Inside the Hall:
The Hoosiers cut Kentucky’s lead to just five points with 5:14 to go in their 102-90 loss on Friday night. But that’s as close as they would get as the Wildcats outscored Indiana 20-13 the rest of the way out.
A look at how the Hoosiers cut the deficit – and how it was lost – in this season’s final edition of Film Session.
1) Off a baseline inbounds, Jordan Hulls is able to find Cody Zeller:
Zeller takes the ball and spins on his right pivot foot:
Zeller hesitates and fakes, and Anthony Davis stays straight up and doesn’t leave his feet:
Zeller goes up for the shot with Davis still staying straight up and not leaving his feet. It’s a bucket to cut the lead to seven:
Zeller didn’t back down from Davis all night and this was yet another example of his ability to score against an elite, lengthy defender. (Though it should be noted that Davis may have been looking to avoid a third foul here.)
On the ensuing Kentucky possession, Terrence Jones has the ball out on the peri...

The unforgiving reality of the NCAA Tournament was just beginning to rear its head inside Indiana’s locker room at the Georgia Dome in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Just six days earlier, the Hoosiers were riding a feeling they’d never experienced before in the Rose Garden in Portland.
The two scenes had few similarities.
In the first, smiles, hugs and excitement for...
Anthony Davis is a fun-loving teenager who has swatted away and dunked enough basketballs to become the most dominant player in the college ranks.
And that's just in one season at Kentucky.
By most accounts he would be the No. 1 pick in this year's NBA draft if he leaves school.
His steady play and calm demeanor makes it easy to forget he just turned 19 on March 11.
Christian Watford barely had time to take a seat and start untying his shoes before the question came in the Georgia Dome locker room.
“There’s some talk you may be going to the next level, are you going to be back?” the Indiana junior was asked less than two minutes after returning from the press conference podium.
An affirmative that Watford, who scored a team-high 27 points...
Top-seeded Kentucky got a scare when freshman star Anthony Davis went down with an injured left knee in the South Regional final against Baylor.
The Wildcats were cruising along with a big lead Sunday when Davis banged knees with Baylor's Perry Jones III on a drive to the basket early in the second half.
Davis, who leads the nation in blocked shots, stayed down along the baseline...
Tom Crean sat virtually expressionless at the microphone, searching for words — any words — to describe what he had just seen on the Georgia Dome floor.
“‘I’ve been thinking about that,” he said, glancing at the stat sheet in front of him. “I’m not sure what to say.”
His team had played far too well to lose. The Hoosiers made tough shots and they didn’t get discouraged...
Baylor dunked its way into the NCAA South Regional final.
Kentucky is waiting with the nation's most imposing deterrent to the Bears' hopes for another dunkfest Sunday.
Quincy Acy had four of Baylor's seven jams in a 75-70 regional semifinal win over Xavier on Friday night. The highlight was his one-handed slam over 7-footer Kenny Frease on an alley-oop pass. The play...
It looked like Baylor was going to give Kentucky all that it could handle 4 minutes into the game with 10-5 lead following at Quincy Miller’s three-point shot, but John Calipari called a timeout and implored his players to play their game and dominate. That is exactly what the Wildcats did as they ripped off an impressive 16-0 run and did not look back the rest of the way, closing...
The Kentucky Wildcats have looked unbeatable in their run to the final four. As well as they are playing I don’t know if some of the bad NBA teams could beat them. There is really no weakness to their game right now. Guards Marquis Teague and Doron Lamb are playing their best basketball of the season. Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd Gilchrist could be the first...
ATLANTA (AP) -- Kentucky is taking its highlight show back to the Big Easy.
With an NBA-like display from a young team filled with future pros, top-seeded Wildcats advanced to the Final Four for the second year in a row with a 82-70 blitzing of Baylor in the South Regional final on Sunday.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 19 points, Anthony Davis added 18 points and 11 rebounds, and...
CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein is reporting Syracuse recruit Nerlens Noel will “ultimately wind up in Lexington.” Recently, The Fizz dissected the New York Times’ piece on the shady characters around Noel. It’s not an indictment of the high school big man himself, but instead the questionable “handlers” many high-profile basketball recruits find themselves fending off. Rothstein...
Four perennial college basketball powerhouses descend on the Big Easy this weekend in search of the big prize. Kentucky, Ohio State, Kansas and Louisville have combined for 49 Final Four appearances between them and all have their eyes on the national championship prize. Each team is capable of reaching its goal. Of course, only one will. Which team will that be? We’ll get to that...
