ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Tim Hardaway Jr. brought Michigan back with a relentless streak of three-point shooting, then blocked a shot by Aaron Craft in the final seconds of overtime to give the third-ranked Wolverines a 76-74 victory over No. 10 Ohio State (17-5, 7-3) on Tuesday night.
Hardaway finished with 23 points, including five straight three-pointers in the second half. The Wolverines (21-2, 8-2 Big Ten) led by two points when Craft rushed the ball into the frontcourt after a missed Michigan free throw.
