Mike Stobe

On Saturday afternoon, the No. 3 ranked Michigan Wolverines improved to 9-0 with an 80-67 win over Arkansas in Ann Arbor, Mich. All five Michigan starters scored in double-figures in the victory.

On Saturday, the No. 3 ranked Michigan Wolverines showed they were not only talented, but balanced, in an 80-67 win over Arkansas. Glenn Robinson III led Michigan with 17 points, and was one of five starters who finished the game scoring double-figures.

The Wolverines opened red-hot and took a 42-32 lead into halftime, before an 11-2 early second half run by Arkansas cut the Wolverines lead to within one. But Michigan's depth proved to be too much as along with Robinson, Trey Burke had 16 points and seven assists and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 14 points as well. Marshawn Powell scored 18 points for Arkansas, which fell to 4-4 on the season with the loss.

Meanwhile the Wolverines are now 9-0, which is their best start to a season since 1988-89. That season Michigan won the only National Championship in school history.

The Wolverines will return to the court on Tuesday to take on Binghamton, before traveling to Brooklyn next Saturday to face the West Virginia Mountaineers.
