TheWolverine - Michigan Basketball On The Cusp Of Something Special After Win At Indiana
Another Big Ten game, another comfortable win, more praise …
It’s become an all-too-familiar scenario in this impressive run for Michigan basketball, one that continued with a 73-57 win at Indiana.
Forget that this Hoosiers team is a shell of the program once considered a blueblood, or that the home court advantage was negated by the no-fan rule. Michigan dominated IU by playing its C+/B- game on a day’s rest, moving the Wolverines a game closer to a Big Ten title.
They can clinch with a victory over Illinois, which stands 14-4 with games at Michigan and Ohio State next week to end the year. U-M is 13-1 and will play three more games, finishing with three less than the Illini due to a COVID pause, and head coach Brad Underwood seemed to add a bit of fuel after his team’s 74-69 road win at Wisconsin Saturday.
