ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Jordan Morgan had 11 points and 11 rebounds, playing All-American Jared Sullinger to a virtual stalemate as No. 17 Michigan beat No. 6 Ohio State 56-51 on Saturday.

The result left the teams tied for second in the Big Ten, a half-game behind Michigan State, which plays at Purdue today.

The Wolverines (20-7, 10-4) moved to 15-0 at home by ending a six-game skid to their archrival.
