In its loss to Michigan on Saturday afternoon, the Hoosiers allowed six 3-pointers in the first half. Those 18 points accounted for over half of Michigan’s points (34) over the first 20 minutes of game action.
Indiana had trouble in the halfcourt defending on a few of them. But its costly nine turnovers in the first half also allowed Michigan to get out in transition for 3-point scores.

A bit too much overhelping really doomed the Hoosiers here.
