Indiana's NCAA Tournament chances appear to be down to a single scenario.
Indiana has to win the 2014 Big Ten Tournament which begins in Indianapolis next Thursday. IU will have to win four games in four days to pull off the feat.
That reality came about Wednesday night when the Hoosiers lost to Nebraska 70-60 on Senior Night at Assembly Hall.
It also marked the second year in a row that Indiana has dropped its Senior Night game. Last year, the Hoosiers lost to Ohio State.
Indiana (17-13, 7-10 Big Ten) played for the second game in a row with freshman forward Noah Vonleh. Vonleh has an inflamed foot.
Indiana never led in the game but came close on several occasions in the second half.
Nebraska built its lead to 11 early in the second half before the Hoosiers went on a 17-6 run to tie it at 52-all with 10:06 to play. IU scored the final eight points in that run to tie it with Sheehey's 3-pointer getting the Hoosiers even.
But Indiana could never quite get over the hump. IU had chance after chance to hit shots to take the lead but nothing would fall.
IU only trailed by one at 59-58 with 2:29 to play after Williams saved a ball on the baseline and Devin Davis picked it up and scored.But Nebraska came right and knocked down a pick-and-pop 3-pointer by Walter Pitchford to put the lead back up to four at 62-58.
Nebraska (18-11, 10-7) picked up a big win to increase its NCAA Tournament chances.
