The Palace of Auburn Hills, Auburn Hills, Michigan
Glenn Robinson III leads No. 4 Michigan past No.13 South Dakota State
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Trey Burke hit the ground with a thud, and a rough night suddenly turned downright painful.The Michigan star left the court for a bit but came back pretty quickly. No big deal -- Burke was OK, and his teammates had this game under control.

Around Champ Week
X factor: Nate Wolters, South Dakota State's star, couldn't get into a rhythm against the Wolverines (10 points, 3-for-14). Hardaway, Robinson and Burke kept the pressure on the Jackrabbits' star all night.
That was ... balance: Burke is the headliner, the player that everyone talks about when they discuss Michigan's potential. But the team's win over South Dakota State gave the Wolverines a chance to prove that they have other talented players on their roster.
