Very sorry to report, for those who have not seen the news already, that multiple outlets are confirming that Rick Majerus has passed away.

The folks here at Assembly Hall finally figured out that the ethernet cables for my row weren't plugged in. Finally, I've got Internet for more than 30 seconds at a time.
Oladipo again shooting well as most other struggle. He's 3-for-5 with six points at halftime. Sheehey has six off the bench, and Watford — after scoring just two points against UNC — leads with eight points. IU's shooting just 38.5 percent from the floor, but 91.7 percent from the line (11-12).
(Chad) Michael Murray leads Coppin State with seven points.

It resonates with me. Scatman Crothers best work was not in The Shining. It was in the classic "Zapped" with Willie Aames and Scott Baio
That certainly sounds like a recipe for greatness. I'll have to check that out. I actually liked him in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" just as well as in "The Shining," if not better. But Scott Baio > Jack Nicholson, as we all know.
Oladipo starts this half with a vengeance. He steals the opening pass and finishes with a dunk, and then blocks a shot on the defensive end.
Sloppiness has not left Indiana. Turnovers, lazy passes plaguing them. Zeller just picked up his fourth foul.
Seems like every time they string a couple of solid minutes together, they lose it for a few minutes after that.
That being said, Hulls just hit a three and IU's lead is 40-28 with 16 minutes left.
Under-16 timeout finds IU up 12. The urgency out of the locker room lasted about 10 seconds. Hoosiers' shooting boots still not tied up yet. Still, Coppin State isn't good enough to close the gap in any meaningful way.
Fan in the crowd holding up a sign that says, "Best team in the nation." Eh, not sure how true that is on this particular night.
Two quick IU buckets out of the timeout. 44-29 and Fang Mitchell calls time.
Defense doing the job for Indiana, which has forced turnovers on two straight possessions now.
Oladipo getting wild with the steals. He has two in the last three possessions.
Oladipo getting wild everywhere. He's got eight points in the first six minutes of the half, and 14 total.
He's taken the game over with energy at both ends. Indiana now up 22 and he's almost solely the reason why. Last few minutes have belonged to him. This is why he's an NBA prospect.
We've seen this before: Abell hits a three, opponent calls a timeout, Abell jumps up and down with huge smile on his face in the middle of the court. I think that happened in one of the first games of the season.
IU leads 53-31 with just over 13 minutes left in the game.
Crean is working the refs HARD right now. He's not happy at the way this game has been called at all, and he's not been shy about letting them know that. He would do well to be careful.
IU up 56-31 at the Under-12 timeout. This one is probably over everywhere but on the scoreboard.
Indiana doing a lot of pressing tonight, and it's working.
Here come the most lackluster flags ever. I'm expecting someone to trip and fall.
63-36 Indiana at the under-8 timeout.
Why are Hulls, Watford, Sheehey, Ferrell and Zeller your five right now? This game is beyond over.
Last TV timeout finds IU up 77-43. Bad game, class wins. Simple as that.
Line change for IU with just over two minutes to go. Abell, Etherington, Creek, Howard and Hollowell out there now.
Howard makes two buckets through fouls off the bench. This has Victor Oladipo quite excited.
Final 87-51. More coming as always.
