Indiana had a huge win on Wednesday night against North Carolina, but it came at the expense of losing OG Anunoby late in the game.
Anunoby’s status is uncertain, and injury for that matter, is unknown following the game. However, Tom Crean speculated that it was a high-ankle sprain.

Anunoby poured in 16 points for Indiana, the last two coming on a fast break dunk. However, the injury occurred while landing from said dunk as the sophomore appeared to roll his ankle.
The good news is the Hoosiers have 16 days until their next non-buy game when they take on Butler at the Crossroads Classic. The bad news is we saw how bad the team can look sans-Anunoby in their lost to IPFW.
