Wolverines hold off Penn State for road victory
Written by Matt Pargoff   

 

Leading by as many as 13 points in the first half, the Wolverines lost momentum to Penn State just before the break, and saw their advantage completely dissolve early in the second half. Faced with the challenge of halting that swing in the tide of the game, Michigan held on and reasserted itself midway through the second half, once again pulling ahead and locking up a 72-63 victory.

Duncan Robinson had a big first half, scoring 12 of his team leading 19 points before halftime. In the second half, it was Moritz Wagner that scored 12, finishing on the night with 18.

Jordan Poole also had a strong showing off the bench, scoring 13 points.

With the win, Michigan improves to 23-7 on the season and 12-5 in Big Ten play. The Wolverines will wrap up the regular season on Saturday at noon, playing at Maryland on ESPN. In the previous meeting with the Terrapins, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman hit a pair of last second free throws to secure a 68-67 victory.
