The Big Ten season tips off tomorrow in Iowa City, but the Hoosiers have already been through a ton since November. Here are five things we learned about the preseason-No. 1 team in the first 13 games of the season. 1. Jordy + Yogi works: One of the top questions leading up to the regular season was whether or not guards Jordan Hulls and Yogi Ferrell could play together in the same backcourt. Some suggested Ferrell would push Hulls aside and steal the majority of his minutes, many believed the two guards were too small to be on the court at the same time. But so far, Hulls and Ferrell have proven those doubters wrong. They have thrived together during the non-conference schedule because each player has stuck to his own strengths. Ferrell, who has 71 assists and just 27 turnovers, has spent the majority of his minutes finding open teammates and playing tight defense on the other end. Hulls, with much of the ball-handling responsibility now in Ferrell’s hands, has been able to do more...

No. 5 Indiana edges Iowa

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. Oladipo beat the shot clock with a putback with...

Oladipo’s late rebound basket helps Hoosiers escape on road

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...

No. 5 Indiana will have freshman forward Jeremy Hollowell back Monday night at Iowa.

The Minute After: Jacksonville

Thoughts on a 93-59 win against the Dolphins: I. Though Indiana eventually won this game by 34 points (Jacksonville actually covered the 36-point spread thanks to a late 3-pointer), it was a slow burn to get up the that mark. The Dolphins trailed by a respectable 15 at half and Indiana didn’t punch the lead to 30 until the 8:52 mark of the second half. They were able to keep it...

The Minute After: Iowa

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...

No. 5 Indiana 93, Jacksonville 59

Jordan Hulls scored 17 of his season-high 20 points in the first half, leading No. 5 Indiana past Jacksonville 93-59 on Friday night. The Hoosiers (12-1) will take a three-game winning streak into Big Ten play, which begins Monday at Iowa. Indiana also has won 29 consecutive non-league games at Assembly Hall. Jacksonville (5-8) was led by Dylan Fritsch with 15 points and Jarvis...

The Hoosiers (12-1) have won three straight, all by at least...

Fifth-ranked Indiana blows out Jacksonville 93-59

Jacksonville tried everything Friday night against No. 5 Indiana. They got Cody Zeller in foul trouble and tried to take advantage of the middle without him. They got the ball to their top scorer, freshman Jarvis Haywood. Nothing worked. Jordan Hulls scored a season-high 20 points, made six 3-pointers and the led the Hoosiers to a 93-59 rout over the Dolphins, Indiana's final...

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. Indiana (12-1) has lost in its last four trips to Iowa...

Hawkeyes can't pull off upset of No. 5 Indiana

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. 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...
