No. 1 Michigan tops Northwestern

– Trey Burke had 18 points and eight assists, and No. 1 Michigan was nearly flawless at the start Wednesday night en route to a 68-46 victory over Northwestern.

Northwestern also shot well at the beginning, but the Wolverines’ points came easily, such as an alley-oop from Burke to Glenn Robinson III in transition.

“It’s a very good passing team, especially with Burke,” Wildcats coach Bill Carmody said. “They don’t make mistakes. It’s a good team. They can make you look pretty bad sometimes.”
