However, the crowd in the Garden for the first-half of Illinois-Iowa was about 3,000.
A big reason Iowa had a lead at the break was the difference in 3-point shooting.
After going scoreless against Minnesota last week, Bohannon has come alive.
In the end, though, the result was. Iowa faces fifth-seeded MI, which had a first-round bye, on Thursday.
Thanks to Iowa, Illinois became the first of the 14 Big Ten men's basketball teams to bid Madison Square Garden adieu as the host of the Big Ten men's basketball tournament, and for quite a while. I think that once we get better collectively and come together as a unit and hone in on that stuff, I think the sky's the limit. "I'll evaluate myself and our staff and those things as we get into the offseason and the things we have to do better". "I knew there was going to be some battles". She leads the nation in points per game (25.3), total points (734), and field goals made (285), and ranks second in field goal percentage (66.7) and double-doubles (26), third in rebounds (370), and fifth in rebounds per game (12.8) and defensive rebounds per game (9).
"I've never been done in February before - ever", IL coach Brad Underwood said. They have great, young talent.
Davison made sure to stop the scoring drought before it got out of hand.
From the outset, the Wolverines appeared off-kilter.
And he wasn't alone. And without the services of Moe Wagner, who was in foul trouble all game, the Wolverines found a way.
Iowa (14-19) shot 55.2 percent from the field in opening a 40-35 halftime lead but it made only 30.5 percent of its shots after that and the offense really stagnated in overtime against a stubborn MI defense.
Jordan Bohannon made a 3 off the dribble with 16.3 seconds left in regulation to tie it at 67 for Iowa, which trailed for much of the second half. Forward Luka Garza followed that up three possessions later with a three from the left wing.
Robinson had 11 points and five rebounds in 27 minutes off the bench.
That deficit lasted less than two minutes. Last year, the Wolverines did it as a No. 8 seed.
By the 10-minute mark, the Hawkeyes were in the double bonus, including all-important fourth fouls on both Wagner and Abdur-Rahkman. These two are the backbone of this team and have to score at will.
These two teams met twice already this season.
Matthews did a little bit of everything for the Wolverines on Thursday. U-M shot just 38 percent in that game. He responded by helping MI limit opponents to 37 goals during the last 16 games or an average of 2.3 goals. The season ended at the Barclays Center, where MI spoiled a 12-point halftime lead against No. 6 Notre Dame. Lamar Stevens dropped a career high 30 points, and Mike Watkins added 18 points and 17 rebounds.
Johnson said as a player you just literally have to take games one at a time at this time of the season. He appealed to the NCAA for reinstatement on Friday, and on Saturday, Bridges was reinstated and cleared to play in the Spartans' win against Ohio State. The Scarlet Knights shot poorly in the first half, but led most of the way as Minnesota missed its first nine shots from the floor and was held scoreless the first 4:08 of the game.
But with 2:06 left, the decrepit Wolverines offense finally answered the bell. His OT 3 put MI up 72-70. At this time, the point guard was watching the game with friends as a high school senior, unsure if he'd be joining the Badgers next season. "We just have to focus in on that day and go forward from there", junior forward Juwan Morgan said. Robinson, however, was the team's lone bright spot from that area, making all three of U-M's triples on six attempts. "I've always heard that motto".
The other two games I believe are just obvious picks.
Besides, it's March now.
