Found November 21, 2012 on The Assembly Call:
Georgetown may not be ranked, but that won’t be the case for long. The Hoyas are a long, tough bunch, and they gave Indiana everything the Hoosiers could handle tonight. But the #1 team in America – still playing without its top three frontcourt reserves – did what the #1 team should do: it responded to gut check time and won a gritty game against a good team. Jordan Hulls led the way, scoring 17 points, with each basket seeming bigger than the next. Cody Zeller also scored 17, and Yogi Ferrell took advantage of the Hoosier free throw parade to knock down 9-11 free throws en route to 14 points of his own. And, as we talk about on tonight’s show, though their box score lines may not reflect it, Victor Oladipo and Christian Watford made winning plays on defense and the glass that helped the Hoosiers earn this victory…and a tournament championship.

Notebook: Resilient Hoosiers excel in overtime

The Minute After: Georgetown

BROOKLYN — Thoughts on an 82-72 overtime win over Georgetown: I. Indiana and Georgetown traded three after three over each other’s zone defenses in the first half, and this began as it finished, in the words of Tom Crean, “an epic battle.” Georgetown may not be ranked now, but it’ll come as little surprise if the Hoyas find themselves in the Top 25 sooner rather than later...
