Will Sheehey had two options when he grabbed the loose ball: back it out and play for the final shot of regulation, or take the open jumper.
Indiana coach Tom Crean wanted the Hoosiers to be aggressive on Saturday, and Sheehey was paying attention.
The sophomore forward made a 15-footer from the baseline with 12.7 seconds left after a shot was blocked right to him, and the fourth-seeded Hoosiers beat 12th-seeded VCU 63-61 on Saturday to reach the NCAA tournament’s round of 16 for the first time in a decade.
Welcome back Indiana.
Kentucky looks scary, but Indiana can beat them in Sweet 16 if they run the picket fence for Jimmy Chitwood.—

No NCAA upsets yesterday. 3 big 10 teams already in sweet 16. Wisconsin and Indiana barely made it. Hope games more exciting today—
