Trayce Jackson-Davis, Hunter Dickinson exchange powerful and-1 dunks
Indiana and Michigan are squaring off Saturday in a late-season B1G battle with some talented big men on display.
For Michigan, the Wolverines are trying to put the finishing touches on a regular-season conference title and bid for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. It would be Michigan’s first regular-season title since 2014.
On the other side of the ball, Indiana is trying to stop its late-season skid with an upset in Bloomington. The Hoosiers have lost three of their last four, including back-to-back losses to unranked Michigan State and Rutgers.
So far, the first half has seen some fireworks put up by both teams’ big men. Indiana’s Trayce Jackson-Davis started the highlights with an emphatic and-one dunk over freshman Hunter Dickinson. Unfortunately, Jackson-Davis missed the would-be tying free throw.
Less than a minute later, Dickinson wound up with a mismatch on the low block. He manhandled Indiana’s Anthony Leal before throwing down a basket over Race Thompson. Dickinson netted the free throw to complete the and-one.
Here are the two dunks:

As the game is winding down toward halftime, Michigan has built a double-digit lead over the Hoosiers. Can Indiana answer back in the second half, or will the Wolverines cruise to 18-1?
