Tracking the true freshmen: Michigan

Noah Vonleh scores four points and grabs three rebounds in the final minute to secure his ninth double-double of the season, while fellow freshman starter Stanford Robinson scores seven points.

The Indiana freshmen class continues to make an impact each game for the Hoosiers this season. With every game, AllHoosiers.com will chart the production of the IU freshmen.

Here's a look at how IU's freshmen class performed Sunday afternoon in a 63-52 win against Michigan at Assembly Hall.

Noah Vonleh: With under a minute left, Vonleh had recorded a somewhat mediocre game, with six rebounds off of three buckets with no free throw attempts and nine rebounds. But the final minute where he became the key to sealing the game may have been a bit of a confidence booster. During the game, the Hoosiers were able to get the ball inside to Vonleh much easier than Thursday night where he was swarmed by Nebraska's defense inside. He didn't have to be the hero Sunday, as Yogi Ferrell led the team with 27 points on 7-of-8 shooting beyond the 3-point line. But in the final minute, Vonleh rebounded a miss by Michigan ‘s Caris LeVert before LeVert fouled Ferrell and sent him to the free throw line. Ferrell hit the first, but missed the second, but Vonleh grabbed the miss and slammed it back home. The next time down, Evan Gordon missed a layup, but Vonleh trailed and laid it back in to clinch his ninth double-double of the season, a Big Ten-best, with 10 points and 12 rebounds.

Stanford Robinson: Robinson's first bucket of the game gave the Hoosiers a 10-7 lead off his 3-pointer, but quickly he was the only starter on the floor. Crean took off 80 percent of his starting lineup in a matter of minutes, leaving Robinson with Jeff Howard, Austin Etherington, Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Evan Gordon, and briefly the Hoosiers struggled. But for the rest of the game, surrounded by his fellow starters, Robinson put together another solid game, scoring seven points on 3-of-6 shooting from the floor to go along with a rebound and a steal. Although he got the start, he continues to play just barely more time than Gordon while complementing Ferrell in the backcourt. Sunday, he played 24 minutes to Gordon's 16.

Troy Williams: Williams scored just one point off a free throw in the second half, but he played an active role in IU's victory. The freshman forward pulled down four rebounds to go along with an assist and a steal in his 21 minutes of action for IU.

Devin Davis: Davis entered the game briefly for less than three minutes in the second half in replace of Hanner Mosquera-Perea with 10:46 left in the game. During his short stint, he recorded one rebound while drawing a personal foul.

Collin Hartman: Hartman did not receive any playing time.
