Ohio Upsets Michigan 65-60 In NCAA Tourney

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Walter Offutt grabbed a loose ball, was fouled by Evan Smotrycz and sank both of his free throws with 6.8 seconds left to preserve Ohio’s 65-60 upset of Michigan on Friday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament’s Midwest Regional.

The 13th-seeded Bobcats (28-7) had the Wolverines on their heels throughout the game, but Michigan’s Trey Burke hit a 3 with 4:12 left to cut it to 63-60. But the Wolverines missed their final five shots, four by Burke.

Fourth-seeded Michigan (24-10) got the rebound on Burke’s third miss, a 3-point shot with 22 seconds left, but Smotrycz lost control of the ball, and Offutt grabbed it.

Ohio shot 51.2 percent and held Michigan to 40.7 percent shooting, including 7 for 23 from 3-point range, typically the Wolverines’ comfort zone.

D.J. Cooper led the Bobcats with 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting.

Burke finished with 16 points.
