BLOOMINGTON, IN (WQLR) – Michigan entered Saturday night as the #1 team in college basketball, but found themselves in a 13-point hole just five minutes into the battle in Bloomington against #3 Indiana. They stormed back in the second half, but fell short by an 81-73 final.

Indiana has won 15 of its last 16 home games against Michigan, and they ran out to a 20-7 lead in the opening five minutes of the game. All five starters reached double figures for the Hoosiers with Cody Zeller leading the way scoring 19 points to go with nine rebounds.

Trey Burke led all scorers with 25 points. Tim Hardaway Jr. and Nik Stauskas were the other Michigan starters to hit double figures with 18 and 10 respectively. Mitch McGary scored 10 off the bench while Caris LeVert added four. Michigan held Indiana’s bench to eight points, but the biggest deficiencies favored the Hoosiers as they hit 22-of-25 free throws compared to the Wolverines 6-of-7 from the line. Michigan was also out rebounded by a 36-22 margin.

The road does not get any easier for the Wolverines as they host #11 Ohio State on Tuesday. Game time is set for 9 pm on 1660 The Fan
