Inside the Hall:
Beyond the relentless break this Indiana team throws at opponents, beyond the individual talent of their Starting Six, there’s this truth: These Hoosiers, they of the most efficient offense in the country, show a special ability to share the ball and make the extra (and sometimes extra-extra-extra) pass.
A deep look at a prime example of their unselfishness in the latest edition of Film Session.
Indiana punches the lead out to 19 in the second half against North Carolina and the water smells of blood.
Cody Zeller snags a rebound on the left block off a Tar Heel miss. He immediately outlet passes to Jordan Hulls. Hulls pushes it up the left side of the court. Will Sheehey — who bragged before the season that “there’s nobody in the country that can run as far and as long as I can,” and a re-watch of Indiana’s torrid run in the second half can make you a believer in such things – and Victor Oladipo sprint down the right side and look to fill an opening in the middle of the floor nea...

Indiana senior Jordan Hulls, freshman Yogi Ferrell and assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Kenny Johnson met with the media Friday to preview Saturday’s game at Assembly Hall with Coppin State.
Watch and listen to both press conferences in the embedded media players below:
In an age of insane college basketball parody, could this be the year we see a team run away from the pack and hold down the term, “Best team in the Country” from start to finish?
The current No. 1 Indiana Hoosiers have the talent and experience to do it, so will they?
Here’s why we think they’re the best bet to pull it off.
With college basketball in full swing these past...
Indiana coach Tom Crean appeared on the new Jim Rome show on Showtime Wednesday evening. Here’s a recap of Rome’s interview with the coach of the 7-0, No. 1-ranked Hoosiers:
· Rome started by pointing out that the Hoosiers “smacked” North Carolina and noting that Will Sheehey called the win a huge statement. Crean was asked if that’s how he saw the win and also what message...
When Indiana shocked the country and beat Kentucky last December, it took a last second shot. It took squandering a double-digit lead. It took overcoming several defensive lapses.
It took, well, an upset.
Tuesday night’s win against No. 14 North Carolina was, to put it simply, different. This time, the Hoosiers’ first matchup against a nationally-ranked opponent didn’t require...
Thoughts on an 87-51 win over Coppin State:
I. The Georgia game had its share of ugliness, but this one — the first ten minutes, at least — wasn’t pretty. Indiana missed shots (a Will Sheehey airball, an 0-9 start) and turned the ball over (eight turnovers in the first 10:35). Coppin State’s 2-3 zone had the Hoosiers out of sorts in the halfcourt and the Eagles didn’t surrender...
Victor Oladipo and Will Sheehey both scored 14 points to lead No. 1 Indiana to an 87-51 win over Coppin State on Saturday night.
The top-ranked Hoosiers (8-0) overcame poor shooting at the start of the game and pulled away from the Eagles (1-6). Indiana missed its first nine shots and didn't take the lead until Christian Watford's 3-pointer with 9:25 left in the first half...
Indiana recorded a season-high nine steals against Ball State in its 101-53 win on Sunday evening.
A look at three steals the Hoosiers quickly turned into scores — a large point of emphasis for a defense now ranked No. 6 in adjusted defensive efficiency according to KenPom — in the latest edition of Film Session.
I. Jauwan Scaife is guarded by Maurice Creek up top:
If there was any question whether Indiana deserved its No. 1 ranking, last night answered with a resounding “yes.” The Hoosiers dominated the Tar Heels in every facet of the game, utilizing their deep, talented roster to cruise 83-59 at Assembly Hall.
To break down IU’s win last night, ESPN.com’s Eammon Brennan joins hosts Matt Dollinger and Greg Rosenstein on this week’s...
Indiana showed why it's worthy of being the nation's top-ranked team, completely overwhelming a storied program its last time out.
That doesn't bode well for one-win Coppin State.
The Hoosiers will try to sustain the energy they displayed in their last game and avoid a letdown Saturday night when they host an Eagles team that hasn't defeated a ranked opponent in...
