Midwest Sports Fans:
Indiana is back!
If you have followed college basketball even tangentially this season, you have heard this refrain. It was being whispered as a possibility even before the Kentucky game, and it’s been stated with certainty ever since that Kentucky upset was followed by another one over Ohio State.
Just this week, IU cracked the top 10 in both polls, the team is profiled in Sports Illustrated, Dana O’Neill of ESPN wrote a wonderful profile of Cody Zeller, and Tom Crean is scheduled to make an appearance today on Pardon The Interruption.
Indeed, in terms of national relevancy, Indiana is back!

If you know me, if you listen to The Assembly Call, if you follow my constant Hoosier tweets, you know that no one is more overjoyed about Indiana’s 15-1 start than I am. I’m already on record saying that this year’s squad is well on its way to joining the ’92-’93 Hoosiers and the ’01-’02 Hoosiers as my personal favorite IU teams of all time (for context, I was b...

ESPN.com: Unassuming Cody Zeller keys Indiana Hoosiers’ turnaround
With the Zellers, competition never bred contempt. The boys are extremely close — Cody and Tyler speak on the phone frequently, especially now that they share the common war story of college basketball.
Instead, competition bred excellence.
Cody may very well wind up the best Zeller, but that could be due as much...
Indiana coach Tom Crean wouldn’t say whether sophomore swingman Will Sheehey will play Thursday against Minnesota, but he did say Sheehey has been practicing with the team this week.
Crean continues to say Sheehey is “day-to-day,” but said he is progressing.
“He shot some Saturday night, but Sunday was really the first day that he had gone out and done anything else with...
When sixth man Will Sheehey went down with an ankle injury, Indiana needed another bench player to step up. The “next man up” philosophy that coach Tom Crean and the players often reference was suddenly a reality.
Derek Elston, Tom Pritchard and Remy Abell figured to take the majority of Sheehey’s minutes. But it has been senior Matt Roth — a guy that’s been at Indiana...
Indiana has won some home games this season that no one expected it to win. Tonight, the Hoosiers lost a game everyone expected it to win. Hopefully the loss carries with it some important lessons for a team that still isn’t good enough nor accomplished enough to take any game for granted.
We broke it all down, including Indiana’s lack of focus and energy, Cody Zeller’s strong...
Indiana struggled at times defensively in its first four conference games, but the Hoosiers’ vulnerability was mostly hidden by their hot shooting.
The No. 7 Hoosiers (15-2, 3-2) entered Thursday night’s game against Minnesota as the nation’s top 3-point shooting team by percentage. They were shooting 50.5 percent from the field overall. In many ways, they were winning by simply...
Cody Zeller, Jordan Hulls and Will Sheehey met with the media following Indiana’s 77-74 loss to Minnesota at Assembly Hall on Thursday night. Watch the press conference in high-definition video in the embedded player below:
Indiana head coach Tom Crean, along with junior Christian Watford and freshman Cody Zeller, talk about the Hoosiers' game vs. Minnesota on Jan. 12.
Sing it with me now: The strange thing about young teams is that they rarely react as expected, and the Gophers are no exception. They couldn’t manage to hold off the Hawkeyes at home, came out flat in a blow out to Purdue. The season was over, the program was in shambles. There were [...]
