Michigan runs away from IU at the end

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Manny Harris scored 17 of his 21 points in the last 11:03 of Thursday’s game, sparking a 21-2 run that turned a relatively close game to a 69-45 Michigan route.

Senior center DeShawn Sims also scored 20 points in the Michigan victory.

“Two of the better players in the country and two of the very best players in this league were too much for us to handle,” Indiana coach Crean said. “… It all came unglued because we couldn’t keep those guys from doing what they do best, which is get to the basket.”

The Hoosiers weren’t good offensively, either, shooting 36.5 percent (19-for-52) for the game, including 1-for-15 from beyond the 3-point arc. They committed 19 turnovers and made just six of 12 free throws.

Indiana was within four points at the 10:34 mark of the second half and five points with 6:32 before things got ugly.

“We kind of came unglued at the end after playing a very, very strong game for so long and never letting ourselves get rattled,” Crean said. “But we did get rattled at the end and it was because of the abilities of Manny Harris and DeShawn Sims.”

Indiana at Michigan: Discuss it here

Michigan at IU women

6-foot-6 Krista Phillips got the in-bounds pass and had her point-blank layup roll off the front of the rim as time expired, and Indiana escapes with the victory. Hope Elam ties a career high with 24 points for IU and also grabs 10 rebounds. HOOSIERS 62, WOLVERINES 60

:1.8: IU got the stop and Whitney Lindsay hit 1-of-2 free throws. The ball was deflected out of bounds by IU and Michigan has it under their goal with 1.8 to play. HOOSIERS 62, WOLVERINES 60

:41.6: After Michigan took the lead, Jori Davis scores on a scoop to the hoop to give Indiana the lead back, now Hoosiers need a stop. HOOSIERS 61, WOLVERINES 60

3:24: Michigan took its first lead of the game with 5:32 to play. Reynolds and Elam traded 3s, then Jori Davis was fouled on a 3, making just one free throw to tie the game. Elam was just fouled on a 3 and will have free throws when we return. HOOSIERS 58, WOLVERINES 58

7:25: A 10-0 Michigan run has cut the margin to just one, highlighted by back-to-back 3s by Carmen Reynolds, a 40 percent 3-point shooter on the season. HOOSIERS 54, WOLVERINES 53

11:33: Back-to-back jumpers by Hope Elam got IU going again. Add in a 3 by Jamie Braun and Indiana is back in control for the moment. HOOSIERS 52, WOLVERINES 43

15:58: Michigan gaining some traction to start the second half. Elam already has her third foul, but after Michigan got within 3, Whitney Lindsay hit a big 3-pointer to stem the tide. HOOSIERS 44, WOLVERINES 40

The best shooting half Indiana has had since before Christmas at 44.4 percent, including 5-of-11 on 3-pointers. Michigan is shooting just 36.7 percent, but has hit 9-of-10 free throws to stay close. Hope Elam has 15 points and Jamie Braun 13, while Jori Davis has only two. Jori Davis, Danilsa Andujar and Elam all have two fouls, so that could be something to watch in the second half. HOOSIERS 39, WOLVERINES 34
