BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -

The University of Michigan basketball team suffered its first conference loss against Indiana Sunday afternoon, falling to 8-1 on the season. Though the loss snapped their 10-game winning streak, the Wolverines remain in first place in the Big Ten, currently holding the head-to-head tiebreak over in-state rival Michigan State.

Indiana guard Yogi Ferrell, the Big Ten leader in points per game, led the charge with 27 points on seven for eight three-point shooting. Noah Vonleh was the only other Hoosier in double digits, with 10 points.

Michigan struggled to find an offensive rhythm, as Ferrell hounded star guard Nik Stuaskas and held him to six points on just one made field goal.

Freshman point guard Derrick Walton, Jr. led Michigan with 13 points on three of six shooting. Caris LeVert added 12 points, but shot just five for 13 from the field.

Senior Jordan Morgan led the team with 10 rebounds and two blocked shots.

Michigan returns to the Crisler Center Wednesday to battle Nebraska.
