Indiana Basketball has had a tough year, and the way they ended it was heartbreaking. In a double overtime loss to the Ohio State Buckeyes, the senior class was showcased in their senior night. Take a look at the game through some of the better shots I grabbed from this nail biter, where Ohio State defeated Indiana, 80 to 78.
