Indiana falls to the unranked Minnesota Golden Tubby's
Indiana left the comfort of Assembly Hall and found themselves on the losing end of a hard fought game by Minnesota. Despite the best efforts of Tom Crean and a poor attempt by Will Sheehey to draw a flagrant foul late in the game, the Golden Gophers defeat a #1 ranked team for the first time since they defeated #1 Illinois in 1989.
It's always nice to see Tom Crean and the Hoosiers lose, but it's bitter sweet to see Tubby Smith be the one to hand them a loss and show that Indiana isn't a shoe in to make the Final Four like some would have you believe. Indiana is good, don't get me wrong, but every time I've seen them play this season National Champions isn't what came to mind.
