So just how stunning was this upset? It was a shocker, by a relatively unknown school.
Here are 7 crazy facts about Fort Wayne, the school that stunned Indiana.
"Fort Wayne" isn't even the school's official name
The school's actual title is "Indiana University-Purdue University of Ft. Wayne," which is owned and run by both Indiana University and Purdue University. The school is actually technically known as the "IPFW Mastodons" but have abbreviated their name to "Ft. Wayne" for branding purposes.
That's a helluva brand power play. Especially when you consider...
Their nickname is the "Mastodons"
Yes, you read that correctly: The Mastodons, which is inarguably the greatest nickname in all of college athletics.
And with that, I've got to be honest: I don't care whether you're an Indiana fan, Fort Wayne fan, or a fan of another school altogether. If you can't get behind a team nicknamed "The Mastodons" we can't be friends.
They're new to the big-time college hoops scene
The Mastodons (sorry, I can't stop saying it) didn't even join Division I until the 2001-2002 season (ironically, the last year Indiana made the Final Four), and served as an independent until 2007. They have been a member of the Summit League ever since.
The Mastodons have never been to the NCAA Tournament
For comparison's sake, Indiana has been 39 times.
Fort Wayne also has just one 20-win season since joining D-I as well.
They had never beaten a ranked team before Wednesday night either
Going 0-9 in their previous nine games against ranked teams.
They hadn't even played a ranked team in four seasons.
Indiana beat them just last year
By a final score of 90-65. The Mastodons trailed by 14 at halftime, and never got much closer, in a dominant Hoosiers win.
It also shows you just how far the team has come in one short season.
