The Wolverines held a 46-32 halftime lead and now hold a 22-4 record when leading at the break.

Michigan now holds a 14-5 all-time record in NIT competition. This record reflects vacated games due to NCAA sanctions.

U-M remains undefeated against the Ducks (3-0) and improves its all-time record against the Pac-10 to 13-24. This record reflects vacated games due to NCAA sanctions.

The Wolverines nearly matched their record for fewest points allowed in an NIT game, which was set last week when U-M limited Oklahoma to just 52 points in their second-round victory at Crisler Arena.

With the victory, Michigan improves to 22-11 on the season, which matches a career high for head coach Tommy Amaker. He also collected 22 wins during his third season at Seton Hall (1999-2000).

The Wolverines had four double-figure scorers for the 25th time this season.

The Wolverines out-rebounded Oregon 39-32. It marks the 25th time this year that U-M has out-rebounded or played even its opponent. Michigan holds a 19-6 record when winning the battle of the boards.

With 11 steals against Oregon, Michigan nearly matched its season high of 13, set against Fairfield at Madison Square Garden on Jan. 3.

With 13 points, Bernard Robinson Jr. has now scored in double figures in 90 of 119 career games at Michigan.

With season-high-tying four steals, Bernard Robinson Jr. surpassed Travis Conlan (1995-98) for third place on Michigan's all-time steals list. In four seasons, Robinson has collected 168 swipes.

With one steal tonight, Daniel Horton has had at least one theft in 29 of 33 games this season.

Chris Hunter knocked down his fourth career triple in the first half against Oregon. Hunter is now 4-for-11 in his career from behind the arc.

Daniel Horton's 4-of-8 shooting from the three-point line is a duplicate of the performance he had in his last trip to Madison Square Garden. Horton also nailed four triples on eight attempts en route to 17 points in a win against Fairfield. Horton is now 11-of-23 (.478) from the field in two games at MSG this season.

Michigan now has a four-game winning streak playing at Madison Square Garden dating back to the 1996-97 season. Including the win vs. Oregon (March 30), the Wolverines defeated Fairfield earlier this season to give them their third win at MSG and then had the two vacated semifinal and final games in the 1997 postseason NIT.

Daniel Horton tied a career high with nine assists against the Ducks. It also ties him with Travis Conlan (1995-98) for the most assists by a U-M player in an NIT Game. Conlan accomplished the feat against Notre Dame on March 20, 1997.

Michigan's 25-point victory sets a new school record for largest margin of victory in an NIT game. The previous high was a 94-70 victory over Wichita State on March 18, 1984.
