Michigan Sails By VCU 78-53

AUBURN HILLS (97.1 The Ticket/AP) – Mitch McGary scored a game high 21 points and 13 rebounds and the Michigan Wolverines beat the Virginia Commonwealth Rams 78-53 during the third round of the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at The Palace of Auburn Hills Saturday.

Trey Burke scored 18 points and Tim Hardaway, Jr and Glenn Robinson, III each had 14 points to help the Wolverines advance to the Sweet 16 round – for the first time in almost 20 years.

Hardaway is one of three Michigan players with fathers who were in the NBA, and the Wolverines aren’t the only team with some famous names in this NCAA tournament. John Stockton’s son plays for Gonzaga, and Danny Manning’s is with Kansas. Several of college basketball’s top performers are from athletic families, and some of these players have already conjured memories of generations past.
