After a road loss to Ohio State Monday night, Michigan rebounded Saturday in a big way.

Overcoming a 15-point deficit in the second half that included a putrid 8-for-22 day at the line, the Wolverines managed a big 78-69 overtime win over UCLA moving their record to 6-0 at home.

Moritz Wagner scored 23 points, Charles Matthews added 20 while Zavier Simpson provided 15 off the bench as Michigan snapped the Bruins’ four-game winning streak heading into this afternoon’s contest from Ann Arbor.

Simpson also caused a costly turnover for the Bruins in the waning seconds of the second half stealing a UCLA pass and hitting a layup with 18 seconds left. The Bruins answered with a G.G. Goloman free throw before Eli Brooks was fouled on a late drive, nailing both free throws sending the game to overtime.

From there, Michigan was spot on from beyond the arc sinking three consecutive three pointers which essentially sealed the deal for the Wolverines.

Next up for Michigan is a tough road matchup against Texas on Tuesday.
