This is a Hoosier
Fresh off a heartbreaking loss to The Fighting Illini, Cody Zeller and company come into Columbus a little downtrodden. It’s really too bad they can’t have any of the sweets that Ohio State football coach Mike Vrabel is bringing in tomorrow morning to MattaritaVille.

BEST OF MAXIM
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Victor Oladipo (career-high 26 points, eight rebounds) and Cody Zeller (24 points, eight rebounds) met with the media following Indiana’s 81-68 win over No. 10 Ohio State on Sunday at Value City Arena.
Watch and listen to the postgame reaction from both players in the embedded media players below:
In the days following Indiana’s shocking loss at Illinois on Thursday night, Tom Crean spent a good amount of time trying to teach his team how to close out games. The Hoosiers had squandered a late lead against the Illini, and left Champaign with a heartbreaking buzzer-beating loss.
Crean showed his team film of the last five minutes of several games this season in which the Hoosiers...
Thoughts on a 81-68 win over the Buckeyes:
Backs against the wall after Thursday’s slipup in Champaign, and the Hoosiers put it together for a full 40 in Columbus. There would be no building of a lead only to see it wilt away. There would be no nitpicking about Indiana still missing a quality road win on the resume after this one. The critics have been silenced, and maybe Indiana’s...
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Desperate teams. Brutal scheduling. Plenty at stake.
That's the state of the Big Ten just past the midpoint of a conference race that's lived up to its billing.
That's Indiana at Ohio State Sunday. An early February game doesn't get much bigger.
No. 1 Indiana comes in off a shocking loss Thursday night at Illinois. No. 10 Ohio State comes off an overtime...
Victor Oladipo scored a career-high 26 points, Cody Zeller added 24 and Christian Watford 20 to lead No. 1 Indiana back from a demoralizing loss to a huge road win in beating No. 10 Ohio State 81-68 on Sunday.
The Hoosiers (21-3, 9-3 Big Ten), who dominated the second half, were coming off a stunning collapse that might have caused the undoing of many teams. On Thursday night at...
Some call it parity, although that's being kind.
Some chalk it up to the pressure, but that, too, doesn't tell the whole story.
Some call it the curse of the one-and-done's, saying this was as predictable as the next full moon.
Whatever you call it and whatever the cause, the truth of the matter is college basketball isn't very good right now.
Want proof? Name...
It was another milestone victory for the Tom Crean era at Indiana.
Crean’s Hoosiers have made amazing strides since he took over, but no Crean team – and no IU team at all since 1993 – had beaten a top 10 team on the road. That came to an emphatic end today in Columbus, Ohio.
Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller, and Christian Watford all played like NBA players today, each scoring...
COLUMBUS, Ohio - No. 1 keeps falling. Crazy upsets keep happening. It's been that kind of college basketball season; by now, it's more than a trend.
The thought, though, that there's no clear-cut best team right now, five weeks from Selection Sunday?
Indiana strongly stated its argument against that theory on Sunday. More accurately, what No. 1 Indiana did is bully...
Two days after Indiana’s disappointing loss at Illinois, Tom Crean still felt like his team had wasted a great opportunity for a conference road win. But Crean knew it was important for his team to immediately shift its focus to Sunday’s opponent, Ohio State.
The No. 1 Hoosiers practiced longer than usual on Friday and also had a lengthy team meeting to discuss what went wrong...
The Hoosiers pumped in 1.22 points per possession against a stingy Ohio State defense en route to their 81-68 victory in Columbus on Sunday afternoon. Victor Oladipo (26 points), Cody Zeller (24 points) and Christian Watford (20 points) led the way. While Zeller got plenty of scores and trips to the line via post-ups, he also was the benefactor of some buckets out of a two-man game...
On December 5th, 2000, the Indiana Hoosiers traveled to South Bend to face a 10th-ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish team, and won handily, 86-78.
Surprisingly, it wouldn’t be until more than 12 years later before the Hoosiers would go on the road and beat another top 10 team.
On Sunday, it was the work of Indiana’s starting frontcourt (our ‘Big Three’), which quite arguably...
