Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) - Trey Burke scored 18 points and No. 2 Michigan overcame an off-shooting night to earn a 62-47 victory over Nebraska at the Crisler Center and match the best start in program history.

Tim Hardaway Jr. added 15 points and 11 rebounds to help the Wolverines (16-0, 3-0 Big Ten) obtain only their second-ever 16-0 beginning and first since 1985-86. Glenn Robinson III and Nik Stauskas contributed 14 and 13 points, respectively, to the triumph.

Robinson made good on 5-of-6 field goal attempts, but Michigan prevailed despite shooting a season-low 38.9 percent as a team and hitting just 3-of-17 tries from 3-point range. The 62 points were also the fewest netted by the Wolverines this season.

Nebraska (9-7, 0-3) shot only 33.3 percent, however, en route to its third straight loss to open its conference schedule. Ray Gallegos paced the Cornhuskers with 19 points and Dylan Talley had 12 in the setback.
