Michigan got a reprieve to send the game to overtime after a deep made three pointer was ruled to have been taken after time expired. In the extra session, the Wolverines got off to a great start, with a three pointer from Franz Wagner, but the Ducks continued to battle back from potential momentum shifting plays as they did throughout the day.

Trailing by one point in the closing seconds, Zavier Simpson drove to the basket and missed, with tip-in efforts from Brandon Johns Jr. and Isaiah Livers also coming off the rim.

Wagner led the way for the Wolverines with 21 points, while Simpson had 11 assists. David DeJulius was a bright spot for Michigan in the first half, scoring 12 of his 14 points before the break, while Livers scored all 13 of his points after the break.

Falling to 8-3 on the season, the Wolverines will follow a slower, easier path to closing out 2020, with games against only Presbyterian and UMass-Lowell before starting up regular Big Ten play in January. Michigan hosts Presbyterian next Saturday at noon with television coverage provided by Big Ten Network.
