Michigan holds off furious Vols' rally

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS —

Stokes, as expected, had a different view.

“No, I don’t think I fouled him,” he said. “But (Morgan) was smart to try and draw the charge.”

In the final six seconds, Tennessee twice got its hands on an inbounds pass but could never contain it. Finally the Vols had to foul Stauskas with two seconds left. He hit the first, but missed the second. Stokes rebounded, but the deperation shot at the buzzer wasn’t close.

“I am pleased we could score against them,” said Michigan coach John Beilein. “That’s a very good defensive team we played.”

Three Indiana players combined to score 24 points for the winners. Glenn Robinson III had 13 of those. Zak Irvin had nine on 3-of-3 shooting from long range, and Spike Albrecht had a field goal.

McRae scored 24 for the Vols to lead all scorers.

“I thought there was great effort for both teams,” said Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin, a Purdue graduate. “It was what you’d expect. It went down to the wire.”

Michigan hit 11-of-20 from 3-point range in the game including 7-of-9 in the first half when the Wolverines took control of the game.

“We hit 3-pointers well all year, it’s what we do,” said Beilein. “Usually, if we hit 10 or more we’re in good shape.

That was true to form on Friday.

  • SPT - HB0726 - Mathis - Colts Camp day two 101 Mathis getting lighter workload as Colts get creative

    Robert Mathis is caught in an interesting predicament. The veteran outside linebacker finds himself preparing as hard as he can to play a football season that he will watch for the first month on television. That's the result of a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, and it means fans will see less of the league's reigning sack champion on the practice field.

  • SPT - HB0725 - Colts Camp - 007 CB Darius Butler holds tight to No. 20 The number 20 has grown to mean something to Darius Butler. The former second-round pick was running out of chances when the Indianapolis Colts signed him during the 2012 season. Eleven starts and eight interceptions later, he’s ingrained as the team’s slot cornerback — working under the final season of a two-year, $4 million deal.
