No. 5 Michigan crushes IUPUI

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 12, 2012
Trey Burke scored 22 points and Glenn Robinson III added 21, leading No. 5 Michigan to a 91-54 victory over IUPUI on Monday night in the NIT Season Tip-Off. Burke equaled a career high with nine assists and Robinson made his first eight shots from the field. Michigan (2-0) has been a model of efficiency on offense so far this season. After beating Slippery Rock 100-62 in their opener, the Wolverines shot 60 percent from the field and went 13 of 21 from 3-point range against IUPUI. Michigan advances to play Cleveland State in the next round Tuesday night. Purdue transfer John Hart scored 15 points for IUPUI (1-1). Nik Stauskas scored 11 points for Michigan, and Tim Hardaway Jr. and Jordan Morgan added 10 each. The Wolverines are 25 for 40 from 3-point range through two games. Fresh off a 100-62 win over Slippery Rock, its highest-scoring game in nearly five years, Michigan continued its torrid shooting against IUPUI. After Morgan tipped a pass near midcourt and went in for a dunk to give the Wolverines a 31-25 lead, Michigan was shooting 79 percent from the field. It was 45-31 at halftime, with Michigan at 65 percent from the field and 7 of 10 from beyond the arc. Robinson made all six of his attempts from the field in the first half, then began the second with a 3-pointer from the right corner. The Wolverines opened the half with seven straight points to make it 52-31. Michigan has been a deliberate, half-court team under coach John Beilein, and most of the credit for the Wolverines' high-scoring ways this season goes to their terrific outside shooting. But they showed off a bit of extra athleticism Monday night. Robinson's dunk off a backdoor pass from Morgan made it 57-42, and Hardaway followed by driving down the middle for a dunk before the IUPUI defenders had a chance to get completely turned around. With 13:26 remaining, Hardaway hobbled off with what looked like a left leg problem, but he was able to return. Michigan has scored 90 points or more in consecutive games for the first time since doing it three straight times in November 2000, according to STATS, LLC.
