No. 2 Michigan stays unbeaten, beats No. 21 Indiana 74-63

After starting slowly against some weaker teams in recent weeks, MI basketball did no such thing Sunday against in at the Crisler Center.

After the No. 21 Hoosiers' 74-63 loss to No. 2 MI at Crisler Arena on Sunday, Miller pointed to offensive execution and defensive will, and he came right up to the edge of questioning his players' manhood.

The Hoosiers came out firing in the second half, cutting the deficit to single digits for the first time since early in the first half, were never able to get closer than nine points as Juwan Morgan picked up his fourth foul with about eight minutes left.

Juwan Morgan scored 25 points with eight rebounds for IN, but needed 22 shots to get to his total after going 9-of-22 from the field.

That means that the Wolverines are winning their games by an average of points per game.

Further below MI players Jordan Poole and Brandon Johns discuss the game.

"We set the tone and we got their two big guys in foul trouble", MI coach John Beilein said.




MI got Indiana's best players in foul trouble in the opening minutes and took full advantage, building a cushion it used to stay undefeated. "We will need to rotate on defense and work in practice to prepare for them".

The Hoosiers were missing freshmen Rob Phinisee, Jake Forrester, Race Thompson and Jerome Hunter for Sunday's game, along with junior forward De'Ron Davis, who informed Miller after warm-ups he could not play due to an ankle injury.

Michigan: Plays at IL (4-11, 0-4) on Thursday.

IN fell to 12-3 overall and 3-1 in Big Ten play.

"Just going in there, it will be a dogfight for sure", Morgan said. The Hoosiers put 78.5 points per game up on the scoreboard and make 48 percent of their field goal attempts, but just 29.3 percent of their three pointers.

"He's fine, he's not the problem", Miller said of Morgan.
