Take care of the ball, get out of the zone, we should be fine. The zone has been solid previously, but doesn't work as well against a team like this
Watford and Sheehey clearly the offensive stars of the first half. It's Sheehey's first double-digit scoring performance since Jan. 23 against Penn State.
Just like they did against Michigan, the Hoosiers had a bit of a problem with turnovers in the first half, but were able to overcome it. Because let's face it, IU is quite a bit better than Illinois, even in Champaign.

When Indiana is sloppy, it hurts. It's that simple. Illinois within six.

mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Jordan Hulls is the ultimate bailout player. His shooting can cancel out mistakes quickly.
Under-16 timeout. Illini more crisp defensively out of the locker room, but can they sustain? Hoosiers making some bad mental mistakes again.
Under-12 timeout finds Illinois hanging around dangerously, down 10 and not willing to let the deficit grow far beyond that. Hoosiers need to tighten up defensively and close this game out.
55-45 Indiana, 11:50 left in the game.
Why Hanner and not Elston there?
Hanner with a block, thats why
That turnover is as much on Zeller as it is on Ferrell. Bailed on the screen way, way too soon. Hoosiers need to figure out how to kill this game off.
Elston also still getting his legs back. He's playing more, but the time off has cost him game minutes.
Yogi is getting better, but a lot to learn. Trying to force a transition play when it isn't there.
The Louisville zone would eat this offense alive.
And IU is only up six. Hoosiers can't kill this game off and now it's a two possession game.
Illinois isn't going away. No lead is safe with how hot Paul and Richardson can get. The thing is, they can get just as cold, too.
And the Illini defense can't stop IU when the Hoosiers' ball movement is working.

Hoosiers need to use the free-throw line to kill this game off now.
Under-8 timeout. Hoosiers about to hit the line for two shots from Sheehey. Indiana hasn't played vintage ball tonight, and Illinois has definitely shown more fight than it has in previous blowout losses this Big Ten season, but if the Hoosiers knock down the free ones, this game is in the books.
69-61 Indiana, 3:33 left.
They've been doing it the past few games...we'll see if they continue to do so.
wow thats a lot of wasted space behind the student section
Jordan has to shoot that 3 and not drive IMO
Scary sequence there, when a trio of Hoosiers knock a rebound away from each other into Illinois' hands. Luckily, Watford is in position and forces a miss. We've seen IU knock rebounds away from itself a couple times tonight. Need to be vocal.
Jordan Hulls sometimes thinks too much. Take the shot that's meant for you, and that's a wide-open 3-pointer.
Hoosiers simply haven't killed this game off, and they're paying for it. Richardson back to back threes cut the game to two points, 70-68.
