No. 17 Michigan beats Maryland 85-61 for 5th straight win

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) It was a first half so pristine, so darn near perfect, that Michigan didn't know what was more impressive - its uncanny shooting ability or unrelenting defense.

Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman scored 22 of his career-high 28 points before halftime, and the 17th-ranked Wolverines easily defeated Maryland 85-61 Saturday for their fifth straight victory.

Using runs of 9-0 and 16-3, the Wolverines built a 54-24 halftime lead and cruised to the finish. Michigan went 17 for 28 from the floor, including 11 for 19 from 3-point range, in its best half this season.
