Free throws give No. 5 Purdue 70-69 win over Michigan
(ANN ARBOR) – Isaac Haas made only 55 percent of his free throws as a freshman. Now a senior, the Purdue big man is a lot more reliable, and when he drew a foul in the final seconds of a tie game, the 7 foot 2 Haas was confident. Haas made a go-ahead free throw with four seconds remaining and No. 5 Purdue remained unbeaten in the Big Ten with a 70-69 victory over Michigan on Tuesday night. The Boilermakers (16-2, 5-0) have won 12 in a row, while the Wolverines had their seven-game winning streak snapped. Purdue is 5-0 in conference play for the first time since 1989-90. The clutch shot by Haas was part of a tense sequence in which the Boilermakers were given the ball after a long replay review. It initially appeared the Wolverines would be the team with a chance to win the game with the shot clock turned off.
A tight, back-and-forth second half came to a standstill in the final seconds when Michigan's Charles Matthews lost the ball while driving to the basket. Possession was originally awarded to the Wolverines (14-4, 3-2 Big Ten), but after the review, officials changed the call and gave it to Purdue with 6.2 seconds left. Zavier Simpson led Michigan with 15 points and 6 rebounds. Matthews added 14 points and 7 rebounds while Moritz Wagner had 11 points and Isaiah Livers 10 points off the bend. Haas scored 17 for Purdue, and Carsen Edwards added 19.
