Victor Oladipo drained this 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down in the final minute and No. 1 seeded Indiana survived tough Temple, 58-52. The Hoosiers trailed the entire second half until the final two minutes. Christian Watford perhaps saved the season when he made this incredible block with Temple clinging to a 2-point lead. The Owls didn’t score again, and Indiana closed the game on a 10-0 run.
Khalif Wyatt was incredible for Temple, scoring 31 points (12-of-24). His teammates weren’t much help though – they were a combined 9-for-38 and 0-12 from 3-point range.
Indiana will play Syracuse in the Sweet 16. The Big Ten is now 10-1 in the NCAA tournament and has four teams (Michigan State, Michigan, Ohio State) in the Sweet 16.
