The Wolverines went on an 11-0 run early to take a 17-6 lead and never looked back. Sophomore Jordan Poole led the Wolverines with a game-high 22 points.
Minnesota was led by yet another double-double from Jordan Murphy, who scored 18 points and secured 15 rebounds. Daniel Oturu added 18 points and 12 boards, but Amir Coffey struggled mightily for six points on 2-15 shooting.
