Tweet Up: Michigan 77, Purdue 76 OT

The Wolverines stormed back from a 19-point first-half defect to squeak out a 77-76 overtime win at Purdue, thanks to a Glenn Robinson III buzzer-beater, Wednesday night.
This is a chronological timeline of how the game played out on Twitter.
First Half:
Michigan's Glenn Robinson III gets a couple of boos from the Purdue crowd. I mean, his father's retired jersey IS in the rafters here.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 26, 2014
Feel like it's a little short-sighted to name a student section after a coach (Paint Crew). Not that Painter's gonna get fired, but still.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 27, 2014
Nik Stauskas holding his right wrist/hand/forearm following a missed circus shot. Now with the trainer.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 27, 2014
IF THAT'S AN ULNAR NERVE INJURY I SWEAR TO GOD...— Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 27, 2014
Trainer John DoRosario made him shake his hand to prove the wrist was okay— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 27, 2014
It wouldn't be a Michigan game if the Wolverines didn't face an early hole. Down 7-0 two minutes in— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 27, 2014
Stauskas about to come back in.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 27, 2014
Good defense by Jordan Morgan there to force the travel on A.J. Hammons.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
With his last three-point miss, Glenn Robinson III has made only five of his last 26 three-point attempts (19.2%).— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) February 27, 2014
Michigan starts 1-6 from the field, 1-4 from three... Only trail 7-4 four minutes in— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 27, 2014
Michigan 1 of 7 from the field. Its attempted just two 2's.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 27, 2014
Purdue playing great individual defense thus far ... Kinda like v Nebraska early— Dan Dakich (@dandakich) February 27, 2014
Terone Johnson draws face-guarding duties on Stauskas. The 6-4 senior is in his chest defensively.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 27, 2014
Two open looks off of dribble-handoffs brick on consecutive possessions. Even though the defense has only been so-so, I'm not too worried.— Alex Cook (@alexcook616) February 27, 2014
This is where you grit your teeth and say nothing if you're Beilein -- all those 3's are open. You have to take those.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 27, 2014
I'm starting to think some supernatural force is preventing Michigan from shooting well in the state of Indiana.— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) February 27, 2014
Glenn Robinson used his left hand on the dribble. Michigan might win by a billion.— Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 27, 2014
Best move I've ever seen from Glenn. More of that please— Trés Fuller (@tresfuller) February 27, 2014
Spike Albrecht taking the reins for a Michigan offense that's 2-for-10 from the field. Down 14-6, 13 mins till half.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 27, 2014
If Michigan wins tonight, it'll be the fourth time this season and the second straight game it's won after trailing by 10+.— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) February 27, 2014
Sluggish offense for Michigan, with just six points in the first 7-plus minutes -- and none by Stauskas or LeVert— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
Looks like some serious MSU hangover for Michigan. Down 17-6 at 11:43 of the first half.— Chris Balas (@Balas_Wolverine) February 27, 2014
Reminder: Michigan trailed Purdue by 12 with 12 minutes left in West Lafayette last year and still won by five points.— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) February 27, 2014
Apparently, Purdue fans take this Kiss Cam very seriously...all looked to be 50-plus and just went after it. #stillgotit— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
Purdue punching Michigan in the mouth early. The more I see the Big Ten, the more I suspect that league tournament will be chaos.— Pat Forde (@YahooForde) February 27, 2014
Purdue is shooting 81.3% eFG. Michigan is shooting 22.7% eFG. This will likely not continue.— Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 27, 2014
Horford misses a layup and commits foul 10 feet away from basket... sitting down now for Morgan— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 27, 2014
Michigan approaching the "worst its looked all year" territory now.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 27, 2014
Things aren't looking good for ol' Michigan, guys.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 27, 2014
Yogi, Marble, Terone Johnson: against U-M, all three have looked like superheroes whose powers involve putting orange balls through hoops.— Andy Reid (@AReid_Wolverine) February 27, 2014
Purdue has been ignoring crashing big men. Michigan has been missing open men. Out of TO, Michigan tries going inside and Morgan falls over.— Chris Gaerig (@cgaerig) February 27, 2014
Purdue's made only 32.5% of its threes in conference play. Purdue's made 71.4% of its three tonight. This won't last.— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) February 27, 2014
Tonight's start is a fantastic tribute to road games in the #AmakerEra. "Get it to 10 by half," we'd say.— Griffin Hickman (@griffinhickman) February 27, 2014
Michigan goes 1-3-1...generates a missed shot.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
Caris LeVert hits a triple to cut Purdue lead to 29-19, at 4:05 mark.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
Hard to believe Michigan is within 10 points right now, but it's true.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 27, 2014
Stat of the night: Jordan Morgan has 3 assists, tying his career high.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
Michigan is the best FT shooting team in the B1G. Purdue's the worst. So, of course, U-M is 4-of-7 and PU is 6-of-6.— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) February 27, 2014
I'm sure Nik Stauskas is sooo insulted by every school's U.S.A. chant. It's like he didn't decide himself to enter a college in this nation.— Griffin Hickman (@griffinhickman) February 27, 2014
GRIII has a habit of being overeager on putback opportunities. Had a chance to pull back out for the last shot, instead shot contested two.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 27, 2014
It's been a pretty ugly first half pic.twitter.com/yk56kAA3eZ— Dustin Johnston (@DJPhotoVideo) February 27, 2014
Another weird stat: Purdue has 37 points and Michigan only has 24. Very strange.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 27, 2014
Second Half:
Second half opens and U-M is attacking the basket on its first few possessions— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 27, 2014
.@G_R_III gets a friendly roll and the first points of the second half.— Michigan Basketball (@umichbball) February 27, 2014
Michigan again within single digits, after Walton triple.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
That was a huge play by JMo. Michigan already has 11 offensive rebounds, including three apiece by LeVert and Morgan. Lots of second chances— Andy Reid (@AReid_Wolverine) February 27, 2014
He is having a heck of a game. RT @detnewsRodBeard: Jordan Morgan's line: 5 pts, 5 reb, 3 asst...not bad.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 27, 2014
Michigan is now rebounding 42% of their misses. Makes the 34.7 eFG% even more mindblowing.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 27, 2014
Purdue led 29-12 with 5:55 left in the first half. Since then, in a little over 10 minutes, Michigan's outscored PU, 20-12.— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) February 27, 2014
Dreadful shooting will do that. RT @BSnowScout UM has more offensive rebounds than defensive rebounds. Don't see that too often 25 mins in— Dylan Burkhardt (@umhoops) February 27, 2014
Jordan Morgan is having a phenomenal game. Great post defense, rebounding … doing all the dirty work right now.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 27, 2014
Michigan continues to take one step forward, two steps back.— Dylan Burkhardt (@umhoops) February 27, 2014

