Maui Invitational, Michigan Vs. Memphis: Wolverines Lead 37-31 At Halftime

Despite turning the ball over eight times in the first half, Michigan is leading Memphis after 20 minutes by a score of 37-31 in the first game of the 2011 Maui Invitational. Michigan and Memphis have gone back and forth, and the Wolverines closed out the first half with a 10-0 run to take the six-point lead into the break.

As the teams were exiting the floor following the first half, there was some shoving at midcourt. Trey Burke blocked a shot to end the half and was amped up about it. Apparently some Memphis players didn't take kindly to that, and players from the two teams had to be separated.

Michigan certainly has a reason to be pumped up after that half. They played very well against the No. 8 Memphis Tigers, especially Tim Hardaway Jr. He leads all scorers with 11 points, and he also has three rebounds and two assists. Trey Burke is right behind him on the boxscore with nine points, one rebound and two assists.

Memphis' scoring is a bit more balanced. Seven players have scored for the Tigers and none of them have more than eight points.
