    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Courtney Sims scored 22 points and Lester Abram added 19 to lead four Michigan players in double figures Saturday as the Wolverines held off Chicago State 86-69 in the nonconference finale for both teams.

    Daniel Horton scored 17 points and Dion Harris added 12 for the Wolverines (10-1), who equaled their best start since the 1989-90 season. Michigan opens its Big Ten season Tuesday at Indiana.

    Royce Parran scored 21 points and David Holston added 15 for the Cougars (1-11), who have played all of their games on the road.

    The Wolverines opened the second half by outscoring the Cougars 11-0 to take a 57-26 lead. Chicago State came back with a 20-6 run to close the gap to 63-46 with 11:31 remaining.

    Michigan responded with five straight points to push its lead to 22 points. Chicago State again rallied, cutting it to 76-61 with 4:26 to play. However, that was as close as the Cougars could get.

    After Chicago State took its only lead of the game, 5-4, Michigan went on a 15-2 run over the next 4:59, forcing four Cougar turnovers and limiting them to just two free throws. The Wolverines went on to build a 46-26 halftime advantage.
