Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Jordan Morgan scored a season-high 12 points and matched a season high with 10 rebounds to help No. 3 Michigan beat Arkansas 80-67 Saturday.

The Wolverines (9-0) are off to their best start since they won the first 11 games of the 1988-89 season, when they went on to win the program's only national title.

Michigan led by 13 in the first half, but the game got close after halftime.

The Razorbacks opened the second half with an 11-2 run to pull within two points and trailed 56-55 with 8:58 left. The Wolverines went on a 10-2 run and coasted to the win, John Beilein's 100th in six seasons at the school.

Marshawn Powell had 18 points for the Razorbacks (4-4).
