Cody Zeller scores 17, No. 1 Indiana beats Georgetown 82-72 in OT
After Greg Whittington’s layup, Zeller was fouled in the lane and made both free throws with 1:18 left that appeared to put the game away before Georgetown made two quick 3s.
With about eight minutes to go, the 7-foot preseason All-America passed to Ferrell for a layup attempt on which he was fouled and made both throws. Then with 5:42 left, he passed out of a double team in the paint to find Will Sheehey for a dunk that electrified the crowd and gave Indiana a six-point lead.
Indiana finished 11 of 17 on 3-pointers and Georgetown made 11 of 26.
The first half was a wild, back-and-forth affair during which both teams combined to shoot 14 for 24 on 3-pointers. Remy Abell made a 3-pointer with 4:22 remaining before halftime to give the Hoosiers a seven-point lead, but the Hoyas answered with a 3 by Whittington, and Indiana led 36-32 at the break.
Zeller surpassed his scoring and rebounding totals from the night before by halftime.
Hoosiers fans made Brooklyn into Big Ten territory days after the conference welcomed Maryland and Rutgers, in a move seen to appeal to East Coast television markets, including the nation’s largest in New York.
Crimson-and-cream-clad revelers began arriving during UCLA’s dull win over Georgia in the consolation game, and by the 10 p.m. tipoff, were roaring. Georgetown fans were outnumbered, but still managed to hoot and shout to make themselves heard over the din.
The game ended well after midnight, but plenty of fans remained for the brief trophy presentation and lingered while Crean shook hands with those he could reach from the tunnel.
