Northwestern beats MI on a buzzer-beater play 'we never practiced'

Northwestern beats MI on a buzzer-beater play 'we never practiced'

Northwestern had taken possession after Michigan's Zak Irvin missed a go-ahead three-pointer with seconds left and the ball went out of bounds.

On Wednesday in Welsh-Ryan, Taphorn was in the same situation.

Now that the regular season is over, the Northwestern women's basketball team is headed into the 2017 Big Ten Tournament. Michigan's defense forced Northwestern into 10 turnovers and scored 10 points off those miscues.

" Dererk Pardon's layup as time expired gave Northwestern a 67-65 win over MI inside Welsh-Ryan Arena".

No. 6 Michigan State (19-10, 9-7) vs. 11-14 victor, 9 p.m.

Pardon's layup was improbable because it came after a fullcourt pass. MI had missed a 3-point attempt and the ball was knocked out of bounds. The Wildcats will play next year at Allstate Arena in Rosemont while their facility undergoes a $110 million renovation.

Oprah Winfrey Considers 'Possibility' of Running for President After Donald Trump's Win
Rubenstein asked Winfrey , 63, as part of his interview for The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations. That mental block can at least partially explain why so many political experts brushed off Trump's own candidacy.

Both bracketologists have Illinois State as a No. 12 seed.

Kipper Nichols made one of two free throws to give IL a 73-70 lead with three seconds left. The Wildcats are catching fire at the right time, in hopes of sparking a run in the Big Ten Tournament. Leron Black added 15 points and seven rebounds. If not, there's tremendous pressure to win at Nebraska Sunday night in the finale.

IL travels to Rutgers on Saturday for its season finale.

At this point it's beginning to look like this will also be the first Northwestern team to make the NCAA Tournament, but what is clear is that this team is already in unprecedented territory. They reached 18-4 on February 1 and the NCAAs seemed inevitable; then they lost leading scorer Scottie Lindsey to an illness and the calamity seemed all too familiar. The game that will send Northwestern dancing for the first time in program history.

MI is averaging 78.3 points and ranks in the top 10 nationally in field-goal percentage (.473) and first in the Big Ten in 3-point shooting (.395), with Flaherty connecting on 37.2 percent of her long-range shots. Most likely, the Wolverines will be No. 7 if they beat the Cornhuskers or No. 8 if they lose. Fans stormed the court in what served as kickoff to a purple party that will come to a peak when Selection Sunday comes on March 12.

Collins, a sophomore who has made himself a candidate for ACC player of the year, finished 7 of 12 from the field and 11 of 12 from the foul line to earn his 12th straight 20-point performance.
