Inside the Hall:
For the last three games, many of the stories written about Indiana basketball have focused on the Hoosiers’ lack of bench production. For a team expected to be so deep in the preseason, the Hoosiers have struggled to get much offense out of players other than their starters during the Big Ten season.
And while the bench as a whole still had some problems in No. 7 Indiana’s 72-49 win over Penn State on Wednesday night at Assembly Hall, the bench’s most key member broke out of his mini-offensive slump.
Will Sheehey, who didn’t score in games against Minnesota and Wisconsin and had only six points Sunday against Northwestern, scored 12 points and made two huge 3-pointers in the first half to break Penn State’s spirit. Sheehey made 4-of-6 shots in all, including all three of his 3-pointers in 24 minutes of action.
“It was Sheehey hitting 3s,” Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said of the game getting away from his team late in the first half. “Usually he is a good mid-range jump shoote...

The Hoosiers hit eight straight 3-pointers in Wednesday night’s 72-49 win against Penn State, which included two late in the first half and six straight to start the second. Will Sheehey, who’s offense game has struggled some of late, hit three in this stretch to help him get back in rhythm.

One of the main storylines to emerge from Indiana’s victory over the Wildcats on Sunday was its handling of Northwestern’s 1-3-1 defense it sprung on the Hoosiers midway through the second half.
Indiana had its issues with it on some possessions. And with the Wildcats hitting on the other end, it allowed them to make things interesting. But there was also enough success from...

Watch and listen to the press conference in the embedded media player below:
Indiana’s ascent back to the top of the national rankings has been one of the major storylines in college basketball over the last year and that rise is shining a favorable light on Bloomington as a destination for the nation’s top recruits.
After wrapping up one of the top classes in 2012 and 2013, the Hoosier staff continues to recruit aggressively for 2014 and beyond.
The Hoosiers completed a regular season sweep of Penn State with a 72-49 win on Wednesday night in Assembly Hall. Indiana has now won five straight over the Nittany Lions. The win moved Indiana, now 5-1 in the conference, to just a half game back of Michigan State, which visits Bloomington on Sunday.
Here’s a look at five takeaways from IU’s comfortable win:

Rachel Sheffer scored 19 points Thursday, helping No. 23 Michigan get back on track with a 61-43 victory over cold-shooting Indiana.
Kate Thompson added 13 points, and Nya Jordan had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Wolverines (16-3, 5-1 Big Ten), who had their 10-game winning streak snapped in a loss to No. 8 Penn State on Monday.
Aulani Sinclair led the Hoosiers (10-9, 1-5)...
Thoughts on a 72-49 win over the Nittany Lions:
I. When Indiana is making 3-pointers like it did on Wednesday night, few teams in the country, if any, are beating the Hoosiers. Especially at Assembly Hall. After connecting on 5-of-12 attempts from distance in the first half, Indiana came out firing on all cylinders in the second half. The Hoosiers hit their first six 3-point attempts...
