ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Moe Wagner had 18 points and seven rebounds, and Michigan made a school-record 19 3-pointers in a 97-53 rout of Central Arkansas on Tuesday night.

The Wolverines (8-3) also set a school record with 45 attempts from 3-point range, easily handling Central Arkansas’ zone defense. Michigan even made its first 11 field goal attempts from inside the arc — its first miss from there didn’t come until early in the second half.

Jordan Howard scored 14 points for Central Arkansas (1-9). The Bears have played only one home game all season.

Zak Irvin scored 16 points for Michigan, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman had 14 and Duncan Robinson added 12. Those three made four 3-pointers each.

The Wolverines broke the school record of 17 3-pointers in a game when Ibi Watson connected from the left wing with 3:58 to play. By then, Michigan had gone deep into its bench.
