ANN ARBOR (AP) – Trey Burke had 20 points and seven assists, and No. 3 Michigan eased past Western Michigan for a 73-41 victory Tuesday night.
The Wolverines (8-0) had actually lost their previous two games against the Broncos, but that was more than a decade ago. Western Michigan (6-2) had won six straight coming into this game, including a victory over South Florida, but the Broncos wasted a chance to stay in the game with the Wolverines, turning the ball over 13 times in the first half.
Nik Stauskas scored 11 points for Michigan, and fellow freshman Mitch McGary added 10 on 5-of-5 shooting.
Freshman Darius Paul had 10 points and 10 rebounds for Western Michigan.
It is Michigan’s first 8-0 start since 1996-97.
