Michigan Beats Bryant At Ann Arbor

Morris leads Michigan to 87-71 victory over Bryant

      ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – Darius Morris had 26 points and 12
assists and Tim Hardaway Jr., added 20 points as Michigan beat
Bryant 87-71 Thursday night.
      The Wolverines (10-2) were playing their last game before Big
Ten action starts next week but were unable to blow out the private
Rhode Island school of 3,400 students.
      Vlad Kondratyev had 20 points to beat the Bulldogs (1-10), whose
only win this season is against Iona.
      Michigan tied a school record with 16 3s, matching the mark set
against Eastern Michigan in 2008.
      Both teams hit over 50 percent of their 3-point attempts in the
first half, but Michigan forced six turnovers while only committing
one as it built a 45-35 lead.
      Both teams continued to make outside shots in the second half.
The Wolverines, though, got enough stops and took care of the ball,
preventing Bryant from ever making a serious run.
