ANN ARBOR, Mich. — The second-ranked Michigan Wolverines overcame a slow start to defeat Iowa 95-67 at the Crisler Center Sunday to improve to 15-0 (2-0 in Big Ten).

Iowa scored the games first seven points and led Michigan 21-17 with just seven minutes left in the first half, but the Wolverines would then start a stretch of scoring 41 points inside of the next 11 minutes to run away with their second victory in conference play. Michigan ended up leading 46-35 at the end of the first half. The Wolverines led by as much as 35 late in the second half.

Sophomore point guard Trey Burke led the Wolverines with 19 points and a career-best 12 assists. Freshman Glenn Robinson III had 20 points and 10 rebounds, while junior Tim Hardaway Jr. had 19 points of his own.

Michigan is now just one win shy of tying the best start in program history. The Wolverines host Nebraska on Wednesday.
