    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan's Dion Harris tied a career-high with 24 points Wednesday night and the Wolverines snapped a 10-game losing streak and avoided tying the school record for consecutive losses with a 63-48 win over Penn State.

    The 1981-82 team lost 11 in a row en route to a 7-20 campaign.

    Ronald Coleman added 16 points for the Wolverines (13-15, 4-10 Big Ten).

    The last time Michigan tasted victory was a 66-62 win at Penn State on Jan. 15. That gave the Wolverines a 12-5 mark overall and a 3-0 start atop the conference.

    A barrage of injuries and suspensions then began wreaking havoc, resulting in a combined 74 missed games by the players and forcing coach Tommy Amaker -- who still hasn't coached one game this season with the entire roster at his disposal -- to use 14 different lineups.

    But Penn State once again proved to be the bandage Michigan used to stop the bleeding. It was the Wolverines' eighth consecutive win over the Nittany Lions (7-19, 1-12), who now have lost eight in a row and 13 of their last 14 games.

    Harris played a flawless first half in leading Michigan to a 36-26 halftime advantage. The sophomore had 16 points, four assists and no turnovers in 19 minutes.

    Danny Morrissey had a team-high 14 points and Geary Claxton had 12 for Penn State, which was never closer than nine points in the second half.
