Purdue falls in overtime to Michigan

WEST LAFAYETTE – Purdue suffered a gut punch as it fell 77-76 to No. 16 Michigan on Wednesday at Mackey Arena.

Wolverines guard Glenn Robinson III secured the comeback win when his shot from about 10 feet out rolled around the rim before falling in at the buzzer.

Purdue (15-13, 5-10 Big Ten) never trailed in regulation and led by 19 in the first half.

Michigan (20-7, 12-3), which was down 37-24 at halftime, stormed back to tie the game at 65 to force overtime. The Wolverines' first lead didn't come until Nik Stauskas' dunk 30 seconds into overtime.

Terone Johnson scored 22 for Purdue, and Ronnie Johnson had 21. A.J. Hammons, who fouled out with 1:55 left in regulation, had 11 points, and Kendall Stephens and Rapheal Davis each scored 10.

Robinson had 17 points for Michigan, and Stauskas added 15. Caris LeVert scored 14, and Jordan Morgan had 13.
