Huskers Fall to Michigan

Freshman Zak Irvin scored all 16 of his points in the first half, and No. 10 Michigan breezed to a 79-50 victory over Nebraska on Wednesday night.

The Wolverines (17-5, 9-1 Big Ten) were coming off their first conference defeat, a 63-52 loss at Indiana on Sunday. They nearly matched that scoring total with a 49-point first half against the Cornhuskers (11-10, 3-6).

Glenn Robinson III led Michigan with 23 points, and Caris LeVert added 16 points with five assists and seven rebounds. Nik Stauskas had nine points, eight assists and five rebounds.

Shavon Shields scored 13 points for Nebraska.

Michigan finished 13 of 31 from 3-point range despite a late dry spell from beyond the arc.
