The Hoosiers have the fourth-highest field goal percentage in the country. Shooting right at 50 percent, it's no wonder why Indiana is having a successful season.
This team is so effective on offense because they get shots close to the rim. It's pretty simple logic.
The closer you are to the basket, the better chance you have of making the shot.
Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo are excellent examples of this. Zeller's field goal percentage is 58.8 percent. Oladipo shoots a mind-boggling 63.9 percent.
This is no accident considering Zeller constantly gets the ball eight feet from the basket or closer, and Oladipo makes it a habit of driving to the hoop instead of shooting long jump shots.
Getting the ball in the lane also creates fouls, which lead to free throws. IU has attempted 713 free throws this season.
The next closest team is Iowa with 645.
The Hoosiers shoot 74.5 percent from the charity stripe which is the best in the Big Ten. When they get to the line, they are effective.
IU knows the recipe to scoring points. Now, they just have to keep it up over their last four games.
