Opening statement: “I thought Binghamton had a great game plan. I don’t know if you noticed, but they didn’t send people to the backboard — they tried to stop our transition offense and then they ended up maximizing every possession. One of the reasons we had the shot-clock violations was because of the fact that they really weren’t looking to score unless there was something wide open with 15 seconds to go. They shortened the game up, that’s why we only scored the 69 points. Thank goodness our defense really did a great job at the end of the first half. Lots of great things were seen out there that we can address for...

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan did everything they needed to do Tuesday night.
No one got hurt, the bench players all got to play and they played quickly enough that everyone could get home in time to study for finals.
Oh, and they beat Binghamtom 67-39 in a game that was probably less competitive than an intrasquad scrimmage.

Michigan basketball, ranked #3 in the country, steamrolled a weak Binghamton team by a final score of 67-39. The game was never in doubt as the Bearcats scored just 14 points in the first half and Michigan exerted their will in a game where they didn’t play their most effective basketball.

@TKBigCrew Which ’13 recruit has the greatest opportunity to make an impact as a freshman?
The easy answer is Derrick Walton. Walton is a great prospect and likely to contend for the Mr. Basketball award in the state of Michigan plus Trey Burke is a likely NBA early entry candidate. Combine those two facts with the amount of freedom that John Beilein allows his...
