ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Glenn Robinson III had 14 points, including a pair of crucial dunks in the second half, and No. 2 Michigan equaled its best start to a season with a 62-47 victory over Nebraska on Wednesday night.

The Wolverines (16-0, 3-0 Big Ten) overcame their shakiest shooting performance in a while, holding the lead for the entire second half. The only other Michigan team to start 16-0 was the 1985-86 edition that went on to win the Big Ten title.

Ray Gallegos scored 19 points for Nebraska (9-7, 0-3), which held the Wolverines to a 39 percent mark from the field. Michigan, which beat its first two conference opponents by 28 points apiece, went 3 of 17 from 3-point range.
