Harris helps Michigan top No. 15 Connecticut 68-63

Zack Novak made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 1 1/2 minutes left and Manny Harris followed with a layup to lift Michigan a 68-63 win over No. 15 Connecticut on Sunday. Harris finished with 18 points for the Wolverines (10-7), who earned the signature win they needed in a season that started with them ranked 15th, coming off their first NCAA tournament bid since 1998. The Huskies (11-6) have lost three straight for the first time since closing the 2006-07 season with four losses. Connecticut's Kemba Walker had 15, Gavin Edwards scored 14, Jerome Dyson had 13 and Stanley Robinson added 11. The Huskies hurt their chances by missing four foul shots in the last 45 seconds.
