Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Zak Irvin led all scorers with 15 points on 5-of-8 from 3-point range, as the Michigan Wolverines held on to win their Big Ten Conference opener over the Minnesota Golden Gophers at Williams Arena, 63-60.

Nik Stauskas poured in 14 points and dished out seven assists for Michigan (9-4, 1-0 Big Ten), while John Horford also scored 14 and hauled in nine rebounds.

For Minnesota (11-3, 0-1), Andre Hollins and Malik Smith netted 12 points apiece, while Elliot Eliason tallied a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.
