Rush The Court on Indiana’s Destruction of North Carolina

> So this is why Indiana garnered the #1 preseason ranking for the 2012-13 season. Despite coming into Tuesday night’s game with a 6-0 record and 32-point average margin of victory, the AP poll’s top-ranked Hoosiers had yet to produce a statement performance to legitimize their candidacy as the best squad in all of college hoops. It took overtime to dispose of previously unranked Georgetown last week, and Tom Crean’s team faced another tough test with the Tar Heels coming to town for the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Indiana did not fool around this time, easily disposing of North Carolina, 83-59, in a game that showcased a tantalizing display of offensive basketball by the Hoosiers from start to finish. All doubts about IU’s true “top-seed upside” are quelled for the time being after it ran a young-but-explosive UNC team off the floor in Bloomington by out-executing and out-smarting the Tar Heels; even in an imperfect shooting night.

The Hoosiers domination of the second half was breathtaking. As I have been saying to people all day: Indiana is *really* good.

NCAA Still Monitoring UNC’s Investigations

> When North Carolina announced in late August that the NCAA had told school officials that no NCAA rules had apparently been broken in the scandal surrounding its Afro and African-American Studies Department, it was also pretty clear it wasn’t the end of the case.

Hopefully this wraps up soon. It feels like a black cloud hanging over the Carolina basketball program, even though it seems any “scandal” was much more football related.
