Indiana 58, Temple 52: Hoosiers survive, somehow.

Jason Miller

Indiana uglied it up for most of the game, but found a way to survive.

I haven't looked at a box score or a statistic or a highlight, and don't really care what IU's performance means for Thursday or beyond. IU played a game that felt like a loss for about 30 of 40 minutes but somehow pulled it out. Victor Oladipo overcame a rough day to provide an iconic moment in the final minute. Ditto Christian Watford. The Hoosiers remain well short of the ultimate goal but are in consecutive Sweet 16s for the first time in 19 years. Whew.
