Five Key Plays: Alabama A&M at Michigan

1. Michigan’s 13-0 run to start the game

Any doubts of Michigan coming out flat in what should be another easy win were squandered early in this one. After Alabama A&M scored the first bucket of the game, the Wolverines went on a 13-0 run to take a commanding lead and never really looked back. Burke started the run with a three from the top of the key, and Evan Smotrycz followed with a three of his own from the corner off a nice pass from Zack Novak — Smotrycz and Burke were a combined six of six from three in this one. Novak soon got into the scoring action, hitting a layup in transition. Tim Hardaway Jr. added a three, and Jordan Morgan capped the run with an alley-oop layup off another great look from Novak. From then on the game was never really in doubt, which is exactly the type of performance John Beilein was looking for. [click to continue…]

Derrick WaltonMichigan head coach John Beilein was on hand to watch 2013 Michigan commitment Derrick Walton and Harper Woods Chandler Park knock off Ann Arbor Skyline on Friday evening by a final score of 51-49. Chandler Park looked very strong in the first half and held a double digit lead for large stretches of the game. Walton started the game off with an “and one” and scored in a variety of ways, both from behind the arc and from driving into the lane. Chandler Park ended the first frame with a commanding 28-14 lead. The second half was a different story. After cutting the lead to 10 following the third quarter, Skyline climbed all the way back within two and had a chance to win the game on a last second heave. The ball clanged harmlessly off the rim and Chandler Park escaped with the two point win. Walton played the entire game and finished with a team high 19 points, ten rebounds and five assists.
