From Larry Brown Sports:

A home in Fort Wayne, Ind., has become the envy of Indiana Hoosiers fans everywhere thanks to its amazing Christmas lights display.

The home has an elaborate lights display that is coordinated to the first few seconds of the school’s fight song, followed by the radio play-by-play call of Christian Watford’s memorable buzzer-beater that helped the Hoosiers top No. 1-ranked Kentucky 73-72 last December. The home also has a large IU logo on the roof.

Kentucky beat Indiana in the NCAA Tournament and went on to win its eighth national championship, but that hardly matters to Hoosiers fans who are still commemorating one of the program's best moments in the Tom Crean era a year later.

Indiana clamps down on D in easy win

No. 1 Indiana had another strong offensive game on Saturday, and it looks as if the Hoosiers can play defense, too.

Big Ten Geeks on IU’s 3-point shooting

Big Ten Geeks on IU’s 3-point shooting: The Hoosiers are, predictably, shooting worse than last season, but not by much. Indiana is hitting 40 percent from deep, maintaining the three-point shot as a very valuable weapon. Note that the team average would be 36.5 percent were it not for Remy Abell’s 10 for 12 performance. I thought Matt Roth had graduated, but maybe he’s just...

The Minute After: Central Connecticut State

Thoughts on a 100-69-win over the Blue Devils: I.  Christian Watford has had his struggles finding shots in the flow of Indiana’s transition-heavy offense of late. At times, it’s as if he’s been on his own island hunting for shots to no avail. But Watford was engaged from the onset and actively scoring early in this one. (Tom Crean said after the game he was coming off his...

Interested In a Prize Pack That Includes Trips to the Super Bowl, Daytona, and the Final Four?

If you’re on a sports blog, I have to assume that the answer to the question posed in the title is a resounding YES. As a fan of both the 49ers and Indiana Hoosiers myself (apparently I really like the Harbaugh-Crean family), each of which appear to have good chances of reaching their respective title games, such a sports dream prize pack is extra appealing to me this year. So...
