Trey Burke had 18 points and eight assists, and No. 1 Michigan (20-1, 7-1 Big Ten) was nearly flawless at the start on Wednesday night en route to a 68-46 victory over Northwestern at home in Ann Arbor.
The Wolverines, at No. 1 in the AP poll this week for the first time since the 1992-93 season, made 10 of their first 11 shots and went the entire first half without a turnover. They didn't commit a foul, either, until the final minute of the half.
Alex Olah led the Wildcats (12-10, 3-6) with 10 points.
Cincinnati 62, Rutgers 54 - Sean Kilpatrick scored 19 points, and the slow-starting No. 24 Bearcats (17-4, 5-3 Big East) stiffened their defense in the second half to overcome a 10-point deficit and top the Scarlet Knights (12-8, 3-6) in Cincinnati.
