Michigan bounces back with 69-45 win vs. Indiana

Manny Harris scored 17 of his 21 points in the second half and DeShawn Sims had 20 points and eight rebounds, leading Michigan to a 69-45 win over Indiana on Thursday night. The Wolverines (9-7, 3-2 Big Ten) needed the victory after blowing a 17-point lead in their previous game against Northwestern and before hosting No. 15 Connecticut on Sunday. Christian Watford scored 16 for the Hoosiers (7-9, 1-3) but didn't get much help. No other Indiana player scored more than seven points. Indiana's young team was competitive for most of the game and was within 48-43 with 5:54 remaining before Michigan finished the game on a 19-2 run. Harris had 17 of the Wolverines' 23 points during one dominant stretch in the second half. (Copyright 2010 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
