ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- DeShawn Sims scored 23 points Tuesday night to help Michigan top Minnesota 83-55 in its home finale.
Manny Harris added 22 points for the Wolverines (14-15, 7-10 Big Ten), who ended a three-game losing streak after taking control with a 14-2 run midway through the first half.
Sims and Harris did all the scoring during the decisive first-half spurt that gave the Wolverines the lead for good. Michigan, which struggled from behind the arc during its losing streak, made seven of its 15 3-point attempts in the opening half and led 43-29 at intermission.
Minnesota, on the bubble for an NCAA tournament at-large berth, never got closer than 12 points in the second half.
Michigan finished the game 32-for-53 (60.4 percent) from the floor, its best performance of the season.
