No. 23 Michigan moved to 13-0 at home with Wednesday’s 68-56 win over struggling Indiana.
The Wolverines were led by freshman guard Trey Burke, who poured in 18 points on nine shots. He was two-for-two from downtown and has now scored at least 13 points in eight of Michigan’s 10 conference games.
Tim Hardaway Jr. and Zack Novak each had 13 for Michigan, which has neither won nor lost consecutive games since back-to-back wins over Wisconsin and Northwestern on Jan. 8 and Jan. 11.
Indiana, which is ranked No. 20 in the AP Poll despite losing five of its last seven, was led by Jordan Hulls’ 18 points. That wasn’t nearly enough, though, as only one other Hoosier scored double-figures (Cody Zeller had 11 points).
The Wolverines are now 17-6 overall and 7-3 in the Big Ten, moving into a second-place tie with Wisconsin. At 7-2, Ohio State sits atop the conference standings. The Buckeyes, who beat Michigan last Sunday, comes to Ann Arbor later this month.
