"Indiana's bench is getting deeper. Among the traits that separate Indiana from much of the country this season -- besides stars Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo and two of the nation's best shooters, Christian Watford and Jordan Hulls, hunting for 3s in the same lineup -- is the do-everything sixth man play of small forward Will Sheehey. The rare times IU has struggled this season have typically coincided with substandard Sheehey performances. When he plays well, IU succeeds. Saturday, Sheehey shot 9-of-9 from the field and scored a career-high 22 points in Indiana's rout of rival Purdue. Sheehey isn't going to shoot perfectly from the field every game (obviously), but as long as he's making shots and playing with that unique edge, he's a major asset."
