Michigan Basketball off to best start since 1988

December 12, 2012

Behind their young superstars and great coaching, the Michigan wolverines have improved to 10-0 on the season, marking its best start in over 2 decades.

They did so with a win over the unknown Binghamton Bearcats in Ann Arbor on Tuesday night, winning by 28 behind sophomore stand out guard Trey Burke and Michigan’s excellent shooting attack.


Burke scored 19 points in only 30 minutes, the most rest he’s had in a game all season.  Freshman Nik Staukas added 12 points, as the Wolverines used all 15 players in a game that was never close from the start, just as expected.

Jordan Reed scored 11 points and was Binghamton’s only player in double figures. He also had eight rebounds.

“That’s a great team — a team that could win a national championship — so coming into their building was taking an awfully big bite at the apple,” Binghamton coach Tommy Dempsey said. “I’m not sure that I thought it was realistic for us to come in here and beat Michigan, but I thought we were competitive, and at this stage of our program, that’s a great step in the right direction.”

The Wolverines next test is against the West Virginia Mountaineers in the brand new Barclays center in Brooklyn on Sunday night.
