ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Eli Brooks scored 15 points and No. 20 Michigan overcame a sloppy performance to beat Tarleton State 65-54.

Moussa Diabate and Caleb Houstan scored 14 points apiece for Michigan (4-2), which committed 20 turnovers. Hunter Dickinson added nine points and 10 rebounds.

Montre Gipson led Tarleton State (1-5) with 17 points and Tahj Small added 12.

The Wolverines had 11 turnovers in the first 15 minutes but reeled off 10 unanswered points late in the half to gain a 31-22 halftime advantage.

Michigan was clinging to a 55-52 lead with under four minutes left, but two free throws by Brooks and dunks by Dickinson and Diabate helped the Wolverines to stave off the Texans.
