Final Score - Michigan 80 Arkansas 67 

The Michigan Wolverines knew the Arkansas Razorbacks were going to play fast, and John Beilein's crew proved it was up to the task of handling an up-tempo style of play in the Maize and Blue's 80-67 win at the Crisler Center on Saturday afternoon.

Glenn Robinson III led the Wolverines with 17 points, while the rest of the starting five also managed to crack double digits in the points column. 

Junior power forward Jordan Morgan scored a season-high 12 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, including six offensive boards, which helped create numerous second chance opportunities for the Wolverines.

Marshawn Powell led all scorers with 18 points and sophomore power forward Hunter Mickelson scored 10 points on 5-of-10 shooting despite sitting out much of the first half due to foul trouble.

Michigan improved to 9-0 for the first time since the 1988-89 season, which ended with the Wolverines winning the national championship, while the Razorbacks fell to 4-4 and are now 0-2 against Top 25 opponents this year.