Michigan trying to make a move as a banked transition jumper by Stauskas cuts Purdue's lead to 45-38 with 13:13 to go.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 27, 2014

The amount of critical, quick trigger threes for Michigan off the bench in road atmospheres out of Zak Irvin is incredible for a freshman— Kyle Bogenschutz (@KyleBogie) February 27, 2014
Michigan now hitting some shots. Big 3 by Irvin trims the deficit to 45-41. Irvin now heads to FT line for three FTs. 11:42 left.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 27, 2014

Zak Irvin should be given a blue ribbon for marksmanship.— Andy Reid (@AReid_Wolverine) February 27, 2014
Three-point numbers have finally reached something resembling sanity. Incidentally, so has the score.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 27, 2014
Parental Advisory: @zirvin21 is way too turnt. http://t.co/Updm6eZX0j— Michigan Basketball (@umichbball) February 27, 2014
Oh man Jon...that's a bad play. First horribly out of position on box-out, then a soft foul. Bugh.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 27, 2014
Big response by Purdue with a 8-3 spurt to stretch the lead back to 55-49.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 27, 2014
Playing just 70 miles from his hometown of Fishers, Ind., Zak Irvin leads Michigan with eight second-half points.— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 27, 2014

Walton limping after getting swatted. About to shoot free throws.— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 27, 2014
In case you missed it, Hammons' block/foul on Walton went into the student section in the stands.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
The best free throw shooting team in the B1G is shooting 58% tonight. The worst FT shooting team in the B1G hasn't missed.— Rob Rogacki (@BYBRob) February 27, 2014
Beilein searching for a referee to argue with...they turn their backs.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
Beilein hot, calls timeout to yell at the refs after Stauskas is knocked down with no call. Neither interested in listening.— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 27, 2014
...and there's the payback call.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
Third time Terone Johnson has scored 22 or more against Michigan. He's done it just four other times in his career.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 27, 2014

What was that, LeVert? Steps? Or just long legs?— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 27, 2014
A.J. Hammons just fouled out on that? Wow. What a break for Michigan.— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) February 27, 2014

Stauskas misses a 3 at the buzzer...overtime.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 27, 2014
Not a great final possession there. Remember, Purdue with no AJ Hammons in overtime.— Dylan Burkhardt (@umhoops) February 27, 2014
