BEST OF MAXIM
It’s time for Indiana University’s finest Max Lipsett to show off his skills on the big ESPN Stage. This dedicated Hoosier may not be a “physical specimen”, but he can shoot the rock. His speciality…the infamous halfcourt shot. The famous Wayne Gretzky quote, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”, pretty much sums it up…It’s time for Max “Automatic”...

Michigan’s guard were caught napping instead of boxing out Cody Zeller on multiple occasions during Satuday’s matchup with then No. 1 Michigan. Zeller collected two offensive rebounds and threw them both right back into the net. Will Indiana be the new No.1 when polls come out Monday?

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Cody Zeller scored 19 points and Victor Oladipo had 15, leading No. 3 Indiana to an 81-73 victory over No. 1 Michigan on Saturday night.
