No. 2 Michigan tops Nebraska 62-47 to move to 16-0
MICHIGAN 62, NEBRASKA 47

By NOAH TRISTER

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Trey Burke has a good idea of what to
expect when Michigan takes the court at Ohio State on Sunday.



"I expect pretty much the same atmosphere as last year," Burke
said. "It was very intense. We all were getting booed. It should
be fun."



The difference this time is that the Wolverines will be
undefeated when they face their rivals to the south.
Second-ranked Michigan assured that with a 62-47 win over
Nebraska on Wednesday night.



The Wolverines (16-0, 3-0 Big Ten) equaled their best start to a
season. Only the 1985-86 team had started 16-0, and that was
also the last Michigan team to be unbeaten heading into a game
at Ohio State, according to STATS. On Jan. 4, 1986, the
Wolverines improved to 14-0 with a 78-68 win in Columbus.



Michigan won Wednesday despite its shakiest shooting performance
in a while. Burke had 18 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 15
points and 11 rebounds.



Ray Gallegos scored 19 for Nebraska (9-7, 0-3), which held the
Wolverines to 39 percent shooting. Michigan, which beat its
first two conference opponents by 28 points apiece, went 3 of 17
from 3-point range.



"It's a great win. We had to grind one out," coach John Beilein
said. "That adversity is good stuff in the long run."



With the game still in doubt, freshman Glenn Robinson III
intercepted a pass near midcourt and went in alone for a soaring
dunk that put Michigan ahead 47-39. After a 3-pointer by
Gallegos cut the lead to five, Robinson slammed down a missed
shot by teammate Caris LeVert to make it a seven-point game.



Michigan's Mitch McGary went diving on the floor for a loose
ball, causing a jump ball that gave possession to the
Wolverines. The 6-foot-10 freshman then began waving his arms,
trying to pump up the crowd.



McGary's layup at the other end made it 51-42, and Hardaway's
two free throws put Michigan up by double digits for the first
time.



"As long as we can run our offense and execute, there's people
on this team that can score no matter what," McGary said.
"Tonight, we weren't hitting shots like we wanted to, so we just
needed to make up for it on the defensive end, and I think we
did that."



The 1985-86 Wolverines, featuring Roy Tarpley and Glen Rice, had
the program's most recent regular-season conference title until
last season's team finished tied atop the Big Ten. Michigan
breezed through its first two league games this season but found
the going a bit tough against the plodding Cornhuskers.



Nebraska, coming off a 47-41 loss to Wisconsin, was content to
keep the pace slow, and the Wolverines couldn't pull away.
Michigan didn't help itself by going 17 of 26 from the free
throw line.



"It's tough because this is the same thing we did against
Wisconsin," Gallegos said. "We gave ourselves a chance, but we
didn't make the hustle plays that we needed to make. They got a
lot of offensive rebounds and a lot of second-chance points, and
that hurt us."



The Wolverines had 16 offensive rebounds and turned the ball
over only five times.



Toward the end, the home crowd began chanting "Beat Ohio" -
Michigan's game at No. 15 Ohio State will be a homecoming of
sorts for Burke, who is from Columbus.



"Ohio State-Michigan, just the rivalry, the two names when they
play against each other, it's always going to be an intense
game," he said.



Nebraska has held 15 of its 16 opponents under 50 percent
shooting, but the Cornhuskers couldn't score enough down the
stretch. Gallegos had their final 13 points. A layup by Brandon
Ubel with 12:51 remaining was the last scoring contribution by
any other Nebraska player.



After that, Michigan freshman Nik Stauskas tossed up a wild shot
on a drive to the basket. It missed, but he was able to keep the
ball inbounds for his teammates before setting up over in the
right corner. Stauskas eventually made a 3 to put Michigan up
43-34.
