Big Ten Vs. ACC Challenge: Michigan Trails Virginia At Halftime

The Michigan Wolverines are off to a shaky start in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge during their game against the ACC's Virginia Cavaliers. The Wolverines are playing a bit slower than they might like as Virginia controlled the tempo in the first half and find themselves trailing 24-23 at halftime.

Tim Hardaway Jr. was stifled in the first as he only got one shot up in the first half before committing his second foul, earning himself a spot on the bench before any further foul trouble came. Fellow guards Trey Burke and Zack Novak paced the Wolverines in the first half with 15 of the team's 24 points.

Virginia was led by sixth-year senior Mike Scott as he scored eight points and grabbed seven rebounds in the first half. Sammy Zeglinski provided a spark, too, as his three-pointer with just over one minute left in the first half gave the Cavaliers their first lead (23-20) since a 3-0 start that was also provided by a Zeglinski three-pointer.

The Wolverines have lost just one this season, during last week's Maui Invitational when they fell to the sixth-ranked Duke Blue Devils. Michigan will play the Iowa State Hawkeyes in their next game on Saturday night.
