What grade would Tim Hardaway Jr. be receiving on a report card for Michigan's opening round NCAA tournament games?

Perhaps no team in the 2013 NCAA tournament had a more impressive opening week than the fourth-seeded Michigan Wolverines. 

The Maize and Blue pulled away from the South Dakota State Jackrabbits in the second half of their round of 64 clash. Michigan led by just four at halftime but led by as many as 17 points in the closing 20 minutes. The Wolverines eventually came away with a 71-56 victory.

Just over a day later, the Wolverines abused the VCU Rams' Havoc defense, which ranks first in the country in forcing turnovers. Michigan turned the ball over just 12 times and shot 51 percent from the floor to rout the Rams 78-53.

With the first week of action in the books, it is time to pass out report card grades for all of the Wolverines.
