The Assembly Call:
On December 5th, 2000, the Indiana Hoosiers traveled to South Bend to face a 10th-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish team, and won handily, 86-78.
Surprisingly, it wouldn’t be until more than 12 years later before the Hoosiers would go on the road and beat another top 10 team.
On Sunday, it was the work of Indiana’s starting frontcourt (our ‘Big Three’), which quite arguably, put together the best three-man performance that Division I college basketball has seen all season.
Combining for a total of 70 points while shooting 22 of 32 from the floor, Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller, and Christian Watford walked into Columbus, Ohio and simply outscored the Buckeyes themselves, propelling the Hoosiers to a dominating 81-68 victory in what was one of the most tremendous trio of offensive performances I’ve witnessed this season.
If Indiana can have repeat performances like the Big Three against Ohio State, it will be difficult to find an opposing team that can beat them. If that wasn’t champion...

HE SAID WHAT?
If you're familiar with these parts, you'll know CBS college basketball analyst Clark Kellogg is the king of bizarre analogies. That's not to say Kellogg is a bad announcer, far from it. It's just that he uses some really unique phraseology when calling a game. Realllllllllllllly unique phraseology. Usually, Clark's analogies of choice involve food - the...
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Victor Oladipo (career-high 26 points, eight rebounds) and Cody Zeller (24 points, eight rebounds) met with the media following Indiana’s 81-68 win over No. 10 Ohio State on Sunday at Value City Arena.
Watch and listen to the postgame reaction from both players in the embedded media players below:
Clark Kellogg isn’t one to shy away from anything in his analysis of a basketball game.When Indiana traveled to Columbus on Sunday to take on Ohio State, Kellogg looked to infant anatomy to describe Victor Oladipo’s game.Oladipo is having a heck of year and climbing up NBA Draft boards. A front-runner (with Trey Burke) for B1G Player of the Year, Oladipo can take over a game...
Victor Oladipo scored a career-high 26 points, Cody Zeller added 24 and Christian Watford 20 to lead No. 1 Indiana back from a demoralizing loss to a huge road win in beating No. 10 Ohio State 81-68 on Sunday.
The Hoosiers (21-3, 9-3 Big Ten), who dominated the second half, were coming off a stunning collapse that might have caused the undoing of many teams. On Thursday night at...
In the days following Indiana’s shocking loss at Illinois on Thursday night, Tom Crean spent a good amount of time trying to teach his team how to close out games. The Hoosiers had squandered a late lead against the Illini, and left Champaign with a heartbreaking buzzer-beating loss.
Crean showed his team film of the last five minutes of several games this season in which the Hoosiers...
COLUMBUS, Ohio - No. 1 keeps falling. Crazy upsets keep happening. It's been that kind of college basketball season; by now, it's more than a trend.
The thought, though, that there's no clear-cut best team right now, five weeks from Selection Sunday?
Indiana strongly stated its argument against that theory on Sunday. More accurately, what No. 1 Indiana did is bully...
It was another milestone victory for the Tom Crean era at Indiana.
Crean’s Hoosiers have made amazing strides since he took over, but no Crean team – and no IU team at all since 1993 – had beaten a top 10 team on the road. That came to an emphatic end today in Columbus, Ohio.
Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller, and Christian Watford all played like NBA players today, each scoring...
Two days after Indiana’s disappointing loss at Illinois, Tom Crean still felt like his team had wasted a great opportunity for a conference road win. But Crean knew it was important for his team to immediately shift its focus to Sunday’s opponent, Ohio State.
The No. 1 Hoosiers practiced longer than usual on Friday and also had a lengthy team meeting to discuss what went wrong...
The Hoosiers pumped in 1.22 points per possession against a stingy Ohio State defense en route to their 81-68 victory in Columbus on Sunday afternoon. Victor Oladipo (26 points), Cody Zeller (24 points) and Christian Watford (20 points) led the way. While Zeller got plenty of scores and trips to the line via post-ups, he also was the benefactor of some buckets out of a two-man game...
Thoughts on a 81-68 win over the Buckeyes:
Backs against the wall after Thursday’s slipup in Champaign, and the Hoosiers put it together for a full 40 in Columbus. There would be no building of a lead only to see it wilt away. There would be no nitpicking about Indiana still missing a quality road win on the resume after this one. The critics have been silenced, and maybe Indiana’s...
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Victor Oladipo scored a career-high 26 points, Cody Zeller added 24 and Christian Watford 20 to lead No. 1 Indiana back from a demoralizing loss to a huge road win in beating No. 10 Ohio State 81-68 on Sunday.
The Hoosiers (21-3, 9-3 Big Ten), who dominated the second half, were coming off a stunning collapse that might have caused the undoing of many teams...
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Desperate teams. Brutal scheduling. Plenty at stake.
That's the state of the Big Ten just past the midpoint of a conference race that's lived up to its billing.
That's Indiana at Ohio State Sunday. An early February game doesn't get much bigger.
No. 1 Indiana comes in off a shocking loss Thursday night at Illinois. No. 10 Ohio State comes off an overtime...
This is a Hoosier
Fresh off a heartbreaking loss to The Fighting Illini, Cody Zeller and company come into Columbus a little downtrodden. It’s really too bad they can’t have any of the sweets that Ohio State football coach Mike Vrabel is bringing in tomorrow morning to MattaritaVille.

In this past week, four of the Top 5 teams in the country lost. Duke’s win over Boston College prevented it being the first time in over 20 years since everyone in the Top 5 lost (previous time was Feb. 2012).
So who should be #1 when the polls are released later today? Let’s take a look at the top 5 teams and what happened to each of them this past week:
