ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Naz Hillmon scored a career-high 30 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to lead Michigan to a 78-63 win over No. 18 Iowa on Sunday.

Hillmon scored the game's first two baskets, Dilk added another and the Wolverines led throughout. They were up by 19 midway through the third quarter and Iowa only got as close as eight with 1:46 left in the game before the Wolverines finished on a 9-2 run.
