Charles Matthews helps Michigan overcome 15-point deficit


Michigan defeated UCLA 78-69 in overtime on Saturday after trailing by 15 points in the second half.

Former Cat Charles Matthews’ 20 points played a huge part in Michigan’s comeback win.

Michigan tied the game with 11 seconds left to send the game into overtime. It was all Michigan in overtime and the Wolverines outscored the Bruins 13-4 in overtime.

A corner three by Matthews in overtime helped seal the Michigan win.

Matthews, a redshirt sophomore, scored 14 of his 20 points in the second half after sitting out most of the first half with two fouls. Matthews finished with eight boards and three assists. Matthews struggled from the free throw line finishing 2-of-10 from the charity stripe.

I think I can speak for all of the BBN.. It is great to see Matthews succeeding at Michigan.
