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 in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Hardaway finished with 23 points, including five straight 3-pointers in the second half.

The Wolverines 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.

Purdue 58, Penn State 49: Ronnie Johnson scored 16 points and A.J. Hammons 15 as Purdue downed Penn State in State College, Pa., to even its Big Ten Conference record at 5-5 while keeping Penn State winless in the conference.

The Boilermakers struggled through shooting woes, going 0-for-10 on 3-pointers and shooting 40.8 percent (20 of 49) overall. But it was considerably better than Penn State’s 19-for-62 (30.6 percent) performance.

Bradley 76, Evansville 70: Dyricus Simms-Edwards scored 21 points, Walt Lemon Jr. and Tyshon Pickett added 18 apiece, and Bradley scored the game’s final six points to beat Evansville in Peoria.

Southern Illinois 64, Wichita State 62: Jalen Pendleton hit a short jumper with 2 seconds left, helping Southern Illinois snap a six-game losing streak with a victory over reeling Wichita State in Carbondale.

Villanova 94, DePaul 71: Ryan Arcidiacono scored 23 points, and Villanova put together an impressive shooting display to pull away for a 94-71 victory at Rosemont.

Valparaiso 86, Illinois-Chicago 61: Ryan Broekhoff scored 22 points, including six 3-pointers, to lead Valparaiso to a victory over conference foe Illinois-Chicago in Valparaiso, Ind.
