ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Duncan Robinson scored 10 of his 18 points in the first half to help Michigan build a double-digit lead Wednesday night, and the Wolverines went on to beat Rutgers 68-57. Michigan (16-5, 6-2 Big Ten) has won three straight. The Scarlet Knights (6-15, 0-8) are winless in the conference. Rutgers had only single-digit scorers until midway through the second half when Corey Sanders dunked to pull his team within five points. Mike Williams scored 17 and Sanders finished with 15 points. Michigan's Derrick Walton scored 14, Aubrey Dawkins had 11 points, Mark Donnal added 10 while Zak Irvin had eight points, 12 rebounds and eight assists. The Wolverines were sluggish early, getting held scoreless for three-plus minutes and falling behind 6-0. The Scarlet Knights were ahead until there was 5:27 left in the first half when Dawkins tied the game with a 3-pointer.
