The Assembly Call:
Georgetown may not be ranked, but that wonâ€™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 â€“ still playing without its top three frontcourt reserves â€“ 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 tonightâ€™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 victoryâ€¦and a tournament championship.

It has been quite some time since we saw the old Bobby Knight. There were brushes of it, when the former Indiana Hoosiers basketball coach refused to refer to Kentucky by name, but that was childâ€™s play compared to last night during ESPNâ€™s broadcast of Indiana vs Georgia. The Indianapolis Star put together a string [...]
BOBBY BEING BOBBY
Bobby Knight served as an analyst for an Indiana game for the first time and said that he "would’ve shot" a player before allowing said player to take an ill-advised three-pointer.
BROOKLYN â€” Indiana freshman Yogi Ferrell (14 points, four assists), senior Jordan Hulls (17 points, four steals) and sophomore Cody Zeller (17 points, eight rebounds) met with the media following the Hoosiersâ€™ 82-72 overtime win over Georgetown in the Legends Classic at the Barclays Center on Tuesday night.
Watch and listen to what each player had to say in the embedded media players below:
BROOKLYN â€” Perhaps it was the travel or maybe it was playing in an NBA arena in the nationâ€™s largest city, but Indiana got off to a very slow start on Monday evening at the Barclays Center against Georgia in the Legends Classic. Senior guard Jordan Hulls hit a 3-pointer to start the game, but the Hoosiers missed their next eleven from beyond the arc. IU was 8-of-25 (32 percent...
BROOKLYN â€” Indiana senior Jordan Hulls (14 points) and junior Victor Oladipo (15 points, seven rebounds) met with the media following Indianaâ€™s 66-53 win over Georgia in the Legends Classic at the Barclays Center on Monday night.
Watch and listen to what both players had to say in the embedded media players below:
The Indiana Hoosiers are still the #1 ranked team as of now. Â They havenâ€™t lost yet and will look to continue their success. Â They blew away their early opponents because they werenâ€™t very challenging competitors. However, Indiana almost slipped up last night, which would have ended their winning streak and bumped them out of the number one spot. Â They almost...
Indiana is still a runaway No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll and Louisville is again a solid second. Then come the changes, with Kentucky dropping five spots to eighth.
The Hoosiers (3-0) receive 46 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel. The Cardinals (5-0) get the other 19 No. 1 votes.

BROOKLYN â€” Thoughts on a 66-53 in over Georgia:
I. Hereâ€™s the reality of this one: Yes, it was ugly for the first 30 or so minutes, but Indianaâ€™s final offensive surge to end the game made it respectable. The Hoosiers ended up shooting 51.5% on 2s and after starting out just 1-of-12 on 3-pointers, Â four late ones had them at 5-of-16 for the night (31.3%). That adds up to a...

against Georgetown in the title game of the Legends Classic
tournament on Tuesday night.

BROOKLYN â€” When Georgetownâ€™s Otto Porter hit a layup to tie the game with seconds remaining in regulation, it seemed momentum would swing in favor of the Hoyas.
But Tom Creanâ€™s team was resilient and showed poise from the start of overtime, taking control from the tip.
The Hoosiers scored six of the first eight points in the extra period â€“ four from Jordan Hulls (including...
BROOKLYN â€” Thoughts on an 82-72 overtime win over Georgetown:
I. Indiana and Georgetown traded three after three over each otherâ€™s zone defenses in the first half, and this began as it finished, in the words of Tom Crean, â€śan epic battle.â€ť Georgetown may not be ranked now, but itâ€™ll come as little surprise if the Hoyas find themselves in the Top 25 sooner rather than later...
Victor Oladipo had 15 points and eight rebounds to lead No. 1 Indiana to a 63-53 victory over Georgia on Monday night in the semifinals of the Progressive Legends Classic at the Barclays Center.
