ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – Zak Irvin scored 22 points for sharp-shooting Michigan, and the Wolverines held on for a 70-67 victory over No. 3 Maryland when Rasheed Sulaimon missed a 3-pointer in the final seconds Tuesday night.
Maryland’s nine-game winning streak came to an end despite 22 points and 11 rebounds from Diamond Stone. Michigan (13-4, 3-1 Big Ten) held Maryland’s backcourt duo of Sulaimon and Melo Trimble to 10 points on 4-of-17 shooting.
The Wolverines were without guard Caris LeVert, their leading scorer. The senior missed a third straight game with a lower left leg injury.
Derrick Walton had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Wolverines, and Duncan Robinson added 17 points.
Maryland (15-2, 4-1) had been an NCAA-best 15-1 in games decided by six points or fewer since 2014-15.
