Indiana 70, Michigan 63
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP)—Robert Vaden had a career-high 18 points and Indiana scored eight straight points in the closing minutes in a 70-63 win over Michigan on Sunday.
The Hoosiers (12-11, 7-5 Big Ten) had lost four of its last six games, all on the road.
Dion Harris scored 15 points for the slumping Wolverines (12-15, 3-10). Michigan has lost 10 games in a row, its longest losing streak since dropping 11 straight during the 1981-82 season.
The Wolverines had a chance to end their skid, leading 58-57 with 4:31 left on Harris’ three-point play. But Indiana went on an 8-0 run—forcing three turnovers—then made enough free throws to seal the victory.
Indiana connected on 14-of-23 3-pointers—including a string of seven straight in the first half. Marshall Strickland scored 14 points, reserve A.J. Ratliff had 11 and D.J. White added 10 points for the Hoosiers.
Courtney Sims and Ron Coleman each scored 12 for the Wolverines.
Before the game, Michigan announced that Daniel Horton was suspended for the rest of the season. The standout point guard was indefinitely suspended on Jan. 25 after he was charged with domestic violence and on Feb. 14, he pleaded guilty.
Indiana’s Bracey Wright had seven points on 1-of-8 shooting after missing the previous three games with a sprained ankle.
The Hoosiers led by eight midway through the first half, but trailed 31-30 at halftime—despite its outside shooting. They made 9-of-14 3-pointers and missed 9-of-10 inside the arc.
Michigan retired Glen Rice’s No. 41 jersey at halftime.
