That certainly was the case today, as MI held Iowa to 42% shooting on the day and 30% from three. Junior Nicholas Baer hit a 3-pointer - his first of the game - with 59 seconds remaining to trim the lead to 67-64. The fifth-seeded Wolverines face top-seed Michigan State on Saturday in the first semifinal at Madison Square Garden.

Duncan Robinson came off the MI bench to nail all three of the team's 3-pointers, including a trey with 2:17 left in overtime that gave the Wolverines a lead they did not relinquish. "The foul shots didn't go in, The 3s didn't go in". "I'm not especially proud of the way we executed".

"We just showed everybody that it's not the same Rutgers that's going to keel over and die", said Mike Williams, a senior from Brooklyn. He also converted a 3 to put MI up 72-70 in overtime.

Page recorded her 15th-straight double digit scoring effort with a game-high 38 points in the opener, which marked her seventh career 30-point game. "It all stems from teammates and coaches giving me confidence to step up and take that shot in the first place". MI did attempt 14 more free throws than Iowa, but fouls in critical moments really hurt Michigan's ability to pull away in the second half. But the Wolverines' Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman missed the front end of a one-and-one. "Step up and make plays at the end". "We haven't had three guys in foul trouble in the first half, and our situation in the second half, with guys fouling out", MI coach John Beilein said.

"Give them credit, but I'm just so pleased with how we fought back and got into overtime", Iowa coach Fran McCaffrey said.

Big man Jon Teske played a critical role off the bench today with Wagner in foul trouble, and he was a key to Michigan's defensive success.

A Smith layup would pull Penn State within four points, 24-20, and spark a 15-0 run over the next four minutes. The forward score seven first-half points in just six minutes to help Iowa turn a six-point deficit into a five-point lead. Iowa went into halftime leading 40-35 with a fantastic first half performance.

Tyler Cook and Garza scored 13 points apiece for Iowa.

New Air Force One Deal Cleared For Takeoff
At issue was the price tag for the two 747 jumbo airplanes that the Air Force bought from Boeing last summer. A White House spokesman said the "informal" contract will save taxpayers more than $1.4 billion.

"Even though the season didn't go as we hoped, these guys never quit on the staff, the staff never quit on them, and most importantly, they didn't quit on each other". That cut Michigan's lead to 53-51. She topped the mark of 12 which Mazzante set vs. Wisconsin on March 3, 2002.

He finished the game with 11 points, five rebounds and two steals.

Iowa: It was quite a few days for Bohannon. He had just short-armed his last-second free-throw attempt. The sophomore guard had just come off of a 25-point game against IL the previous night.

Along with the scoring mark, Page also broke Mazzante's mark for most field goals in the Big Ten Tournament game, hitting 14 shots from the field - including four 3-pointers.

"Just a couple of different possessions go a different way it could have been a totally different game", Bohannon said. Last year, the Wolverines did it as a No. 8 seed. MI made it to Washington for the tournament and proceeded to rip off four victories as an eight seed to secure an automatic NCAA bid.

No. 15 MI knocked off Iowa 77-71 in overtime on Thursday in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament in New York City.

Iowa: On to next season for the Hawkeyes.
