Hoop, there it is

I know, I know, we’re becoming a regular movie house over here.

But this was a pretty insane (and infuriating for us Hoosier fans) shooting display from Iowa’s Justin Johnson. (Via Storminspank’s Hawkeye Ramblings)

Chances are you didn’t see it because of the f-ing Big Ten Network.

No. 11 Indiana ended up winning, 79-76, and it was good to see a W result from the first conference action of the season, but how pathetic is that Indiana defense? I’ve said it before and I’ll continue to say it, Kelvin Sampson is a sidestep from Mike Davis.

Elsewhere in college hoops:

Kent State 61, No. 1 North Carolina 90: In a final tuneup before ACC play, North Carolina cruised to another blowout. Kent State cut the lead to 10 right before half before a quick Tar Heel transition basket that destroyed any momentum the Golden Flashes had built. Hansbrough had a pedestrian (for him) 25.

Akron 81, No. 20 Dayton 83 (2OT): The Flyers found out pretty quickly what a bitch that first week in the top 25 can be, having to go long (twice) to beat the Zips. London Warren had 6 points in the second overtime, including a clutch free throw to help extend the Dayton win streak to 11 games.

Sleeper of the week — UMass

Houston 89, Massachusetts 95: The Minutemen trailed by 11 at half, but moved to 6-0 at home and 11-2 overall with 19 from Gary Forbes and Etienne Brower’s 17 second-half points. UMass has won 6 in a row, has wins over Syracuse, Boston College and Toledo and will travel to No. 15 Vanderbilt on Saturday.
