ANN ARBOR, Mich. | Trey Burke scored 19 points and freshman Nik Stauskas added 12 to lead No. 3 Michigan to a 67-39 victory over Binghamton on Tuesday night.

The Wolverines (10-0) are off to their best start since their national title season of 1988-89, and this win was every bit the mismatch it was expected to be. The Bearcats (2-9), coming off a 22-point loss to Bryant, led 10-8 before the Wolverines went on a 19-2 run.

It was 34-14 at halftime.

Jordan Reed was Binghamton's only player in double figures with 11 points. He also had eight rebounds.


NO. 10 ILLINOIS 65, NORFOLK ST. 54: Brandon Paul scored 14 points and D.J. Richardson overcame a shoulder injury to add 11, helping Illinois hold off Norfolk State.

The Illini (11-0), coming off a win at Gonzaga that helped move them into the top 10, were sluggish against the Spartans. Illinois came in shooting 46 percent but hit just 35 percent Tuesday.

Rashid Gaston scored 12 points and Pendarvis Williams added 11 for Norfolk State (6-6), which led for much of the first half.

Richardson left late in the first half with a badly bruised shoulder but returned. His layup with just under two minutes remaining put the Illini up 56-51 and they held on for the win.

NO. 13 MINNESOTA 70, NDSU 57: Rodney Williams scored a season-high 19 points, including a 360-degree dunk off a fast break, and Trevor Mbakwe grabbed a career-high 18 rebounds to lead 13th-ranked Minnesota past North Dakota State 70-57 on Tuesday night.

Mbakwe added 14 points and Andre Hollins had 11 for the Gophers (11-1), who have won 16 straight games in this series, last losing in 1936.

Lawrence Alexander led the Bison (8-3) with 19 points, Taylor Braun added 15 and Marshall Bjorklund pitched in 12. Braun, who won two of the last three Summit League Player of the Week awards, fouled out with 3:57 left on a pump-fake power move by Mbakwe for a layup and three-point play.

WOMEN'S GAMES

NO. 10 MARYLAND 88, TOWSON 43: Alyssa Thomas had 23 points and 13 rebounds, and Katie Rutan added a season-high 16 points to lead No. 10 Maryland.

Tianna Hawkins added 14 points and Alicia DeVaughn 12 for the Terrapins (7-2), who have won three straight by an average of nearly 40 points after their loss to No. 2 Connecticut on Dec. 3. The Terps led by as many as 49 in the second half.

Maryland was ahead 43-21 at halftime and held the Tigers (4-4) scoreless for six minutes during a 21-0 run that gave the Terps a 68-25 lead midway through the second half.

Ciara Webb scored 12 points to lead Towson, which lost its third straight. The Tigers shot just 29.1 percent and were outrebounded 47-29.

NO. 18 TEXAS 77, LOUISIANA-MONROE 49: Brady Sanders scored 15 points and Cokie Reed added 14 to lead Texas to an easy win over Louisiana-Monroe.

Imani McGee-Stafford had 11 points and 11 rebounds, and Empress Davenport also scored 11 for the Longhorns (6-1).

Tyler Holley led the Warhawks (2-7) with a career-high 14 points. Alexar Tugler scored 10 points for Louisiana-Monroe, which shot 25 percent from the field.

Who would you take No. 1?

Who would you take No. 1?

There's been a lot of debate lately as folks feel like Duke's Jahlil Okafor may have played himself out of the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft.

Does anybody (ever) beat the 'Cats?

Does anybody (ever) beat the 'Cats?

I'm not a fan of Kentucky or John Calipari but I can give the Wildcats the respect they're due.
