ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Kyle Hornsby had 17 points,

hitting all five shots from 3-point range, and Jeffrey Newton

and Jarrad Odle also tallied 17 as No. 24 Indiana posted a 75-55

rout of Michigan in a Big Ten Conference matchup Sunday.

The victory moved Indiana into a first-place tie atop the Big

Ten standings with Ohio State.

Hornsby nailed his fifth 3-pointer with 7:26 to play as the

Hoosiers (17-8, 9-3 Big Ten) effectively secured the victory,

taking a commanding 60-42 lead.

Newton scored five points during Indiana's 13-2 run early in the

first half. Dane Fife, a former Michigan High School Player of

the Year, capped the burst, making a basket from beyond the arc

and opening a 21-10 advantage with 8:52 to go until halftime.

Chris Young led the Wolverines (10-14, 5-8) with 18 points, but

Michigan never reduced the deficit to fewer than seven points

and suffered a third straight defeat.

Jared Jeffries, Indiana's leading scorer, returned to the lineup

after missing Wednesday's game with Wisconsin due to a sprained

ankle. He contributed four points, making 2-of-3 from the field,

and a pair of steals in just 18 minutes of action.
