ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Trey Burke and Michigan can put aside for now the idea of being ranked No. 1 in the country.
An undefeated start to the season? That too is over after the Wolverines sputtered last weekend at Ohio State.
Now the focus is on a Big Ten schedule that will test Burke and his teammates plenty over the next few weeks. No. 5 Michigan plays at No. 9 Minnesota on Thursday night, part of a nine-game stretch for the Wolverines that began with the loss to the Buckeyes and will eventually include six road games.
Minnesota (15-2, 3-1 Big Ten) leads the Big Ten in offensive rebounds, and the Golden Gophers will challenge a Michigan team that has done a terrific job limiting second chances this season. The Wolverines (16-1, 3-1) have been preparing for another physical game around the basket.
