Even more predictable and expected was Burke's offensive performance. He seems to have shaken off a rough game at Indiana to lead Michigan with six points -- tied with Zack Novak -- along with two rebounds and two assists. But his job on Taylor has made him the player of the game.

Turning point: Tim Hardaway Jr. didn't shoot much from 3-point range in the first half -- at least not like he has done the prior three Big Ten games -- but his 3-pointer from the top of the key to give the Wolverines a 16-14 lead with 6:46 remaining in the half.
