College Hoops Player of the Day for Sunday, March 10, 2013
Indiana scored the last six points of the game to capture the Big Ten championship with a 72-71 win over Michigan.
After Glenn Robinson III made one of two free throws to give the Wolverines a five-point lead with 1:03 to play, Indiana took advantage of two missed front ends of one-and-one free throws by Michigan - one each by Tim Hardaway Jr. and by Trey Burke - scoring on each of their final three trips down the floor.
The win gave the Hoosiers the outright regular season title in a hotly contested Big Ten, with a 14-4 record. With a win tonight against Northwestern, Michigan State can finish tied with Ohio State for second place at 13-5.
With the loss, Michigan fell to 12-6, tied with Wisconsin for fourth place.
Cody Zeller tallied a game-high 25 points to go with ten rebounds, four on the offensive end. Victor Oladipo also had a double-double with 14 points and 14 boards.
Zeller was 10-for-19 from the field and 5-for-8 from the foul line.
