Iowa 64, Indiana 63

Iowa continued to have Indiana’s number on Saturday, beating the Hoosiers 64-63 at Assembly Hall.

The Hawkeyes have won four in a row against the Hoosiers (12-12, 3-8 Big Ten), but this one was the closest.

Bryce Cartwright made a jumper from near the baseline with 1:28 remaining to give Iowa a 64-63 lead.

Verdell Jones missed a jump shot, but Indiana created a stop on defense and got the ball back with 27 seconds remaining.

That’s when things got weird: Indiana dribbled out 13 seconds before calling a timeout.

Jeremiah Rivers inbounded the ball to Jones, who waved off Rivers. After a few fruitless passes, Indiana coach Tom Crean called another timeout and was furious over what had happened.

With only four seconds remaining, Rivers got the ball to Jones, who worked to his right and took a midrange jumper. It rimmed out, and Victor Oladipo could not get the attempted put-back to fall.

Jones took Indiana’s last three shots, all of the misses, and finished 1-of-9 from the field in 21 minutes.

Hulls led the Hoosiers and tied his career-high with 24 points — including four 3-pointers.

Indiana led by as much as 10, as recently as when there was just 7:47 remaining in the game.

Indiana not sleeping on Iowa again

Indiana was in a situation similar to this just over a year ago.

Fans were starting to believe the Hoosiers had turned the corner. They’d survived, for the time being, the devastating injury to star guard Maurice Creek, winning three of their first six Big Ten games, including back-to-back victories over Minnesota and Penn State.

The next game after the Penn State win, their first true road victory of the season, they had Iowa at home. It was the only conference team that they had defeated in 2008-09 with the makeshift group that emerged from the rubble of the Kelvin Sampson recruiting scandal. For the first time in the conference season, they were favored.

But then they were crushed 58-43 by Iowa and didn’t win again for well over a month.

Indiana coach Tom Crean initially disputed any inference that the Hoosiers underestimated Iowa, but admitted later that it may have been the case.

He said Friday that there’s no way that happens this time. The Hoosiers have lost to Iowa twice at Carver-Hawkeye Arena since then, and the Hawkeyes recently crushed Michigan State 72-52, further proving they are not to be overlooked. (more…)


Indiana names Brandon Shelby cornerbacks coach

Indiana has tabbed Brandon Shelby, cornerbacks coach at Louisiana-Monroe, as its cornerbacks coach.

Shelby played at Oklahoma from 2001-2004, earning All-Big 12 honors as a defensive back. He was also part of the Oklahoma coaching staff in 2006.

Shelby coached at San Diego in 2008, Portland State in 2009 and was at Louisiana-Monroe in 2010.

Shelby’s addition finally finishes Indiana’s coaching staff.
