Five Key Plays: Penn State at Michigan

Burke grabs back-to-back steals for early baskets


Despite a sold out crowd, Crisler Arena felt a bit lifeless early on. Students are still on break and Michigan didn’t have a lot of energy out of the gate as Penn State jumped out to a small early lead. These back to back steals by Burke helped calm some nerves and get Michigan into the flow of the game. Both are great active defensive plays even if the finishes at the other end were a bit dicey. Burke gets bailed out with a goal tend on the first and on the second it looks like he probably traveled. Evan Smotrycz actually leads Michigan in steals but with Burke’s hands and quickness he could and should pick up more steals as the year continues.

Zack Novak emphasized that point before the game and John Beilein expressed relief after the game, admitting that he wasn’t sure how his team would react to Big Ten play. The Nittany Lions are far from the best the Big Ten has to offer but Michigan put together a convincing win comprised of relatively ordinary individual performances. Despite an average performance, Michigan dominated the game in all facets and cruised to an easy 71-53 victory.
