Hunter Dickinson had already staked himself as a key contributor for Juwan Howard’s squad, but Dickinson took his performance to another level Thursday night.

The four-star freshman has been fantastic all season long and has scored in double digits in every game. He has also taken over the starter role to begin B1G play and continues to shine.

This time, Dickinson was returning for his first game against Maryland since leaving the state after high school. The 7-foot-2 center was rated the No. 2 prospect out of Maryland for the 2020 class, and he did not disappoint in his homecoming.

In his first game against the Terrapins, Dickinson put up his third double-double of the season behind a career-high 26 points to go with 11 rebounds. He also added a block and an assist while shooting an incredible 10-for-11 from the floor.

Rounding out Michigan’s 84-73 win was Franz Wagner who scored 19 points on 8-for-14 shooting to go with three steals

For Maryland, Donta Scott poured in 19 points on 7-for-10 shooting from the floor as the Terps shot an impressive 13-for-22 from three-point range. Unfortunately, Maryland was simply unable to keep up in the second half as the Wolverines shot even better at 58.8% from the floor for the game.
