The Wolverines (18-9, 6-6 Big Ten) helped their NCAA tournament prospects, while the Hoosiers (17-8, 7-5) were playing without injured point guard Earl Callaway.
Indiana took its first lead of the game, 47-46, on two free throws by Mike White with 5:01 left.
Michigan scored on its next two possessions, including Harris' 3-pointer, but two baskets by White left the game tied at 51. White, who didn't score in the game's first 32 minutes, had nine in the next five minutes.
The junior, though, missed a pair of free throws on Indiana's next possession, then was called for a charge.
That let Michigan take a one-point lead, and Smith drove past White to make it 54-51 with 1:26 left.
Roderick Wilmont cut the margin to 56-53 from the line, and Smith's turnover let White make it a one-point game with 20 seconds to go.
Smith's free throws gave Michigan a 58-55 lead, and Bassett missed a 3-pointer. Indiana's Lance Stemler grabbed the rebound with two seconds left, but inexplicably passed the ball as time expired.
Courtney Sims had 13 points for Michigan and Smith added 12.
White led Indiana with a career-high 11, while Wilmont and Errek Suhr had 10 each.
Indiana closed to within 13-11 before hitting just three shots in the final 12 minutes of the half. That let the Wolverines pull out to a seven-point advantage at the intermission, as they held the Hoosiers to 26.9 percent shooting and a season-low 18 first-half points.
Two 3-pointers by A.J. Ratliff kept Indiana in the game, and the Hoosiers pulled within 42-41 on White's layup with seven minutes left.
