Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) - All it took for Michigan to end a two-game
skid was to play a team with a longer losing streak.
But it sure wasn't easy.
Trey Burke scored 29 points and Glenn Robinson III added 21 with 10 rebounds,
as the fourth-ranked Wolverines kept Penn State winless in Big Ten play with a
79-71 victory at the Crisler Center.
Nik Stauskas chipped in 18 points for Michigan (22-4, 9-4 Big Ten), which had
lost three of its last four and was coming off a humbling 75-52 loss at
Michigan State on Tuesday.
Jermaine Marshall and Sasa Borovnjak each scored 17 points for the Nittany
Lions (8-17, 0-13), who led for most of the first half Sunday and never
trailed by double digits. Penn State still came up short and has lost 13
straight games since an 84-74 win over Duquesne on Dec. 29.
