It’s been home sweet home for the No. 22 Michigan basketball team as it improved to 13-0 in Crisler Arena Wednesday.
Freshman guard Trey Burke and the Wolverines (17-6, 7-3 Big Ten) got some revenge against No. 20 Indiana with a 68-56 win that was led by Burke’s 18 points, four rebounds and four assists.
“This is Michigan, we want to protect our home court,” said sophomore forward Jordan Morgan.
With the win U of M improves its home winning streak to 14 dating back to last season when the streak started with a 70-63 win over Michigan State on March 5.
During this winning streak the Wolverines have beaten opponents by an average of 12.4 points per game.
But where U of M has found success at home, it has struggled to find anything on the road.
The Wolverines are 1-5 in true road games this season, losing by an average of 9.2 points per game on the road.
“We have eight games left, five on the road,” said head coach Jon Beilein. “Great teams win on the road.”
Its next game is Sunday on the road against the rival Spartans who will be looking for a win after an embarrassing 41 point effort in a loss against Illinois and currently riding a three game losing streak against U of M.
