Charles Matthews had a game-high 16 points and eight rebounds and MI survived a scare in the Big Ten Tournament, topping Iowa 77-71 in overtime on Thursday at New York's Madison Square Garden.
Of all the players on the team, playing in New York City meant the most to senior guard and Brooklyn-native Mike Williams. Wisconsin's lack of depth makes it highly unlikely that the Badgers could run the table and win four games in four days to earn an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament. "The foul shots didn't go in, The 3s didn't go in". I couldn't remember exactly what I picked, but I had thought IU would be somewhere around.500 in conference play. Rutgers upset Ohio State as the 14th seed in last year's Big Ten Tournament. That's when MI went on a quick 8-0 run out of halftime, setting the tone for the rest of the game. His OT 3 put MI up 72-70.
Abdur-Rahkman, meanwhile, was limited to just 22 minutes before fouling out for the first time this season.
Robinson also proved to be the savior of the day at the free-throw line, making two on two attempts in the final minute of overtime to seal the win for the Maize and Blue.
It was over when: In OT, Iowa's Luka Garza hit one of two free throws to give the Hawkeyes a 70-69 lead with 2:33 left. "Step up and make plays at the end". Minnesota shot just 35 percent from the field and 16 percent from 3-point range in the 65-54 defeat against Rutgers.
Wagner fouled out on a moving screen with 4:37 left. Abdur-Rahkman then missed a layup, forcing overtime.
Kipper Nichols scored a career-best 31 points for 13th seed IL (14-18), which closed out Underwood's first season with two wins in its final nine games.
Milwaukee would get one final chance. The Wolverines didn't score their first three-pointer until 9:32 left in regulation.
Without a timeout, Purdue hurried the ball downcourt before Oden had a good look at a 3-pointer that went off the front of the rim.
"We did the stuff that we needed to, but we didn't have the sense of urgency early, so they got an eight-point lead, nine-point lead, 10-point lead and we had to keep on fighting back", Keys said.
No. 9 Wisconsin vs No.8 Maryland.
IL (14-18) - Nichols 10-18 6-6 31, Black 2-7 0-1 4, Lucas 5-9 1-3 12, Alstork 0-1 0-0 0, Frazier 5-12 0-0 13, Vesel 0-0 0-0 0, Eboigbodin 1-2 0-0 2, Finke 5-7 2-2 13, Smith 2-7 0-0 6, Jordan 2-3 0-0 6, Williams 0-0 0-0 0. The Nebraska Cornhuskers are allowing 31.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.4 rebounds per game. Kevin Huerter led the way with 20, while Anthony Cowan had 16 and Bruno Fernando scored 12. Courtney Fredrickson added 12 points and Marsha Howard had 11 points and four steals.
Michigan, however, was able to overcome their poor three-point shooting and quickly went on an 11-0 run in the opening three minutes of the second half to take a 46-40 lead.
"I loved the environment, " said Rutgers coach Steve Pikiell, in a game that was played before a partisan Rutgers crowd.
But they'll have to find a way to slow MI guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur Rahkman, who torched the Hawkeyes twice for team-high 18 and 15 points in two Wolverines victories, 75-68 at Iowa on January 2 and 74-59 at home on February 14.
The Wolverines enter this year's tournament as winners of seven of their last eight games. Meanwhile, Northwestern was 0-of-15 from the field.
