Michigan beats Savannah St. 66-64 in OT
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP)—DeShawn Sims made a basket from the corner as time expired in overtime Saturday to rally Michigan to a 66-64 victory over Savannah State.
Sims finished with 23 points and Manny Harris added 22 to lead the Wolverines (5-1).
Raye Bailey and Anthony Jones had 19 and 13, respectively, for the Tigers (4-2) who led nearly all but three minutes of regulation.
Freshman Zack Novak stole the ball in the final 3 seconds of regulation, drove the length of floor and missed a dunk that would have given Michigan the win.
