Wolverines Edge Northwestern In Overtime

Trey Burke scored 19 points — including Michigan's last eight of overtime — to help the 13th-ranked Wolverines hold off Northwestern 66-64 on Wednesday night.

The Wildcats trailed 66-63 when Alex Marcotullio was fouled shooting a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds remaining. He missed the first of his three free throws and after making the second, he had to intentionally miss the third. Northwestern (11-5, 1-3 Big Ten) was unable to tip in the rebound.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 19 points for Michigan (14-3, 4-1), but it was his foul that put Marcotullio on the line.

John Shurna had 21 points for Northwestern and Drew Crawford added 20.
