|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.
