ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Hunter Dickinson showed early on that he could guard Luka Garza without help.

Then, when Dickinson left the game for a bit with three fouls, his teammates took control.

Dickinson gave Garza fits around the basket, and Franz Wagner scored 21 points to lead No. 3 Michigan to a 79-57 victory over No. 9 Iowa on Thursday night. Garza's three-point play early in the second half put the Hawkeyes up 37-36 - and drew Dickinson's third foul. Michigan answered that with a 14-2 run that took place mostly while Dickinson was on the bench.
