INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Derrick Walton Jr. scored 26 points and Michigan made 16 3-pointers Friday to hold off Oklahoma State 92-91 in the first round of the Midwest Regional.
The seventh-seeded Wolverines (25-11) set a school record for 3s in an NCAA Tournament game. They have won six straight -- five since a frightening plane mishap on the way to last week's Big Ten Tournament.
Juwan Evans scored 23 points to lead the 10th-seeded Cowboys (20-13), who finished the season with four consecutive losses.
It looked like that streak might end Friday after Oklahoma State opened the second half on a 12-5 run to take a 52-46 lead.
