Eli Brooks leads Michigan Wolverines men's basketball team to 77-49 win over Prairie View A&M

WASHINGTON (AP) — Eli Brooks scored 15 points, Caleb Houstan added 13 points, and No. 6 Michigan cruised Saturday night to a 77-49 victory over Prairie View A&M.

Hunter Dickinson scored 11 points and added 10 rebounds for the Wolverines (2-0), who improved to 16-2 in regular season nonconference games under third-year coach Juwan Howard.

“We’re playing Michigan, and that’s a daunting task,” Panthers coach Byron Smith said. “If there’s five teams in the country better than them, show them to me.”

William Douglas had 15 points for the Panthers (0-3) in an event organized by Coaches vs. Racism, a nonprofit dedicated to ending systemic racism in sports. Both teams toured the National Museum of African American History and Culture on Friday.

“That right there was a highlight moment,” Howard said.
