BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Maybe Roy Williams should have watched Tuesday night's game on two screens.
On one, he could have dissected what went wrong with No. 14 North Carolina.
On the other, he might have actually enjoyed seeing No. 1 Indiana play basketball its way.
Cody Zeller finished with 20 points and eight rebounds, while Victor Oladipo and Will Sheehey both added 19 points in a stunning 83-59 rout in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
"If you like Indiana basketball, you had to enjoy tonight, and I like Indiana basketball but not nearly as much as I like North Carolina basketball," Williams said somberly. "We've got to get things going a little bit better together."
The good news is that the Tar Heels might not get another dose of Indiana basketball any time soon.
A week ago, North Carolina (5-2) trailed by 29 points before falling to two-time national runner-up Butler in the semifinals of the Maui Invitational.
In North Carolina's first game back on the mainland, it happened again, this time against the Hoosier State's best team. Indiana (7-0) led by as many as 32 points during a dreadful second half in which North Carolina shot 27.8 percent from the field and was 0 for 5 from 3-point range.
"I like my team, I don't like the way we played tonight," Williams said. "For us, it was a tough night to say the least."
Zeller and his teammates were ready to send the college basketball world a message Tuesday: America's No. 1 team really is America's best team.
Did they ever.
They gave up only three points in the first 8 ½ minutes of the second half, and offensively, the Hoosiers were their usual balanced selves.
Zeller was 8 of 13 from the field with four blocks, one steal and an assist. Oladipo and Sheehey were both 8 of 12 from the field. Senior guard Jordan Hulls was 5 of 8, including three 3-pointers, and finished with 13 points, eight assists and two steals.
