The No. 16 Michigan Wolverines can thank Glenn Robinson III for their 77-76 win over the Purdue Boilermakers on Wednesday night.

The sophomore forward went 7-for-11 from the field for 17 points, but no two were more important than the ones he scored as time expired in overtime.

With the Wolverines down 76-75, UM coach John Beilein drew up an inbounds play that allowed Robinson to get free on the baseline. He took a dribble and then made a move to the basket, eventually laying the ball in as the buzzer went off.

This was a huge victory for Michigan, as it kept the Wolverines in first place in the Big Ten. They have a one-game lead over their in-state rivals, the Michigan State Spartans. With games against Minnesota, Illinois and Indiana ahead, the path is clear for Michigan to win the regular-season title.
