07:36 AM ET 01.03 | Forgive Glenn Robinson III for feeling at home in Minneapolis. A year ago, Robinson delivered the spinning, 360-degree exclamation point dunk in Michigan's rousing 83-75 win at Minnesota. Returning to Williams Arena on Thursday night, Robinson was up to his old tricks. ... Familiar "oohs" and "ahhs" filled The Barn. On the other end, Robinson blocked three Gopher shots after entering the game with one block all year. Then came Robinson's fourth block, an emphatic rejection on Minnesota's DeAndre Mathieu just 1 minute, 39 seconds into the second half. Robinson landed awkwardly. The game's plot twisted with his left ankle. With Robinson off the floor for the final 17 minutes, Michigan rallied around a pair of unlikely leaders to knock off Minnesota 63-60 in the Big Ten opener for both teams.

Good win for Michigan. Need as many of these as they can get to make the tourney.
