Host Wolverines succesfully defend national title

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan's Sam Mikulak won his third all-around title and the host Wolverines successfully defended their NCAA team title on Friday night.

Michigan had the lead after the first rotation and never gave it up as it claimed the school's sixth national crown. It finished with 445.05 points to top Oklahoma by more than four points. It was the fourth consecutive runner-up finish for the Sooners, who ended the competition comfortably ahead of third-place Stanford.

Mikulak led Stanford's Akash Modi by a hundredth of a point after five rotations and finished with a 15.95 in floor exercise -- the best score in the event -- to secure his sixth career individual title.

The 2012 U.S. Olympian will have a chance to become the NCAA's most decorated male gymnast on Saturday night when he returns for the individual finals in four events, including the parallel bars, which he won last season.
