ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trey Burke scored a season-high 29 points and freshman Glen Robinson III matched a career high with 21 to help No. 4 Michigan bounce back from an embarrassing defeat with a victory over Penn State, 79-71 on Sunday.


The Wolverines (22-4, 9-4 Big Ten) had dropped three of their previous four games, including a 23-point loss Tuesday night at No. 8 Michigan State, and needed a half to shake off their slump. Michigan trailed for much of the first 20 minutes against a last-place team without a conference win.


The Nittany Lions (8-17, 0-13) led by as many as eight in the first half. They went ahead 7-plus minutes into the game and had the lead until Burke made a game-tying, off-balance fadeaway with 55 seconds left in the first half.


Michigan scored the first six points after halftime to take control. Freshman Nik Stauskas scored 18, giving the Wolverines the third scoring option they needed to avoid an upset.


Penn State's Jermaine Marshall and Sasa Borovnjak each scored 17 points.


No. 3 Miami 45, Clemson 43

CLEMSON, S.C. — Kenny Kadji scored 12 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 36 seconds left to keep No. 3 Miami perfect in Atlantic Coast Conference.


The Hurricanes (21-3, 12-0) finished with their fewest points of the season, and their high-scoring guard duo of Durand Scott and Shane Larkin were a combined 3-of-16 shooting for 10 points. Still, Miami pulled out its 13th straight victory on Kadji's wide-open 3.



No. 9 Arizona 68, Utah 64

SALT LAKE CITY — Mark Lyons scored 18 points, freshman Brandon Ashley added 10 in a reserve role and Arizona defeated Utah to snap a two-game skid.


Arizona led by as many as 13 early in the second half only to see the Utes respond with a 14-3 run to tie it at 51 with 7:28 remaining on Jason Washburn's tip-in.


No. 12 Louisville 59, South Florida 41

TAMPA, Fla. — Russ Smith scored 15 points and Louisville stayed within a game of first place in the Big East with a lopsided victory over South Florida.


Smith, Wayne Blackshear and Kevin Ware did all the scoring for the Cardinals during a 22-3 run in the first half.


No. 20 Wisconsin 71, No. 13 Ohio State 49

MADISON, Wis. — Ben Brust and Jared Berggren each scored 15 points as Wisconsin routed Ohio State.


Sam Dekker came off the bench to score 13 for the Badgers (18-8, 9-4 Big Ten), and Traevon Jackson added 10.


DeShaun Thomas led the Buckeyes (18-7, 8-5) with 18 points.


The win kept Wisconsin tied with Michigan for third in the conference, two games behind leaders Indiana and Michigan State. Ohio State dropped into fifth place.
