On Saturday afternoon, Michigan put together arguably the best all-around performance we have seen from any team since the NCAA Tournament began. The Wolverines destroyed a VCU team that was impressive in its opening-round win against Akron.

Tim Hardaway Jr. can take the questions in stride at this point.
Any time Michigan is in the national spotlight, his familiar name stands out - and the queries about his father seem inevitable.
''It was hard just to try to follow his footsteps, and you try not to worry about it,'' Hardaway said. ''You try to leave a legacy of your own. It takes a long time...

The Michigan Wolverines already held a 62-38 lead over VCU in the second half Saturday when Tim Hardaway Jr., Nik Stauskas and Spike Albrecht set off on a 3-on-0 break. Stauskas corralled a pass from Trey Burke, then dumped a bounce pass off to Hardaway.

Michigan freshman Glenn Robinson III burst onto the scene as a productive, stat stuffing, dunk specialist for the Wolverines this season. After going through a dry spell, Robinson III is back to his ‘old’ ways in the NCAA tournament.
Throughout the first half of Michigan’s 71-56 defeat of South Dakota State on Thursday, Trey Burke simply did not look like the National Player of the Year candidate Michigan fans have watched all season. The Jackrabbits were shutting down the middle and Burke was seeing jumpers rim out left and right.
