— Jordan Morgan scored a season-high 12 points and matched a season high with 10 rebounds to help No. 3 Michigan beat Arkansas 80-67 Saturday.

The Wolverines (9-0) are off to their best start since they won the first 11 games of the 1988-89 season, when they went on to win the program's only national title.

Michigan led by 13 in the first half, but the game got close after halftime.

The Razorbacks opened the second half with an 11-2 run to pull within two points and trailed 56-55 with 8:58 left. The Wolverines went on a 10-2 run and coasted to the win, John Beilein's 100th in six seasons at the school.

Marshawn Powell had 18 points for the Razorbacks (4-4).

Michigan's entire starting lineup scored in double figures.

Glenn Robinson III scored 17, Trey Burke had 16 points and seven assists, Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 14 and Nik Stauskas added 10.

Arkansas reserve Kikko Haydar had a career-high 13 points while Hunter Mickelson and Rickey Scott each scored 10 points.

The Razorbacks were coming off an 81-78 win over Oklahoma, their only win in a five-game stretch against teams from major conferences.

Michigan might not get tested until the Big Ten season starts, but it does have a trip to New York next Saturday to play West Virginia, the school at which Beilein coached before being hired to replaced fired coach Tommy Amaker.

The Wolverines got off to a slow start, leading by only one point before an 8-0 run gave them a 22-11 lead. They led 42-32 at halftime with a balance of points in the paint and shots from the outside.

Arkansas made a push to keep the game close in the first half of the second half, but couldn't make enough shots or stops to take its only lead of the game.
