No. 16 Michigan clinches share of Big Ten title

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Nik Stauskas scored 21 points and Glenn Robinson III provided an emotional lift with his dunks as No. 16 Michigan clinched at least a share of the Big Ten title with a 66-56 victory over Minnesota on Saturday night.

The Wolverines (21-7, 13-3) didn't arrive at the Crisler Center expecting to have a chance to lock up their third banner in three years, but Illinois changed that by upsetting Michigan State in East Lansing.

Michigan can clinch its first outright conference title since 1986 with a win Tuesday at Illinois or next Saturday at home against Indiana.

Caris LeVert added 13 points for Michigan, and Jordan Morgan had 10 rebounds. The Crisler Center crowd wasn't told about Michigan State's loss until after the game ended.

Austin Hollins led Minnesota (18-12, 7-10) with 16 points. Andre Hollins had 10 on 3-of-10 shooting.
