Defense and reverse layup abilities are fine, however.

Sheehey continues to be a spark plug off the bench. He reads a give-and-go perfectly to get a steal, and then takes it the rest of the way for a layup. IU leads 36-32 in the closing seconds of the half.

Just need to learn to eventually integrate the team and play well together.
Hulls shoots the best, along with CW but they need to get the whole team involved.
Indiana up 36-32 at the half. Pace slowed a bit once both teams stopped shooting blinding percentages from behind the 3-point line.
Crean on the zone: "It was at times, but other times, we were just letting them get shots." Says the Hoosiers need to extend and rotate better.
"It's an epic battle man, in November. It's great."
Zeller needs a few big ten specials to bulk up a bit.
Teams shot a combined 14-of-24 behind the 3-point line that half (IU was 6-of-10). Hoosiers hit 4-of-6 free throws, G'Town missed its only attempt there.
Hoosiers shooting 13-of-27 from the field, but eFG is 59.3.
Oladipo leads Hoosiers with nine, Zeller has eight and Hulls and Watford each six.
Following an excellent semifinal against UCLA, Starks has 11 points to lead all scorers. Only one in double figures.
Zeller has four rebounds.
IU has 10 assists on its 13 baskets.
0 playing a bit better now.
Teams combining to shoot 25-for-54 (.463). In last night's game, IU and Georgia combined to shoot just less than .400.
Markel Starks leads all scorers with 11, but didn't do a whole lot in the last eight or 10 minutes of the first half.
Oladipo leads IU with nine points, and the Hoosier bench has contributed just five points. Bench contributions in the second half might be something to watch. Hollowell has struggled to hang on to the ball, and Abell has made just one of his three shots.
Yogi much more agressive tonight. Great to see. Hollowell on the other hand...yikes.
Just need to tighten that defense up like they did at the end of the half. Zone working well
He's stronger than he looks. Not playing like it enough so far this season though.
Hollowell finding out how much better high-level college basketball is. He just needs a little more focus on patience, composure, ball security.
And yes, the zone is working well.
I'm just being snarky. After a few more games they should work the flows and lineups pretty much into line.
He's been oddly lacking control at times this season. It's early, obviously, but body control was a big plus for him as a freshman. Not sure if people are getting into his body more than he let them a year ago or what, and the illness hasn't helped. I guess what I'd say is I think he's stronger than he looks, but I'm not sure he's playing like it enough.
Same starters for IU out of the half, IU back into man-to-man.
Sounds dumb, but Zeller needs to show the contact when a player drives his shoulder down like that.
IU players are biting on shot fakes a bunch tonight. As Bob Knight said once or twice last night, the shot fake is one of the best offensive weapons a player can use.
Watford a man for the big moments. Huge three in transition. IU up 44-39 at the under-16 timeout, 15:13 left in the half. Hoosiers are answering every time Georgetown tries to bring the game level.
Finally home with a cold beer and watching the game!
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
That was a foul, methinks.
huge call there.
You've arrived to a great one.
Mikael Hopkins playing well down low, but commits his fourth foul (or at least, a foul is called on him), and he sits. Big Blow to Georgetown, as the big fella has really started to play well in this game after being quiet in recent games.
I like the 10 second delay on the charge call there
Problem for Indiana, with Sheehey and Hollowell both playing poorly. That's IU's post depth right there. Georgetown now up one at the under-12 timeout. 45-44 Hoyas at 11:32.
