The Big Ten Network is releasing condensed 8-12 minute cuts of Big Ten basketball games from the 2021-22 season.
Next up was Mike Woodson’s first high major test as head coach at Indiana, and it turned into a thriller.
Leading the way for Indiana was Trayce Jackson-Davis with 18 points and 10 rebounds, and reserves Tamar Bates and Jordan Geronimo both had big moments. IU led 39-27 at halftime.
While Indiana let the halftime lead slip away, they never fell behind and made some big plays down the stretch. Xavier Johnson, who dealt with foul trouble, knifed into the lane for a layup with 1:14 left, and Race Thompson made a floater with :25 left. Indiana got a stop on St. John’s final possession to seal the win after they pulled Jackson-Davis out of the game and subbed in Geronimo who had a hand in the face of the shooter.
