(AP) BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Rachel Sheffer scored 19 points Thursday, helping No. 23 Michigan get back on track with a 61-43 victory over cold-shooting Indiana.

Kate Thompson added 13 points, and Nya Jordan had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Wolverines (16-3, 5-1 Big Ten), who had their 10-game winning streak snapped in a loss to No. 8 Penn State on Monday.

Aulani Sinclair led the Hoosiers (10-9, 1-5) with 14 points, and Nicole Bell chipped in 11 off the bench. Indiana shot just 26 percent from the field.

The Hoosiers kept the game close until midway through the first half, when Michigan used an 11-2 run to take control en route to a 37-24 halftime lead. The Wolverines kept it up in the second half, leading by as many as 24.

Despite the loss, Indiana remained the only Big Ten team not to allow an opponent to score 70 points this season.
