BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The No. 1 chants rained down from the student section even before Saturday's game ended.By Monday afternoon, it should be official.Cody Zeller finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds, and Victor Oladipo added 15 points, leading the third-ranked Hoosiers to an 81-73 victory against No. 1 Michigan on a day that the nation's top two teams lost. The results will likely send Indiana back to the top spot, which it held for the first seven weeks this season."It's a huge accomplishment," Oladipo said after about the expected climb. "You know we started there, we had a hard road to get back here. We're just going to continue to keep working."
