    Michigan overcomes ‘mindless’ play to hold off Tarleton State, 65-54

    Ann Arbor — Coming off a lopsided loss to Arizona that had some players frustrated and disconnected, Michigan coach Juwan Howard wanted to see better effort and energy from his team from start to finish.

    It didn’t exactly happen during stretches of the first and second halves of Wednesday’s game against Tarleton State, as the turnovers piled up at an alarming rate and a 16-point lead dwindled down to three with four minutes remaining.

    Still, the No. 20 Wolverines managed to overcome their sloppy play and stave off Tarleton State’s late push, closing the game with a 10-2 run to come away with a 65-54 win at Crisler Center.

    “I think it’s better to have (struggles) right now than at the end of the year when it’s really going to count,” said freshman forward Moussa Diabate, who threw down two dunks during the game-sealing spurt and finished with 14 points off the bench.
