Iowa State succumbs to No. 6 Kansas, 97-89 in OT

Form Tracker: January 10th, 2013

Dustin Johnston Our weekly feature tracking the performance of Michigan players over the last week’s action. Glenn Robinson III: 9 (Last Week: 7.5) Robinson continues to be one of the most efficient Wolverines on the roster: the freshman hasn’t shot below 50 percent from the field since Western Michigan in early December.

Duke at NC State: What to watch

According to Ken Pomeroy, Duke has a 13.6% chance of running the table in the regular season. There are only three games in which they have less than an 80% chance of winning.
