Indiana slips past Michigan with eyes on Big Dance

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Marco Killingsworth scored 19 points and
Robert Vaden and Roderick Wilmont added 13 apiece Saturday to rally
Indiana to a 69-67 Big Ten victory over Michigan.

The win assured the Hoosiers (17-10, 9-7) a first-round bye in
the Big Ten tournament and was Indiana's 10th consecutive win over
Michigan (18-9, 8-8). The Wolverines finished the regular season
losing six of their last eight games.

Daniel Horton scored 34 points and Graham Brown added 10 for the
Wolverines.

Michigan scored nine of the first 11 points of the second half
to open up a 39-29 lead with 16:11 remaining. Indiana followed with
a 14-3 run to go in front for the first time, 43-42, with 11:41
left.

The Hoosiers increased the margin to six points, but Dion Harris
returned the lead to Michigan on his 3-pointer with 7:26 left.

The teams traded the lead twice before Earl Calloway split a
pair of free throws to put Indiana up 65-64 with 30.9 seconds left.
Wilmont sealed the win with four free throws in the final 2
seconds.

It was the final regular-season game for Indiana head coach Mike
Davis, who earlier announced his resignation effective the end of
the season.
