McIntosh shot a scorching season-high 73.0 percent from the field and was a perfect 3-of-3 from deep.

Vic Law added seven points and seven rebounds, while Gavin Skelly snagged nine rebounds.

The defense spurred the Wildcats forward in the second half, and held the Wolverines without a field goal from 12:15 to 2:46. The 52-point output on the game was tied for the lowest of the season for Michigan.

The #B1GCats evened their conference record at 6-6 and notched their first ranked win of the season.
