WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Glenn Robinson III got a late bank shot to roll in as time expired Wednesday night, giving No. 16 Michigan a 77-76 overtime victory at Purdue.
The shot capped a remarkable rally. Michigan (20-7, 12-3 Big Ten) trailed by as many as 19 points in the first half, 13 at halftime and never led until the opening basket of overtime.
Robinson finished with 17 points while Nik Stauskas had 15.
Terone Johnson had a season-high 22 points for Purdue (15-13, 5-10) while his brother Ronnie added 21. The Boilermakers have lost three straight.
Michigan could have won it in regulation, but Stauskas came up short on a 3-pointer with 3 seconds to go.
In overtime, the Wolverines took the lead with three dunks and then won it after Robinson caught a lob pass in the right corner and spun away toward the basket.
