Michigan remains undefeated at home after big 68-56 win over Indiana


The Wolverines continued to protect home court Wednesday evening as they beat ranked Big Ten opponent Indiana 68-56 from Crisler.

Michigan’s Trey Burke continued to show why he is one of the best freshman guards in the country after he scored 18 points helping Michigan jump out to a 20 point first half lead.

John Beilein’s crew rebounded nicely after a tough loss to Ohio State this past weekend jumping out to a 28-8 lead in the first and remained undefeated at home.

Indiana didn’t give up though as they fought back to get within two points in the second half.

However Michigan’s Tim Hardaway Jr., hit a big three-pointer after Indiana’s Derek Elston missed the front end of a 1-and-1. Stu Douglass sealed the deal for the Wolverines hitting another three pointer to put the Wolverines up by eight.

Next up for the Wolverines is a road trip to East Lansing to take on the hated Michigan State Spartans from the Breslin Center.

After winning the first game this season in Ann Arbor and sweeping the series with the Spartans last season, Michigan will be looking for consecutive wins in East Lansing for the first time since 1997.

“The great teams wins on the road,” Beilein said. “You’ve really got to be special to play with a ‘today’s the day’ attitude, when you’re on the road”.
