Recap: Michigan vs. Cleveland State

Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) - Tim Hardaway Jr. tallied 17 points, six rebounds and four assists as No. 5 Michigan advanced to the semifinals of the Nit Season Tip-Off with a 77-47 rout over Cleveland State.

It was the Wolverines' (3-0) third consecutive win of at least 30 points to open the campaign.

"At Michigan, you come to win championships, and this is one of the most prestigious preseason tournaments," Michigan head coach John Beilein said.

Michigan, which came in shooting 25-of-40 from beyond the arc, made just 9- of-24 attempts Tuesday, but held a commanding 45-28 rebounding advantage.

Nik Stauskas netted 15 points, while Trey Burke added 12 points and seven helpers in the victory.

Anton Grady had 15 points to lead Cleveland State (2-1).

"I think there was some intimidation tonight coming into this building and playing Michigan. We really didn't play well in any facet of the game," Cleveland State head coach Gary Waters said.

Tim Kamczyc's 3-pointer cut the deficit to 19-12 for Cleveland State midway through the opening half, but the Wolverines closed the first 20 minutes on an elongated 23-2 surge.

Mitch McGary netted six points, while Burke added five during the run and a Hardaway triple with just under a minute to play in the stanza capped the swing and made it 42-14.

The Wolverines led by as many as 33 in the second frame.
