Tommy Amaker, who coached Michigan from 2001 to 2007, almost got a win in his return to Crisler Arena. His Harvard Crimson broke out to a 32-25 halftime lead over Michigan, and extended that margin to 12 points in the second half.
But thanks largely to Stu Douglass’s production off the bench, the Wolverines kept their former coach from nabbing a win.
Douglass scored 19 points, including 5-of-7 shooting from three-point range to help Michigan rally for a 65-62 win on Saturday. The junior guard scored 16 of his points in the second half, and shot 7-for-10 from the field overall.
Darius Morris added 13 points for the Wolverines, while Zach Novak scored 12 and grabbed 11 rebounds.
Michigan improves to 5-2 on the season. The Wolverines host Concordia Monday night at Crisler.
