Michael Pointer

Holtmann rolling the dice here a little bit. Barlow back in with two fouls and 3:07 left in half. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Perea just sent one of Jones' underhand shots into the stands. Literally.

Michael Pointer

IU isn't getting much from Blackmon and Ferrell. Jones doing his usual good job there. But Troy Williams is tearing #Butler up.

Michael Pointer

Indiana 35, #Butler 27, 3:53 left in first half. Bulldogs cut defict to 2 before IU went on 901 run. Really, really missing Barlow.

Michael Pointer

Martin and Chrabascz in for Etherington and Aldridge. That didn't last long. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Excuse me. . .Jackson Aldridge. My apologies. My Jacksons ran together for a moment. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Jackson Davis getting some run as well. Big part of the game.

Michael Pointer

#Butler really needs Austin Etherington to step up -- and he fouls Williams on the drive and basket. With Barlow sitting, this is huge.

Michael Pointer

Indiana has 10 points from its bench. #Butler has just two. Thus far, Hoosiers doing a good job of working to their advantages.

Michael Pointer

Barlow been very active defensively. Just made a great strip that saved an IU basket and let to Barlow layup at other end. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Indiana 26, #Butler 22, 6:54 left in first half. Barlow just picked up his second foul. Would be tough he has to sit for long.

Michael Pointer

#Butler called for its first foul with 10:12 left in the first half. Let's just say the IU fans noticed.

Michael Pointer

Holtmann not sticking with the bench long. All five starters in after media timeout. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Difference thus far: IU is 3-for-5 from 3-point range. #Butler is 0-for-2. Bulldogs have missed a couple of open shots in the lane, too.

Michael Pointer

Indiana 17, #Butler 15, 11:29 left in first half. IU has it going at its pace probably a little more than Chris Holtmann would like.

Michael Pointer

IU is far from a perfect team, but fair to say #Butler has not played a team that can shoot it like this. Not even remotely close.

Michael Pointer

Dunham just got IU's Holt to bite on a pump fake and drew the foul. Hit all 3 free throws.

Michael Pointer

IU also is 2-for-2 from 3-point range. Trend that needs to stop for #Butler, obviously.

Michael Pointer

Good news for #Butler: Woods with a strong putback and Dunham getting to line early. Bad news: Chrabascz missed a couple of close-in looks.

Michael Pointer

Indiana 10, #Butler 8, 15:41 left in half. IU with three fouls already to none for Butler.

Michael Pointer

Seeing Crean and Holtmann on the same sideline is pretty striking. Talk about two different demeanors. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Jones starting out on Ferrell. Barlow on Blackmon, who drives to hoop for IU's first points.

Michael Pointer

Normal starting five for #Butler: Barlow, Jones, Dunham, Chrabascz, Woods.

Michael Pointer

#Butler fans with a pretty healthy turnout. IU still with an edge, but not as pronounced as I remember it in the past.

Michael Pointer

I am sitting in front of the #Butler band on the baseline. I am hoping still have my hearing at the end of the day.

Michael Pointer

Having said that: IU will give #Butler its best shot. As some of the other panelists noted, Crean under real pressure to win this game.

Michael Pointer

Hope you saw our Crossroads Classic preview show. My prediction during it: #Butler 65, Indiana 61. Defense and Butler's toughness prevail.

Michael Pointer

Final warning: Our Crossroads Classic preview show is at 1:45 on indystar.com. Yours truly will talk #Butler.

Michael Pointer

#Butler fans: Reminder to check out our Crossroads Classic preview show at indystar.com at 1:45 p.m. Guaranteed fun for all.

Watson still has a sinus infection (felt sick during the game Wed vs LAC). Tho he finished practice under his sweats, he's probable vs DEN

Candace Buckner

G. Hill once again participated in practice, & near the end ran w/ starters but only in place of C.J. Watson who couldn't finish the session

Candace Buckner

With 2 days off between road games, #Pacers did themselves a favor & got in a long practice in Denver; chance to get acclimated to thin air

#Marian is going to lose anyway, but that pass interference call was one of the worst calls I've seen on any level of football. Atrocious.

