Setting the scene from Michigan

Indiana aims for its first Big Ten road win of the season in about an hour at Michigan.

The Hoosiers are 0-6 in conference games away from Assembly Hall. Leading scorer Christian Watford, who suffered a broken left hand Jan. 30 at Michigan State, did take part in the pregame drills. IU coach Tom Crean said last week there was a very remote chance Watford would be ready to return for today’s game.

The Wolverines have won four of five. IU assistant coach Steve McClain and guard Jordan Hulls pointed to the play of forward Jordan Morgan (9.2 points, 5.6 rebounds) as a reason the Michigan is playing better as of late.

Hulls and McClain stressed defense, pointing out Michigan’s ability to shoot from the outside. IU won the first meeting, 80-61, on Jan. 15. IU held the Wolverines to 7 of 24 from three-point territory (29.2 percent) in the earlier contest.
