Michigan finds its offense, beats Iowa in Big Ten opener

Ann Arbor — Michigan was looking for a remedy after Tuesday’s rough shooting performance in Louisville.

Iowa’s defense proved to be the perfect remedy.

The No. 4 Wolverines used a balanced scoring attack and withstood a career-high 44 points from Iowa big man Luka Garza to get the sour taste out of their mouth with a 103-91 win in the Big Ten opener Friday at Crisler Center

Freshman wing Franz Wagner had 18 points and senior center Jon Teske and senior guard Zavier Simpson each scored 16 for Michigan (8-1, 1-0 Big Ten), which shot 55.
