Indiana's opponents know all about juniors Neil Reed and Andrae Patterson. Now they have to worry about freshman A.J. Guyton, too. Guyton scored 21 points to lead the No. 12 Hoosiers to a 73-44 victory over Louisiana Tech in the first round of the Indiana Classic in Bloomington. Patterson added 12 points and seven rebounds. Reed was held to three points. The Hoosiers (8-1) will play Santa Clara, a 90-80 winner over Eastern Illinois, in tonight's championship game. "He wasn't the only guy that concerned us," Louisiana Tech coach Jim Wooldridge said of Guyton.

When the NCAA Tournament pairings were announced last Sunday, CBS's Jim Nantz looked at the brackets and pronounced a possible East Regional matchup between Temple and Indiana the "most alluring" second-rounder. In other words, a ratings bonanza. John Chaney vs. Bob Knight. Two of the so-called "bad boys" of the coaching fraternity. And, no, it isn't best two out of three falls at midcourt. The Hoosiers (20-8), who had lost three of their last five, advanced with a convincing, 84-72 win over an Ohio University team that had won 13 straight.

Indiana fans greeted new Hoosiers coach Kelvin Sampson with a standing ovation. His next job is to keep them on their feet. Sampson promised to keep Indiana's tradition intact by doing three things: graduating players, running a clean program and winning titles. "I came to Indiana for one reason: I think you can win championships at Indiana," Sampson said yesterday. Sampson, who coached at Oklahoma for 12 seasons, signed a 7-year deal that pays an average of $1.5 million annually.

Michigan doesn't have a wide body like Robert Traylor anymore. Still, the Wolverines found enough gritty post play to stun Indiana again. Louis Bullock scored 20 points, but Josh Asselin had 16 points and 10 rebounds - his first double-double - as host Michigan held off the 13th-ranked Hoosiers for an 82-70 victory last night. "If we step up and play aggressive in the front court, we can play with anybody," said Asselin, who fouled out with 1:53 remaining. "I was going to do whatever I had to do to help us win. " With the 300-pound Traylor waiting for the NBA lockout to end, the Wolverines rotate Asselin, Peter Vignier and Brandon Smith down low in their three-guard offense.

Indiana went small and came up big. Neil Reed scored 20 points and A.J. Guyton added 15 and grabbed a game-saving rebound in the final seconds last night as the 21st-ranked Hoosiers held off No. 13 Michigan, 72-70, at Bloomington, Ind. "Our play, our attitude, everything was totally different than the past couple of weeks," said freshman guard Michael Lewis, who had 10 points and four assists. "We had to win this game. We had to play with enthusiasm. " Forced to a three-guard lineup because of the absence of injured forward Andrae Patterson and the foul trouble of center Jason Collier, Indiana used its quickness and the shooting of Reed, Guyton and Lewis to build a 15-point lead midway through the second half.

VICTOR OLADIPO shook off a sprained ankle to help lift top-ranked Indiana. Oladipo's go-ahead putback, dunk and free throws in the final minute lifted the visiting Hoosiers to a 72-68 win over No. 4 Michigan State on Tuesday night, the Hoosiers' first road win in 18 tries against the Spartans. "It was a huge win for us," Oladipo said. "We've come a long way. " Visiting Indiana (24-3, 12-2 Big Ten) broke a first-place tie in the conference and moved a step closer toward earning top seeding next month in the NCAA Tournament.

Rick Majerus thought his Utah team could beat No. 11 Indiana coming into the Maui Invitational. He still thought it when the Utes were saddled by foul trouble. He was really proud when they did. "We rode some emotion. It was a very hard-fought game and our guys played especially hard," Majerus said last night after the Utes beat the Hoosiers, 77-72, in the opening round of the eight-team tournament in Lahaina, Hawaii. "We had foul trouble and I tried some Mickey Mouse zones and things to stem the bleeding but I was just so proud of the way our guys stayed in there and played down the stretch.

Indiana needed a third chance to finally beat Maryland. Eight months after losing to the Terrapins in the national championship game and minutes after having a potential game-winning midcourt heave by Steve Blake waved off, the 10th-ranked Hoosiers beat No. 9 Maryland, 80-74, in overtime last night in Indianapolis in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. For much of the game, it looked like a replay of April's championship. Indiana relied on its outside shooting and struggled. Maryland (4-1)

Indiana won the battle, and it was a war. William Gladness hit a pair of tiebreaking free throws late in the second half as No. 17 Indiana beat No. 18 Utah, 52-49, last night to reach the final of the Maui Invitational in Lahaina, Hawaii. "Neither team backed down. Neither team scored a lot," Indiana coach Bob Knight said. "It was really a hard, tough-fought basketball game. There were no cheap points.

