    Michigan 70, Fairfield 48

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Dion Harris scored 20 points as Michigan rolled past Fairfield 70-48 to win its fourth consecutive game Saturday night.

    Freshman Ronald Coleman added a career-high 18 points for the Wolverines (10-5). Teammate Daniel Horton, playing in his second game back after missing nearly a month with a knee injury, scored nine points.

    It was the last non-conference game of the season for Michigan, which opened Big Ten play on Wednesday with a road upset of No. 14 Iowa.

    Fairfield (6-7) was led by Terrence Todd's 15 points, while Deng Gai added 10.

    Michigan beat Fairfield last year at Madison Square Garden in New York, 66-43. This year, the Stags were within two points with under four minutes to play in the first half when the Wolverines hit three consecutive 3-pointers to jump out to a 39-27 lead at the intermission.

    Fairfield was as close as nine points early in the second half, but Michigan went on an 8-0 run -- triggered by a Horton 3-pointer -- to blow the game open.
