 ATLANTA (AP) - Michigan played most of the first half without AP player of the year Trey Burke, who was mired in foul trouble. He scored the Wolverines' first seven points, but picked up two fouls and ended up only playing six minutes in the first half.
No worry, though. Backup guard Spike Albrecht scored 17 in the first half for the Wolverines.
Fouls could play a role down the stretch.
Nik Stauskas also had two first-half fouls for Michigan, while the Cardinals' Wayne Blackshear, Luke Hancock and Russ Smith each have two fouls.
Speaking of stars gone missing, Smith was just 1 for 9 in the first half for Louisville.
