Michigan rebounded from its loss to Virginia with a 76-66 win over Iowa State in Crisler Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Iowa State controlled the first five minutes and the last five minutes, but Michigan dominated the middle portion. After falling behind 10-4 in the first five minutes, Michigan got eight straight points from point guard Trey Burke. The freshman made a layup and two threes to put Michigan ahead. The two teams traded baskets before an Eso Akunne three sparked a 10-0 Michigan run right before the half.

Michigan took a 34-25 lead into the half and then began the second with a 21-8 run to blow the game open. Iowa State made it a ballgame in the last few minutes, cutting a 22-point Michigan lead down to six with 22 seconds remaining, but Michigan hit its free throws to seal the win.

Tim Hardaway Jr. led the way with 19 points and six rebounds, while Jordan Morgan turned in his best performance of the season with 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting. Zack Novak added eight points and 11 rebounds, while Burke had 13 points.

Michigan now has a week off before returning to action next Saturday against Oakland in the Palace at Auburn Hills in Detroit. Oakland is also 6-2, with losses to then-#15 Alabama and Arkansas but beat Tennessee last week, so they won’t be an easy win.
