    导出博客文章HONOLULU -- This one certainly didnt feel like a season-opener to Tom
    Crean.James Blackmon, Jr. scored 22 of his 26 points after halftime to lift No.
    11 Indiana to a season-opening 103-99 overtime victory over No. 3 Kansas on
    Friday night in the Armed Forces Classic.I told someone before the game that
    this feels like March in here and thats how it played out, Crean said.It was a
    thrilling finish to a back-and-forth contest. Kansas tied at 87 on Frank Mason
    IIIs layup with 39 seconds left. Blackmon reclaimed a brief lead for Indiana
    with two free throws with 13 seconds remaining. However, Mason answered with two
    more free throws with 2 seconds to play in regulation.Indiana had a chance to
    win it at the buzzer, but Blackmon Jr.s desperation shot from three-quarters
    court length was no good and sent the teams into overtime.The Hoosiers never
    trailed in overtime. Blackmon scored seven points in the period, including a
    step-back 3-pointer from the right wing that gave Indiana a 97-93 lead. He
    scored his teams final four points, including a thunderous dunk in the closing
    seconds.Crean, Indianas ninth-year coach had high praise for Blackmon, a junior
    guard who had knee surgery in January to cut short his sophomore season.Im just
    proud of him beyond belief; I couldnt be any prouder of him, Crean said. To come
    back and play the way he did on both ends of the court after overcoming
    everything that he has is great for him.The Hoosiers had five players score in
    double figures with Thomas Bryant notching a double-double with 19 points and 10
    rebounds. Curtis Jones had 15 points, OG Anunoby had 13 and Robert Johnson added
    10.Indiana trailed by as many as nine points, but shot 50 percent (14 of 28) in
    the second half.Blackmon was 4 of 8 from behind the 3-point line and the
    Hoosiers were 15 of 31 from beyond the arc. Juwan Morgan had 10 rebounds for the
    Hoosiers.Mason led the Jayhawks with 30 points and nine assists.Devonte Graham
    scored 16 points, while Carlton Bragg, Jr. and Svi Mykhailiuk chipped in 12
    apiece and Landen Lucas added 11 for Kansas.We didnt play well, but give
    (Indiana) credit, Kansas coach Bill Self said. Their guards really got in the
    lane when they wanted to and then we had to play out of foul trouble and then we
    had to play small too often. We competed hard down the stretch, but physically
    they just beat us on the glass and that was the difference in the game -- and
    they made shots. They made hard shots at the end of the clock.Seven players
    fouled out of the game, four of them Jayhawks.We played like it was our first
    game, Self said. We put ourselves in a situation to have the game come down to
    the end and we made some plays to get it to overtime and in overtime we lost all
    our guys and certainly it was hard to overcome that.The teams combined to make
    56 of 74 free throws. Kansas was 30 of 38 from the line, while Indiana made 26
    of 36.There were 16 ties and 17 lead changes in the game.Kansas opened the
    season away from Allen Fieldhouse for the first time since 2001, when it lost to
    Ball State 93-91 in the opening round of the Maui Invitational.It was the 14th
    meeting between the teams and first since 1995, when Kansas beat Indiana
    91-83.The Hoosiers lead the all-time series 8-6.BIG PICTUREKansas: One
    statistical category it held the edge in was turnovers, where it committed just
    11 to Indianas 18. The Jayhawks also excelled in points off turnovers,
    18-11.Indiana: Bryant, a third-team All-Big Ten center as a freshman last
    season, fouled out with 52 seconds left in regulation. The Hoosiers were able to
    persevere, a good sign for a relatively young squad.POLL IMPLICATIONSKansas will
    likely fall at least a few spots in the Top 25, but will have a chance to
    rebound with a showdown against top-ranked Duke Tuesday. The win should boost
    Indiana into the top 10 nationally.SALUTE THE TROOPSThis is the fifth
    consecutive year of the Armed Forces Classic, which has been held at different
    venues around the world with a heavy presence of American military personnel.
    The inaugural event was held at Ramstein Air Base in Germany in 2012. A
    different branch of the military serves as the host each year. This years event
    was hosted by the Navy and coincides with the 75th anniversary of the bombing of
    Pearl Harbor next month. Indianas jerseys were inscribed with Courage, while the
    Kansas jerseys read Honor. Kansas coaches wore military-style boots for the
    game.UP NEXTKansas: Will travel cross country to take on No. 1 Duke in the
    Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Tuesday.Indiana:
    Will host UMass-Lowell Wednesday as part of the Indiana Classic.
