BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Yogi Ferrell scored 27 points, hitting seven 3-pointers in eight tries, to lead unranked Indiana to a 63-52 upset of No. 10 Michigan on Sunday.
Indiana (14-8, 4-5 Big Ten) had lost three of four but led most of the way in improving to 12-2 at Assembly Hall. Noah Vonleh added 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Hoosiers, who shot 54 percent to the Wolverines' 40 percent.
Michigan (16-5, 8-1) produced a season-low point total as a 10-game winning streak came to an end. Derrick Walton Jr. scored 13 points and Caris LeVert had 12. They were the only Wolverines in double figures, as leading scorer Nik Stauskas was held to six points.
Ferrell, a point guard, was the primary defender on Michigan's small forward, and Stauskas missed 5 of 6 attempts, failing for the third time this season to score in double figures.
The Hoosiers may have reinvigorated their hopes for an at-large berth to the NCAA tournament by securing their second victory over a top-10 opponent.
The Wolverines are no strangers to coming up short in this series.
Dating to last season's run to the national title game, the Wolverines are 27-12 in their last 39 games - with three of those losses to the Hoosiers, who are now 24-8 against Michigan over the last 18 seasons.
The Wolverines' prolific offense was off from the start. Michigan had more turnovers (eight) than baskets (seven) in the first half and scored just six points on its final 11 possessions to trail 25-22 at intermission.
It took a few breaks to stay that close. Walton Jr. was fouled twice in the half shooting behind the arc and converted all six free throws. The Wolverines also pushed the ball effectively for transition opportunities, scoring eight fast-break points.
After Indiana's defense was slow to get back and allowed Zak Irvin a layup, Indiana coach Tom Crean used a timeout with 10:08 left in the half. Out of the stoppage, the Hoosiers scored on five of their next six possessions to grab a 22-18 edge.
Facing their fourth halftime deficit since November, the Wolverines never got over the hump.
Three free throws from Austin Etherington and a fast-break layup by Evan Gordon gave Indiana a 49-41 lead with 7:41 to play, causing John Beilein to call time out.
After Stauskas' free throws cut the deficit to 53-49 with 4:04 to play, the Hoosiers clamped down, getting two stops before another basket by Gordon pushed the lead to six. The Wolverines came up empty on their next two trips before Etherington's free throw made it a seven-point game.
Michigan was outrebounded 31-22 and shot just 3-of-13 from behind the arc.
