(AP) — Michigan successfully navigated through its first test of the season this past week. It won’t have to wait long for its next one.
The third-ranked Wolverines will try to continue their best start in six seasons Tuesday night when they welcome No. 18 North Carolina State to the Crisler Center as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
After winning its first three games by a combined 105 points, Michigan got some stiffer competition during the final two games of NIT Season Tipoff in New York. The Wolverines (5-0) held off Pittsburgh for a 67-62 win Wednesday and used Tim Hardaway Jr.’s 23 points on 10-of-15 shooting for a 71-57 victory over Kansas State in Friday’s championship game.
