Ann Arbor, Mich. • 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.

Hardaway finished with 23 points, including five straight 3-pointers in the second half. The Wolverines (21-2, 8-2 Big Ten) 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 it.

Arkansas 80, No. 2 Florida 69 • At Fayetteville, Ark., BJ Young led three players in double figures with 13 points as Arkansas opened quickly and never let up in a shocking victory. Arkansas opened the game 15 of 20 from the field. The win improves the Razorbacks to 14-1 at home this season, and it snaps the Gators' 10-game winning streak. —
