ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan men's basketball team opened the doors to Crisler Arena for its annual Maize and Blue Scrimmage Saturday (Oct. 25). In front of 5,189 Wolverine fans, the two squads battled for 20 minutes, with the Maize team coming out on top, 36-35.

The two teams went back and forth in the early stages of the game, with neither squad able to gain a significant advantage. With the Maize team retaining a slight lead, the Blue squad took control and was able to regain a 30-29 lead with 3:38 remaining. The Maize squad had a 36-35 edge in the final seconds and sophomore Graham Brown's (Mio, Mich./Mio-AuSable HS) last-second shot from the free throw line was no good, allowing the Maize to prevail with the one-point win.

Senior Bernard Robinson Jr. (Washington, D.C./New Hampton Prep, N.H.) led all scorers with 14 points on 6-for-9 shooting from the field. Brown and freshman Courtney Sims (Roslindale, Mass./Noble & Greenough School) chipped in with six points apiece for the Blue team. Brown also had a game-high six rebounds.

The Maize team was led by sophomore Lester Abram (Pontiac, Mich./Northern HS), who had 10 points. Freshman Dion Harris (Detroit, Mich./Redford HS) and sophomore Daniel Horton (Cedar Hill, Texas/Cedar Hill HS) had eight and seven points, respectively. Sophomore Chris Hunter (Gary, Ind./West Side HS) finished with six points and led the Maize squad with four boards.

The Wolverines' preseason continues with a pair of exhibition games. The Maize and Blue will face Michigan Tech Saturday, Nov. 8, at 2 p.m. before facing the Fayetteville Patriots Friday, Nov. 14, as part of the National Basketball Developmental League's "Going Back to School" schedule. Tipoff against Fayetteville is schedule for a 7 p.m. U-M opens the regular season against Oakland on Friday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m.
