Michigan Basketball survives Minnesota in Overtime: 3 takeaways for UM

But in the end, the Wolverines were able to overcome poor free-throw shooting and huge games by Minnesota's Nate Mason and Isaiah Washington in a wild 76-73 overtime win Saturday at Crisler Center.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers (14-10) are riding in a four-game losing streak including a 94-80 loss to Iowa in which Jordan Murphy scored 21 points in 9 of 14 shooting from the field and 3 of 6 from the free throw line.

Mason hit a three-point shot with seconds to play to tie it up and bring it into overtime.

On the season, MI basketball averages 74.4 points, 32.9 rebounds and 15.1 assists per game. Despite free-throw struggles, Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman took over and notched a 3-point play with just seconds to go to win the game.

Washington, whose previous high was 15 points, made two free throws with 1:38 remaining in overtime to give Minnesota a 71-70 advantage. Minnesota missed a game-tying triple and the game was over. Rahkman had 17. Wagner had 16 and 11 rebounds, while Matthews finished with 13 points and 11 boards.

MI soon cut a 10-point deficit in half with a 7-2 spurt that included five points from Abdur-Rahkman.

Washington scored on a transition layup and Mason added another driving layup to make it 43-38 at the 14:06 mark.

After Abdur-Rahkman missed two free throws, Robinson threw down a fast-break dunk and Abdur-Rahkman redeemed himself with a pair of free throws to give MI a one-point advantage.

Mason then missed a 3-point try, allowing the Wolverines to sneak away with the victory. A basket by Abdur-Rahkman and a dunk from Matthews in the final minute extended the lead to five but Abdur-Rahkman missed two potential clinching free throws. With the win, MI is now 19-6 overall and 8-4 in Big Ten play.
