GAME RECAP

The Wolverines could not be tamed in the first half. Led by forward Moritz Wagner, the Wolverines scored 52 points in the first half. Meanwhile Michigan guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman was also a force on offense. He scored a game high 24 points.

The Aggies managed to go on a small run before the half ended with TJ Starks draining a three as time expired, however Michigan headed to the locker room with a 24 point lead.

The second half did not get much better for the Aggies as they were forced to play a catch-up style of basketball. Michigan was able to exploit the panicking Aggies by taking advantage in transition.

To sum it all up it was as if this was a game of NBA 2K and the opponent quit at halftime.

To be fair Texas A&M center Tyler Davis had a really strong game in the post, but even his effort in the post was not enough to keep the game close.

Coming off of miracle win against Houston and now a statement win against Texas A&M, the Wolverines seem primed potentially win the entire tournament.

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Between the play of Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and Moritz Wagner it was difficult to choose who was better. Overall Wagner was forced to defend the best player on Texas A&M in Tyler Davis. Wagner also shot a better percentage and he really set the tone in the first half. On the day he finished with 21 points.
