Indiana Hoosier’s rally too late to steal ugly road win in Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota — There’s that age-old phrase about “winners ugly,” and that’s exactly what Indiana did Wednesday night. The Hoosiers clinched a 61-57 win in Minnesota and came from behind in the final 47 seconds to beat the bottom-ranked team in the Big Ten.

It was ugly. Very ugly even. But it was also a win, the fourth straight for the Hoosiers. It was a great escape to be sure.

“At the end of the day, we found a way to win,” said Indiana senior Trayce Jackson-Davis, the current Big Ten player of the week. He led the Hoosiers with 25 points and 21 rebounds. It was the first 20/20 game for an Indiana player since DJ White in 2009.
