A night after an ineffective game, Cody Zeller had 17 points and eight rebounds to lead No. 1 Indiana to an 82-72 overtime win against Georgetown in the title game of the Legends Classic tournament on Tuesday night.
Jordan Hulls had 17 points for Indiana (5-0) and Yogi Ferrell had 14, including seven in overtime. His last points came on a 3-pointer he released just before the shot clock ran out, giving Indiana a 10-point lead with about a minute to go and, finally, clinching a game Indiana almost had wrapped up in regulation.
Victor Oladipo scored 12 points for Indiana and Christian Watford added 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Hoosiers, who took 36 free throws to Georgetown's 10.
Markel Starks scored 20 points for the Hoyas (3-1), and Otto Porter, who fouled out in overtime, made a layup with 4.6 seconds to play that tied the game at 64.
BEST OF MAXIM
BROOKLYN — 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 Hoosiers’ 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:
The Indiana Hoosiers are still the #1 ranked team as of now. They haven’t lost yet and will look to continue their success. They blew away their early opponents because they weren’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. They almost...
BROOKLYN — Perhaps it was the travel or maybe it was playing in an NBA arena in the nation’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...
When Cody Zeller bounced back, he brought his whole team with him.

BROOKLYN — Thoughts on a 66-53 in over Georgia:
I. Here’s the reality of this one: Yes, it was ugly for the first 30 or so minutes, but Indiana’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, four late ones had them at 5-of-16 for the night (31.3%). That adds up to a...
BROOKLYN — Indiana senior Jordan Hulls (14 points) and junior Victor Oladipo (15 points, seven rebounds) met with the media following Indiana’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:
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...
After a sluggish start in their first game away from Assembly Hall and against a big conference foe, Indiana was able to pull away from Georgia in the 2nd half en route to a 66-53 victory.
Jordan Hulls led the way for Indiana with 14 points on 4-6 shooting from downtown, while Victor Oladipo turned in a stellar second half, finishing with 15 points and 8 rebounds. Cody Zeller battled...
BROOKLYN — When Georgetown’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 Crean’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 – four from Jordan Hulls (including...

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.
