Michigan Basketball demolished the visiting Indiana Hoosiers on Thursday night at home by a score of 90-60, showing another glimpse of what could be when the team is firing on all cylinders.

The Wolverines (14-7, 4-4 B1G) were led by a scoring attack that saw six players notch double digits in points. The 30-point win is the second-highest over Indiana (14-7, 4-4 B1G) with the other being a 48-point victory during the 1998 season.

Derrick Walton Jr. led the team with 21 points and all five starters were in double digits with Duncan Robinson chiming in with 13 off the bench.

As a team, Michigan shot 63 percent from the field and stormed out to an 18-4 lead after Indiana scored the first four points of the game. They would never look back.

Michigan led by as much as 37 in the second half en route to their 90-60 win.

Next up for the Wolverines is an in-state showdown with the struggling Michigan State Spartans in East Lansing. A loss for either team would be devastating to their postseason chances, though Michigan appears to finally be working itself out of a recent slump.

Sunday’s game from the Breslin Center in East Lansing tips at 1 p.m. ET and will be broadcast via CBS.
