Franz Wagner and No. 4 Michigan rebounded from their first loss of the season with quite an offensive turnaround.
From 43 points to 103.
Wagner led a balanced scoring effort with 18 points, and the host Wolverines opened Big Ten play with a 103-91 victory over Iowa on Friday night, overcoming 44 points by Luka Garza.
Michigan bounced back from its 58-43 loss to top-ranked Louisville on Tuesday night. In fact, the Wolverines exceeded their point total from Tuesday before halftime against the Hawkeyes.
"We're a good offensive team. I think we have a lot of weapons," Wagner said. "I think just the overall pace of the game, too. Iowa is a really fast team."
Garza scored 27 points in the first half, including 15 of Iowa's first 17. The Hawkeyes play host to the Gophers on Monday.
"I'd most certainly rather have the 'W.' They tried to game plan to kind of just stay out on the shooters and kind of let me go one-on-one," Garza said. "If you go one-on-one with me, I'm just going to just try to get to the basket and score as much as I can."
It was the defensive end that prevented the Hawkeyes (6-3) from winning this one. Jon Teske and Zavier Simpson added 16 points each for Michigan (8-1), which had six players with at least 12.
Garza set a record for the most points by an opposing player at Michigan's Crisler Center, breaking the mark of 39 by Ohio State's Dennis Hopson in 1987.
No. 10 Duke 77, Virginia Tech 63: Tre Jones scored 10 of his 15 points in the second half as the Blue Devils (9-1, 1-0 ACC) rallied to beat the host Hokies (6-3, 1-1).
"They follow his lead," Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said of Jones, his sophomore point guard from Apple Valley.
Said Jones, who also had a big night on Tuesday when Duke won at Michigan State: "Another big road game. A big crowd. In past years we've struggled here."
The Blue Devils had lost three in a row at Virginia Tech.
No. 1 Louisville 64, Pittsburgh 46: Jordan Nwora scored 19 points, Malik Williams had 13 points and 11 rebounds off the bench and the host Cardinals (9-0, 2-0 ACC) pulled away from the Panthers (7-3, 1-1).
Southern California 80, Texas Christian 78: Nick Rakocevic had a tip-in in the final second and the Trojans (8-2) won after the host Horned Frogs (6-2) came back from an 18-point deficit to tie the game.
