No. 13 Indiana landed a massive win over No. 3 North Carolina on Wednesday night, the kind of win that could put them in line to get a No. 1 seed if things go their way during Big Ten play, but for that to happen you’ll have to keep an eye on the status of O.G. Anunoby.

Anunoby is one of Indiana’s most important players - he was limited to just 13 ineffective minutes in the loss to Fort Wayne due to illness - and he went down late in the win with a left ankle injury.

“I’m not sure yet,” Crean said of the injury after the game. “He’s getting evaluated in there. He couldn’t go back into the game. It’s high (on the ankle), so we’ll see.”

Anunoby had 16 points and five boards in the win.
