Michigan vs. Minnesota: Live Score, Updates and Analysis for B1G Game

Zach DirlamSenior Analyst IIJanuary 17, 2013

It did not take the No. 5 Michigan Wolverines long to shake off the sting from their first setback of the 2012-13 season and dominated the No. 9 Minnesota Golden Gophers 83-75 at Williams Arena thanks to a balanced scoring attack.

Junior shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. came out firing for the Wolverines and scored 17 of his 21 points in the first half, while sophomore point guard Trey Burke poured in 18 points and dished out nine assists.

Six Wolverines scored at least eight points, including freshman power forward Mitch McGary, who pulled down two offensive rebounds and had three steals in what was his most impressive game since arriving in Ann Arbor.

The Golden Gophers could not overcome the 19-point deficit they fell into when Michigan went on a 13-6 run to open the second half.

Austin Hollins poured in a career-high 21 points and Andre Hollins scored 13 points despite sitting out a majority of the first half with two personal fouls.

Sixth-year senior Trevor Mbakwe recorded a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds for Minnesota.

The win keeps Michigan in a tie for second place in the Big Ten Conference. The Golden Gophers dropped their second straight league game and lost to the Wolverines at home for a fourth consecutive time.