The LSU basketball team is going back to Louisiana - but to the campus in Baton Rouge, not the Final Four in New Orleans. The Tigers yesterday lost a chance for a triumphal return to their home state when Indiana's Rick Calloway deposited an air ball by Daryl Thomas with 7 seconds left, giving the Hoosiers a 77-76 victory in the Midwest Regional final at the Riverfront Coliseum. Louisiana State, the region's No. 10 seed, had knocked off Georgia Tech, Temple and DePaul in a strong bid to reach the Final Four for the second straight season.

STATE COLLEGE - Certainly Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg has always looked the part. As Nittany Lions defensive coordinator Bob Shoop said during the team's Media Day yesterday, "Clearly, he's right out of central casting. " Great-looking kid, Shoop noted. And prototypical size, at 6-4, 228. But there were times last year when Hackenberg appeared ill-suited to the role, after being named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year in 2013. And there are questions now about where his career is headed as he approaches his junior season, which begins Sept.

STATE COLLEGE - At all his weekly news conferences, Penn State coach James Franklin announces the offensive, defensive and special-teams players of the week, as selected by him and his staff. This week, running back Akeel Lynch was the choice for the offensive honors, and with good reason. Lynch, a redshirt sophomore, broke out like many expected him to finally do, tallying 130 rushing yards on 18 carries for a touchdown and an impressive 7.2 yards per carry. Fellow running back Bill Belton also contributed 92 yards and a TD on 19 carries.

STATE COLLEGE - Penn State's defense did what it was supposed to do: The defensive ends pressured and contained the edge, the defensive tackles shed blocks without much issue, and the linebackers identified and filled any open gaps. This isn't new; the Nittany Lions have been nearly impenetrable all season long. But to do it against arguably the nation's top rusher and not allow themselves to get complacent on a single play was further evidence that this defense is elite.

STATE COLLEGE - Penn State's defense has done the same thing every game this year, and its formula won't change against Indiana this weekend. "We've got to stop the run and make them one-dimensional," Penn State defensive tackle Austin Johnson said. The Nittany Lions will have their hands full trying to halt the Hoosiers' rushing attack tomorrow in Bloomington, but they shouldn't worry about making Indiana's offense one-dimensional - because it already is. The Hoosiers have 35 total passing yards in their last two games.

Arizona is No. 1 in the Associated Press men's college basketball poll for the fifth consecutive week, and another Wildcats team, Villanova, moved back into the top 10. Duke, which lost at Notre Dame, dropped to No. 16, the first time the Blue Devils have been out of the top 10 since December 2007. The Arizona Wildcats (15-0) were a runaway No. 1, with Syracuse, Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Michigan State remaining as the next four teams. Arizona received 60 first-place votes from the national media panel, while Syracuse (14-0)

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - After taking one look at Indiana's Swiss-cheese rush defense, the thought was that Penn State would batter the Hoosiers with its ground game, pass occasionally to keep them honest, and leave Memorial Stadium with its 17th victory in 17 tries over the home team. But this Big Ten opener for both teams didn't work out the way the Nittany Lions felt it would. Indiana's front seven was far better than anticipated. The visitors struggled to find consistency in all areas - defense and special teams as well as offense.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana already knew what Allen Robinson could do. Penn State's all-Big Ten receiver caught 10 passes against the Hoosiers last year at Beaver Stadium for 197 yards and three touchdowns. No matter what they tried Saturday, the Hoosiers found Robinson unstoppable once again. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound junior grabbed 12 passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns in the Nittany Lions' 44-24 loss. Robinson caught touchdown passes of 46 and 26 yards from freshman Christian Hackenberg.

Indiana coach Kevin Wilson had a chance to watch a lot of film during his team's off week. It's clear he liked what he saw from Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg, the true freshman that the Hoosiers will face on Saturday in the Big Ten opener for both teams. "From afar when I watch, you just look at body language, and he's a very mature kid that doesn't appear to get rattled," Wilson said Monday at his weekly news conference in Bloomington, Ind., site of Saturday's contest.

DAYTON, Ohio - Scootie Randall sat at the podium and stared at the box score. He knew full well that no matter how long he peered, the numbers were not going to change. Still, he couldn't divert his eyes. Randall missed every shot he took, but going 0-for-12 wasn't what was eating him up the most. It was the final score indicating Indiana had beaten Temple, 58-52, to deny the Owls, a No. 9 seed, what would have been the biggest NCAA Tournament upset in school history. "I've had days like this," said Randall, a senior.

Who's hot Indiana guard Victor Oladipo is arguably the best player in the country. The 6-foot-5 junior was named the national player of the year by the Sporting News. He is averaging 13.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.2 steals. Who's not Temple post player Anthony Lee's statistics have taken a hit since he suffered a concussion in a March 15 game against Massachusetts. The 6-9 redshirt sophomore was limited to eight minutes in the Owls' 76-72 second-round win over North Carolina State on Friday.
