Tim Hardaway Jr. recorded his fourth career double-double with 25 points and 10 rebounds. Each time he has recorded the feat, U-M has won the game.
Michigan scored 100 points in a game for the first time in nearly five years. The last time was when the Wolverines had 103 points against Oakland (Dec. 7, 2007). Max Bielfeldt's first career points off a tip-in from a Josh Bartelstein missed free throw helped U-M to the century mark.
With his five three field-goal attempts tonight, Tim Hardaway Jr. surpassed Robbie Reid (397) for eighth all-time in field-goal attempts with 399. In addition, he tied his career high with five three-pointers -- a feat he has had six times in his career.
Jon Horford returned to action for U-M for the first time since Dec. 10, 2011. After missing the final 25 games of the 2011-12 season with a right foot injury, a sprained knee caused him to miss the majority of this preseason and Michigan's two exhibition games. Horford recorded four points, one rebound, one assist and one block in eight minutes played.
With his 21 points and eight assists, Trey Burke recorded his 31st career double figure scoring game and his 17th game with five or more assists.
Matt Vogrich earned his first career start against Slippery Rock and needs just one more game played to become the 58th Wolverine with 100 career games played.
