Robinson, Burke help No.3 Michigan to victory over Arkansas

Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) - Glenn Robinson III scored 17 points and Trey Burke added 16 with seven assists, as No. 3 Michigan pulled away down the stretch for an 80-67 triumph over Arkansas.

Tim Hardaway Jr. tallied 14 points, while Jordan Morgan and Nik Stauskas each tallied 12. Morgan also had 10 rebounds for the Wolverines (9-0), who gave head coach John Beilein his 100th win at the school.

Michigan is 9-0 for the first time since the 1988-89 season, when the Wolverines went 11-0 on the way to the program's first national championship season.

Marshawn Powell scored 18 for the Razorbacks (4-4), who also received 13 points from Kikko Haydar and 10 apiece from Hunter Mickelson and Rickey Scott. Arkansas has lost four of its last five contests.

Morgan's jumper capped a series of 10 straight points for the Wolverines, as they expanded their lead to 22-11 midway through the first half. The difference remained the same (42-32) at the break.

Although the Razorbacks never led, they did get within a point a couple of times in the second half, the last at 56-55 on Scott's layup inside nine minutes.

Stauskas and Spike Albrecht then drilled 3-pointers and the Wolverines were able to move the margin to double digits with under three minutes left.

Game Notes

Beilein is the seventh Michigan coach to reach 100 victories in a tenure ... Arkansas, which played its first true road game of the year, is 0-10 all-time against teams ranked No. 3 in the country ... Michigan hosted an SEC opponent for the first time in nearly a decade (70-66 win over Vanderbilt on Dec. 21, 2002). The Razorbacks beat the Wolverines in Fayetteville on Jan. 21, 2012, 66-64.
