WATCH: Indiana Basketball’s Miller Kopp Secures Big Three
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Tied at 43 points a piece, Indiana forward Miller Kopp hit a three pointer from the corner to give Indiana the advantage over Kennesaw State in the second half.
The Hoosiers trailed for most of the game but finally gained some offensive momentum as freshman guard Jalen Hood-Schifino passed it off to Kopp from the top of the key.
The 6’7″ forward took care of business from there as the ball saw nothing but net. Earlier this season, Indiana head coach Mike Woodson said he was looking at Kopp to hit more three pointers this year. Kopp said he had been working on perfecting his shot and is leading the starters with a 45.9 three-point percentage.
With just over six minutes to go in the game, Kopp has five points while guards Tamar Bates and Hood-Schifino lead the Hoosiers with 15 and 13 respective points.
