THREE KEYS TO THE GAME (will be updated)
1. Michigan from three, Indiana from three. Michigan made 11-of-17 from three on the day while Indiana converted on just 5-of-19. At one point the Hoosiers were just 2-of-13 before some late makes by Parker Stewart. The Wolverines were effective at breaking down IU off the dribble to create open looks, and they also passed effectively out of the paint when Indiana double-teamed. Thursday hero Rob Phinisee was 0-of-3 from long range, as was Trey Galloway.
2. Starting five not getting it done. Indiana wasn’t good defensively throughout the game, but Michigan was especially productive against Indiana’s starting five. The Wolverines outscored IU 14-6 to open the second half after outscoring the Hoosiers 17-9 to open the game.
3. Dickinson the difference maker. IU had no answers for Michigan big man Hunter Dickinson, who scored 25 points, including 18 in the second half. The 7-foot-1 Dickinson was 9-of-12 from the field including 3-of-4 from three. He was effective on the block and popping out to the arc on ball screens. Dickinson also had a hand in Trayce Jackson-Davis and Race Thompson going just 10-of-24 from the field.
