A look back at Indiana-Wisconsin

Here are five interesting things I found after watching the tape of Indiana's 75-72 win over Wisconsin from Tuesday night.

I watched back to Indiana-Wisconsin game from last night on film and charted a few different things like I have done in the past. Here are a few things I found interesting.

1. Robinson drives right ... Stan Robinson is left-handed, but he LOVES to drive the ball to his right. Five of his six field goals came on drives with his right hand, two of which he ultimately finished on the lift side after a hop step or euro step.

2. Indiana missed five easy shots ... In the first half alone. I counted five easy baskets at or near the basket, so the Hoosiers could have won this game more easily. When you consider how many great looks Yogi got and missed throughout the game, it's amazing that Indiana won this game.

3. Williams exposed by Jackson ... Troy Williams started again for Indiana on Tuesday night, but he played only eight minutes. Why? He struggled mightily on the defensive end. He gave up nine points in that short period, and could be responsible for two more because of an unnecessary switch with Noah Vonleh. He was the primary defender on Traevon Jackson to start the second half.

4. Crean message, 10-point deficit ... The moment I remember most vividly from last night's game was when Indiana fell behind 52-42 with 13:20 go go in the game. Yogi Ferrell and Noah Vonleh were on the bench. Jonny Marlin was on the floor. Tom Crean was irate. And it seemed like the game was over. But the Hoosiers slowly chipped away, eliminating the 10-point deficit with a 10-0 run in less than four minutes of game time. Here's how it happened:
**Evan Gordon jumper (44-52)
**Will Sheehey layup from Gordon (46-52)
**Stan Robinson layup, TO Wisconsin (48-52)
**Ferrell and-one on crazy jumper (50-52)
**Vonleh tip off Ferrell miss FT (52-52)
**Vonleh turnaround at 8:57 (54-52)

So Indiana's 12-0 spurt took just under five minutes. That means Wisconsin went without a point during that time, primarily because it settled for and missed 3-point shots.

5. Wisconsin had only one made FT ... and it came with only 1:08 remaining in the game on the Frank Kaminsky and-one. That's crazy. The Badgers were 1-of-4 from the line and went almost 39 minutes without making a single free throw.
