As the second half dwindled down, it looked like Minnesota was ready to pull off the upset in Assembly Hall. Indiana's transition defense had disappeared, leading to countless dunks and layups for Minnesota. At the final media timeout, Assembly Hall seemed stagnant.
But like he had done throughout the game, freshman center Thomas Bryant was ready to start a fire for Indiana, and he did just that--making the final three field goals of the game and sealing the win for the Hoosiers.
