Inside the Hall:
There was a great deal of speculation throughout the weeks and months leading up to Sunday that Indiana’s path to the Final Four would go through Indianapolis. The Hoosiers were ranked No. 1 for a good portion of the year, and they figured to be a safe bet for the Midwest region’s top seed.
But when the brackets were revealed Sunday evening, the Hoosiers were sent East. They won’t be playing in Lucas Oil Stadium this postseason.
Why? Well, most likely because of their loss to Wisconsin in Saturday’s Big Ten tournament semifinal in Chicago. The Hoosiers lost, and Louisville won the Big East tournament, giving them the top overall seed in the Big Dance.
“Probably,” guard Victor Oladipo said when asked if Saturday’s loss cost Indiana the Midwest region. “But I can’t go back and change time, I can’t go back and change the past. All I can do is look forward to the future.”
The Hoosiers’ path will first take them to Dayton and then to Washington D.C. if they advanc...

Indiana isn’t on the bubble. That’s good for Hoosier fans. But Indiana’s 68-56 loss to Wisconsin in Saturday’s Big Ten Tournament semifinal might impact what region the Hoosiers end up in when the bracket is revealed Sunday night at 6 p.m. on CBS.
Had the Hoosiers beaten the Badgers, they likely would have locked up the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, and more...

Hoosiers screenwriter Angelo Pizzo, 65, was born in Bloomington and returned in 2005 after three decades in Southern California. His passion for Indiana basketball runs so deep that he skipped the 1987 Academy Awards (at which Hoosiers had been nominated for two Oscars) to watch Indiana win the...

The 2013 NCAA Bracket was officially announced on Selection Sunday. Check out how the Indiana-led East Region shapes up.
The East Region is lead by the Indiana Hoosiers who finished 27-6 and were upset by Wisconsin 68-56 in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament.

When it comes to the NCAA Tournament, the East is usually full of heavy weights from the East Coast. This year, none of the usual suspects closed when they needed to and opened up the top spot for Indiana. The Hoosiers also failed to win their Conference Tourney, but they are a legit No.1 from a very tough Big Ten.
So it makes sense they are the odds on favorite to win the East when...
