Hoosier Headlines for January 18, 2010: coverage of IU's win over Minnesota.

  • Jones helps IU rally in overtime (The Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne, Ind.)
    "For the second time in conference play this season, the Hoosiers saw a double-digit lead slip away. Minnesota (12-6, 3-3) rallied from 15 down to force overtime. But unlike the Jan. 9 game against Illinois, where the Illini fought back from 15 points to win 66-60, IU had enough left to make a charge of its own."

    "You can trust your defense and you can play the strategies, but frankly I didn't want to have us have to inbound it again to come down the court," Crean said. "That played into my mind as well."

  • Reason to celebrate (Post-Tribune)
    "If I was a fan, going through what they have the last few years, I would have wanted to rush the court, too," freshman forward Christian Watford said.

    "We got ourselves back into the game, so it was just very disappointing to lose," said Minnesota coach Tubby Smith, whose Gophers (12-6, 3-3) also have lost Big Ten road games at Purdue and Michigan State. "But you've got to compliment Indiana and Tom Crean, he had his team ready to play."

    Remember the blown 15-point lead to Illinois eight days earlier at Assembly Hall? The Hoosiers did and then forgot it. "You don’t want to think like that or it will happen again," Jones said. "My stomach was sick for two days after we lost that game. We didn’t want that to happen again."

    "We thought we were ready," Smith said. "When you're on the road, you have to fight through some of the adversity you might have by not making shots. Guys weren't shooting the ball well, and obviously, we weren't rebounding the ball well."

  • Hoosiers hoodwink Gophers (StarTribune.com)
    "While the Gophers made an impressive run to reach overtime, the Hoosiers relied on heart and momentum sustained by an announced home crowd of 17,017 to pull out the victory."
