It’s really a two-man race at this point between Mason Plumlee and Russ Smith. I’ve been championing Smith’s case simply because he doesn’t seem to be getting a fair shake nationally. In addition to large improvements in shooting percentages, Smith plays for the #1 ranked defense in the nation and he plays a significant part in that...
IOWA CITY, Iowa — Time and again, No. 5 Indiana built a reasonably comfortable lead, and then let Iowa back in the game. And time and again, Victor Oladipo was there to bail the Hoosiers out.
So it was only fitting that when they needed a huge bucket late to put the pesky Hawkeyes away on the road, Oladipo was the one to get it. With 1:03 remaining and Indiana ahead just 63-60...
Cody Zeller had 15 of his 19 points in the second half and fifth-ranked Indiana opened Big Ten play by holding off Iowa 69-65 on Monday night.
Victor Oladipo scored 14 points for the Hoosiers (13-1, 1-0 Big Ten), who snapped a four-game losing streak in Iowa City and have now won four straight since losing to Butler two weeks ago.

Late in the afternoon on New Year’s Eve, the Indiana Hoosiers scored their first Big Ten victory of the season. And it was an important victory, as it came on the road against a team many think will compete for an NCAA Tournament bid.
That doesn’t mean it was a pretty performance by the Hoosiers, what with Jordan Hulls going for 0-10 and Cody Zeller playing an uneven game (despite...
Thoughts on a 69-65 win against the Hawkeyes:
I. Had Iowa made more shots (just 33.3 percent from the field and a horrific 17.6 percent (3-of-17) from beyond the arc), had a few possessions turned one way instead of the other, Indiana would be sitting at 0-1 on the Big Ten season and still unable to figure out the Carver-Hawkeye Arena puzzle in the Tom Crean era. But alas, the Hoosiers...

Iowa opened the Big Ten with an encouraging effort against fifth-ranked Indiana, which many think might win the league in 2013.
But the Hawkeyes didn't finish the job against the Hoosiers, instead letting a huge opportunity at home to slip away.

Will Sheehey’s jumper at the 10:04 mark in the second half put the Hoosiers up eight (56-48) in their New Year’s Eve win against the Hawkeyes. It was the largest lead they’d see the rest of the game, as Iowa cut the lead all the way down to one before the Hoosiers eventually escaped with a four-point win (69-65).

Life has been easy for Indiana since it was handed its first loss two weeks ago. That could change Monday as it opens play in the conference that many consider to be the best in the country.
In their first true road contest of the season, the fifth-ranked Hoosiers begin their Big Ten schedule at Iowa on New Year's Eve.
