Indiana No. 1

February 27, 2013 by  

Indiana No. 1, Minnesota got to every loose ball, every offensive rebound and was simply tougher than Indiana on Tuesday night.

The numbers will back that up. The Golden Gophers manhandled the top-ranked Hoosiers in a 77-73 victory at Williams Arena that ended with the fans storming the court.

Minnesota had 23 offensive rebounds. It scored 40 points in the paint. The Gophers had 21 second-chance points. The list of domination goes on and on.

IU coach Tom Crean said his team suffered a physical letdown.

“It wasn’t so much the toughness though that was a part of it,” Crean said. “We weren’t physical enough. We didn’t create the first hit. There were too many times when that shot went up and they were there before we were because we weren’t into their bodies.”

Indiana had some individual breakdowns, too.
