    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Dion Harris scored 21 points and Courtney Sims added 19 Wednesday to help Michigan to an 81-53 comeback victory over Coppin State.

    Daniel Horton also had 11 points for the Wolverines (9-1), who are off to their best start since opening the 1989-90 season 10-1.

    Tywain McKee and Darryl Proctor scored 20 and 13 points, respectively, for the Eagles (0-10), who are playing their first 14 games on the road. Coppin State is off to its worst start in school history.

    Michigan jumped out to a 44-31 lead at the start of the second half by hitting its first four shots and not allowing Coppin State to make any of its first six field goal attempts.

    The Eagles twice pulled within 10 points, the last time 48-38 with 13:38 remaining. The Wolverines answered with a 19-9 run to go ahead 67-47 with 6:49 to play. Coppin State was not able to get within 20 points the rest of the game.

    Michigan struggled in the first half against Coppin State's smaller but faster lineup. Trailing 27-23, the Wolverines ran off 10 straight points and held the Eagles without a basket over a 4:20 stretch to take their largest lead of the half, 33-27.

    Two technical fouls were called on Coppin State in the first half, including one against McKee with 4:28 left that sparked Michigan's run.
