Live blog: No. 2 Michigan looks to make it 12 in a row vs. Eastern Michigan
ANN ARBOR --
FINAL: Michigan 93, Eastern Michigan 54
-- The largest margin of victory of the season. Mitch McGary records his first double-double, and the Wolverines put five players in double figures for an easy win.
Michigan 83, EMU 52
-- 3:14, second half
Tim Hardaway Jr. puts the exclamation point on this one with a thunderous one-handed dunk in transition. Terrific game for him tonight, 17 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds.
Michigan 66, EMU 45
-- 7:44, second half
This game's obviously over. Max Bielfeldt getting some extended time, Caris LeVert, too. Bielfeldt's got two points and three rebounds, which is about what Jon Horford was giving the team most nights. Stauskas leads the way with 13.
Michigan 59, EMU 37
-- 11:53, second half
McGary having a pretty nice stretch here for Michigan, up to 8 points and 7 boards now. Wolverines in complete control, line was 26 on this one -- Michigan up 22 right now.
Michigan 49, EMU 32
-- 15:05, second half
Mitch McGary with a thunder dunk and a putback layup, and then a goaltend. The freshman still looking for consistency right now. In any event, Tim Hardaway Jr. filling the stat sheet --7 points, 6 assists, 2 rebounds. Trey Burke now with 11 points and 5 assists, Stauskas has now scored in double figures in 11 straight games, he's got 10.
Michigan 40, EMU 24
Burke finishes the first half with 11 points an 4 assists, Nik Stauskas with 9 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. with 7. Michigan led by as many as 21 points in the half.
Michigan 37, EMU 17
-- 3:56, first half
After a 20-0 run by Michigan, EMU has almost completely self-destructed. Trey Burke rolling now, 11 points and 4 assists. Max Bielfeldt getting some time, so is Mitch McGary and Matt Vogrich. Tim Hardaway Jr. with 7 points and 3 assists.
Michigan 6, Eastern Michigan 6
-- 15:57, first half
Eagles come out in their customary 2-3 zone, and Michigan looks a bit perplexed by it early. EMU coming out hard on Burke and Hardaway at the top of the zone, Michigan looking to work the ball inside. Picking up the pace would also help Michigan, as EMU would love for this game to be played in the 50s.
• Starters tonight for Michigan -- Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr., Nik Stauskas, Glenn Robinson III, Jordan Morgan. Same as usual.
• No Jon Horford tonight (obviously), he's on the sidelines in a suit. But he's not wearing any type of brace, no crutches or anything -- has to be a positive sign.
The Michigan basketball team keeps on rolling, and with another win tonight, it becomes one step closer to program history.
The Wolverines are looking to become just the second team in school history to start a season 12-0 tonight vs. Eastern Michigan (8:30 p.m., Big Ten Network), a feat that wasn't accomplished by the Fab Five or the 1989 national title team.
The last team to pull it off? The 1985-86 Big Ten title team, who still owns the school record with a 16-0 start.
The Wolverines are 26-point favorites against their Washtenaw County counterparts. EMU comes into the game at 6-3.
