Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford both had 14 points for the Hoosiers (4-0) and they were the ones who finally started hitting from long range as Indiana established control of the game. The Hoosiers will face the winner of the game between No. 11 UCLA and Georgetown for the title on Tuesday night. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Vincent Williams both had 14 points for Georgia (1-3), which lost its third straight.

Watford hit a 3 with 10:06 left to end the shooting slump and extended Indiana's lead to 45-40. Hulls hit 3s on consecutive possessions to make it 51-42 and Oladipo scored down low with 7:00 left for the first double-digit lead of the game by either team, 53-42. The Hoosiers went on to lead by as many as 17 points. Indiana finished 5 of 16 from 3-point range (31.3 percent) and the Hoosiers had a 40-24 advantage on the boards. They overcame an off night by 7-foot preseason All-America Cody Zeller who was 2 for 4 from the field for six points and had four rebounds and four turnovers. Indiana shot 44.9 percent overall (22 of 49) while Georgia shot 34.0 percent (22 of 49) including going 9 of 25 on 3s. The Bulldogs are now 0-14 all-time against No. 1-ranked teams.
