• Hoosiers advance in NCAA tournament after four year absence

    March 16, 2012 No comments

    Jordan Hulls went on a second-half shooting spree and finished with 22 points, and fourth-seeded Indiana rolled to an impressive 79-66 win over New Mexico State in the second round of the South Regional on Thursday night.

    Making its return after a four-year tournament absence, the Hoosiers (26-8) picked up their first tournament win since beating Gonzaga in 2007 on a night their main stars – Cody Zeller and Christian Watford – did the heavy lifting in the opening minutes then watched Hulls and others carry the load.

    Hulls shot 8 of 12, including 7 of 8 in the second half. Zeller, Watford and Will Sheehey all finished with 14 points. The Hoosiers will face upstart No. 12 seed VCU in Saturday’s third round.

    Wendell McKines led No. 13 seed New Mexico State (26-10) with 15 points.
