Arkansas vs. Michigan: Wolverines look to stay perfect

Gregory Shamus

John Beilein will go for his 100th win as Michigan's coach as the No. 3 Wolverines host the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday.

Star point guard Trey Burke will lead No. 3 Michigan up against Arkansas on Saturday in Ann Arbor as the Wolverines look to extend their record to a perfect 9-0 for the first time since their national championship season in 1988-89. The Wolverines also hope to earn coach John Beilein his 100th victory at the school.

The Razorbacks head into the game with a 4-3 record and a heavy underdog against one of the best teams in the nation. Arkansas scores 82.1 points a game, but has also allowed opponents to score 74.3. The Razorbacks pulled out a 66-64 win in a matchup between the two teams last season.

Meanwhile, the Wolverines have won games with defense -- their opponents have scored an average of only 57.6 points per game -- and hitting 42.5 percent of their three-point shots. Burke leads the Wolverines with 17 points per game and in his last two home games has recorded 18 assists and no turnovers.

The game is scheduled to tip off at noon ET and will air on CBS.
