 Spike Albrecht rattled in a 3-pointer with 31 seconds remaining to put Michigan ahead, and the 17th-ranked Wolverines held on to beat Syracuse 68-65 on Tuesday night.
   Albrecht's shot broke a 63-63 tie after Syracuse (5-2) had rallied from a 10-point second-half deficit. Michigan led 66-65 after Michael Gbinije scored inside for the Orange, and Derrick Walton missed the front and of a one-and-one for the Wolverines. But Syracuse freshman Chris McCullough threw the ball out of bounds with 15 seconds remaining.
   Caris LeVert missed the front end of another one-and-one, but the Orange turned the ball over again. This time it was Kaleb Joseph -- another freshman -- who lost the ball in the frontcourt. LeVert made two free throws to put Michigan (6-1) back up by three, and Joseph came up short on a 3-pointer at the buzzer.
