BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana is starting to make a habit of beating these highly ranked teams.On Saturday, they didn't need a buzzer-beating shot to win, and they didn't even storm the court afterward.Victor Oladipo scored the go-ahead basket on a fast-break layup with 36 seconds left Saturday and Indiana (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today, No. 13 AP) upset No. 2 Ohio State 74-70, the first time Indiana has defeated the nation's top two teams in the same season.
Hoosiers Beat Both No. 1 and No. 2
The Hoosiers are the fifth team in the past 10 seasons to beat teams ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the AP poll in the same season. Only Indiana, Kansas in 2007-08 and Louisville in 2003-04 achieved the feat in the same month.
