BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Mackenzie Holmes scored 27 points and No. 2 Indiana forced 21 turnovers to beat No. 12 Michigan 68-52 on Thursday night for its ninth victory over a ranked team this season.

Indiana (25-1, 15-1 Big Ten) went scoreless for the first six minutes of the fourth quarter, but an 11-0 run by Michigan only cut the deficit to 11 and the Hoosiers then comfortably closed out the game.

Emily Kiser led the Wolverines (20-6, 10-5) with 12 points, while Jordan Hobbs and Leigha Brown each added nine.

Chloe Moore-McNeil had 13 points for Indiana, including four 3-pointers.

Indiana’s defense held Michigan to 40% shooting from the field, including 3 for 12 from 3-point range, and created 24 points off Wolverines turnovers.

Indiana used multiple double-digit runs to build a 14-point halftime lead, including a 12-0 spurt to start the second quarter. After the Wolverines shaved the deficit to three, Grace Berger scored six points to help the Hoosiers extend their advantage to 34-19.

The Hoosiers ended the half with four straight points on free throws as frustrations boiled over for the Wolverines. Maddie Nolan was called for a technical foul following a fast-break layup and blew kisses to a jeering Indiana crowd.

Another Michigan foul in the last second of the period let Indiana extend its lead further.
