#19 Michigan 60, #9 Michigan State 59Stu Douglass scored on a layup with around 36 seconds to go to put Michigan up by one. Michigan State then had about three chances in the final seconds to score the winning basket, but none of them fell. Michigan State finished 0-for-4 from the field with a turnover in the final two minutes. And all of that after a 16-2 second half run to overcome a fairly large Michigan lead. Trey Burke had another tremendous game, scoring 20 points on 8-for-11 shooting. I wouldn't say that he's as good of an overall player as Darius Morris was last season (he's as good at scoring the ball, but he's not as good of a passer or creator for his teammates), but the fact that he's more or less filled the void is the primary reason why Michigan is 5-2 and in contention atop the Big Ten.Michigan now has wins over Wisconsin, Michigan State, Memphis, Minnesota, Northwestern, Iowa State and UCLA, and only one bad loss (Iowa). Their Sagarin ELO_CHESS is all the way up to 19th.
