Craft blocked; Buckeyes lose in OT

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Tim Hardaway Jr. brought Michigan back with a relentless streak of 3-point shooting, then blocked a shot by Aaron Craft in the final seconds of overtime to give the third-ranked Wolverines a 76-74 victory over No. 10 Ohio State on Tuesday night.

Replays showed contact on Craft's arm as he attempted the game-tying shot, but the referees let the play continue.

Hardaway finished with 23 points, including five straight 3-pointers in the second half. The Wolverines (21-2, 8-2 Big Ten) led by two points when Craft rushed the ball into the frontcourt after a missed Michigan free throw. He got all the way to the basket, but Hardaway was there to smother his last-ditch attempt to tie it.

After scoring at will most of the second half, Ohio State (17-5, 7-3) managed only two points in overtime.
