Stu Douglass scored 14 points after making a surprise start at point guard, and No. 18 Michigan overcame some early shooting struggles to beat Ferris State 59-33 in Friday night's season opener.

On a Michigan defense playing quite a few freshmen, cornerback Blake Countess has stood out. He has started the past two games, essentially moving senior Troy Woolfolk from cornerback to safety.
The first 30 minutes were eerily similar to Michigan’s ugly exhibition game against Wayne State. Michigan’s offense had little movement, shots weren’t falling inside or out and frustrating turnovers seemed to stop any momentum before it started. The light finally went on over the final quarter of play as the Wolverines began to resemble...
