Michigan-Minnesota Preview (The Associated Press)

(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’s over too 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 more 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. “The level of intensity that we had in practice (Tuesday) was very high,” said Burke, Michigan’s star point guard. “We know just from watching film that we had a lot to learn, a lot to get better, a lot of adjustments to make.” The Wolverines (16-1, 3-1) were uncharacteristically sloppy at the start of Sunday’s game at Ohio State, falling behind by 21 points in the first half before rallying to force a tense finish.

Aaron Craft stays close to Michigan’s Trey Burke during the second half. (AP) “I’m not going to lie,” said Ohio State’s Aaron Craft, who was guarding Burke on the play. “I thought it was going in when I turned around.” It didn’t, and the Buckeyes won, 56-53. In the process they denied their hated rivals a chance to be No. 1 in the rankings Monday, and also ended the annual Unbeaten Watch in college basketball. Arizona (14-0) was taken down last Thursday at Oregon. Duke (15-0) lost Saturday at North Carolina State. That left the Wolverines (16-0) as the last unbeaten standing, and they didn’t stand long Sunday. Michigan fell behind 4-3 and never led again, despite mounting a valiant comeback after a first-half meltdown. It was an…
