Penn’s 3 helps IN women beat No. 15 Michigan State

No. 2 Michigan holds on to take down No. 21 Indiana

Our experts are split between whether Michigan or Michigan State will win the Big Ten, but there's a clear-cut top tier between the Wolverines and Spartans.

When Morgan and Langford were in foul trouble early in the first half, the Wolverines took advantage and gained control of the game for good.

On the other end, IN only turned the ball over five times, but most of those giveaways led to easy Wolverines baskets, and MI has a 11-2 advantage IN points off turnovers.

MI was led by teammates Chase Matthews and Jordan Poole, who each scored 18 points, as the Wolverines shot 50 percent from the field.

Jordan Poole also finished with 18 points for the Wolverines (15-0, 4-0 Big Ten), who are a win away from matching the school's best start.

Miller said all three players entered the game ready to play and did their part for the team, but he wished they made a larger offensive imprint. "We rarely talk about our record".

The Big Ten may boil down to which team from the state of MI will have the most success this season. He has also proven to be a rugged defender who could see some time guarding Langford and IN senior Juwan Morgan, who is averaging 16.1 points per game.

Indiana: The Hoosiers' top two players, Langford and Morgan, have to learn how to avoid getting into foul trouble due to their value to the team.

MI jumped out to a 23-9 lead in the game and led 44-29 at halftime. Up next for the Wolverines is a awful IL team.

"The beginning of the game, we're not tough enough", Miller said. "We take a punch, maybe a few too many, and then we sort of get off the ground and get going".

"I don't think we've been as consistent as we need to be to get where we want to go", Morgan said.

Both senior forward Juwan Morgan and freshman guard Romeo Langford were each whistled for two fouls during the first 3:59 of the game, relegating both of them to a spot on IU's bench at the Crisler Center. IN will have more depth when center De'Ron Davis and guard Rob Phinisee return from injuries.
