Concordia, also located in Ann Arbor, plays in the same NAIA conference with Michigan's daughter campus in Dearborn, and wasn't expected to provide much of a test for the Wolverines.
However, after Michigan jumped out to a 15-4 lead in the first four minutes, they found themselves unable to put away the Cardinals. The Wolverines only led 42-32 at the half, and Concordia continued to stay close early in the second period.
Michigan, though, finally took advantage of their superior size and strength to get to the free-throw line. That allowed them to stretch the margin, and Stu Douglass' 3-pointer made it 73-57 with 7:13 left.
