MI men's basketball team rallies past Iowa in OT

MI men's basketball team rallies past Iowa in OT

No. 15 MI will get a chance at avenging its worst loss of the season when it faces Nebraska in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament on Friday at Madison Square Garden.

Nebraska and MI last met on January 18 at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb.

Maybe the most familiar fight song in college sports filled Madison Square Garden as MI turned the last six minutes of its Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal against Nebraska into garbage time. Wolverines center Jon Teske then kept Iowa's upset bid alive, going 0-for-2 at the line, but the Hawkeyes again failed to score on the ensuing possession, and MI forward Duncan Robinson made both free throws and Corey Matthews added another to close out the game. MI jumped out to a 33-15 lead and forced Nebraska i nto a 1-for-20 shooting stretch in the first half.

The Huskers failed to make a dent into the the MI lead, falling 77-58. All three had two fouls.

MI had its worst 3-point shooting game of the season and played most of the overtime period without its top two players as Mo Wagner and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman both fouled out.

"We haven't had that all year long".

Then in overtime, Matthews made three-of-six free throws to help keep U-M alive.

MI shot 41 percent from the field, and went 6-for-13 from 3-point range.

Nebraska's players said they weren't overwhelmed by the moment. "And the place was all jacked up and they were ready to roll". Neither team fared particularly well in Big Ten play, and it's hard to imagine either Maryland or Wisconsin advancing beyond Thursday. The sophomore guard had just come off of a 25-point game against IL the previous night. And that's all it was. "As of late, teams have been trying to switch out their defenses against us", Abdur-Rahkman said. Bohannon had 11, including an ice-in-his-veins type of 3-pt shot that sent the game to overtime tied at 67. "I don't think that undoes what we've accomplished this season". That is all I have to say about this game. "I have a lot of respect for Iowa. So hopefully that will be on display on Friday". Alexis Sevillian, who had all nine of her points in the fourth, answered with a clutch 3-pointer and Northwestern missed its last five shots to finish the game at 27 percent.

Nebraska went small and put 6-foot-8 Isaiah Roby on Wagner. Since then, the Cornhuskers are 10-2 and shooting 46 percent from the field while also outrebounding opponents.

The post MI smothers Nebraska to reach Big Ten Tournament semifinals appeared first on Land of 10. The Huskers' only conference tournament title was in 1994, as members of the Big Eight. It was just part of stretch where NU went just 1-for-19 on field goal attempts in the first half. That's just where it begins and ends. NU currently sits at 22-10 (13-6) on the season, and its fate for the NCAA tournament now lies in the hands of the NCAA Selection Committee. I don't think there was anything tricky. It was only the third time this season a Husker opponent made double-digit threes in a game. It could be MI, it could be someone else.

"I'm proud of our guys, because it was not - if you just look at the stat lines, the only way we could win that game was defense", MI coach John Beilein said.
