ANN ARBOR, Mich. ó Trey Burke scored 19 points and freshman Nik Stauskas added 12 to lead No. 3 Michigan to a 67-39 victory over Binghamton (2-9) on Tuesday night. The Wolverines (10-0) are off to their best start since their national title season of 1988-89, and this win was every bit a mismatch.
NO. 10 ILLINOIS 65, NORFOLK ST. 54
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. ó Brandon Paul scored 14 points and D.J. Richardson overcame a shoulder injury to add 11, helping Illinois hold off Norfolk State. The Illini (11-0), coming off a win at Gonzaga that bumped them into the top 10, were sluggish against the Spartans (6-6).

Richardson left late in the first half with a badly bruised shoulder but returned. His layup with just under two minutes remaining put the Illini up 56-51 and they held on for the win.
