Wolverines claim road victory at Indiana
Written by Matt Pargoff   

Winning on the road hasn’t exactly been the hallmark of the current Michigan team. In fact, prior to Sunday afternoon, they hadn’t claimed a single victory on an opponent’s home court. With two-thirds of the remaining regular season schedule consisting of road games, the Maize and Blue took a big step in proving they were capable though, defeating Indiana 75-63.

Never trailing in the contest, the Wolverines jumped ahead by a double-digit margin in the first half, maintaining the edge despite going cold shooting in the second.

Derrick Walton Jr. continued his recent success by hitting the 20-point mark for the fifth straight game, this time contributing 25 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Moritz Wagner showed up with a double-double, scoring 11 while pulling down 10 rebounds, while D.J. Wilson’s 10 points was matched by a strong defensive effort that included three steals and three blocked shots.

Improving to 16-9 on the season, the Wolverines will have the opportunity to improve their resume significantly on Thursday evening, playing host to top-10 ranked Wisconsin. The Badgers (21-4) defeated Michigan 68-64 last month in Madison.

The rematch at Crisler Center will take place at 7 p.m. eastern with television coverage provided by ESPN.
