Playing without leading scorer Nik Stauskas, No. 22 Michigan found plenty of offensive firepower to rout Coppin State 87-45 Friday.

Freshman Zak Irvin matched his career-high of 10 points by halftime, when Michigan led 42-23, and brought the Crisler Center crowd to its feet by connecting on three consecutive 3-point baskets for a 63-31 lead with 13:24 left to play.

The freshman finished with 24 points on 9-of-13 shooting, including 6-of-10 from 3-point range.
