The #7 Michigan Wolverines were able to get past a slow start in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Illinois Fighting Illini and won 71-58.
Trey Burke put on a show scoring 26 points to join Phil Hubbard, Mike McGee, Jalen Rose, Chris Webber, Louis Bullock and Manny Harris as the sophomores to have scored 1,000 points at Michigan.
