-- Michigan lost several players off last year’s NCAA runner-up team, but the Wolverines still are among Big Ten’s elite. Even with two players departed to the NBA and sophomore center Mitch McCary out for the season with a back injury, they are atop the league standings and ranked No. 21 in the nation. They remained unbeaten in league play with an impressive win over Wisconsin on Saturday.
-- Iowa trailed Minnesota by 10 points with a little more than a minute left in the first half Sunday, then outscored the Golden Gophers 61-30 the rest of the way to win 94-73. Five Hawkeyes scored in double figures, led by Aaron White with 18, Josh Oglesby with 17 and Devyn Marble with 16.
-- Michigan has plenty of players on the roster with good bloodlines. Glenn Robinson III is the son of former Purdue great Glenn Robinson. Jon Horford’s father, Tito, and brother, Al, both played in the NBA. Freshman reserve Andrew Dakich is the son of former Indiana player, now ESPN commentator Dan Dakich. And freshman center Mark Donnal is the brother of Iowa offensive lineman Andrew Donnal.
