In its blowout win against Minnesota on Friday night, Indiana’s passing led the charge on offense. The Hoosiers continued to find the open man again and again, assisting on 21 of their 30 made baskets.
In the second half, the Hoosiers went to ball screen and pick-and-roll action several times on the right wing and continued to exploit the Golden Gophers.
