ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) In a stellar matchup of senior point guards, Payton Pritchard prevailed in the end.

Pritchard scored 19 of his 23 points after halftime, and No. 10 Oregon outlasted No. 5 Michigan 71-70 in overtime Saturday. With the game on the line, Pritchard repeatedly drove past Michigan's Zavier Simpson, and although Simpson had eight points and 11 assists, the Wolverines lost their second straight game.

"I thought the intensity was really high. When they started hitting shots in the second half, their intensity went way up," Oregon coach Dana Altman said. "I thought the guys fought it off just enough to win."

Hagans scores 21 as No. 8 Kentucky rolls

"He knows what to expect and he has no anxiety about what he is doing and knows coming into the game," Calipari said.

The way he is playing, he's starting to master his skills."
