No. 5 Michigan rolls into semifinal of NIT Tip-Off
MICHIGAN 77, CLEVELAND ST 47

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- The last time Michigan won three
straight games by at least 30 points, the Wolverines went on to
win the national championship.



It's a bit early for that kind of talk this season, but Tim
Hardaway Jr. and his team are off to quite a start.



Hardaway had 17 points and six rebounds, and No. 5 Michigan
advanced to the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off with a
77-47 victory over Cleveland State on Tuesday night.



The Wolverines beat Slippery Rock 100-62 in their opener then
routed IUPUI 91-54. This is now their longest streak of 30-point
wins since they had five in a row in December 1988, according to
STATS, LLC.



Michigan figures to face a tougher test in this tournament next
week, when the Wolverines take on Pittsburgh at Madison Square
Garden in New York.



"At Michigan, you come to win championships, and this is one of
the most prestigious preseason tournaments," coach John Beilein
said. "Many of the kids have not been to New York, they've not
been to the Garden, and we wanted them to get there."



The Wolverines (3-0) shot 51 percent against a Cleveland State
(2-1) team coming off an overtime win the day before.



Nik Stauskas scored 15 points and Trey Burke added 12 points and
seven assists for Michigan, which closed the first half on a
29-5 run to take a 42-14 lead at the break. The second half
looked a lot like the Wolverines' first two games - there wasn't
much drama.



"We're going to work four days of late-game situations," Beilein
said. "Getting those in these early-season games are always
beneficial. We haven't had any of those."



Anton Grady led the Vikings with 15 points.



The Wolverines shot 25 of 40 from 3-point range in their first
two games but went only 9 of 24 Tuesday night.



Michigan is rarely shy about shooting from beyond the arc, but
the Wolverines didn't really need to against the Vikings. They
raced out to an 8-0 lead on layups by Burke, Hardaway and Jordan
Morgan and then a dunk by Morgan.



Glenn Robinson III missed a dunk on an alley-oop attempt from
Burke, and Grady's layup at the other end made it 10-7, but it
didn't stay close for long.



Burke made another nice pass to Robinson, and this time the
freshman converted the dunk for a 19-9 lead. Michigan blew the
game open without making another 3-pointer until Hardaway hit
one with 57 seconds left in the half.



"I've honestly never been to New York," Burke said. "Just to be
able to go there for the first time with this team, it means a
lot. To go there, play against some of the competition that's
going to be there, it's going to kind of test where we're at."



Michigan shot 64 percent from the field in the first half.



The Wolverines entered the season with high expectations,
largely because of Burke and Hardaway. But the much-hyped
freshman class is contributing already, as well. Mitch McGary
had one nice sequence in the first half when he brought the ball
up along the right sideline in transition, then after the
Wolverines scored he hustled back to draw a charge under the
basket.



The 6-foot-10 McGary finished with six points and nine rebounds,
and fellow freshman Stauskas connected three times from long
distance. He's now 7 for 11 from 3-point range in his young
career.



Robinson was coming off an 8-for-9 performance from the field in
a win over IUPUI on Monday. The freshman went 2 of 7 against
Cleveland State but still finished with nine points and seven
rebounds.



Cleveland State advanced to play Michigan after outlasting
Bowling Green 79-73 in overtime Monday. Four Vikings played at
least 40 minutes in that game, and they never really threatened
the Wolverines.



"I think there was some intimidation tonight coming into this
building and playing Michigan. We really didn't play well in any
facet of the game," Cleveland State coach Gary Waters said.
"This program has done a lot of great things - we went into
Syracuse and won and we've gone into other places and won - so
there wasn't an intimidation factor for our program, but this is
a very young team. These kids haven't done this before."



Michigan has won all nine meetings against Cleveland State.
