INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kameron Chatman made a 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds left to give Michigan a 72-69 upset over No. 10 Indiana in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals on Friday.

Indiana couldn’t get a final shot off after the referees put time back on the clock following a replay review.

It was only the second field goal Chatman made and it came right in front of the Wolverines’ bench. It sent Michigan (22-11) into Saturday’s semifinals against either No. 13 Purdue or surprising Illinois.

Zak Irvin led the Wolverines with 17 points and Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman had 15.

Troy Williams scored 16 and Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell had 14 for the Big Ten regular-season champs. The Hoosiers (25-7) have reached the semis only once since 2007.

Indiana appeared to have the game in hand when it took a 66-61 lead with 2:36 left. But the Wolverines rallied to score the final six points.
