ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Glen Robinson III sent No. 16 Michigan to an overwhelming first half Wednesday and the Wolverines coasted to a 79-50 win over Nebraska.

Michigan bounced back from a loss at Indiana last Sunday to take the lead by itself in the Big Ten Conference race.

Robinson scored 23 points and Michigan built a 49-21 lead at intermission. The Wolverines outscored the Cornhuskers by 24 points during the final 12 minutes of the opening period.

Michigan is 17-5 for the season and the Wolverines climbed to 9-1 in the Big Ten, a half game in front of Michigan State. Iowa, at 6-3, is the only other team in the league with a winning conference record.

Caris LeVert and Zak Irvin both had 16 points for the Wolverines, who shot 50 percent from the field and made all 14 of their free throw attempts.

Shavon Shields scored 13 points for Nebraska (11-10, 3-6 Big Ten).
