ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Moe Wagner’s putback gave Michigan the lead with 18.8 seconds remaining, and then the sophomore blocked a shot at the other end, helping the Wolverines edge Texas 53-50 on Tuesday night.

Wagner led the Wolverines (7-2) with 15 points, and the 6-foot-11 forward from Germany made the biggest plays down the stretch, coming up with the rebound after Zak Irvin missed a driving layup and scoring to put Michigan up 51-50. The Wolverines hounded Texas (4-4) on the next possession, and Wagner blocked Eric Davis Jr.’s shot from the left of the hoop.

Muhammad-Ali Abdur Rahkman ripped the loose ball away for Michigan, then made two free throws with 2.5 seconds to play. The Longhorns could only manage a desperation shot from around midcourt.

Tevin Mack led Texas with 18 points, 13 in the first half.
