Glenn Robinson III scored 15 points and No. 7 Michigan pulled away in the second half to beat Division I newcomer UMass-Lowell 69-42 Friday night.

Michigan (1-0) raised its Final Four banner from last season before the game, but the River Hawks (0-1) actually led by two early in the second half. The Wolverines took control by scoring the game's next 21 points, and that was the end of the upset bid.

Michigan was without star big man Mitch McGary, who missed the game because of a lingering back problem.

The Wolverines looked out of sorts for a while in their first game after the departures of national player of the year Trey Burke and fellow guard Tim Hardaway Jr. Both left for the NBA after last season.
