Who was Michigan's MVP in its 79-59 win over Florida?

By Pete Cunningham

Michigan was absolutely dominant against Florida on Sunday, defeating the Gators 79-59 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington to advance to its first Final Four since 1993.

Nik Stauskas had a red hot first half, Trey Burke was Trey Burke and Mitch McGary continued to shine in the paint.

Who was the Wolverines' MVP?

Stauskas for sure. He's been so quiet this season. I'm glad he's finally showing what he's capable of. Go blue!

That game was a lot of fun to watch. Even the announcers couldn't talk Florida into winning.......

For this one game, Stauskas. Being that hot early crushed Florida's will in my opinion.

When was the last time Nik Stauskas hit five 3-point shots in a row? How many games was Nik essentially missing in action? Do not get me wrong I was delighted with Nik's success as well as that of almost every other Wolverine. However, most of Nik's shots were from his favorite corner and not really contested. I give credit to Trey getting the ball to him. Trey Burke is the engine for this team as he has been all year. He was again today which is why I voted for him as the most valuable player; it is not always the player who scores the most. There are many more aspects to the game.

Trey only had one assist to Nik for his 6 3-pointers (per a different article I just read). Tim Hardaway had 3 of the assists on those. You sound like coach Donovan, who also mistakenly gave all the credit to Trey Burke. This was a team effort. Stauskas and McGary came up huge again today.
