The early foul trouble Langford and Morgan became entangled in came at an inopportune time for IU, not only because of the opponent, but also because of IU's injury situation.

On the other end, IN only turned the ball over five times, but most of those giveaways led to easy Wolverines baskets, and MI has a 11-2 advantage IN points off turnovers.

"The beginning of the game, we're not tough enough", Miller said.

"We've been coming back and winning close games", he said.

All of that being said, the players aren't anxious about the flawless record as much as they do about getting better with each and every game.

"We set the tone and we got their two big guys in foul trouble", MI coach John Beilein said. IN will have more depth when center De'Ron Davis and guard Rob Phinisee return from injuries.

"I just have to be smarter", Morgan said. They made a remarkable 13 of 16 shots and 4 of 6 beyond the 3-point line in the game's first 10 minutes, opening up a commanding lead that they maintain at halftime.
