Junior forward Christian Watford as tallied a team-high 17 points and has sparked a Indiana offense that's shooting 60-percent from the field. Meanwhile, the Wildcats haven't been able to match that clip shooting, but has survived because of Terrence Jones' 12 points and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's 11.
