In a matchup of teams aiming for No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament, the Wolverines had pulled away and led by nine with 23 seconds left. But a pair of 3-pointers from Duane Washington Jr. around a layup by CJ Walker layup got the Buckeyes within three points with 3 seconds to go.

Brooks sealed the win with a couple of foul shots.

Chaundee Brown Jr. came off the bench to score 15 and Isaiah Livers added 12 for the Wolverines (16-1, 11-1 Big Ten). Michigan won its fifth straight around a three-week break due to Covid-19 issues.

Washington had a career-high 30 points and went 5 for 10 on 3s for Ohio State (18-5, 12-5). E.J. Liddell had 23 to go along with 10 rebounds.

 


The Wolverines came out launching 3-point shots, hitting 10 of 13 in the first half but held on to just a slim 45-43 lead at the break. Brown was 3 for 3 from long range, and Brooks and Mike Smith each hit two. They cooled off in second half, hitting just 1 for 10.
