II. As Indiana pushes the ball up the court before half, Sheehey looks for the ball on the left wing. But Victor Oladipo goes right:


And passes to Christian Watford. Watford swings it to Derek Elston:


Elston then swings it to Sheehey in the corner and sets a ball screen for him:


Sheehey takes it and curls into the lane once more. He starts to turn the corner on Sandi Marcius:


With Johnson backing down and not meeting Sheehey, he’s able to get the shot off with littleĀ resistanceĀ for the score:

    OK, crazy story. I celebrated Valentines Day with my wife and two other couples by going out to a nice restaurant that just opened up a few months ago. This was a big deal because I live in Palestine, TX, a town of 18,000 people with not a lot of choices. Anyway, the dinner was great, service was great and we all around had a good time which you could tell by the 3 hours we were there and all the empty wine bottles. Anyway, the owner/chef came out and we applauded him and his wife, the bartender. We get to talking and we mention that we are from Indiana. The wife immediately asks if we are Hoosiers fans. I dare her to find a bigger one in Texas than me. That’s when the Husband says that we are talking to Will Sheehey’s mom! I am immediately in disbelief and start grilling her about where Will went to HS, who was on his team, siblings and she nails all the questions and it finally sinks in that it is really her. I was so fired up, it made my night. You have to understand that no one in in Texas cares about basketball. UT fans don’t even know when the NCAA tournament starts. So, not only did I finally find not only a basketball fan, an IU fan, but I found Will Sheehey’s mom! Then, the next day Will goes on to have a career game….Awesome. I just wish I could afford to go there every night before a game.

    Great story..and in Palestine TX to boot! Will is so good coming off screens and going to the hole..I don’t want him to fall in love with the 3-ball Tuesday night. His D will be important also. Win this one for Mom!:)

  • Sheehey is the heartbeat of this squad.
    Yogi is the steering wheel.
    Cody is the horse.
    Hulls is the dagger.
    Watford is the the wild card.
    Oladipo is the spark plug.
    Cream is the brains of course.
    I could keep this up. All together you hopefully have a national title, and a horribly mixed metaphor.
    Tuesday will be epic. A ride through hellfire. The cruicible. Where the buck stops. Sometimes I just like to see my typing.

    WS is great at moving without the ball, whether he is looking to receive a pass or set a screen. Always looking to attack, and always has high energy

    Gotta love Sheehey. Congrats on a fabulous effort. Great player who’s getting better and better and who brings guts and fire to our squad. Check out some of his tweets. They’re pretty hilarious. This guy’s got no shortage of bravado and confidence. Love it. Keep it up Will. To banner #6!
