Both teams were shaky to begin the
initial overtime session, the Wolver-
ines scoring their first basket with just
over two minutes remaining. Freshman
Willie Mitchell converted down low
off of a nice feed from Conlan to tie the
score at 75 and send the game into the
second extra session.
Michigan had opportunities to win
game in both regulation and over-
time but failed to get a good look at the
basket. The Wolverines neglected to
call a timeout because they did not want
to give Iowa an opportunity to set up
their trapping defense.
The final five minutes of the game
took on the same form as the rest of
the contest. Iowa scored first and had
the lead for most of the period. The
wkeyes held a one-point advan-
e and the ball with 57.9 seconds to
go, but the Wolverines forced a jump
ball and gained possession because of
With 11.5 seconds on the clock se-
nior Jimmy King hit Jackson with a
perfect pass as he cut to the basket,
giving Michigan its final one-point
margin of victory. Freshman Maceo
Baston rejected an Iowa shot with 2.2
fronds on the clock, but knocked the
ball out of bounds giving the Hawkeyes
one final chance.
Iowa's final shot was not even
close and the Wolverines, celebrated
the hard-fought victory.
"I felt like I was on top of the

The Wolverines lacked the same
ingredient they've been looking for
all season. It's been a year-long
search for coach Steve Fisher to
find some intensity out on the floor.
Many times this season Michigan
has looked more like it was
sleepwalking than playing a

Wolverines played like uncaged
animals. They scrapped and clawed
and fought their way back into the

something to Michigan. The team

to catch the Hawkeyes.
"Every possession is key to the

Conlan spearheaded the Michigan
attack on both ends of floor. On
offense, the freshman moved the ball,
setting up a number of Wolverine
baskets. He even got in the scoring
act with a driving, off-balance layup
- a play that many didn't think
existed in the Michigan point guard
playbook any more.
On the defensive end, Conlan
got in Iowa sharpshooter Chris
Kingsbury's shorts all night long,
never allowing him to get a good
look at the basket. Conlan kept the
game alive with several key
defensive plays at the end of
regulation and in overtime.
He played relentlessly, never
showing signs of fatigue and never
giving Fisher any reason to ever
take him out of the game.
A new-found enthusiasm filtered
throughout the entire team on the
court as well as into the exuberant
Crisler Arena crowd. Every player
out there stepped up to block a shot,
make a steal, or hit a tough shot to
keep the Wolverines going.
"The crowd did a great job
tonight," Conlan said. "They gave
me so much energy I thought I
could go another 20 minutes. The
atmosphere was incredible."
The Wolverines constantly dove
for loose balls, got in Iowa's face
on defense - high-fiving and fist-
pumping their way to tough victory
over a good Hawkeye squad.
"We found the intensity that we
need to bring to the table every
night," Jackson said. "Against Penn
State we played sluggishly with no
Despite last night's victory,
Michigan is still a team desperate for
wins if it wants to make it back to the
NCAA Tournament. The slow start
has left the Wolverines in a big hole,
but digging out of that crater will be
easier if they have complete efforts
like they did against Iowa.
In the meantime, Fisher may
have found a viable weapon to use
from now on in his lineup. He's
been sitting a few feet away from
him all year long.
