Nebraska: Three Things to Watch
On paper, the Huskers appear to have a huge disadvantage on the boards. Through last weekend’s games, they rank 10th in defensive rebouding percentage and 12th in offensive rebounding percentage during Big Ten play.
That is particularly bad news against an IU squad ranked second in OReb% in conference games, ...

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:
For the third straight year, Tom Crean will bring a McDonald’s All-American to Bloomington.
Cody Zeller was Crean’s first McDonald’s All-American in 2011 and Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell was selected in 2012. The latest Indiana signee to get the prestigious nod is Noah Vonleh.
Vonleh will be on the East roster and is the only Big Ten recruit in the game. The 24-man roster was announced...
Sometimes he gets lost in the box score because of the seasons Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller are having, but it’s becoming harder and harder to ignore Christian Watford.
A look at the numbers: Watford has scored in double figures in all 12 Big Ten games, and in 15 straight games overall. During that stretch, he’s pulled down at least eight rebounds on eight occasions, and he...
Thoughts on a 76-47 win against the Cornhuskers:
Sometimes, it just happens. You throw everything into an effort like the Hoosiers did against Ohio State on Sunday, and then you head home for a game against a Big Ten bottom feeder and the crowd is late to arrive and quiet, and you just come out flat. And so this was Indiana to start the evening: Playing down to the competition. Save...
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...
Coming on the heels of perhaps the most impressive performance a Tom Crean IU team has had, the Hoosiers came out a little sluggish tonight. It’s understandable.
But an early second half explosion, keyed by Victor Oladipo hustle (go figure), got the Hoosiers going. They ultimately took care of business at home over Nebraska, 76-47.
Cody Zeller had a strong second half and led the...
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...
