ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- It’s kind of like the loss that keeps on giving.

Michigan coach John Beilein said his team probably wouldn’t have beaten Wisconsin on Sunday without its loss to Indiana just three days before.

And after a thrilling overtime finish in Crisler Arena, it seems there’s a pretty good chance that without that same defeat that the No. 13 Michigan basketball team wouldn’t have come away with a 66-64 win over Northwestern on Wednesday.
