Sheehey sends Indiana past No. 20 Iowa, 93-86
Question of the Day
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - The signs held high in the Indiana student section during pregame introductions were appropriate: “You rank ‘em, we beat ‘em.”
And on the same night Will Sheehey was honored for joining the 1,000-point club, he scored 19 of his career-high 30 to lead the Hoosiers over No. 20 Iowa 93-86 on Thursday in a game that was postponed last week.
“These guys were just finding me in transition,” Sheehey said. “I think Yogi (Ferrell) threw two or three over-the-top passes. Really, I was scoring without the ball in my hands and these guys found me.”
Stanford Robinson had a career-best 17 points off the bench for the Hoosiers (16-12, 6-9 Big Ten), who beat a Top 25 team for the third time this year. Michigan was No. 10 when the Hoosiers topped the Wolverines on Feb. 2, and Wisconsin was ranked third when Indiana won last month.
The Hoosiers scored six straight points to take a 77-69 lead when Robinson converted a three-point play. Ferrell tossed a pass near the basket and Sheehey dunked to give Indiana an 82-73 advantage with 1:35 remaining.
“He’s playing like the Will Sheehey that everyone has come to know, love and respect over the past couple of years,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said. “Just go out and play. We need his leadership, we need his courage, we need Will to be Will.”
Indiana went on a 9-0 run in the second half, capped by a 3-pointer from Evan Gordon that gave them a 62-60 lead with 13:13 remaining.
Roy Devyn Marble had 20 points and Aaron White added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Hawkeyes (19-9, 8-7), who have lost three straight.

The game originally was slated for last week but was postponed after an 8-foot, 50-pound steel plate fell from the ceiling of Assembly Hall about 6½ hours before the scheduled start.
The plate was reinforced with four additional bolts, Indiana athletic director Fred Glass said before Thursday’s tipoff.
Three other steel plates were found to be loose and those were taken down, inspected, and reinforced to the ceiling with additional bolts as well, Glass said.
Melting snow and ice pushed water behind the steel plate, jarring it loose. Glass said the tops of the plates were shaved off, allowing more room between the ceiling and the plate itself.
The Hawkeyes had a chance to move up in the league standings with No. 22 Ohio State’s 65-63 loss at Penn State on Thursday night, and they closed the first half on a 9-0 run. Zach McCabe hit a 3-pointer and White dunked twice, including one with 1:16 left to put Iowa ahead 50-49.
Gabriel Olaseni scored on a hook shot to make it 52-49 at halftime.
