ANN ARBOR, MI (AP) -
Aubrey Dawkins scored a career-high 31 points and Max Bielfeldt added 14 points and 11 rebounds on his senior day to lift Michigan to a 79-69 victory over Rutgers on Saturday.
The Wolverines (15-15, 8-10 Big Ten) finished a disappointing regular season on a positive note, winning for only the second time in their last nine games. Michigan led 47-28 at halftime, and Dawkins made eight shots from 3-point range, falling one short of Garde Thompson's school record from 1987.
Rutgers (10-21, 2-16) finished last in its first season in the Big Ten. The Scarlet Knights have not won since upsetting Wisconsin on Jan. 11.
Bielfeldt was honored before the game as part of Michigan's senior day festivities, and the 6-foot-8 forward scored 10 points before halftime. It was only the fourth game this season that Bielfeldt scored in double digits, and his 11 rebounds set a career high.
