No. 14 Michigan runs past Long Beach State, 85-61

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Nik Stauskas scored 24 points, Caris LeVert had 20 and No. 14 Michigan made a tournament-record 14 3-pointers in beating scrappy Long Beach State 85-61 Thursday in the first round of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off.

Michigan led by 18 in the first half before the margin was trimmed to 10 with less than 9 minutes to play. But the Wolverines (3-1) were able to hold on thanks to all the long-range jumpers. Stauskas and LeVert hit four 3s apiece.

The win set up a potential rematch Friday with No. 10 Virginia Commonwealth, a team the Wolverines beat in the NCAA tournament last season. VCU was paired with Florida State in the Tip-Off's final game Thursday night.

A.J. Spencer and Mike Caffey each had 12 points to lead Long Beach State (1-4), which lost its fourth straight game.
