Assembly Hall and the Hoosiers were ready to fight in the first half. While Kentucky tried out a zone, IU nearly shot the lights out and matched Kentucky blow-for-blow. Maruice Creeks had 17 points and Indiana made an insane number of jump shots.
But in the second half, the Hoosiers didn’t find the same love. Their shooting game went somewhere else when Kentucky decided to talk man-to-man on defense. And the Wildcats break up the happy home at Assembly Hall by the score of 90-73.
Sad times for the Hoosiers. Maybe they should talk to Sampson? (Thanks to Will for the link.)
