The University of Michigan women's basketball team (14-11, 6-8 B1G) hosts Indiana (14-11, 4-10 B1G) in its penultimate home game on Wednesday (Feb. 18) at Crisler Center. Tip is set for 7 p.m.

• The Wolverines have won nine straight against the Hoosiers, with five of those wins coming in the last two seasons. IU leads the all-time series against U-M, 42-25.

• Michigan's next three opponents, Indiana, Minnesota and Purdue, are all first-time foes for the Wolverines this season. U-M's last four games -- Michigan State, Rutgers, Ohio State and Northwestern -- all featured second-time opponents. The Wolverines' final contest of the year, at Illinois on Feb. 28, is against a team U-M has already faced.

• Michigan has lost its last three games, just the second three-game skid ever under third-year head coach Kim Barnes Arico. U-M dropped three straight in her first season (2012-13), coming to Iowa, at Minnesota and at Michigan State from Jan. 27-Feb. 4. After that three-game losing streak, Michigan reeled off three straight wins.
