Robinson's shooting propels MI to ugly win over Rutgers

Miami came into Raleigh as one the ACC's worst 3-point shooting teams, but made 10 of 19 tries from behind the arc for its best output in a league game. The Huskers, who led for the final 35 minutes of the game, improved to 14-6 overall and 5-2 in the Big Ten with their seventh consecutive true road win. Vegas has a tendency to set the total high when the Scarlet Knights are involved, as seven of their 12 games have ended under the O/U total.

Moritz Wagner led a balanced scoring effort for MI, dropping a game-high 16 points on 6-for-13 shooting and adding six rebounds as the Wolverines improved to 17-5 overall and 6-3 in Big Ten play. Looking past the Ohio State game, the Husker schedule reveals that none of their remaining opponents are now ranked in the Top 25, and it seems highly unlikely that any of them would make the jump later in the season.

Corey Sanders scored 12 points for Rutgers (12-9, 2-6), and Deshawn Freeman added 11 points and 11 rebounds. Cincore hit 5-of-11 shots from the field while holding Rutgers scoring star Tyler Scaife in check on the defensive end.

Nebraska's edge on the boards allowed the Huskers to overcome a 20-10 deficit in turnovers.

MI shot an uncharacteristic 37.5 percent overall (21 of 56) and 22.2 percent from 3-point range (4 of 18) in the loss. Nebraska's free throw rate was their largest strength over MI.

The Big Red held Rutgers to just 29.3 percent (17-58) shooting, including 3-for-14 in the fourth quarter.

After a dominant 72-52 win over the No. 23 Michigan Wolverines at home on Thursday, Nebraska will travel to Columbus, Ohio, to play its second straight game against a ranked opponent.

Against Rutgers, Michigan (17-5, 6-3) was in control throughout and steadily built a sizeable lead, ultimately going up by 15 at 54-39 with 5:41 remaining on a 3-pointer by Wagner and then by 17 with under a minute left. Simon added a jumper before Bria Stallworth scored on a strong layup as the shot clock expired with 1:24 left in the quarter.

The Scarlet Knights have been outscored by an average of 7.4 points in their last five games. The Knights' next three games are against Nebraska, Penn State and IL, all teams that are very beatable and that Rutgers should have no problem competing against.

The Scarlet Knights rank 30th in blocks per game (5.0) while the Wolverines rank 110th (3.4). Virginia shot almost 46 percent in the second half while holding Wake Forest to 30 percent shooting after halftime. Cain led the Huskers with 10 first-half points, while Simon and Cincore each contributed five points. Isaiah Livers chipped in eight points for U-M.

Matthews opened the scoring with a drive and finish to put the Wolverines up eight, but each time the Wolverines seemed primed to pull away, Rutgers answered with a run.
