(Ann Arbor, MI) - The Indiana Hoosiers won the Big-Ten Championship outright for the first time in 20 years after beating the Michigan Wolverines, 72-71 at Crisler Center in Ann Arbor.

Cody Zeller closed out the last 41 seconds of the game by scoring six points for Indiana, including a go-ahead layup with 14 seconds left to give the Hoosiers a one point lead.

Jordon Morgan missed a routine tip-in during the closing seconds that would have given the Wolverines the victory and their second straight conference co-championship.

Zeller had 25 points and 10 rebounds and Victor Oladipo added 14 points and 13 rebounds for the Hoosiers.

Indiana finish their conference schedule with a 14-4 record, 26-5 overall, and are the top seed heading into this week's Big Ten Conference Tournament at United Center in Chicago.

The top four seeds receive a bye into the quarterfinals, landing the Hoosiers in a Friday matchup against the winner of Illinois and Minnesota.

The Purdue Boilermakers also begin the conference tournament on Thursday against Nebraska as the seventh seed.
