Inside the Hall:
At times it lacked the energy of the marquee games we’ve seen this season inside Assembly Hall, but Indiana kept pace with Michigan State in the Big Ten standings on Wednesday night with a 76-47 dismantling of Nebraska.
Here’s a look at five takeaways from Indiana’s 10th conference win:
· Nebraska was able to slow Indiana down … and still lost by 29. Nebraska stuck to its guns in this one as the game was played at just 58 possessions, the second slowest pace the Hoosiers have played at this season. The slowest?

Indiana, one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the country, hit just 2-of-7 attempts from distance in the first half, but began to connect after intermission. Indiana hit six of its nine 3-point attempts in the second half. “The trouble in the second half came with their 3-poin...

Tom Crean, Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford met with the media on Tuesday afternoon to preview No. 1 Indiana’s Wednesday meeting with Nebraska.
Watch and listen to both press conferences in the embedded media players below:
Coming on the heels of perhaps the most impressive performance a Tom Crean IU team has had, the Hoosiers came out a little sluggish tonight. It’s understandable.
But an early second half explosion, keyed by Victor Oladipo hustle (go figure), got the Hoosiers going. They ultimately took care of business at home over Nebraska, 76-47.
Cody Zeller had a strong second half and led the...
For the first ten minutes of the game, the Cornhuskers’ tentative and meticulous pacing managed to slow the Hoosiers down to a crawl.
In Wisconsin-like fashion, Nebraska clogged the lane, committed hard fouls, and absolutely refused to give up any easy baskets, effectively knocking Indiana out of any kind of rhythm.
With a 9:53 to go in the first, Jordan Tyrance hit two free throws...
