Trey Burke, Zack Novak and Stu Douglass hit 3-pointers to start overtime Tuesday night and No. 11 Michigan beat Northwestern 67-55 for its fourth straight victory.
Burke scored 19 to lead the Wolverines (21-7, 11-4), who made 14 3-pointers and kept their Big Ten title hopes alive with a hard-earned road victory.
Northwestern (16-11, 6-9), whose chances of getting to the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history were dealt another blow, got 14 points from John Shurna, six below his Big Ten leading average.
Shurna became the school's career scoring leader on Saturday, but he managed only four second-half points Tuesday night.
