The Hoosiers finished the regular season with a 19–10 record, and after losing in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament, earned a 5-seed in the 2002 NCAA Tournament. What followed was a surprise run to the National Championship game, earning the program its eighth Final Four appearance. Though the Hoosiers lost to Maryland in the final, they upset top-seeded Duke in the Sweet 16 and took down future Indiana head coach Kelvin Sampson's 2-seed Oklahoma Sooners squad in the Final Four.

The team was led by Bloomington-native sophomore star Jared Jeffries. Other members of the team included seniors Dane Fife and Jarrad Odle, as well as another former Indiana Mr. Basketball Tom Coverdale.
