Michigan looks to stay perfect tonight as it faces its first top-25 foe of the season in No. 18 ranked NC State. The first marquee home game for the new-look Wolverines will also pay homage to last year’s team as the 2011-12 Big Ten Championship banner is unveiled before game time (scheduled for 7:15 p.m.).

Tip off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. with Mike Tirico and Dan Dakich on the call for ESPN (or WatchESPN.com). Join in the discussion before, during and after the game in the comments section below.

Pre-Game Reading:

    what a great offensive possession even with the misses…gettin after it on the offensive glass

  • Joel_C

    Stauskas was wide open for a 3 and clearly wanted the ball – when Burke didn’t pass it to him before a defender picked him up he was visibly annoyed. I love this guy, always wants the ball.

    4 fouls on Richard Howell with 14:51 to play.

  • JDR

    So many weapons – Stauskas outside, Morgan in the middle, Burke driving, Timmy and Robinson hitting everything in between…

  • MGoTweeter

    Can’t let em close back in like in the first half. Time to build on this lead

  • m hoops fan

    why can’t beilein recruit mcdonalds all americans like freshman pg sensation tyler lewis?

    • ShoelaceNation

      Hopefully that was sarcasm?

  • Tyler Carter

    Stauskas can’t get his wide open looks to fall, but hasn’t missed with a hand in his face.

  • Wayman Britt

    Looking at this team playing together, it’s hard to believe it’s still November

  • http://www.umhoops.com/ Dylan Burkhardt

    Trey Burke just stole Tyler Lewis’s lunch money.

  • Joel_C

    They can’t catch us when we shoot like this!!
    ….man I’m so used to saying that about the other team haha

  • Joel_C

    Stauskas is SO MONEY all the time!!

  • Tyler Carter

    Sorry if this has been addressed somewhere else, but why hasn’t JBart dressed the last couple games?

    • http://www.umhoops.com/ Dylan Burkhardt

      Injured.

  • Tyler Carter

    Michigan is really sticking it to THJ’s FG% by dumping the ball on him with no time on the shot clock.

  • Mattski

    Beilein should have called a time out a little earlier.

  • Wayman Britt

    Time for Trey to drive and get fouled.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mbainbridge2 Mike Bainbridge

    wow THJ was in position there

    • http://www.facebook.com/mbainbridge2 Mike Bainbridge

      terrrible call!!!!

  • http://www.umhoops.com/ Dylan Burkhardt

    That’s a charge.

    • Joel_C

      Sure looked like one. Oh well, we’re not d00k so we don’t get that call automatically every time.

  • http://www.umhoops.com/ Dylan Burkhardt

    Big time play by Tim Hardaway Jr. there.. get him off a ball screen curling to bucket.

  • Tyler Carter

    Ball needs to stay in Trey’s hand for this last minute. Take care of the ball.

  • Joel_C

    Disagree with Dakich, bad call there but a bad blocking foul on THJ a couple minutes ago anyway

  • Tyler Carter

    We didn’t close the game very well, but the late-game pressure is a great thing for this young team to experience for the first time. Anyone heading to Peoria for the Bradley game?
