In the closing seconds, Simpson couldn't convert a layup try and Johns missed a tip-in, allowing the Ducks to escape.

Oregon led 31-23 at halftime.

Duarte was fouled on a 3-point attempt in the opening minute of the second half and made all three free throws, extending the Ducks' advantage to 11. Michigan then chipped away, closing within five points twice in the first four minutes of the half on Livers' 3-pointers.

A Simpson layup with 13:46 left made it 42-39. Will Richardson doubled the Oregon lead with a three-point play, but the Wolverines answered with a 12-3 spurt to gain a 51-48 lead.
