Indiana commit Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell, a five-star point guard and the No. 17 overall player in his class, according to Rivals, had quite the (lucky) play in a recent state semifinal game for Park Tudor HS (Ind.).

Sullinger, Buford consecutive game-winning shots

Winning on the road in the Big Ten is never easy. Doing it in back-to-back games is even tougher. Doing it with game-winning shots in the final seconds twice, that’s incredibly rare.
