In the Hoosiers’ 89-68 win against the Ospreys, IU had four players in double figures and nine players with at least six points — five of them coming off the bench — that propelled them to victory.
Saturday evening, the Hoosiers have a chance to get back on track after a decisive 69-52 loss to No. 4 Syracuse in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge when they face North Florida at 7:30 p.m. in Assembly Hall.
After a week to prepare, tonight the Hoosiers travel to Syracuse, N.Y.,
for their battle in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge to face a team who
recently moved into the top five
in the country — to No. 4 — after Monday’s latest AP poll was released.
NEW YORK - After playing meager minutes because of foul trouble the whole evening, IU freshman forward Noah Vonleh still had a chance to pull the Hoosiers to victory in the championship of the 2K Sports Classic Friday night against No. 18 Connecticut.
Although the Hoosiers’ scoring from the field would ebb and flow throughout their semi-final matchup against Washington Thursday night at Madison Square Garden, Indiana managed to combine an improved free throw shooting performance along with an abundance of second-chance points en route to the 102-84 victory, pairing them up with Connecticut in the finals of the 2K Sports Classic Friday.
Tonight, as IU Coach Tom Crean’s squad plays its first game of the 2K Sports Classic Tournament in the hallowed halls of Madison Square Garden, Crean said he doesn’t want his players to block out the differences between Assembly Hall and the court the Hoosiers play Washington on this evening.
