Michigan routs Northwestern 74-51

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Nik Stauskas scored 18 points and Glenn Robinson III added 12 to lead Michigan to a 74-51 victory over Northwestern on Sunday.

The Wolverines (10-4, 2-0) have won six straight over the Wildcats, and this victory wasn't much different than Michigan's two routs last season. Northwestern (7-8, 0-2) trailed by only seven at the half but couldn't keep up. Jordan Morgan had eight points and eight rebounds for the Wolverines, who played without star big man Mitch McGary, who is out with a back problem.

Morgan and Jon Horford have been filling in down low, and they provided more than enough muscle against Northwestern. Horford had seven points and eight rebounds.

Drew Crawford led the Wildcats with 17 points, but scored only four of them in the second half.
