No. 2 Michi­gan re­mains un­beaten

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - COLLEGE BASKETBALL -

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.
