IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Jake Kelly set career highs with 23 points and nine assists and Iowa snapped a two-game losing streak by beating Michigan 70-60 in overtime Sunday.

Iowa (14-13, 4-10 Big Ten) rallied late in regulation to force overtime, and Kelly and Matt Gatens opened the extra session with back-to-back baskets to put Iowa ahead 60-56. Kelly then buried a 3 from the corner to give the Hawkeyes a 63-56 lead with 2:54 left.
