The Mountaineers couldn't stop Trey Burke and undefeated Michigan.

The West Virginia Mountaineers couldn't stop Trey Burke and No. 3 Michigan Saturday, falling to the Wolverines 81-66 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Michigan (11-0) shot 56 percent from the field, led by Burke, who went 12-of-16 en route to 27 points. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 25 points for the Wolverines. For WVU, Terry Henderson scored 23 points, but the Mountaineers were just 20-of-52 from the field.

The Wolverines jumped out to a big lead early, going on a 13-2 run to start the game. They also led 25-9. The Mountaineers climbed back and trailed by just five late in the first half, but Nik Stauskas made a big three-pointer with two-and-a-half minutes remaining in the half, and Michigan ended up taking an 11-point lead into the locker room. The Wolverines held the Mountaineers at arm's length through most of the second half -- Henderson hit a three with four-and-a-half minutes left to bring the Mountaineers within seven, but that was as close as it got.

WVU takes on Oakland at home on Wednesday.
