ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Coming off his worst shooting performence of his Michigan career, Caris LeVert needed a bounce back game to rejuvenate himself and U-M’s season.

And when your next opponent is winless Delaware State, bouncing back tends to be a little easier.

That certainly was the case today at Crisler Center, as Michigan rolled Delaware State 80-33, led by LeVert’s 15 points, five assists and four rebounds.

LeVert, who finished with a season-low five-points on 1-of-13 shooting in U-M’s 82-57 loss at SMU, looked like his usual self, shooting 5-of-9 from the field, while making 3-of-5 from 3s.

Zak Irvin (12-points, seven rebounds), Duncan Robinson (11), Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman (11), Ricky Doyle (10) and Kameron Chatman (10) all reached double figure scoring for the Wolverines as well.

Michigan (7-3) shot 51.7 percent from the field, making 10-of-26 from three-point range, at 38.5 percent rate.

Delaware State’s (0-9) made only 11 field goals at a 22.4 percent rate, managing only 15 points in the second half. No Hornets player reached double digit scoring, with two players scoring six.

Michigan led 38-18 at the half.

Michigan next will play host to Northern Kentucky on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
