Inside the Hall:
With a chance to clinch an outright Big Ten championship on the line on Tuesday night at Assembly Hall, Indiana fell 67-58 to Ohio State. The loss sets up a must-win game on Sunday in Ann Arbor in order for the Hoosiers to avoid sharing the league title.
Here’s a look at five takeaways from the loss to the Buckeyes:
· Beyond Cody Zeller, Indiana was stymied by Ohio State’s defense: The Buckeyes have boasted one of the league’s top defenses throughout the conference season and it was on full display Tuesday as the Hoosiers struggled to establish any rhythm offensively. Cody Zeller didn’t have a great night on the glass, but his 17 points on 5-of-9 shooting and 7-of-8 free throws kept IU in the game. Besides Zeller, the Hoosiers struggled to find other players to make plays offensively. Victor Oladipo played well for a stretch early in the second half, but foul trouble kept him from logging his normal allotment of minutes. Christian Watford managed 12 points, but had a couple of costl...

My favorite color commentator in college basketball these days is Dan Dakich. He understands the game very well, and isn’t afraid to call out coaches, even though he was once part of the fraternity. Last night he gained even more points for being very candid about a claim from an Indiana student. During Tuesday’s telecast of the Indiana Hoosiers and Ohio State Buckeyes, Dakich...
Indiana honored Hoosiers' stars Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo on Tuesday night for their 1,000th career point scored.
Indiana’s Victor Oladipo has gone from relative obscurity last season to a potential lottery pick for this year’s upcoming NBA Draft. He’s been one of the most improved players in all of college basketball, and he’s a big reason IU is in play for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Despite the Hoosiers’ loss to Ohio State last night, Oladipo came away with the highlight...
A frustrating and demoralizing loss — that prevented the Indiana basketball team from winning a Big Ten championship outright for the first time in 20 years — didn't stop coach Tom Crean from bringing out the ladders and cutting down the nets on Senior Night at Assembly Hall.
Hours after the 67-58 upset loss to Ohio State, and way past midnight, the Hoosiers players donned...
Indiana’s Victor Oladipo had one of the best blocks we have had the pleasure of seeing on Tuesday night as the Hoosiers took on Ohio State. You can see the ridiculous hops and execution Victor displayed as he sent Shannon Scott’s layup attempt a good twenty feet into the stands. This is as good of a block as you will see this year along with an incredible show of athleticism...
Indiana's Victor Oladipo wanted to make sure that it was clear whwat his intentions were with this shot. I think it is pretty safe to say that everyone understands exactly what he wanted to do.
This was not how the night was supposed to end.
This was Senior Night at Assembly Hall, a night that was supposed to be filled with tear-jerking speeches from Indiana's three seniors, with mothers holding bouquets and players holding framed jerseys, and most of all with a Hoosiers win in their final home game of the season, securing an outright Big Ten regular-season title....
The old tradition of cutting down the nets following championship performances is as much a part of basketball as the opening tip off. On Tuesday night, immediately after losing to Ohio State, the Indiana Hoosiers celebrated their 21st Big Ten championship in school history by taking the shears to the Assembly Hall nylons after the team’s final home game of the year. Cody Zeller...
Derek Elston, Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford met with the media following Indiana’s 67-58 loss to Ohio State on Tuesday at Assembly Hall.
Watch and listen to their comments in the embedded media player below:
Indiana clinched at least a piece of its first Big Ten championship in 11 years over the weekend, but it can have that title all to itself with a win in its home finale.
Ohio State, on the other hand, would be more than happy to settle for a share.
