Former Wolverine Duncan Robinson discusses Michigan's scorching start and big blowout over Wisconsin
Michigan’s men’s basketball team is off to a dream start as the Wolverines are 11-0. That strong start went to another level on Tuesday when Michigan steamrolled No. 9 Wisconsin.
This start has Michigan fans beaming with excitement. Wolverine alums also are displaying their excitement. The latest alums displaying their Michigan pride are Jalen Rose and Duncan Robinson. They did so on Wednesday’s Jalen and Jacoby program when Robinson, a current Miami Heat three-point specialist, made an appearance to discuss the start for Juwan Howard’s squad.

“They’re just fun to watch,” Robinson said. “Juwan has them rolling. No surprise to me, as I’m sure it’s no surprise to you (Jalen Rose). He just has them firing on all cylinders. They’re just having fun, which is my favorite thing as a fan and as an alum of the program, just to see those guys enjoying the moment, playing together, making the most of opportunities.
“Even in this strange year that we’re all going through, to see them come together like that. Particularly last night, I had the chance to watch some of the highlights. That was a lot of fun.”
Robinson has the right to be fired up. Michigan came through and put a whooping on a top-1o Wisconsin team as the Wolverines won 77-54 and did so with runs of 14-0 and 29-6.
Robinson came to Ann Arbor after one year playing Div. III ball. After averaging more than 9 points per game as a senior with Michigan, Robinson went undrafted in 2018 but seems to have found a nice home in Miami. He’s currently averaging nearly 12 points per game in South Beach.
