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.

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.

The Michigan Wolverines continued to impress a college basketball loving nation on Sunday, defeating a talented Indiana Hoosiers team by 11 points.

Oddly enough, the Michigan Wolverines are just one more win away from tying the best start in school history.

The Hoosiers (12-3, 3-1) had won seven straight since losing at Duke.

Chris Evert has no doubt that history will only reflect well on Serena Williams , who is preparing for the Australian Open . Her tearful post-match demeanour raised concerns the youngster was becoming overwhelmed by the situation.


Brandon Johns Jr, a freshman who came into the game averaging 0.7 points and 1.1 rebounds per game, played a season-high 13 minutes, due to the absence of Isaiah Livers, finishing with eight points and eight rebounds.

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. When Morgan went out, the Hoosiers had to turn to little-used Clifton Moore because big man De'Ron Davis is dealing with an injury.

MI jumped out to a 23-9 lead in the game and led 44-29 at halftime. Both went to the bench with two fouls early in the game and Morgan was limited even more in the second half because he had two more fouls while trying to defend shots from the perimeter, decisions that were costly. It's going to take a massive effort to get there because, again, this Wolverines team is very good.

IN will have more depth when center De'Ron Davis, who warmed up Sunday, and guard Rob Phinisee return from injuries.

With the absence of Robert Phinisee for the Hoosiers once again, Devonte Green was inserted into the starting lineup, causing the Hoosiers to have no real bench production, with three players combining for just 2 rebounds and 0-for-2 from the field.
