THREE KEYS TO THE GAME
1. Hoosiers shut out Michigan in final five minutes. Michigan took a 61-58 lead with 5:12 remaining but never scored again as Indiana got stops on the Wolverines’ last eight possessions of the game to win it. Michigan missed seven straight shots and had a turnover in that span.
2. IU overcomes slow start on the road. Indiana trailed by 11 in the first half but kept battling back. While their defense closed strong, Michigan gashed the Hoosiers early on, scoring 21 points in the first 7:27 of the game. But UM only scored 24 for the entire second half, as they shot just 32 percent from the field and had 7 turnovers after the break.
3. Jackson-Davis and Hood-Schifino enough. Indiana’s Trayce Jackson-Davis and Jalen Hood-Schifino scored 49 of Indiana’s 62 points, and made 19 of their 23 field goals. The rest of the team made just 4-of-15 shots from the field, and no one else had more than four points. Hood-Schifino made two free throws to give IU a lead with 2:58 left, and Jackson-Davis had a key block during the span.
