We’re only a few weeks away from Selection Sunday, and there’s only a handful of games left for teams to pick up signature wins. This weekend, some did, and some didn’t.
Glenn Robinson III was mired in a slump entering Sunday’s game versus Penn State. Averaging just 4.5 points and shooting 29 percent in the previous four games, Robinson went a perfect 6-of-6 from the field in Michigan’s 79-71 win. Playing aggressive again, five of Robinson III’s buckets were slams, including a few of the highlight-reel variety. Watch the freshman’s dunk-a-thon that helped him tie a career high with 21 points now.

The lead touched 31 points before garbage time began, and Michigan’s deep reserves made a run to bring the margin down at the final buzzer.
