No. 2 Michigan still undefeated with win over Eastern Michigan


The Wolverines continued their dominance over non-conference opponents as they routed cross town rival Eastern Michigan in a 93-54 rout from Crisler Arena.

Tim Hardaway Jr. had 17 points and a career-high seven assists as Michigan moved to 12-0 on the year, their best start since 1985-86 when the Wolverines started the season 16-0.

Meanwhile the Eagles who now sit at 6-4 have dropped two straight since beating Big Ten opponent Purdue.

After trailing 6-2 in the opening minutes, Michigan used a 20-0 run en route to a 40-24 halftime lead. This eventually led to a much more comfortable lead in the second half as the Wolverines never looked back.

Daylen Harrison of Eastern Michigan had 13 points while Glen Bryant added 10 in the Eagles loss.

Michigan’s Trey Burke, the reigning Big Ten Player of the Week had 11 points while Nik Stauskas was deadly once again from three point range going 5/8 with 16 points.
