Northwestern Beats Michigan on Full-Court Pass, Buzzer-Beater

The Wildcats won the game 67-65 and the Wolverines missed a chance to essentially wrap up an NCAA tournament berth and a top-six seed in the Big 10 tournament.

The Wildcats now have an RPI of 50 with a key road win at then No. 7 Wisconsin (66-59; February 12).

Flaherty is averaging 20 points and has led the Wolverines to a 22-8 record (11-5 Big Ten) and No. 3 seed in the Big Ten tournament. Shooting, driving, in-between game, everything. "When I caught it, I was like, 'the rim is right there.' We've never practiced that". But he's really had a great career. MI has won five of six, losing only at Minnesota in controversial fashion in that stretch, and has an opportunity to pick up a critical road win tonight.

Michigan State ends the season with a road tilt at Maryland on Saturday. The Hoosiers had more wins over ranked opponents (four) than NU does this year (two), and their RPI was 37 compared to NU's current rating of 50. They've just grinded so hard to get to this point.

"He's a pretty good jumper", Beilein said. I just think that the shot clock, switching of ball screens, the high level synergy right now, it's tough to out-trick people.

"This was just fantastic for us and this program", Pardon said, according to a USA Today report. The game that will be known as the most important win in Northwestern history. Junior Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and Irvin had 13 and 12 points, respectively, while sophomore Moritz Wagner added eight points and a team-high 10 rebounds.

"I felt so bad after the IN game", James told Sporting News.

Georges St-Pierre vs. Michael Bisping booked for UFC middleweight title
He is now riding a career-best five-fight UFC win streak that includes a harrowing victory over Octagon legend Anderson Silva . I want it for my children's sake, for my family, for when I'm retired so we can still live a good life.

Wednesday night's win is the latest example of long sports droughts ending with dramatic moments.

"His effort level has increased". If Northwestern loses its next two, they will have done the same. When he shows that, it's good for him, but also good for our team. The ball needed to be in-bounded, brought up the court, and make it to the basket. U-M will play next Thursday as the No. 6, 7 or 8 seed, though No. 6 is a remote chance.

Except this time, it wasn't a play they had practiced. "Just give us one dance, and we'll happily remember it for the rest of our lives". The point is that the streak is over thanks to one of the most incredible passes you'll see on a basketball court.

For now, however, they'll have to make due with what they have and hope it's enough. Northwestern's Bryant McIntosh is now up to 525 career assists, three short of Michael Thompson's school record. Overall it would be the 28th for the Wolverines all-time. The field went from 32 to 64 decades ago and is now at 68.

IL (18-12, 8-9 Big Ten) shot 45 percent from the field and 11-26 from 3-point range. U-M has had 10 or fewer turnovers in 21 games.

While she was torching Iowa for 34 points, wonder if the Northwestern men were on their phones watching her?

Although the NCAA tournament doesn't use this metric explicitly, how a team is playing down the stretch weighs heavily.
