Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) - All it took for Michigan to end a two-game skid was to play a team with a longer losing streak. But it sure wasn't easy. Trey Burke scored 29 points and Glenn Robinson III added 21 with 10 rebounds, as the fourth-ranked Wolverines kept Penn State winless in Big Ten play with a 79-71 victory at the Crisler Center. Nik Stauskas chipped in 18 points for Michigan (22-4, 9-4 Big Ten), which had lost three of its last four and was coming off a humbling 75-52 loss at Michigan State on Tuesday. Jermaine Marshall and Sasa Borovnjak each scored 17 points for the Nittany Lions (8-17, 0-13), who led for most of the first half Sunday and never trailed by double digits. Penn State still came up short and has lost 13 straight games since an 84-74 win over Duquesne on Dec. 29.

Final Score: (9) Arizona 68, Utah 64

Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) - Mark Lyons scored a game-high 18 points and No. 9 Arizona escaped Huntsman Center with a 68-64 victory over Utah to avoid a three-game losing streak.
