ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Tony Freeman scored a career-high 28 and Cyrus Tate had career highs with 21 points and 11 rebounds, leading Iowa to a 68-60 win over Michigan on Saturday night.

The Hawkeyes (9-10, 2-4 Big Ten) took control of the game with a 12-1 run early in the second half after leading by two at halftime and the cushion helped hold off a late Michigan rally.

DeShawn Sims had 18 points, Jevohn Shepherd scored a career-high 11 -- all in the first half -- and Manny Harris added 11 for the Wolverines (5-13, 1-5).

Michigan trailed by 13 points late in the game, but pulled within four with 1:22 left after Harris made a four-point play following consecutive 3-pointers from Sims and Kelvin Grady.

Iowa responded offensively and Harris turned the ball over in his backcourt with 1:16 to go, hurting Michigan's comeback chance.

But Grady and Sims kept the Wolverines' hopes alive by making a 3-pointers on consecutive trips down the court, pulling them within three with 39 seconds left.

The Hawkeyes held Michigan off by making just enough free throws and doing a better job of contesting 3-point shots.
