No. 2 MI stays unbeaten, beats No

No. 2 MI stays unbeaten, beats No

Instead, the Wolverines played like a top-five team and never trailed once to IN, the No. 21 team IN the country IN a 74-63 win.

IU faced a double-digit deficit less than six minutes into the game, while Langford and Morgan sat idly on fold-out chairs emblazoned with the MI logo.

Morgan went an uncharacteristic 4 of 12 from the field himself in the first half, while Langford contributed only two field goals.

IU battled its way back into game behind 26 combined second-half points from Langford and Morgan, but the comeback petered out short of bringing the game any closer than seven points. What goes down Sunday may help reshape how we see the conference race unfolding. "They have a lot of good talent on their team and we need to make sure they don't get open shots".

The Hoosiers and Wolverines enter as two of the four teams still unbeaten in Big Ten play.

The Hoosiers failed to get the stops they needed on defense to fight their way back in the game after an early deficit. "Now, that's not gonna work for us".

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.

IN will have more depth when center De'Ron Davis, who warmed up Sunday, and guard Rob Phinisee return from injuries. The second-ranked MI basketball team is now 15-0 on the season and will shoot for 16-0 Thursday at IL.

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

IU's injuries and foul trouble forced Miller to turn to a trio of unlikely players for long stretches of the game.

The 11th highest scoring duo in the country, Romeo Langford and Juwan Morgan had two fouls each before the under 16 minute media timeout, putting the Hoosiers in a hole early on.

Two of the better three point shooting teams in the country, percentage wise, combined for just 9-of-30 from deep. We're not tough enough starting games.
