No. 20 Michigan routs Alabama A&M

Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) - Trey Burke scored 19 points, Evan Smotrycz contributed a double-double of 17 points and 11 rebounds and 20th-ranked Michigan cruised to an 87-57 victory over Alabama A&M at Crisler Arena.

Tim Hardaway Jr. and Zack Novak posted 13 points apiece for the Wolverines (9-2), who shot 55 percent from the floor for the game. Burke, Hardaway Jr. and Novak each had four assists.

"We put together 40 minutes of some consistency to our game with the exception of again, the thing we need to shore up and work at, decision-making," said Michigan head coach John Beilein.

Casey Canty paced the Bulldogs (2-4) with 15 points, while Jeremy Ingram scored 14 in defeat.

Michigan netted 13 straight points after the Bulldogs' Jeremy Crutcher opened the game with a jumper. Alabama A&M managed to trim its deficit to five at 14-9 after two Canty free throws, but a three-point play by Burke put the Wolverines up 31-15 with 7:42 remaining in the first half.

Although Alabama A&M momentarily pulled within single digits, Michigan, behind 48 percent shooting, led 41-27 at halftime.

The Wolverines went on a 15-2 run to start the second half and their lead ballooned to 74-44 on a Smotrycz jumper with less than eight minutes remaining.

"With a team that size and that strong we had to keep the intensity up," Alabama A&M head coach Willie Hayes said. "We played well in the first half but came out lackluster in the second."
