John Beilein joined the rest of the Big Ten coaches on the conference’s weekly teleconference. Michigan’s coach discussed his team’s upcoming game against Nebraska, Trey Burke and Glenn Robinson III sweeping the Big Ten weekly awards and more.
Opening statement: “We’re pleased to get through the first two games of the Big Ten schedule with a couple of wins. One of the things that we all know is that you need to get some road wins and then hold serve at home if you have any aspirations of being in the top of this league. So I’m happy that we’re off to that start. We have another challenge Wednesday, then before we talk again, again on Sunday. We’re back at it, this will be our third game in six days, so we have to just keep on grinding away.”
On Glenn Robinson III winning Freshman of the Week and the rest of the freshman class: “(Robinson) is just doing so many things for us that are behind-the-scenes, that I don’t think many people realize. … We run some very set looks that option o

In its first two Big ten games, Michigan is dealing with the two extremes of the tempo spectrum: Northwestern, at 64 possessions per game, played at a slow pace typical of a team running the Princeton offense. Iowa, at just over 70 possessions per game, is the fastest team in the Big Ten likes to push the ball upcourt for quick shots.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan's explosive offense was supposed to stall once the young Wolverines hit Big Ten play.
Thus far, they haven't even slowed down.
Three days after putting up 94 points against Northwestern, the Wolverines blew out Iowa, 95-67. Michigan (15-0, 2-0 Big Ten) would have had its first 100-point conference game in 15 years had John Beilein not taken...

Here's a scenario for you....let's say I give you a basketball and I tell you to take 50 three point shots at a hoop. How many would you make?
If you happen to be University of Michigan freshman Nik Stauskas, it would be forty-five and he's got the tape to prove it.

Before Michigan’s trip to Peoria, Illinois in early December, Caris LeVert looked as though he was headed for a redshirt freshman season. A little over a month later, the Pickerington, OH native is the most-used Michigan bench player outside of Mitch McGary. With every opportunity, LeVert seems to improve. He’s become steadily more efficient on the offensive end...

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...
