The Streak Survives
Chris Young started his 47th consecutive game despite battling the stomach flu. Tonight's game also marked the 107th game Young has played in for the Wolverines. Young battled both the flu and the Badgers to finish with 16 points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot.

HG3 Gets the Nod
Herb Gibson received the first start of his career against the Badgers. Building on the longest appearance of his career to date against Illinois (Jan. 12) -- a nine-minute stretch in which he scored two points and notched a rebound, a block, and an assist -- Gibson played 27 minutes against Wisconsin and had four points, three blocks, one rebound and a steal. Gibson has played in 22 career games.

On the Rebound
With four rebounds against Wisconsin, Chris Young has collected 450 career rebounds and secured his fourth consecutive season with at least 100 rebounds.

Easy Points
Chris Young, with his second successful free throw at 0:59 of the first half, reached 50 free throws made on the season and 100 made in his Big Ten career. Young finished 6-of-7 from the line and has now made 54-of-67 this season (80.6 percent).

Cleaning the Glass
LaVell Blanchard corralled the 300th rebound of his Big Ten career. Blanchard began the game needing only four boards to reach this mark. The junior forward finished with eight rebounds, giving him 304 in the Big Ten and 591 in his career at Michigan.

B-Rob Drops in 300
In only his second year, Bernard Robinson Jr. has scored 315 points in Big Ten Conference play. Robinson poured in his 14th double-digit performance of the season as he scored 16 points while grabbing four boards in the win.

It's Tenacious D Time
The Wolverines' tenacious defense held Wisconsin to only 22 points in the first half, tying a season-low first-half point total (Eastern Michigan, Dec. 22). The Maize and Blue forced eight turnovers, including a pair of steals along with a pair of blocked shots by Herb Gibson, to hold the Badgers to an opponent-low 25.9 percent from the field.

That's Levitation, Herb
Former walk-on Herb Gibson, making his first career start, doubled his career total of blocked shots as he swatted away three Badger field goals attempts. Playing a career-high 27 minutes, Gibson recorded a pair of rejections in the first half and notched his third at 11:09 of the second frame when he swatted away Kirk Penney's three-point attempt.

Here's to You, Mr. Robinson
Coming of the bench for the second consecutive Big Ten Conference home game, Bernard Robinson Jr. dropped in a game-high 18 points, grabbed six rebounds, dished out an assist and swiped his 25th steal of the season.

13 and Counting
LaVell Blanchard scored in double digits for the 13th consecutive game. The junior forward chipped in 13 points against Wisconsin in 34 minutes of play. Blanchard led the team with eight rebounds -- four on each side of the court -- and three assists.

Return of the Three-Headed Monster
After disappearing for Michigan's last two Big Ten tilts, the Wolverines attack was spearheaded by three players, all scoring in double digits. Bernard Robinson Jr. led all scorers with 18 points, while Chris Young dropped in 16 and LaVell Blanchard added 13 points. This was the 16th game this season in which Michigan has finished with at least three players with 10 or more points.

Tied with Loy
With his 78th block of his career, Chris Young moved into a tie for ninth place on Michigan's career list with U-M legend Loy Vaught (1987-1990).
