Great win. Some things to think about it:
- We had 8 steals. Indiana had 2. People undervalue steals. Think about it this way...... we took 6 more shots than them just on the steal differential. Craft had 4 and Scott had the other 4. You can almost say a steal equals a point and with that in mind, you got to think we'll see more minutes go Scott's way.
- We had 7 blocks compared to their 4. Subtle, but significant.
- 12 turnovers for IU to only 7 for us. This was HUGE. Again Ross with 2 turnovers in 13 minutes while Scott had 0. Again....another datapoint for Scott getting more PT.
- Thomas led both teams with 8 boards. Amir and Ravenel combined for 10. It was huge when we get Zeller with 2 fouls allowing us to roll with Ravenel who had 8 points compared to Amir's 0.
- Overall we outrebounded them 34-28. On misses, OSU got 28% of their misses back compared to 22% for Indiana. With a smaller lineup going most of the game, that's impressive.
While we played great offensively tonight, kudos to the defense and rebounding....

Nice post Benny. A lot of good numbers there. The steals were unbelievable. Scott and Craft cause so much havoc and Craft looked so confident offensively as did Thompson in the 1st half. A lot of contributions tonight outside of DT which is what we have all been waiting for.
I thought DT and Q, our two weakest defenders, both played well on the defensive end. Especially DT, he was about as active as I've seen him on the defensive end. I remember Q having a big block or two.
The CHASE is on...
