ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Tim Hardaway Jr. had 17 points and six rebounds, and No. 5 Michigan advanced to the semifinals of the NIT Season Tip-Off with a 77-47 victory over Cleveland State on Tuesday night.

Nik Stauskas scored 15 points, and Trey Burke added 12 points and seven assists. Michigan went on a 29-5 run to finish the first half. It was 42-14 at halftime.

Anton Grady led the Vikings with 15 points.

The Wolverines shot 25 of 40 from 3-point range in their first two games but went only 9 of 24 on Tuesday.
