columbus, 70-44. Unconfirmed rumors support the idea that the Cornhuskers might just stay home… If you would like to receive an email notification each time a Michigan Basketball story is posted you can fill out the Email Notification Form.
