Nothing Goes Right

Tommy Amaker's first trip to Assembly Hall was a nightmare, as the Indiana Hoosiers hurried end to end to defeat Michigan, 63-49.

The game was tied, once, at at 9-9. From there everything pretty much fell apart for the Wolverines. It was 32-18 (yes, 18) at the half. And the second half ws just as bad. Michigan closed to 8 once, 42-34 at the 11 minute mark. But by the 8:25 mark it was 48-34 and Indiana coasted again from there.

It is hard to analyze a game this, well, bad. Michigan looked tentative throughout, and never seemed to be able to get open against the Indiana defense.

Freshman point guard Daniel Horton was the only Wolverine who had a a fairly good game, leading Michigan with 16 points.

The Wolverines fall to 7-3 in the Big Ten and 14-9 overall.

Michigan returns home to Crisler Arena against OSU (4-6, 11,10) Saturday. But the rest of the Big Ten schdule is tough, with two games remaining against league-leading Purdue, one (away) against Wisconsin (7-3, 17-5), and one (again away) against Illinois (6-3, 16-4) ... the only 'easy' game left is at Penn State (0-8, 5-14).
