No. 2 Michigan remains unbeaten
Zavier Simpson scored 24 points and Jon Teske added 17 as No. 2 Michigan rolled to an 80-60 victory over visiting Northwestern to give the Wolverines the best start in school history.
Michigan (17-0, 6-0 Big Ten) started 16-0 on two previous occasions, but set a standard for wins to start a season by bolting to a 10-0 lead and not slowing down against the Wildcats (10-7, 1-5).
Northwestern was without leading scorer Vic Law because of a lower-body injury. The Wildcats lost by two to the Wolverines last month — one of only two Michigan games this season decided by a single digit.
