The impending snow and ice storm set to hit the Midwest has much of the Big Ten scrambling to make contingency plans for this week’s basketball games. Indiana athletic director Fred Glass said IU will be in constant contact with local authorities to determine how best to handle Wednesday’s home game against Minnesota.
Glass said Kit Klingelhoffer, the assistant athletic director for game management, will be Indiana’s point man on the issue and will be in touch with state police, etc. and will also be in contact with authorities at Minnesota and with game officials to make certain that all necessary parties can safely travel to Bloomington.
By rule, Glass said, the decision to hold or not hold the game is to be made by Indiana in consultation with Minnesota and the Big Ten office. Glass said IU would play the situation as it goes, but did say that if Monroe County declares a state of emergency, the game will be postponed.
Here is Jeremy Hogan’s sequence of photos from the final play of the game.
EAST LANSING, Mich. — Indiana took Michigan State beyond regulation and had a chance to upset the Spartans in overtime, but fell just short when the Spartans took the lead on a hook shot by Draymond Green and the Hoosiers failed to score on their final possession, giving the Spartans an 84-83 win in front of 14,797 at the Breslin Center.
Green, who also hit two free throws with 2.9 seconds to go to force overtime, had 19 points, 13 rebounds and five assists. Michigan State senior point guard Kalin Lucas led all scorers with 26 points to go with four assists. Senior swingman Durrell Summers had 17 points and junior forward Delvon Roe had 10 points and nine rebounds.
Indiana got impressive outings from almost everyone who touched the floor. Sophomore forward Christian Watford had 21 points, including four 3-pointers, and was one of five Hoosiers in double figures. Sophomore guard Jordan Hulls had 17 to go with four assists. Junior guard Matt Roth had 12 points, knocking down four of five 3-point attempts. Freshman guard Victor Oladipo was a perfect 5-for-5 from the field for 11 points, and senior guard Jeremiah Rivers had 10 points.
The Hoosiers had a lead of as great as 12 points in the first half, and had a chance to put the game away late. However, Rivers missed the front end of a crucial one and one when the Hoosiers were up three points, and Lucas dashed down the middle of the lane for a layup that cut it to one. Rivers got another chance at the line and missed the first free throw but made the second, giving the Spartans the ball with a chance to tie it. They did when Green grabbed an offensive rebound and drew a foul underneath, then made both free throws. Hulls tried to draw a foul on a desperation heave, but was denied.
After Green’s hook in overtime, the Hoosiers had the ball with around 20 seconds left. Hulls tried to drive but ran into Derrick Nix. The ball was knocked loose and a tie-up was called with 1.2 seconds to go. IU kept the ball and had one shot, but Hulls missed from the left wing to end the game.
Matt Weaver from Peegs is reporting that Indiana claimed to verbal commitments from offensive linemen over the weekend.
The first is David Kaminski, a 6-foot-4, 275-pounder from Strongsville (Ohio) High School. He chose Indiana over offers from Duke, Toledo, Bowling Green and Ball State. The second is Gregory Lewis, a 6-foot-5, 300-pounder from Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade Madonna High School. He picked IU over Florida Atlantic, Florida International and Massachusetts.
