6. 10. 12. Want to know what those numbers signify? The win totals for one of college basketball’s elite programs in 2009, 2010, 2011. Well have no fear Bloomington, the Hoosiers are here. After winning 27 games last season in which they defeated three top five teams at the friendly, or not so friendly (for opponents) confines of Assembly Hall, Tom Crean seems to have brought Indiana basketball all the way back from the dead.

53-41. Not your average National Championship game, huh?
In a wild college basketball season in which there has been no clear cut best team, it has finally come to an end, an ugly end in fact. The Connecticut Huskies won their third National Championship Monday night, grinding it out against the feisty Butler Bulldogs in a low scoring, cold shooting battle. You simply do not expect games like this in the National Championship. Continue reading
