Irvin helps Michigan cruise past Coppin State

Ann Arbor, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Zak Irvin stepped up for the short-handed Wolverines to the tune of 24 points on 9-of-13 shooting as No. 22 Michigan rolled past Coppin State, 87-45, in a non-conference bout on Friday.

Caris LeVert and Glenn Robinson III added 15 and 14 points, respectively, as Michigan (5-2) returned to the friendly confines of Chrisler Center after playing the last four games away from home.

Nik Stauskas, who entered the contest with five straight 20-plus point efforts, was held out of the Michigan lineup after spraining his ankle in the second half of the Wolverines' last-second loss to Charlotte in the finals of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off on Sunday.

Dallas Gary paced Coppin State (2-3) with 11 points off the bench. Taariq Cephas tallied 10 points and five assists.

Jordan Morgan got off to a hot start for Michigan, scoring all six of his points and surpassing his season-high of four before the first media timeout. His jumper had the Wolverines in front, 10-5.

CSU kept it close in the early portion of the contest but Michigan scored on seven straight possessions midway through the period. Robinson's backdoor alley-oop out of a timeout gave the Maize and Blue a 31-16 edge.

LeVert put a cap on a big first half with a stepback jumper as the buzzer sounded. Michigan shot 56.7 percent from the floor and led 42-23 at the break.

Already holding a commanding 23-point lead 5:53 into the second half, Irvin caught fire and hit three consecutive treys to the delight of the home crowd as part of his 14 second-half points.
