Watford should not be handling ball against the press,in fact shouldnt have been in at that point,Sheehe shouldve been

Agreed....Watford is a good passer....and he made the worst pass.

The first half was beautiful....I agree his best game.  I still see too many 'strength' issues....baskets he should make when fouled.

Agreed but hes improving,i liked his D

For Butler fans, the game is on NBS sports channel on your Directv or channel 46 on Comcast out of Indianapolis.

 

Some bad news, sharp-shooter Rotnei Clarke (spell-chec) is being taken off on a stretcher....slammed to the floor hard on a flagrant foul.21-16 vs. Dayton in Dayton.  Will be a tough game.

Killer instinct....Watford and Oladipo seemed to wilt under pressure

 

Make no mistake about it, the first half shows more aggressiveness and physicality.  This needs to happen at the venues like Carver-Hawkey and Welsh-Ryan....not just Assembly Hall.

 

A great overall effort, but we need to show greater poise in tough times....88-81.  At times we saw the BEST IU can play, and at times we saw maybe the worst.....A solid....solid Minnesota Gopher team.  I do not wish for the game at the BARN.  

 

At halftime, I told my husband that it looked like IU was playing Whack a Gopher.  But, that smug smile soon left my face during the second half. 

 

I'm not looking forward to the game at the Barn either.  And, I hate raised courts.  Is there any good reason why they are raised?They just look dangerous to me.

Thats one of the older areanas,dont know what they were thinking with the raised court other than theres probably a hockey rink under it,if you look it up and find out thats the case let me know

We knew that the Gophers would make a run, and run they did.

 

Jay's statement below is correct.  Williams Arena...is of the older genre with a hockey rink below...and is VERY dangerous!!!!  I remember the old Market Square arena having that, but nit near as 'raised.'

 

Once again...not looking forward to the Barn.  Wisconsin next at home, and the Badgers are getting it together now.

It is January 15, and on my calendar it says IU vs. Wisconsin at 9 PM.  A little late for my liking, but still a challenging game.  IU is now ranked number 2 in the nation and played a fantastic first half this past Saturday against Minnesota.  The Badgers present another challenge.  This team is going to try and lull the Hoosiers to sleep with some 'boring Bo' Ryan slow it down basketball.  Bo wants a 52-45 game instead of a 88-80 game.....not too many teams want to try and run with the Hoosiers....ask Tubby Smith about the first half last Saturday!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Enjoy the game.....here is a Bleacher Report article (not bad) talking about the game and a breakdown of the players.  My hopes once again are to see more of Hanner Perea for experience, but more importantly a victory.  (Sorry SW....I know you are a Badger :))  GO HOOSIERS!!!!!

Wisconsin played 'Their game."  Not quite as low as I stated above.....64-59 instead of 52-45.....but eerily close.  IU let them control the game in their own building and that is a cardinal sin.  I said last week IU is very beatable when in a half court game....there we go.  Right now this team is not even close to tournament ready......here is the recap and box.

Well the Hoosiers took it to Penn State last night.  A nice showing from Oladipo, Sheehey, and what I thought was the best performance of the year by Yogi Ferrell.  If that kid can start consistently hitting that jumper mas he did in high school the sky is the limit!  

 

On another note.....Cody....ya need to stay in school another year....your worst performance as a Hoosier bar none!

 

I guess I should be happy with a win....Butler, Duke and Minnesota went down....Creighton lost their second in a row....

I think IU is still looking for the right combinations,they are not gonna be able to play 12 deep and maintain consistency.Crean is gonna find his 9 possibly 10 and go with it

Right now he really only has Sheehey and Abell showing any kind of consistency.  Hollowell keeps showing flashes.  Elston is not back.  It would be nice to get the veteran presence of Creek back.  It would also be nice if Hanner-Perea was even remotely close to who we thought he was coming in.....young fella is a lost puppy!  Has there been a Jurkin sighting?  :)

Parea is lost thanks to the NCAAs hypocricy,we need Elston healthy,Hollowell needs more time but will be very good,Creeks presense would help

I never thought I would say they miss Ettherington.......but I believe they do.  He was playing well compared to some of these guys.  Hollowell's little 3 game adventure was borderline too....an overzealous agent trying to make a dollar in Indy...Mom reported it...ridiculous IMO.

Yes they are,if you at least split your ok

They should have beaten Portland....they have Denver and Utah coming up....both much better teams...Portland had lost 6 straight.  I hope we do not go 0-3....

Indiana University up on Michigan State as it stands.  I am not going out on a limb in saying Victor Oladipo is the BEST defensive player in the nation, and may be one of the best I have seen since Sidney Moncrief!  Ther are no adjectives to describe how quick he is in the passing lanes.

 

He is so quick with hands, feet and anticipation....Bob Knight would be proud!!!  :)

Id say its safe to say,he was dominant again,and his offense keeps getting better.Hes hands down the best defender ive seen in the last 20 years,maybe even back to Moncrief.I dont recall anybody between now and  those time periods that measure up

Still not happy with Cody.  They will not win the Big 10 unless he is aggressive every night.  He went up against Payne and Nix....2 big boys and lost the battle.  Even Valentine was beating him to the ball. He is 6' 5" and 225.

 

Nice to see Creek back.  He was rusty....Elston needs to get back too.  Perea.......is so raw it is ridiculous.  His one move to the hoop was BRUTAL  :)

 

Big 4 game stretch......Michigan has won at Minnesota and at Illinois.....they have the edge.

Tom Izzo must have agreed....by the way 1,2 3 are Michigan, Kansas and Indiana.....Butler 9th....a shame Clarke could not play against LaSalle.....Gonzaga jumped to 7.......Here is an article on Oladipo.
