Pregame:
Michigan lined up for the Star-Spangled Banner and didn't even realize that it was sung when they were in the locker room.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 2, 2014
Key to victory for UM: transition defense off makes and misses. IU has major trouble scoring against a set defense— Josh Bartelstein (@Jbart20) February 2, 2014
Some empty seats in the upper deck of Assembly Hall, not quite the fever pitch of last season's College Gameday extravaganza.— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) February 2, 2014
First time ever in the stands at Assembly Hall .. Thanks to @TomCrean for helping my family get into the game..Class! pic.twitter.com/w7VcEFjSoC— Dan Dakich (@dandakich) February 2, 2014

First Half:
Have to like the putback by Morgan there...99 times out of 100 he passes that out of the post after a block.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 2, 2014
Different Jordan Morgan right now. That's a turnover last season. He's been terrific of late.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 2, 2014
Wonderful job of setting up that cut by Stauskas so he could finally get a step on Ferrell. Another improved part of his game this year.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 2, 2014
Looks like he's trying to set IU up to bite early on here. RT @Jbart20: Nik has to back cut them to death today— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 2, 2014

Walton is doing a really nice job defensively staying with Yogi.— Bry Mac (@Bry_Mac) February 2, 2014
Michigan was 1 of 9 from the floor before that slam, still just a 1-point game.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 2, 2014
@JustJMo is just playing terrific basketball, UM in very good shape with their poor shooting— Josh Bartelstein (@Jbart20) February 2, 2014
Not something you see often in Bloomington: FT's -- Visitor 8 of 8, Home 0 of 0— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 2, 2014
Indiana would be really, really bad without Yogi.— Alex Prosperi (@AlexProsperi) February 2, 2014
Let's all sit around a campfire and sing songs about Jordan Morgan's rebounding today.— Scott Bell (@sbell021) February 2, 2014
Eight rebounds already for Morgan. His season-high is 9.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 2, 2014
Look for some major offensive adjustments at halftime. Stauskas will be getting the ball more in the second half.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 2, 2014
The Wolverines were bound to have a bad shooting day at some point, right?— Andy Reid (@AReid_Wolverine) February 2, 2014
Michigan hasn't played this poorly offensively for a long time, only trail by two late in the first half though.— Dylan Burkhardt (@umhoops) February 2, 2014
Yogi Ferrell is 4/5 on threes and Indiana is still scoring exactly one point per possession. Given nature of those shots, D has been good.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 2, 2014
Second Half:
Ferrell doing a great job on Stauskas, but interesting to see how Michigan adjusts in the second half.— Dylan Burkhardt (@umhoops) February 2, 2014
Interesting to see if IU leaves Ferrell on Nik, that's exhausting denying him the ball and he is their only offense, they can't wear him out— Josh Bartelstein (@Jbart20) February 2, 2014
The lowest eFG% Michigan has posted this year was 35.2% vs. Charlotte. U-M is at 35.0% at halftime against Indiana.— Drew Hallett (@DrewCHallett) February 2, 2014
This is just a different Jordan Morgan. He's doing some of the things that McGary does...big help if he can continue it.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 2, 2014
Caris LeVert came to play in the second half.— Joe Stapleton (@joe_stapes) February 2, 2014
Still only 10 points from Stauskas+Robinson+LeVert. They average a combined 44 points. #numbers— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 2, 2014
Yogi hasn't shot a 2-pointer yet. 5-for-6 from deep and they're not exactly taking that shot away.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 2, 2014
@detnewsRodBeard With Yogi, can't afford any Boo-Boos.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) February 2, 2014
Get the ball in Nik's hands. Whatever it takes. Have him bring it up. Iso him.— Alex Prosperi (@AlexProsperi) February 2, 2014
This is the seventh time Yogi Ferrell has scored 20 or more points in a game this season. IU is 5-1 in the other six.— Terry Hutchens (@FoxSportsHutch) February 2, 2014
Michigan's top two scorers are true freshmen Derrick Walton and Zak Irvin. The duo has more than half (20) of Michigan's 36 points so far.— Scott Bell (@sbell021) February 2, 2014
Offense is coming around for Michigan, but they just need some stops.— Rod Beard (@detnewsRodBeard) February 2, 2014
Tom Crean slapping the floor. His face matches his tie (large and red).— Brendan F. Quinn (@BFQuinn) February 2, 2014
Statsheet looks like it should be halftime. Partly because Michigan is playing it's slowest pace of the season. Only 33 FGAs.— Neal Rothschild (@nrothschild3) February 2, 2014
LeVert did a fantastic job of blocking the passing lane to Ferrell when Indiana tried to break the 1-3-1.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 2, 2014
One of those days for Stauskas, just can't get it to drop.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 2, 2014
Worst game of the year for U-M, and not sure there's a close second. 55-49 IU at 1:44.— Chris Balas (@Balas_Wolverine) February 2, 2014
Free throw shooting killing us again vs. IU. Familiar.— Jim Weber (@JimMWeber) February 2, 2014
As close to a 10-second call as you'll see. pic.twitter.com/HayeZUTvyt— World of Isaac (@WorldofIsaac) February 2, 2014
Postgame:
Michigan never ever ever ever plays well in that building. Ever.— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 2, 2014
I give up trying to make sense of the Big Ten.— Nicole Auerbach (@NicoleAuerbach) February 2, 2014
Indiana made every big play down the stretch. Michigan was going to lose a road game, but smothering of Stauskas was startling.— Bob Wojnowski (@bobwojnowski) February 2, 2014
Well, the Big Ten continues to eat itself alive.— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) February 2, 2014
Everyone gets a turn through the #B1G wheat thresher. Michigan's turn today, with Indiana handing Wolverines first league loss.— Brian Hamilton (@BrianHamiltonSI) February 2, 2014
Well, at least Puppy Bowl X is here.— Chantel Jennings (@ChantelJennings) February 2, 2014
Thinkin Yogi Ferrell's performance today was the best I've seen all year in the Big 10..willed his team to Victory..— Dan Dakich (@dandakich) February 2, 2014
Tough to get a win at Assembly hall. Gotta learn from this game and improve. In to Nebraska! #GoBlue— Maize Rage (@UMMaizeRage) February 2, 2014
I feel nothing about the result of that game.— Andrew Beilein (@AndrewBeilein) February 2, 2014
Michigan played poorly on the road and lost a game. Things like this happen. The Wolverines are 8-1 and in 1st place at B1G midway point.— Scott Bell (@sbell021) February 2, 2014
Support your team regardless of the outcome #GoBlue— Kevin Koger (@KogerNotKroger) February 2, 2014
Tough lost for Michigan Basketball today but they will bounce back from this lost still 8-1 tried for Big ten Lead #GoBlue— D.Money (@danny61114393) February 2, 2014
