BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — The signs held high in the Indiana student section during pregame introductions were appropriate: "You rank 'em, we beat 'em."
And on the same night Will Sheehey was honored for joining the 1,000-point club, he scored 19 of his career-high 30 to lead the Hoosiers over No. 20 Iowa 93-86 on Thursday in a game that was postponed last week.
"These guys were just finding me in transition," Sheehey said. "I think Yogi (Ferrell) threw two or three over-the-top passes. Really, I was scoring without the ball in my hands and these guys found me."
Stanford Robinson had a career-best 17 points off the bench for the Hoosiers (16-12, 6-9 Big Ten), who beat a Top 25 team for the third time this year. Michigan was No. 10 when the Hoosiers topped the Wolverines on Feb. 2, and Wisconsin was ranked third when Indiana won last month.
The Hoosiers scored six straight points to take a 77-69 lead when Robinson converted a three-point play. Ferrell tossed a pass near the basket and Sheehey dunked to give Indiana an 82-73 advantage with 1:35 remaining.
"He's playing like the Will Sheehey that everyone has come to know, love and respect over the past couple of years," Indiana coach Tom Crean said. "Just go out and play. We need his leadership, we need his courage, we need Will to be Will."
Indiana went on a 9-0 run in the second half, capped by a 3-pointer from Evan Gordon that gave them a 62-60 lead with 13:13 remaining.
Roy Devyn Marble had 20 points and Aaron White added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Hawkeyes (19-9, 8-7), who have lost three straight.
