University of Indianapolis defeats Bruce Pearl's Volunteers (79-64) through keen coaching and team chemistry.
Stan Gouard utilized a full-court press he learned from his mentor while en route to a D2 National Championship in 1995 while both were at Southern Indiana. The Greyhounds, 33 of 40 from the line, were led by Darius Adams' 27 points and Adrian Moss - a Franklin HS grad and IUPUI transfer.
Although this was the 2nd exhibition loss for UT in the past 4 years, there are larger concerns for the defending Elite 8 finalists. The NCAA is investigating Pearl's involvement in improper recruiting and lying to officials, which has already led to 1-year probation and reduction in salary.
