We first started with big man Al Horford who began the 2007 title defense for Florida with a win over Jackson State and we will continue down that path again for sure, but Saturday’s edition will be Glenn Robinson III with the Michigan Wolverines. The 4 seed Wolverines began with a matchup against the 13 seed South Dakota State Jackrabbits.
Wolters did a great job on Trey Burke early making him almost invisible out there and Michigan had to rely on their other pieces. Robinson III finished with 21 points, with 17 coming in the second half, on 8-for-9 shooting to help Michigan pull away 71-56 and advance to the Round of 32.
Robinson III told reporters about his hot shooting after the win:
My confidence has always been there, but tonight the ball just felt right coming out of my hand.
