ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- Peter Campbell scored 18 points, all on 3-pointers, and No. 22 Butler defeated Michigan 79-65 on Wednesday night in the first round of the Great Alaska Shootout.
The Bulldogs set a tournament record for 3-pointers, hitting 17-of-32 from beyond the arc.
Michigan (2-2) matched Butler's torrid 3-point shooting early but couldn't keep pace in the second half.
With Butler (4-0) clinging to a 51-48 lead with about 14 minutes remaining in the second half, the Bulldogs started hitting 3-pointers seemingly at will.
A.J. Graves hit a 3-pointer, Campbell hit another and Graves hit a third. That started a 18-2 run -- all on 3-pointers -- and Butler built its biggest lead, 72-50.
DeShawn Sims led Michigan with 14 points. Ron Coleman and Manny Harris
