Matthews' double-double leads Michigan past Grizzlies, 74-55

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Michigan coach John Beilein didn't need to worry after all.

Four days after his Wolverines' disappointing loss in the Big Ten Tournament championship game, they did exactly what they were supposed to against 15th-seeded Montana in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

They got off to a fast start, led by double digits quickly and went on to a 74-55 win Thursday night.
