Yogi’s 3s, leadership guide Hoosiers in win over No. 10 Michigan

BLOOMINGTON — Yogi Ferrell spent all of three minutes of game time on Indiana’s bench on Sunday.

The way he was playing, it’s surprising Tom Crean didn’t play his sophomore point guard more.

Ferrell made a career-high seven 3-pointers, two shy of the IU single-game record, and the Hoosiers defeated No. 10 Michigan 63-52.

“Once I hit the first couple, they all felt good,” Ferrell said. “Once I had an opening, I wasn’t really going to force it, but I was going to let them fly.”

It was the first Big Ten loss of the season for the Wolverines (16-5, 8-1), who had won 10 straight coming in to Sunday’s game.

But Michigan hasn’t had much success at Assembly Hall, where they’ve now won just once in the last 17 games.

Ferrell scored 27 points, three shy of his career high. He was 7 of 8 on threes, 8 of 10 from the field overall and 4 of 6 at the free throw line as the Hoosiers (14-8, 4-5) bounced back from Thursday’s loss at Nebraska.

“When Yogi gets in a rhythm, there’s no stopping him,” said IU center Noah Vonleh

“We had no answers for Yogi,” Beilein said.

Ferrell scored the game’s first points — on a 3-pointer, of course — and broke the last two of the five ties in the game. A 3-pointer by Derrick Walton Jr. tied the score at 29-29 with 16:41 to play. But after a missed layup by Stanford Robinson, Troy Williams rebounded the ball for Indiana and fed Ferrell for his fifth 3-pointer. The Wolverines didn’t get closer than three points the rest of the way.

Ferrell’s offense wasn’t the only part of his game worth noting Sunday. His defense helped hold Nik Stauskas, Michigan’s leading scorer on the season (18.4 ppg), to six points on 1-of-6 shooting.

“Basically trying to limit his touches, really,” Ferrell said. “Didn’t want him to get the ball one-on-one.”

“Yogi Ferrell is playing at an extremely high level,” Crean said. “The approach that he takes to it, the leadership that he’s displaying over the past couple weeks, the improvement’s been some of the best I’ve been around. If he continues to keep that up, [the] sky’s the limit for him.

“I wouldn’t call him a point guard, I would call him a lead guard. Because when you’re capable of doing the things he can do, on both ends of the court, and you’re leading your team, you’re a lead guard.”

Vonleh added 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Hoosiers, who led 25-22 at halftime despite not attempting a free throw. IU didn’t go to the line until there was 13:36 left to play.

Walton led Michigan with 13 points, Caris LeVert scored 12 and Jordan Morgan had five points and 10 rebounds.

“I didn’t think we were going to go undefeated [in Big Ten play],” said Michigan coach John Beilein. “In the long run, we just have to grow from it and get better.”

MICHIGAN (52) — Robinson III 4-9 1-2 9, Morgan 2-3 1-5 5, Walton Jr. 3-6 6-6 13,  Stauskas 1-6 4-4 6, LeVert 5-13 1-1 12, Albrecht 0-1 0-0 0,  Horford 0-1 0-0 0, Irvin 3-6 0-0 7. Totals 18-45 13-18 52.
