Darius Morris had 23 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. scored all 13 of his points in the second half to help Michigan overcome two double-digit deficits Sunday to defeat Penn State, 65-62.
Trailing by 10 with 8:15 left, Morris and Hardaway sparked a 21-7 run to propel the Wolverines (14-10, 4-7 Big Ten). Two straight layups by Morris gave Michigan a 57-53 lead with 3:12 left.
Penn State's Talor Battle (31 points) added a 3-point play, but had a turnover on a drive with 1:56 left. Hardaway converted on the break to give the Wolverines a 61-56 lead with 1:39 left.
The Nittany Lions (12-10, 5-6), who also led by 11 in the first half, couldn't hang on with leading rebounder Jeff Brooks sidelined because of a dislocated right shoulder. Cammeron Woodyard had a career-high 10 points starting in Brooks' place.
Morris hit five foul shots over the final 37 seconds to seal the win.
