ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Glenn Robinson III had 14 points, including two 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.

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

Trey Burke scored 18 points for the Wolverines and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 15 points and 11 rebounds.
