Michigan forward Sam Arnold, right, drives to the basket against Indiana forward Andrea Newbauer during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game in the Big Ten women's tournament in Hoffman Estates Thursday.
Nicole Elmblad scored 14 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, and Michigan steamrolled Indiana 67-40 on Thursday night in the first round of the Big Ten Conference tournament.
Rachel Sheffer added 12 points for the fifth-seeded Wolverines (21-9), and Nya Jordan had eight points and 13 rebounds. Michigan outrebounded Indiana 45-30, outscored the Hoosiers 32-10 in the paint and never trailed in the game.
Jasmine McGhee led the 12th-seeded Hoosiers (11-19) with 12 points. Indiana shot just 27 percent from the floor.
The game was never really in doubt. Michigan scored the game's first 12 points, capped by a Jordan layup, en route to a 31-21 halftime lead. The Wolverines then opened the second half on a 12-2 run and cruised from there.
Michigan State will face No. 4 seed Michigan State in the tournament quarterfinals Friday.
