Oladipo scores eight of 10 points in a 10-0 run that pushes IU to a 21-16 lead.
Serious question: At what point do we consider him a legitimate Big Ten Player of the Year candidate?

Indiana beeds to get some room right here. Getting great looks and Iowa missing a lot
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Really hope IU closes this 4 mins on a nice run to get some breathing room
Watford plays good defense, then finds himself open for a three, which he hits. IU up 29-20.

Consider it considered. Started thinking about it after the Butler game, actually.
He has to be up there. Its crazy how well he has played and how much he changes the game.
Yogi needs to finish that.
It must be the angle on TV, but it looked like Ferrell just passed up an open layup to get the ball to Sheehey on the perimeter. Odd.
Haha was saying the same thing.
Wow, what a take by Ferrell.
Followed by an embarrassing fall by Oladpo.
Not a good shot at all by Yogi Ferrell. Freshman move there.
What the hell was that by Yogi?
A rare freshman moment for him, I suppose. Even he looked confused after that shot, maybe asking for a foul.
So Indiana shot less than 39 percent from the floor, struggled through foul trouble and still leads by eight on the road at Iowa. Watford and Oladipo each have eight, and Yogi Ferrell has six points, five rebounds and two assists. If his teammates had hit some of the open looks he's been creating, he'd be a legit triple-double threat going into the second half.
All in all, could have been much worse for IU. 33-25 at halftime at Iowa.
IU leads 33-25 at the half, a little larger margin than I expected. Oladipo has played dazzling defense on Roy Devyn Marble...Iowa's top scoring threat is 0-for-8 from the floor, but is still 6-for-6 from the line.
That's one of the concerning points for IU: fouls and foul shots. Zeller, Hulls and Perea all have two fouls. I thought Oladipo had two, but the CBS GameTracker says otherwise. Anyway, Iowa is 8-for-11 from the line, while IU has shot (and made) just two foul shots.
Watford is playing aggressive and well right now, and he and Oladipo each have eight points. Aaron White, who scored six points in what seemed like a 30-second span, leads all scorers with nine.
Devyn Marble is 0-of-8 for six points so far today. Again, at what point does Victor Oladipo enter Big Ten Player of the Year contention?
Cody needs to learn how to play with a target on his back
Hulls really needed that to go down. Iowa isn't just going to not score for 40 minutes.
Everytime I think Yogi will shoot he passes
Great move by Zeller to finish
Zeller's got seven points in just more than two minutes, and has drawn two fouls. IU leads 40-31.
Cody Zeller has awakened, it seems. Far more determined and focused in the second half.
And no, Iowa fans, Tyler is not better.
Watford's movement and court sense today are as good and helpful as his shooting. Best he's played offensively in awhile.
