Mount St. Mary's coach Jamion Christian thinks No. 6 Indiana should be the model for how college basketball teams play.
If the Mountaineers didn't figure out what Christian meant at practice, they certainly understand now.
Cody Zeller and Christian Watford dominated the middle and the Hoosiers shot 70.6 percent from the field and again looked like the nation's top team in a 93-54 rout of the Mountaineers on Wednesday night.
''That is a national championship caliber team,'' Christian said. ''I really admire how they play the game of basketball. Any coach wants their team playing unselfishly, and I think they had 28 assists tonight. It is unbelievable how they share the ball.''
Officially, it was 27 assists, but that didn't change the point or the result.
The Mountaineers (4-5) were already overmatched against Indiana's size, speed and depth, and on a night the angry Hoosiers were determined to make amends for their first loss of the season. Mount St. Mary's had no chance.
