"But Duke just came out flat against Indiana in the Sweet 16, losing 74-73."

I thought they had an 18 or 19 point lead and faultered.

Ummm yeah, that's someone who didnt watch ONE minute of that game. Duke was kicking our @$$ up and down the floor, and I'm 99% sure they had a 20-point lead in the first half.

 

That's is certainly not coming out flat.

 

One of the best IU games ever, IMO, given the stage and the opponent, culminating with Moye's block of Boozer.  I have the game on DVD dubbed over with Fish's radio play-by-play.

For those talking about the IU and Duke 2002 game here is a box score with stats. I was in a friend's hotel room during spring break watching that game and I remember we were excited after the game and then went swimming.

IU with an 8 man rotation and Duke with 6. Interesting. Crean had me thinking you need to play 11 and at least have 1 walk on getting major minutes.

Honestly my first thought was no wonder Crean wasn't too concerned with Turnovers. 23 turnovers and we still beat them

That 2002 stretch was what really turned me into a true diehard.  As a student the excitement on campus was unreal.  I remember those games and those nights to a T.   Moye was my dude.  

My first IU memory was watching Cloverdale hit a half-court shot that got reviewed and decided he shot it too late I believe. I was probably 6-7 years old. My dad & older brother both jumped up and were screaming out of joy when he hit it, naturally I followed suit. At that point I had no option but to love IU. Good memories!

That Duke game will forever hold a place in my heart. That was the game that made me fall in love with Indiana basketball. I was riding home from a long trip with my dad and we listened to the entire game on the radio with Fischer. How we didn't wreck on that Moye block is beyond me, but that was one of my favorite road trips ever.

Ugh, you kids.  The '76 championship when we knocked off Michigan for the 3rd time in that season and after losing Bobby Wilkerson early in the first half to injury and to be known as the last UNDEFEATED national championship team. 

I was on campus in grad school during that season. Great times!
