In Indiana’s forgettable first half against Nebraska on Wednesday night, the Hoosiers shot just 2-of-7 from beyond the arc. The second half brought stronger returns (6-of-9) as several players got in the mix and the Hoosiers ended the evening a cool 50 percent from distance (8-of-16).
A look at four such scores in the latest edition of Film Session:
I. WILL SHEEHEY
We start this with a different angle from the Big Ten Network broadcast crew. Sheehey hands the ball off to Remy Abell on the right wing. The Cornhuskers have shifted into a 2-3 zone after Brandon Ubel went out with his fourth foul:
Christian Watford sets a pick for Abell and he goes left:
And he swings the ball to Victor Oladipo. Oladipo immediately throws a skip pass to Jordan Hulls in the corner. The Hoosiers have the zone overloaded with three players on the left to Nebraska’s two defenders:
Hulls shot fakes and gets Shavon Shields up in the air and he moves inside the arc:
With Ray Gallegos having to help on Hul...

In our first preview against Purdue, I surmised that Indiana might find itself in a bit of a trap game.

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...
Sometimes he gets lost in the box score because of the seasons Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller are having, but it’s becoming harder and harder to ignore Christian Watford.
A look at the numbers: Watford has scored in double figures in all 12 Big Ten games, and in 15 straight games overall. During that stretch, he’s pulled down at least eight rebounds on eight occasions, and he...
