Previewing #14 UNC at #1 Indiana

The real shame is this game didn't happen last season when Tyler Zeller was still in Chapel Hill and he could have faced his brother Cody. Then again that may have killed their parents so it is probably for the best. UNC heads to Bloomington tonight to fave a well rounded opponent in Indiana which boasts five players averaging in double figures and a balanced offensive attack...

Hoosiers show why they’re No. 1

It took, well, an upset. Tuesday night’s win against No. 14 North Carolina was, to put it simply, different. This time, the Hoosiers’ first matchup against a nationally-ranked opponent didn’t require...

The Minute After: North Carolina

Thoughts on an 83-59 win over the Tar Heels: I. Believe they call this a beatdown, friends. Sure, North Carolina kept it respectable in the first half. Indiana didn’t get to the line much (just 6-of-7 through the first 20 minutes for a team with the highest free throw rate in the nation) and were pedestrian from beyond the arc (2-of-8). A little run to end the half  – which...

IU-North Carolina Quick Recap and Postgame Show

What a performance from Indiana. After trading baskets with North Carolina for 16 minutes – but always seeming in control – Indiana went on an epic 10-minute run to make a 2-point game a 20-point game and essentially run the Tar Heels out of the gym. Cody Zeller, Victor Oladipo, and Will Sheehey led the scoring attack with 20, 19, 19 each (and all going 8-13 from the field,...

Film Session: The anatomy of Indiana’s selflessness

Beyond the relentless break this Indiana team throws at opponents, beyond the individual talent of their Starting Six, there’s this truth: These Hoosiers, they of the most efficient offense in the country, show a special ability to share the ball and make the extra (and sometimes extra-extra-extra) pass. A deep look at a prime example of their unselfishness in the latest edition...
