Indiana fans rushed the court in Bloomington last week as if Christian Watford’s imitation of Jimmy Chitwood had knocked No. 1 Kentucky from March Madness. The Hoosiers had merely earned a Christmas gift.
Ho, ho, ho for IU. To witness the jubilation reminded me, in college hoops, the home team should always win. Tom Crean, to his credit, launched into praise for Hoosier fans. Their energy made the celebration possible. In a 73-72 hoedown, they were the Cream and Crimson difference.