Michael Pointer

Every time I get ready to go run some errands, #Marian scores and provides a little drama in this NAIA title game.

Mark Montieth

Got my Wilt Chamberlain stamps today. Had to wait in line behind 20,000 women.

The sunshine and short sleeves during this #Marian game is a sad reminder we have a long winter ahead.

Chris Holtmann's hometown paper caught up with him. Here is the story. #Butler bit.ly/1wL4Xhu

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Pagano: Enough skill position guys available, Fleener, Allen give you flexibility in formations, just in case.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Pagano: For some, tall order to play after not practicing. Don't count Hilton out, he's something special.

Conrad Brunner

#Colts Pagano: Hilton worked out with trainers today.

Conrad Brunner

#COlts Pagano: Cherilus, Reitz, Thornton all ruled out. Davis, Hilton questionable.

Interesting: Three Indiana schools in top 10 in field-goal percentage. 1. Notre Dame (55.7), No. 5 Evansville (53.3), No. 10 #iubb (50.8).

Michael Pointer

Officials from BLF and four schools not providing ticket numbers, but getting a sense a lot of quality ducats remain for Crossroads Classic.

Michael Pointer

BTW: #Butler has not offered scholarship to Vermont Academy guard Ronnie Suggs after scouting him this week. Originally signed with Missouri

Talked to Roosevelt Jones today. Said he had only two finals and was finished on Tuesday. Impressive class scheduling. #butler

Michael Pointer

Chris Holtmann is impressed with IU. Expects the Hoosiers to make the NCAA Tournament. #butler

Michael Pointer

Another sign of how things have changes during the last 10 or 15 years: #Butler has beaten #Iubb in four of the last five meetings in Indy.

Michael Pointer

It was lost because of second-half meltdown in Knoxville, but Dunham became the 36th player in #Bulter history to score 1,000 career points.

Michael Pointer

#Butler is 9-2 all-time in Bankers Life Fieldhouse. It is 3-0 in the Crossroads Classic, the only remaining undefeated team.

Pacers fall 102-100 in L.A. Here's your instant rewind. More to come nba.com/pacers/rewind-…

Mark Montieth

Pacers struggle so badly to execute halfcourt offense at crunch time. Consistent issue.

Candace Buckner

Final: #Clippers 102-100. CJ Miles desperation three short at the buzzer. Both he and West led the #Pacers with 17 points. Indy now 8-18

Candace Buckner

Elevator play didn't close quickly enough to free up Watson. Miles didn't get free from Allen screen & too long to get a 3-point look

Mark Montieth

Who shoots here? Miles? Watson?

Candace Buckner

Stuckey had Redick 1 on 1. Sure he wanted that matchup, but couldn't complete the move for a bucket.

Candace Buckner

Roy Hibbert came back in to steal a ball. You saw that coming?

Candace Buckner

#Pacers have only made 16 of 23 FTs but Watson makes all three of his. #Clippers up 99-98 w/ 34.9 to go

Mark Montieth

Wouldn't it be amazing if a coach didn't call timeout before the final possession sometime?

Candace Buckner

Watson gets 3 free throw attempts, could pull #Pacers to within 1 point

Candace Buckner

C.J. Watson fouled on a jump shot. Seemed like J.J. Redick tried to get out the way from my angle. Could be a lucky break for #Pacers

Candace Buckner

46.6 seconds remain, #Pacers with the ball but down 99-95.

Candace Buckner

Down the stretch here, three bad things have happened for the #Pacers. They're now down 97-93

Greg Rappaport

Jordan's 21 boards are the most any player has had vs. the Pacers this season. Surpassing the previous high of 19 by--wait for it--Jordan.
