ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Caris LeVert scored 19 of his 24 points in the first half, and No. 19 Michigan bounced back from its first loss of the season with a 91-62 victory over Nicholls State on Saturday.
The Wolverines (5-1) were without starting point guard Derrick Walton, who was on the sideline with what appeared to be a boot on his left foot. Spike Albrecht was certainly a capable replacement for Walton, finishing with 10 points, seven assists, three steals and no turnovers.
Ricky Doyle added 15 points for Michigan, and Zak Irvin scored 14.
Nicholls State (0-4) was led by Ja'Dante' Frye, who scored 15 points. T.J. Carpenter added 12.
