Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) - Trey Burke had 22 points and nine assists and was one of five Michigan players in double-digit points as the fifth- ranked Wolverines routed IUPUI, 91-54, in a NIT Season Tip-Off.

Glenn Robinson III posted 21 points and six rebounds, Nik Stauskas scored 11 points, while Jordan Morgan and Tim Hardaway Jr. each had 10 for the Wolverines (2-0), who beat Slippery Rock by 38 points on Friday.

John Hart had 15 points and was the only player in double-digits for the Jaguars (1-1), who beat Utah Valley in their opener on Friday.

It stayed close early and IUPUI led by one point, but two free throws from Hardaway, a Burke 3-pointer and a bucket from Robinson gave the Wolverines a 14-9 lead.

The Jaguars had cut the deficit to one point later in the first half, but Michigan closed out the frame with a 14-4 run to take a 45-31 advantage into the break.

Michigan scored the first seven points of the second half for a 52-31 lead after a Morgan layup.

IUPUI kept it respectable over the next several minutes, but went close to six minutes without a point late in the game as Michigan pulled away.
