Hoosiers eliminated from NCAA tournament

(Continued)

BATESVILLE — “They were pretty much everywhere,” said point guard Yogi Ferrell.

Indiana’s early offensive struggles were too much to overcome, especially

when Syracuse’s Michael Carter-Williams got it going on the other end of

the floor. The Hoosiers had no answer for Carter-Williams, who scored a

game-high 24 points on 9-of-19 shooting. Carter-Williams, usually a poor

perimeter shooter, also knocked down three shots from beyond the arc.

One of the main questions about the Hoosiers entering the season was

whether small guards Ferrell and Hulls could play together in the same

backcourt. For most of the season, the answer was ‘yes.’

But on Thursday night, both guards struggled against the length of

Syracuse. Ferrell committed four first-half turnovers and found himself on

the bench to start the second half. Neither he nor Hulls scored a single

point.

Hulls was 0-of-3 from the field and had a hard time staying in front of

Brandon Triche on the defensive end. Hulls was just 7-of-31 from the field

in Indiana’s five postseason games, including 4-of-24 from beyond the arc.

“It’s a terrible way to go out,” Hulls said. “It will haunt me the rest of

my life.”

Oladipo led Indiana with 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting, and Cody Zeller

added 11 points and nine rebounds.

With the loss, the Hoosiers say goodbye to seniors Christian Watford,

Derek Elston and Hulls. There has also been a great deal of speculation

that Oladipo and Zeller may leave school early for the NBA Draft.

Both Oladipo and Zeller said they hadn’t yet thought about their futures.

"I have no clue,” Zeller said. “I don't know how it goes, I don't know

what happens from here. I was putting everything into this team, this

tournament. I haven't thought about it at all."
