ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trey Burke scored 19 points and freshman Nik Stauskas added 12 to lead No. 3 Michigan to a 67-39 victory over Binghamton on Tuesday night.

The Wolverines (10-0) are off to their best start since their national title season of 1988-89, and this win was every bit the mismatch it looked like before the opening tip.

The Bearcats (2-9) were coming off a
22-point loss to Bryant. They led Michigan10-8 before the Wolverines went on a 19-2 run en route to a 34-14 halftime advantage.

It might have been even more lopsided if Michigan hadn’t shot a season-worst 44 percent from the field. Burke was 8 of 12, but Tim Hardaway Jr. scored only nine points on 3 of 13 shooting.

NO. 10 ILLINOIS 64, NORFOLK STATE 54

In Champaign, Ill., Brandon Paul scored 14 points and D.J. Richardson overcame a shoulder injury to add 11 and help Illinois (11-0) hold off Norfolk State (6-6).

Rashid Gaston scored 12 points for Norfolk State, which led most of the first half.

NO. 13 MINNESOTA 70, NORTH DAKOTA STATE 57

In Minneapolis, Rodney Williams scored a season-high 19 points, including a 360-degree dunk off a fast break, and Trevor Mbakwe grabbed a career-high 18 rebounds to lead Minnesota (11-1) past North Dakota State
(8-3).
