The Wolverines (15-4, 3-1 Big Ten) led by as many as 25 points, thanks mainly to their success from the perimeter. Michigan connected on a season-high 12 3-point field goals, including back-to-back treys from Abram and Reed Baker that gave the Wolverines a 58-40 lead. Michigan finished 12-for-21 from beyond the arc.
Michigan, which led 38-25 at halftime, built a double-digit lead with 5:03 remaining in the first half on Baker's 3-point field goal. Penn State trailed by only one earlier in the half before the Wolverines used an 8-0 run to pull away.
