1. On a day in which freshmen played a major part in showing how bright the Big Ten's future is, Iowa's Anthony Clemmons quietly had what might be his best game of his young career. It wasn't a career high for points (he scored 14 against Iowa State), and it wasn't a career high for assists (set two games ago vs Coppin State) but he had 12 points, 7 assists and 3 boards while playing the 2nd most minutes he's played, and against the best competition. He also made 2-3 3s, and has now made 45% for the year.
2. Continuing with the freshmen theme, Michigan's Glenn Robinson III had a somewhat similar game to Clemmons. It wasn't his career high for points (1 shy) nor his career high for rebounds (2 shy), but it was the first career double-double for Robinson. He led the Wolverines in scoring, and also extended four possessions with offensive boards. Over his past four games he's averaging 15.8 ppg.
3. Mitch McGary, yet another freshmen, matched a few career highs including minutes (20) and rebounds (11). He also established a new best with 3 blocks.
4. Michigan won 95-67 in a 67 possession game. They already have the No. 1 offense in the nation, and are the only team scoring more than 1.20 points per possession. The 1.42 scored today is the 2nd best this season (behind 1.43 in the opener vs Slippery Rock) and it tied the most that Iowa has surrendered since last year's season ending loss to Oregon.
5. Michigan, the 252nd fastest tempo offense in the nation, scored 16 fast break points. Iowa, the 47th, scored zero.
