Grantland looks at IU’s late execution vs. VCU

  • 03/19/2012 8:27 pm in Indiana’s Late-Game Go-To Play

With three minutes left in Saturday’s second-round game against VCU, Indiana was trailing by five points. The Hoosiers were struggling to get Cody Zeller, one of their best offensive weapons, any touches, and he seemingly disappeared for minutes at a time. But down the stretch, Indiana coach Tom Crean used set plays to get his star player the ball, giving way to seven points in the final minutes and a two-point, 63-61 victory. The key was a play that got Zeller the ball on the elbow.
