Above all others, though, the best Big Ten game of this weekend might come in Ann Arbor as in basketball travels on the road to take on MI.

After going 4-for-9 in the first half from three point range, MI failed to make another three during the game, due to the Hoosiers committal to force the Wolverines to win the game in the paint.

Indiana's Juwan Morgan scored 25 points on 9-of-22 shooting.

MI head coach John Beilein discusses the Wolverines' 74-63 win over IN on Sunday afternoon.

Miller said all three players entered the game ready to play and did their part for the team, but he wished they made a larger offensive imprint.

The Hoosiers (12-3, 3-1) had won seven straight since losing at Duke and their chances to extend the streak were hurt because their stars were forced to sit a lot. The Hoosiers return to action on Friday night at Maryland.

Jordan Poole also finished with 18 points for the Wolverines (15-0, 4-0 Big Ten), who are a win away from matching the school's best start.

MI led 44-29 at halftime and didn't have much trouble keeping a comfortable cushion after halftime in part because Morgan picked up his third and fourth fouls. The Michigan Wolverines, the 2nd ranked team in men's college basketball, are getting the opportunity to host the Indiana Hoosiers, the 21st ranked team.

"We have to make sure to close out on all their shooters", Brazdeikis said.

"Just going in there, it will be a dogfight for sure", Morgan said.

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. The second-ranked MI basketball team is now 15-0 on the season and will shoot for 16-0 Thursday at IL.
