(ANN ARBOR) - The wildest play of the game belonged to the Bobcats. The win, eventually, went to the Wolverines. Hunter Dickinson scored 24 points and had 14 rebounds as No. 20 Michigan, startled by a crazy buzzer-beater at the end of regulation, beat Ohio 70-66 in overtime Sunday. Down 63-61 with 2.1 seconds left in the second half, Ohio threw a length-of-the-court inbounds pass that hit the far rim. After a lucky bounce and a short miss, Dwight Wilson tossed in a floater to tie it as time expired. As several Wolverines stared in disbelief, the basket stood after a video review and forced overtime. Michigan (4-1) had taken a late lead when Kobe Bufkin was fouled after he grabbed a rebound of a missed Ohio shot with 2.1 seconds left and the score 61-all. Bufkin made both free throws, setting up Wilson's basket. The Wolverines ended up outscoring Ohio 7-3 in overtime. Jett Howard added 13 points for the Wolverines. Wilson had 21 points to lead Ohio (1-3), while Jaulin Hunter had 14 points and Miles Brown added 11 points. It was the first meeting between the schools since March 16, 2012, when Ohio beat Michigan 65-60 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Michigan had won the previous three meetings. Both were coming off of lopsided losses: Ohio lost at Detroit Mercy 88-74 on Wednesday, and Michigan lost 87-72 to Arizona State on Thursday.
