Binghamton vs. Michigan: Wolverines go for 10th straight win

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

In their only previous meeting, Michigan defeated Binghamton, 59-46, in 2004.

The Michigan Wolverines will go for their 10th consecutive victory when they host the Binghamton Bearcats on Tuesday night. At 9-0, the No. 3 Wolverines are off to their best start since 1988, when they began the season at 11-0 and eventually went on to win the NCAA Championship.

Michigan has gone fairly untested so far this season, with just one win over a ranked opponent (then-No. 18 N.C. State). In nine games the Wolverines have won by an average margin of 19.9 points. They are led by a trio of guards, Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr., and Nik Stauskas. The three combine for 46 points per game.

Binghamton seems like an unlikely candidate for an upset. The Bearcats are just 2-8 this season, and they have lost four games in a row. Since joining Division I in 2001, Binghamton is 0-8 against Top 25 opponents. Still, Binghamton's 2-8 start has to be seen as an improvement over last year's 0-26 start. Last season, the Bearcats didn't earn their second victory until March 1. One of Binghamton's bright spots has been freshman guard Jordan Reed, who leads the team with 18.3 points and 10 rebounds per game.
