What a win for Indiana.
Just a few weeks after beating #1 ranked Kentucky in Assembly Hall, the Hoosiers toppled #2 ranked Ohio State 74-70 tonight. Every starter was in double figures, led by Jordan Hulls’ 17, and the three guys I said needed to step up after the Michigan State game – Hulls, Cody Zeller, and Tom Crean – all did just that tonight.
As Ohio State superstar Jared Sullinger tweeted soon after the game ended, “Give credit when credit is due. IU basketball is back everybody…. Tough basketball team.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
If you missed the postgame show, it is embedded below. I thought Andy and Ryan really came through with some tremendous analysis tonight, and our buddy Nick was on point giving well-deserved plaudits to Coach Crean.

And then a picture, taken from that Inside The Hall post, that absolutely sums up tonight’s game…and Indiana’s found-again prowess at home:
After Indiana’s second monumental home win, which legitimizes the Kentucky victory and truly signifies Indiana basketball being back, I don’t know about you…but celebrating the new year is going to be even more fun tonight.
