Recap: Michigan vs. Youngstown State

The Michigan Insider's Josh Newkirk and Josh Henschke break down Michigan's 105-46 thrashing of Youngstown State Saturday night.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- It was another memorable night for the Michigan record books on Saturday.

The Wolverines walked away with a 106-45 victory over Youngstown State thanks to yet another triple-double performance from a U-M player. Derrick Walton Jr. got into the action with his name in the record books with his triple-double, the first time it has happened in a game since the 1996-97 season.

Key Factors:

- Derrick Walton Jr.: Walton joins Caris LeVert as the latest Wolverine to finish a game with a triple-double and the fifth player in program history to record one in a game. Walton finished with 10 points, 10 rebounds and also added 13 assists. Walton did not appear to be hampered by the ankle injury at all and appears to be at full-strength.

- Aubrey Dawkins: Dawkins also found a way to get involved both on the highlight reel and in the stat-sheet as well. Finishing a crushing alley-oop over a defender and with a 360-jam on the breakaway, Dawkins also added 19 points which is tied with LeVert for the team lead in scoring for the game.

- Rebounding: A sore spot for the Wolverines early on into the season, U-M also responded well with a strong rebounding night as well. Outrebounding the Penguins 46-23.
