No. 2 MI stays unbeaten, beats No

No. 2 MI stays unbeaten, beats No”

After the No. 21 Hoosiers' 74-63 loss to No. 2 MI at Crisler Arena on Sunday, Miller pointed to offensive execution and defensive will, and he came right up to the edge of questioning his players' manhood.

The Wolverines shut down three offenses who finished in the top-40 nationally during this nine-game stint as well, including Nebraska (finished No. 25 nationally averaging 456.2 yards per game, while U-M held it to 132), Western Michigan (ended at No. 35 in the country with 436.8 yards per game, but U-M held it to 208) and Wisconsin (concluded at No. 36 accumulating 431.1 yards per outing, while the Wolverines limited it to 283). "We take a punch, maybe a few too many and then get up off the ground".

Morgan went an uncharacteristic 4 of 12 from the field himself in the first half, while Langford contributed only two field goals. 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. "Now that's not going to work for us down the road". "They have a lot of good talent on their team and we need to make sure they don't get open shots".

IN fell to 12-3 overall and 3-1 in Big Ten play.

In each of IU's last eight wins, the Hoosiers have come back from a deficit of at least five points.

With some better performances from its best players (Langford and Morgan shot a combined 33 percent in the first half) and a renewed intensity on defense, in may yet make this a game.

The Hoosiers were missing freshmen Rob Phinisee, Jake Forrester, Race Thompson and Jerome Hunter for Sunday's game, along with junior forward De'Ron Davis, who informed Miller after warm-ups he could not play due to an ankle injury.

"I just have to be smarter", Morgan said. It'll probably be low scoring, given how MI grinds their opponents down, and IN will have to play at a level that it has yet to hit if it wants to topple the Wolverines.

The 11th highest scoring duo in the country, Romeo Langford and Juwan Morgan had two fouls each before the under 16 minute media timeout, putting the Hoosiers in a hole early on. We're not tough enough starting games.
