Big Ten Tournament: Michigan keeps rolling with upset of No. 1 Purdue

Big Ten Tournament

Michigan basketball might be unstoppable.

After blowing through Illinois yesterday with almost zero prep time and a plane crash to somehow get over, the Wolverines stormed into today’s game against Purdue and used overtime to eliminate the No. 1 seed Boilermakers from the Big Ten Tournament.

D.J. Wilson scored a game-high 26 points while Zak Irvin added 13.

Michigan and Purdue were pretty even in almost every aspect of the game. The Wolverines however were able to take advantage of their free throw opportunities hitting on 18 of 23 which was ultimately the difference in the game. Especially at the end when Duncan Robinson hit two free throws with just over a second remaining after Purdue’s Ryan Cline hit a three-pointer with three seconds left to make it a two-point game.

Michigan will now play either Minnesota or Michigan State in the semifinals Saturday.
