ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Caris LeVert had 19 points and eight assists and Zak Irvin scored 16 points as Michigan finished its non-conference schedule with a 96-60 rout of overmatched Bryant.

The Wolverines (10-3) had five players in double figures as they prepare to open Big Ten play on Dec. 30 at Illinois. They also set a school record with 17 3-pointers.

Bryant (2-10) lost its ninth straight game, and has one more non-conference game against Dartmouth on New Year’s Eve before beginning Northeast Conference play on Jan. 2.

Hunter Ware led Bryant with 26 points and Marcel Pettway added 15, but only two other players scored more than two points.

The beating was nowhere near as lopsided as the 59-point victory the Wolverines picked up on Saturday against Youngstown State, but it wasn’t competitive for long. Michigan led 12-10 after four minutes, but slowly pulled away, and held a 57-35 edge at the intermission.
