Betting odds: Michigan minus-3
After the teams ended regulation tied at 66-66 Friday, Michigan held Purdue without a field goal until the final 2.1 seconds of overtime to win 74-70. It’s still a remarkable story for the Wolverines, who survived a plane accident and have since won impressively twice in two days. Michigan forward D.J. Wilson finished with a team-high 26 points against Purdue. Boilermakers forward Caleb Swanigan, a likely All-American, scored 13 points and collected 13 rebounds, but shot just 5 of 13.
Minnesota has become the Big Ten’s best turnaround story, going from eight wins in 2015-16 to 24 now in 2016-17. The Gophers stifled Michigan State’s offense Friday, holding the Spartans to 32.8 percent shooting. Conversely, Minnesota shot 41.2 percent and had four players in double figures. Gophers forward Jordan Murphy scored 10 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the victory.
The Gophers won the only regular-season matchup with the Wolverines, 83-78, in an overtime thriller in Minneapolis on Feb. 19.
No. 2 Wisconsin vs. No. 6 Northwestern | 3:30 p.m. ET | CBS
Betting odds: Wisconsin minus-8
After a late-season dip with five losses in a six-game span, Wisconsin has responded with a victory against Minnesota in the regular-season finale followed by the 70-60 win against Indiana on Friday. Forward Ethan Happ had 14 points and 12 rebounds, and guard Bronson Koenig added 16 points and 5 assists against the Hoosiers. It was Wisconsin’s 18th win in its last 20 games against the Hoosiers.
Northwestern rallied from a 10-point, second-half deficit to blow past Maryland 72-64 on Friday. Vic Law and Scottie Lindsay each scored 17 points for Northwestern, while Bryant McIntosh added 16 points and 6 assists. Maryland’s Melo Trimble led all scorers with 20 points. The Wildcats are well on their way to their first NCAA Tournament berth.
Wisconsin and Northwestern played once this season, the Wildcats prevailing 66-59 in Madison on Feb. 12.
