No. 20 Michigan pulls away to beat Bradley 77-66

Posted: Updated:

Evan Smotrycz had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and Tim Hardaway Jr. added a soaring dunk during a decisive run in the second half to lead No. 20 Michigan to a 77-66 win over Bradley on Thursday night.

The Wolverines (10-2) overcame uncharacteristically poor shooting in the first half.

The game was tied at 45 in the second when Smotrycz made a 3-pointer to put Michigan ahead to stay.

Bradley (5-7) still trailed by one at 50-49 when the Wolverines went on a 21-7 run.

Hardaway dunked off an alley-oop pass from Stu Douglass in transition.

Hardaway added a layup immediately after that to make it 65-54.

The game was a family reunion of sorts. Michigan coach John Beilein's son Patrick is Bradley's director of basketball operations.
