Thoughts on an 87-51 win over Coppin State: I. The Georgia game had its share of ugliness, but this one — the first ten minutes, at least — wasn’t pretty. Indiana missed shots (a Will Sheehey airball, an 0-9 start) and turned the ball over (eight turnovers in the first 10:35). Coppin State’s 2-3 zone had the Hoosiers out of sorts in the halfcourt and the Eagles didn’t surrender easy buckets in transition. As such, Indiana trailed until a Christian Watford 3-pointer at the 9:26 mark put Indiana up 14-11. By half, the Hoosiers were able to amass a 14-point lead (33-19), but shot just 10-of-26 from the floor (38%) and 2-of-11 (18%) from beyond the arc. The 33 points were the second lowest amount of points the Hoosiers have scored heading into the break all season. (They had just 29 in the first half of the Georgia game.) So if this one was going to ratchet up a notch, if it was going to turn from merely a comfortable lead to blowout territory against a team that was rated as Indiana’s ...

Oladipo’s deflection record guides Hoosiers

Indiana couldn’t buy a basket. The No. 1 Hoosiers didn’t look anything like the team that carefully demolished North Carolina on Tuesday night. It wasn’t necessarily that the energy or effort was lacking, but the Hoosiers struggled to get anything going in what turned into a sloppy first half. As soon as the second 20 minutes began, Victor Oladipo changed all that. The junior...

Why the Indiana Hoosiers Are Legit Title Contenders

In an age of insane college basketball parody, could this be the year we see a team run away from the pack and hold down the term, “Best team in the Country” from start to finish?

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...

Live Discussion: Indiana vs. Coppin State

Coppin St.-Indiana Preview

Indiana showed why it's worthy of being the nation's top-ranked team, completely overwhelming a storied program its last time out. That doesn't bode well for one-win Coppin State.

Coppin State fades in loss to No. 1 Indiana
