Pick an MVP, and your favorite ridiculous play, from Michigan's 95-67 win over Iowa

By Pete Cunningham


From left to right, Trey Burke, Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary all had highlight reel plays on Sunday against Iowa and made a case for game MVP.

The No. 2 Michigan men's basketball team fell behind early, but eventually took care of business in a 95-67 win over Iowa at the Crisler Center on Sunday.

There were plenty of highlight reel plays in the game, but a one-handed slam from Tim Hardaway Jr., a crossover, step back bucket from Trey Burke and some alley-oop slams from Glenn Robinson III were particularly ridiculous. All three players had solid contributions and could have a case made for MVP of the game. Who was your MVP on Sunday?

Oh no, you're letting us comment about Michigan basketball ont he site? This could get out of hand, better shut it down ASAP. But more seriously, this team is amazing. The level of depth is awesome. Stauskas is so arrogant, you have to love it. McGary coming into form now, really stepped up the last two games. Burke Hardaway and Robinson... what can you say about that lethal trio.

I thought Mitch McGary took his game to the next level today. His monster block in the first half was the spark this team needed to finish off the Hawkeyes. Yes, Hardaway, Burke, and Robinson had great games, as usual, but having a big man in the middle with McGary's emerging talent is exactly what this Michigan team needs. It's getting to the point that I tune in to the games to be amazed instead of tuning in to see if they can win.
