Recap: Michigan vs. Binghamton

Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) - Trey Burke finished with 19 points, five assists and four rebounds as No. 3 Michigan downed Binghamton, 67-39, at Crisler Center.

Nik Stauskas hit four three-pointers to account for all of his 12 points for the Wolverines (10-0), who look to keep their winning ways when they host West Virginia on Saturday night.

"We weren't undefeated at this time last year and we have some tough competition coming up," Burke said. "We're not looking past anybody, but we have Big Ten games coming up. We're happy that we're 10-0, and just taking things game by game."

Jordan Reed totaled 11 points and eight boards for the Bearcats (2-9), who have dropped five in a row.

"I'm proud of our kids," Bearcats head coach Tommy Dempsey said. "I thought our effort was terrific. In this environment against a team of this national caliber, to hold them in the 60s spoke about our communication and hustle. We ran good offense and got quality shots. Unfortunately we just didn't knock down enough of them."
