    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- DeShawn Sims scored 20 points and Manny Harris added 15 points and 13 assists as Michigan beat Oakland 89-76 Saturday afternoon at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

    Laval Lucas-Perry, playing his first game for Michigan after transferring from Arizona, added 14 for the Wolverines (8-2). Keith Benson led Oakland (7-6) with 23 points and 11 rebounds.

    The Golden Grizzlies led 15-14 after five minutes, but the Wolverines answered with a 18-0 run that included three 3-pointers from Lucas-Perry. Michigan built a 42-34 halftime lead.

    Erik Kangas hit three 3-pointers to pull Oakland within 65-59 with 8:27 left. But Michigan went up 79-67 with 4:22 left on back-to-back 3-pointers by Zack Novak and Kelvin Grady, and the Grizzlies never seriously threatened again.
