Wolverines comeback,
grab fourth Big Ten win

Daily Sports Editor
STATE COLLEGE - After the Michi-
gan men's basketball team topped Penn
State 65-62 at the Bryce Jordan Center on
Sunday, sophomore guard Darius Morris
embraced Michigan coach John Beilein
in the tunnel.
"(Coach) just said to give him a hug,"
Morris said. "He
was just happy, MICHIGAN 65
he's pleased with PENN STATE 62
how I played, how
we played. To get a win on the road is
really tough to come by in this league."
Morris scored a team-high 23 points
to help the Wolverines (4-7 Big Ten,
14-10 overall) finish the season sweep of
the Nittany Lions. In the first half, Mor-
ris seemed to be the only one able to do

anything offensively. But toward the end,
Morris was accidentally elbowed while
defending and fell hard to the ground.
"I don't know (what) happened," Mor-
ris said. "I got hit, and it really, really
hurt. The (referee) really said I got hit. So
I just wanted to check my head to make
sure I didn'thave any concussion."
Morris was slow to get up from the
hardcourt, so the referee called an
injury timeout as Morris stayed on the
ground holding his head. As soon as the
whistle blew, Morris popped up as if
nothing had happened and was heckled
as if he had faked the injury. The heck-
ling continued into the second half and
served as motivation for Morris and the
"I didn't want to show any weakness
to them or to my teammates," Morris
