ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Trey Burke stole the ball near midcourt and raced ahead for a breakaway layup to put Michigan ahead by 31.
Moments later, his night was done.
Burke scored 19 points in only 30 minutes – the most rest he’s had in a game all season – and No. 3 Michigan routed Binghamton 67-39 on Tuesday.
I don’t feel banged up, but I think Spike (Albrecht) did a good job coming and giving me some time, Burke said. Caris (LeVert) obviously came in and gave some great minutes.
LeVert played 14 minutes and Albrecht played 10. They combined for six assists and no turnovers.
The Wolverines (10-0) are off to their best start since their national title season of 1988-89.
