Let’s get two things out of the way here first: 1.) Bo Ryan gives pretty entertaining postgame interviews, ones often peppered with a joke or two; and 2.) BTN analyst Tim Doyle’s Northwestern career was a lot better than most remember. OK, now that that’s out of the way, it’s time to get to Ryan’s postgame interview with Doyle following Sunday’s 47-41 victory at Nebraska.

No. 2 Michigan came up with more than its share of highlights (watch all of them) during Sunday’s victory over Iowa. None, however, were bigger than Tim Hardaway Jr.‘s terrific one-handed slam. In transition, Hardaway Jr. outraced several Hawkeyes down the floor, took the pass from Trey Burke, and threw it down over Iowa’s Eric May. Watch the dunk here, and see some Twitter reaction in this post.
Trey Burke had 19 points and a career-high 12 assists, part of another stellar offensive performance from No. 2 Michigan in a 95-67 win over Iowa on Sunday. Glenn Robinson III added 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Wolverines, who had only 17 points with 7:00 remaining in the first half before overwhelming the Hawkeyes (11-4, 0-2 Big Ten) with a flurry of dunks, 3-pointers and other highlights.
