Freshman Robinson blending in for No. 2 Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Glenn Robinson III is making the adjustment to college look awfully easy for No. 2 Michigan. A 20-point, 10-rebound effort against Iowa on Sunday was his first double-double - and after several energizing alley-oop dunks, it was impossible to ignore the 6-foot-6 freshman. The son of the former Purdue star with the same name, Robinson has been content to blend in quietly in his first season at Michigan, but that doesn't mean he isn't contributing. Nicknamed "Light Rob" because of his ability to score and rebound without much fanfare, Robinson cedes most of the attention to standout point guard Trey Burke and talented scorer Tim Hardaway Jr. A starter since the opening game, Robinson is averaging 12.5 points and shooting 59 percent from the field. Wednesday night the Wolverines host Nebraska at 7 p.m.
