(AP Photo/Carlos Osorio) Isaiah Livers added 12 points for the Wolverines (6-0), who led by five early in the second half before exploding for a huge run that turned the matchup into an unexpected rout.

Michigan 's 19-0 second-half run fueled an eventual 73-64 win over North Carolina. The Wolverines advance to the Battle 4 Atlantis final. Then the Wolverines held on amid the Tar Heels’ frantic rally in the final 8 minutes to earn an early marquee win for first-year coach Juwan Howard .

“Share the game,” first-year coach Juwan Howard calls it. Brooks matched his career high with 24 points and Michigan ran off 19 unanswered points in the second half to score a big upset, beating the Tar Heels 73-64 on Thursday to reach the Battle 4 Atlantis championship game.

It’s safe to say that Juwan Howard has impressed so far in his first season as head coach of the Michigan basketball program.

After the Wolverines won the Battle 4 Atlantis with an 82-64 victory over No. 8-ranked Gonzaga on Friday, Howard celebrated by dancing with his players and giving out high-fives. Take a look:

Howard, who was hired by the Wolverines in May, has had nothing short of an immaculate start to the year. He has coached Michigan to a perfect 7-0 record on the season with wins over North Carolina, Creighton and Iowa State in addition to the blowout of Gonzaga.

The former Fab Five member sure knows how to celebrate too, maybe even better than his predecessor did.
