Michigan 71, South Dakota State 56 - Final Score

Despite the fact sophomore point guard Trey Burke failed to score at least 10 points for the first time this season, the Michigan Wolverines were able to pull away from the South Dakota State Jackrabbits in the second half of a decisive 71-56 victory on Thursday night.

Freshman small forward Glenn Robinson III and junior shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. combined for 42 points to guide the fourth-seeded Wolverines to victory. The two knocked down 16-of-22 field goals.

Burke scored just six points on 2-of-12 shooting, but Michigan got a big boost from freshman power forward Mitch McGary. The Chesterton, Ind. native scored 13 points and snagged nine rebounds in the win.

The Wolverines' much maligned defense also turned around quite a bit this evening. Michigan held Nate Wolters, who averages 22-plus points per game, to just 10 points on 3-of-14 from the field.

The Maize and Blue now await the winner of the Akron Zips vs. VCU Rams matchup, and will be back in action on Saturday.
