Inside the Hall:
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 any drama. It didn’t have any valleys.
This time, they climbed on top, stepped on Carolina’s throat, and then stomped on it — over and over again. It was a massacre with the entire nation watching, and it proved to everyone why Indiana is ranked No 1.
Indiana 83, North Carolina 59.
“It’s a huge statement,” junior forward Will Sheehey said afterward. “I mean, you saw the score. We played hard, we played well, we played together.”
The Hoosiers (7-0) did those things last year, too, but this season has a whole different feel to it. To a certain extent, they have now been there before. There are no more surprises,...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Cody Zeller (20 points, eight rebounds), Victor Oladipo (19 points) and Will Sheehey (19 points, five rebounds) met with the media following Indiana’s 83-59 win over North Carolina on Tuesday night at Assembly Hall.
Watch and listen to the press conference in the embedded media player below:
The real shame is this game didn't happen last season when Tyler Zeller was still in Chapel Hill and he could have faced his brother Cody. Then again that may have killed their parents so it is probably for the best. UNC heads to Bloomington tonight to fave a well rounded opponent in Indiana which boasts five players averaging in double figures and a balanced offensive attack...
The lights went out for a few seconds at Assembly Hall during the second half of Tuesday night's NCAA basketball game at Indiana, where the Hoosiers were hosting the North Carolina Tarheels. It happened with 19:04 left during a play stoppage after a whistle for a jump ball. The incident had no effect on the game, and No. 1 Indiana won easily 83-59. However, you have to...
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.

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.

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...
With so much hype surrounding the Indiana Hoosiers season, I thought it would be a good idea to take advantage of being lucky enough to be living in “BTown” as the season unfolds. Thanks to my immeasurable generosity, I’ve decided to spread that luck to all of you Assembly Call followers!
For all of the Hoosiers’ biggest games in the 2012-2013 season, I’ll take you through...
Thoughts on an 83-59 win over the Tar Heels:
I. Believe they call this a beatdown, friends. Sure, North Carolina kept it respectable in the first half. Indiana didn’t get to the line much (just 6-of-7 through the first 20 minutes for a team with the highest free throw rate in the nation) and were pedestrian from beyond the arc (2-of-8). A little run to end the half – which...
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...
What a performance from Indiana.
After trading baskets with North Carolina for 16 minutes – but always seeming in control – Indiana went on an epic 10-minute run to make a 2-point game a 20-point game and essentially run the Tar Heels out of the gym.
Cody Zeller, Victor Oladipo, and Will Sheehey led the scoring attack with 20, 19, 19 each (and all going 8-13 from the field,...
