Michigan hoops to play Towson


The No. 18 Michigan basketball team is set to play Towson in the first game of the EA Sports Maui Invitational tonight at 8:30 p.m. Here's what you need to know:

In the game notes, freshman point guard Trey Burke and sophomore forward Jon Horford are listed as starters. Burke didn't start Friday against Ferris State because he was late to a walkthrough.

Towson is led by senior Robert Nwankwo, who had 14 points and 10 rebounds against Kansas on Friday in a 100-54 loss to the Jayhawks. Towson, a team usually at the bottom of the CAA, started three freshmen against Kansas and played six freshman.

The Tigers have no returning starters.

The game can be watched on ESPN3.
