Michigan has had road troubles all season. Combine that with the recent struggles the program has faced at Assembly Hall, it could've been a recipe for disaster once more.
However, the Wolverines (16-9, 6-6 Big Ten) headed into Sunday's game desperate for a road win and desperate for some positive momentum.
It did just that with an impressive 75-63 victory over the Hoosiers.
Derrick Walton Jr., the catalyst of this teams success as of late, proved once more he is, without a doubt, the go-to guy on the squad. Walton finished the game leading all scorers with 25 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. D.J. Wilson, who had a strong second half, finished the game with 13 points and proved to be a handful for the Hoosier defense.
After taking a 10 point lead into the half, the Wolverines never looked back thanks to a struggling Hoosier offense that kept hurting its chances by turning the ball over.
The Wolverines return to the friendly confines of the Crisler Center on Thursday against Wisconsin, tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
