The game between Michigan and Duke had the third largest crowd to ever watch a game at Crisler Arena. With 13,751 spectators, the game was the first sellout since Jan. 30, 2001, when the Michigan State Spartans visited Crisler Arena (13,562).
Bests of a Young Career

Young also dished out a career-best-tying three assists to complement his 25-point performance on a career-high-tying nine field goals made.
Blanchard Breaks the 1,000-Point Plateau
