Bracketology: Lunardi drops Indiana

Even after Indiana's win over UNC, the Hoosiers dropped to a No. 3 seed in Joe Lunardi's latest projection. Lunardi isn't forgetting that loss to Fort Wayne. Bracketology

Hoosiers bounce back with huge win

  • Indiana now has wins over then-No. 3 Kansas and current No. 3 UNC, despite a loss to Fort Wayne in between them.
  • Only three other teams in the AP poll era have won twice against AP top-3 teams in their first six games of a season.
  • It's the fourth time in Indiana history it has defeated two AP top-3 teams in an entire season (2011-12, 2001-02, 1975-76).
Box score: Indiana 76, UNC 67

One big matchup question heading into Indiana-UNC tonight was whether the Hoosiers would be able to keep Carolina -- which features the nation's top offensive rebounders by rate (Kennedy Meeks and Tony Bradley) and grabbed 46.6 percent of available offensive boards as a team in its first seven games -- off the glass. The Hoosiers are scoring, sure, but their 19-9 lead in the first eight minutes of the game also featured nine rebounds on the defensive end, and just one second chance for the Tar Heels.
