This game between the Illinois Fighting Illini and the Michigan Wolverines wasn't even a contest. The whole game was Michigan. The only lead that the Fighting Illini had was at the 15:30 second mark in the first half. They only had a 6-7 lead.
If it wasn't for the 4 players that were in double figures for the Wolverines this team wouldn't even be ranked and they are #2 in the nation. The players in double figures were Tim Hardaway Jr., Glenn Robinson III, Trey Burke, and Nik Stauskas. Stauskas had 14 points, Robinson had 12 points and 6 boards. Burke would have 19 points, 3 steals, and 5 assists. Hardaway would end with 12 points, 3 steals, and a block. Their offense does all the work and that is enough for them as they coast for a 74-60 win. On the Illinois side they Brandon Paul had 15 points and banged 3 three pointers. Plus Nnanna Eqwa had 10 boards leading all players.
