No. 12 Indiana holds off 16th-ranked Wolverines

(Continued)

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. —

Instead, Jones broke the tie with two free throws, then hit a 15-foot jumper with 25 seconds left to give the Hoosiers a 72-68 lead.

Michigan finally ended its scoring drought with a 3 from Stu Douglass, then fouled Watford on the ensuing inbounds pass.

"I feel like I got to the free throw line a lot tonight and that helped me out in the second half," Watford said.

After missing the first, Watford hit the second, and had to watch nervously as Zack Novak's desperation heave headed toward the basket. It never had a chance.

"The bottom line is this team gritted it out again," Crean said. "They have won 14 games 14 different ways with a lot of room for improvement, and I'm excited about them."
