Michigan 87, Maryland 63

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Mike Smith made three early 3-pointers as No. 7 Michigan raced to a 17-3 lead, and the Wolverines had little difficulty beating Maryland 87-63.

Michigan made its first five 3s - Isaiah Livers had the other two - in an opening flurry that put the Wolverines (12-1, 7-1 Big Ten) in immediate control. Michigan led 42-25 at halftime and stretched its advantage to as many as 25 points in the second.

Livers led Michigan with 20 points and Franz Wagner contributed 15. Smith had 11.

The Wolverines were coming off their first loss of the season, Saturday at Minnesota. Eli Brooks missed that game with a foot injury. He returned Tuesday and scored seven points.

Maryland (8-7, 2-6) was led by Donta Scott's 13 points, but the Terrapins couldn't keep up with Michigan's terrific outside shooting. The Wolverines went 12 of 24 from 3-point range and Maryland was 4 of 19.
