Indiana basketball pulled out a wild 80-77 win on Saturday over Notre Dame in overtime to notch the Hoosiers’ first big win of the Archie Miller era. The way the Hoosiers took the final lead is going to be remembered for a while in the Crossroads Classic.
After falling behind 77-74 with 18 seconds left, Indiana had a chance to tie the score on its next possession after Juwan Morgan drew a foul after making a layup to cut the Irish lead to 1. Morgan missed, but Zach McRoberts managed to corral an offensive rebound over Notre Dame star Bonzie Colson, then passed the ball to Morgan for a thunderous dunk.
Archie Madness! 😱

That 4-point sequence was the finale of a career game from Morgan, who finished with 34 points on 13-of-17 shooting and 11 rebounds. The Hoosiers came back from 10 points down multiple times during the game and needed a strong finish to force overtime.
Juwan Morgan had 34 points and 11 rebounds. He saved the game for Indiana at the end of regulation. He saved it again in overtime with a bank shot when the situation was "score or else" and won it with a dunk.
Herculean effort. #iubb
