ANN ARBOR -
I t was always supposed to come down
to this: Michigan and Indiana for
the Big Ten championship. And what a
heartbreaker it was.
Trey Burke, always a step ahead, was
working in slow motion as he started the
ball up the court with 13.7 seconds on the
clock.
Burke had Cody Zeller beat with
the left hand, and
he nearly got to the
rim, but Zeller, fresh
off muscling in the
go-ahead basket on
the other end of the
court, got his tower-
ing7-footframethere
just in time. Burke
tried to correct, STEPHEN J.
looping a shot over NESBITT
Zeller's outstretched
arms. It bounced off
the far side of the rim and back out.
Jordan Morgan rose next, banking
a left-handed tip-back attempt off the
glass. The junior forward's shot met the
lip of the iron and rolled around a quar-
ter of the rim. Then, as fate tilted with it,
the ball rolled out.

HEARTBREAK AT HOME

MEN'S BASKETBALL
Michigan falls
inches short of
Big Ten title

Morgan's putback,
Michigan's three missed
free throws seal loss
By DANIEL WASSERMAN
Daily Sports Editor
With a Big Ten title literally hanging
in the balance, a tip-in off the fingertips
of redshirt junior forward Jordan Mor-
gan rolled around the length of the rim
before finally dropping out of the cyl-
inder, leaving a previously undefeated
home team heartbroken on senior night.
Sophomore point guard Trey Burke,
likely playing in Ann Arbor for the final
time, drove right
at Indiana's Cody MICHIGAN 71
Zeller with just INDIANA 72
under 10 seconds
remaining. After his layup rimmed out,
Morgan's put-back had a little too much
on it, and Indiana grabbed possession
with just a few ticks left, sealing a Hoo-
sier victory, 72-71.
"I thought the ball went in," Burke
said of Morgan's miss. "It looked like it
went all the way down and then came
back up. We were unlucky."
Added Michigan coach John Beilein:
"I just thought for sure that baby was
going in."
After the Wolverines had grabbed a
four-point lead with 1:10 to play, Michi-

gan proceeded to miss three of its next
four free throws, allowing the Hoosiers
to close the gap and eventually take the
lead after Zeller made a layup with 13
seconds remaining.
With the win, Indiana won sole pos-
session of the Big Ten Championship - a
title that could've been split four ways
with a Michigan win.
The two top-10 teams battled until
the final horn, just as expected. After
Michigan (12-6 Big Ten, 25-6 overall)
controlled much of the opening half and
took a three-point lead into halftime, No.
2 Indiana opened the second half on a7-2
run. But neither team could put together
any significant run or even come close
to pulling away. The game saw a total of
eight lead changes, with seven coming in
the second stanza.
BattlingIndianaguardVictorOladipo
for National Player of the Year, Burke
finished with 20 points - 16 in the sec-
ond half - while Oladipo registered 14
points and 13 rebounds.
The Hoosiers dominated the battle
on the boards, though, 53-30, including
24 offensive rebounds. Zeller scored a
game-high 25 points, and pulled down
10 of those rebounds.
"Somebody always seemed to be miss-
ing someone," Beilein said of his team's
struggle to box out. "The rebounding
was a huge, huge part of this game. It's a
shame when we defend so well and then

Scott, Michaeli
enter race for
CSG president

SOUNDS GOOD' BUSINESS

Pair runs as
independents,
expands election to
four tickets
By GIACOMO BOLOGNA
DailyStaffReporter
Another entrance into the
fray widens the race for Cen-
tral Student Government pres-
ident and vice president to four
duos, but the other three tick-
ets come from political par-
ties - youMICH, forUM and
momentUM.
LSA junior Scott Christopher,
the president of MPowered, and
LSA freshman Ethan Michaeli, a
CSG intern, announced Sunday
their bid for CSG president and
vice president as independent
candidates.
A relative newcomer to stu-
dent government, Christopher
became the inaugural chair of
the Entrepreneurship Commis-
sion when it was formed this
fall. He had been approached

by all three parties to discuss
entrepreneurship's role in CSG
next year, but said he wanted to
expand his role beyond entre-
preneurship while still main-
taining its mindset.
"Ethan and I both have the
entrepreneurial spirit ingrained
in us and the benefit of being an
entrepreneur is you get things
done very quickly," Christopher
said. "I think we've seen that
with (Parikh) this year - get-
ting a lot more done than people
thought he could as a student
body president."
Christopher and Michaeli
have numerous points of their
platform already worked out,
though they have yet to release
a formal version.
With University President
Mary Sue Coleman set to step
down in 2014, Christopher said
it's important that students'
opinions regarding the next
president are heard. He would
survey students on what quali-
ties they would like in a Uni-
versity president. Christopher
said he also supports having a

By DANIELLE

Daily StaffReporter
Democratic Sen. Carl Levin
announced over break that he
will not be running for re-elec-

tion in 2014.
Levin is the longest serving
Michigan senator - he will
end his term with 34 years in
the nation's highest legislative
body.
Levin said in a statement
that the decision - which had
been speculated at - was hard
for him because he enjoyed his
position, but thinks he will be
able to accomplish more in his
position without re-election

looming over his head.
"Our country is at a cross-
roads that will determine our
economic health and security
for decades to come," Levin
said. "(I) decided that I can
best serve my state and nation
by concentrating in the next
two years on the challenging
issues before us that I am in a
position to help address."
