Indiana Basketball: Keys for a road upset against MI in 2018-19

Indiana Basketball: Keys for a road upset against MI in 2018-19

Above all others, though, the best Big Ten game of this weekend might come in Ann Arbor as in basketball travels on the road to take on MI.

The Indiana Hoosiers are going to have to have their best game of the year if they hope to compete with MI, let alone take down the Wolverines in their own home.

Langford (17 points and 6 rebounds) and Morgan (25 points and 8 rebounds), the only two players in double-figures for the Hoosiers, showed a great deal of toughness keeping in in the game for most of the second half.

That is the pertinent question entering Sunday afternoon's Big Ten showdown between No. 21 IN and No. 2 MI IN Ann Arbor, Mich.

"We're just anxious about getting better", Poole said.

The Michigan sharpshooting duo of senior guard Charles Matthews and sophomore guard Jordan Poole almost outscored IU in the first half, as the pair scored 28 points while IU had 29 at the break.

The Hoosiers (12-3, 3-1) had won seven straight since losing at Duke and their chances to extend the streak were hurt because their stars were forced to sit a lot.

Oddly enough, the Michigan Wolverines are just one more win away from tying the best start in school history.

"We're just anxious about getting better", Poole said via The AP.

MI led 44-29 at halftime and didn't have much trouble keeping a comfortable cushion after halftime in part because Morgan picked up his third and fourth fouls. The Hoosiers return to action on Friday night at Maryland. Up next for the Wolverines is a awful IL team.

Morgan also got into early foul trouble and when both he and Langford were on the bench the Wolverines went on a 12-3 run in less than three minutes.

With that said, though, it would take an incredibly impressive performance by IN to pull out the upset win on the road. IN will have more depth when center De'Ron Davis and guard Rob Phinisee return from injuries.

MI maintained healthy advantages in points in the paint, 42-34, points off turnovers, 12-4, and bench scoring, 10-0, over the 40-minute contest.

"We just miss his presence out on the floor", Langford said of Phinisee.
