No. 3 Michigan answered the bell on Tuesday night against No. 10 Ohio State, defeating the Buckeyes 76-74 in overtime.

Tim Hardaway Jr. was huge on the offensive end, and came up with the game's final play on the defensive end. Trey Burke had an equally crucial block late to punctuate his offensive play.

Dick Vitale called the pair the best backcourt in the nation, but who was the MVP in Michigan's win over Ohio State? Think it was someone else, let us know in the comments below.

Burke's like Ricochet Rabbit at times. Out of control, careening headlong into the defense, too much one on one, not getting teammates involved enough. Basically, trying to do too much and win the game single-handedly. It almost cost them the game. And Albrecht did the exact same thing when he came into the game to give Burke a breather. Beilein yanked his butt out pretty quick though after two straight turnovers. Burke did step it up on defense at the end, but Hardaway Jr was the MVP of this game with his huge Three's.

Heck of a thrilling game! Good work all of you Wolverines. You never gave up---and played as a team.

It was probably Hardways six threes in a row.

Probably a safe bet.
