College Park - COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Freshman Hunter Dickinson had 26 points and 11 rebounds, Franz Wagner scored 19 and No. 16 Michigan remained unbeaten with an 84-73 win over Maryland on Thursday night.
The Wolverines (8-0, 3-0 Big Ten) trailed 54-50 with 15 minutes left before Dickinson scored nine points in a 23-5 run that turned a close, contentious contest into a runaway.
Dickinson went 10 for 11 from the floor and 6 for 7 at the line in reaching a season high in points.
Donta Scott scored 19 for Maryland, Eric Ayala had 16 and Jairus Hamilton added 15. The Terrapins (6-3, 1-3) were trying to build on Monday night’s upset at No. 6 Wisconsin, but didn’t have enough muscle in the middle to handle Dickinson.
