We'll be here all night, with one programming note: We're expecting site outage related to necessary network maintenance around 1 a.m. EST. The maintenance won't need more than an hour to take, and could actually wind up taking a lot less time, but we will have a brief period of down time, and we wanted y'all to be ready for it.
In the meantime, we will be here, chatting IU basketball as per usual. Stay with us!

Isiah Thomas, per ESPN, was four games into his college career the last time IU and Georgetown played.
Indeed, if you just joined us, there has been no movement on a decision as to the eligibility of Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Peter Jurkin, whose appeal was heard today. Linked below is our timeline of events to report today.
Inside Indiana provides you as-they-happen updates on todays appeal to the NCAA.
An interesting day, all over the college sports world. Rutgers gets added to the Big Ten, all the Jurkin/Perea hubbub and now we're watching Butler absolutely take it to No. 9 North Carolina. And we thought that buzzer-beater against Marquette last night was the best Butler performance we'd see from Maui.

Per Nathan Brown of the IDS, IU fans still the majority tonight at the Barclays Center, even with the more local Georgetown fanbase. Not surprising, really.
We also saw a bunch of people tweeting earlier that there was almost nobody there earlier for Georgia-UCLA.
Tipoff moved back to 10:05 to account for the UNC-Butler game.
Hulls is matched up with Georgetown's leading scorer Greg Whittington, and Whittington takes it inside for an easy layup to start the scoring.
Hulls answers with a three of his own.
IU leads 5-4 after Oladipo slams one home.
Zeller hits a runner for his first basket on his first shot, and then draws a foul from Mikael Hopkins. That kind of start could be big for Zeller, to get the game rolling in a good direction for him. He got in foul trouble early against Georgia.
And, of course, Hulls hits his second three in as many tries. IU is tied 10-10.
Feels almost like Indiana just needs to weather Georgetown's first punch here. Hoyas hitting on all cylinders.
This stretch of play is what makes Indiana a Final Four contender — so many different weapons and ways to attack, any defense and from all over the floor. Oladipo, Hulls, Zeller all strong early. This is gonna be a fun game y'all.
Everyone was worried about Hulls having to guard a 6-foot-8 opponent, but Ferrell's man, Markel Starks, is the one killing IU early.
He has eight points, and is 2-for-2 from behind the arc. Oladipo has seven points early for IU.
18-17 IU with 11:58 left. Pace clearly favoring Hoosiers. Georgetown looks like a top-15 team at worst.
Creek called for a weak foul there.
Abell can't go under screens guarding Starks. Just can't.
Hoosiers defending quite poorly on the perimeter right now.
Teams a combined 9-of-15 from behind the arc so far. This is fun. Now, 10-of-16, Smith-Rivera.
Crikey, 11-of-17. Watford two in a row.
Hollowell really sloppy with the basketball right now. Again finding out the difference between Bryant and Georgetown.
Under-8 timeout finds us at 28-all between Indiana and Georgetown. Teams have hit 11 combined 3-pointers. Pace favors Indiana heavily right now. Hoosiers need more from their zone defense.
I feel like I'm watching an IU football game. I can hardly keep up with the action. Each team 10-for-19 from the floor right now, and there's been just one free throw thus far (Zeller's and-1).
10-0 IU run. Again, Georgetown's first punch ...
Zeller playing point, drives, kicks out to Abell for a three. What can't he do?
10-0 run for IU as the Hoosiers lead, 33-26.
Under-4 timeout finds IU up 33-26 and taking control a little bit. Get the feeling the Hoosiers weathered Georgetown's first punch, and the zone has slowed their offense significantly. Hoosiers finally finding their level from behind the arc.
Zeller still needs to work more on catching the ball in the post. His hands are not always sure.
Something's not right about Sheehey's shot right now. His free-throw shooting and jumper both just look off.
