Indiana narrowly escaped the Crossroads Classic on Saturday, beating Notre Dame 62-60. The Hoosiers are now 11-1 on the year with just one non-conference game left on the schedule—a home game against Arkansas in just over a week. They’ve won three in a row since forgetting to show up against Wisconsin.
1. Armaan Franklin
The freshman had quite the game in his hometown. The Cathedral alumnus not only scored a game-high 17 points, but also hit the game-winning 3-pointer:
It’s the Armaan Franklin show! His clutch three-pointer puts the Hoosiers up 62-60 with 15.7 seconds left. pic.twitter.com/EKH10uBNTp— ESPN 1380/100.9 (@ESPN1380) December 21, 2019
2. Second-half Slump
With just over 15 minutes left in the game the Hoosiers led by 17 points. That obviously didn’t last as 10 minutes later Notre Dame took a lead. Very normal, very good.
3. Are the Hoosiers any good?
