Indiana bested by Michigan State, 72-57

Michigan State sent Indiana to its fourth consecutive loss Wednesday, returning the favor of a 19-point New Year’s Eve defeat to the Hoosiers with a 72-57 win at the Breslin Center.

Spartans guard Tori Jankoska led her team with a career-high 28 points. With 11 rebounds, she was one of three Michigan State players to reach a double-double; forward Becca Mills finished with 12 points and 14 rebounds, while Aerial Powers set an MSU record with her 17th career double-double, matching Jankoska with 28 points and 11 boards.

The Hoosiers (12-8, 2-7 Big Ten) have lost all four of their road games this conference season, and their struggles offensively also continued. IU shot 36.2 percent from the field, including 6-of-22 from the 3-point line. At the free throw line, the Hoosiers were 9-of-19. They were also outrebounded, 48-38.

“It’s another disappointing loss,” IU head coach Teri Moren said. “We are still trying to figure out why, both in the Penn State game and now today in East Lansing, why we are coming out with such a lackluster energy, effort — why we can’t figure out how to compete better on the road.

“Part of that, I guess, is the youth, but we are kind of tired of using that as an excuse. We have to find answers. We have to quit making excuses and find solutions.” (more…)

The Boilermakers’ big men could be big trouble for the Hoosiers, Mike writes.

Teri Moren hopes to see some desperation from her IU women’s basketball team tonight at Michigan State, Jon writes.

2. IT’S INDIANA
IU has to play its way, not Purdue’s, to win in West Lafayette, Jordan Littman of Inside the Hall writes.

In a game of extremes, whichever team adjusts better to the matchups will win, Nathan Baird of the Lafayette Journal & Courier and Zach Osterman of the Indianapolis Star write.

Indiana is ready for a rivalry road game against the bruising Boilers, Pete DiPrimio of the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel writes.

4 storylines for Indiana’s game at Purdue #iubb

1. It’s a matchup of opposite strengths. Perhaps at no other point this season will Indiana find itself in a Big Ten game that poses such drastically different matchups as it will in its two meetings with Purdue. For Indiana, the key is creating space and hitting open shots — especially from 3. The Hoosiers struggled to cut and move within their offense at Ohio State on Sunday, but still managed to shoot over 50 percent for the game. They’ll need to bring that same firepower to West Lafayette, while managing to cut down on the 15 turnovers that sapped the flow from their offense in Columbus. All the while, Indiana must be vigilant and smart while defending Purdue’s twin, 7-foot towers in A.J. Hammons and Isaac Haas, who could make for a difficult defensive matchup for Collin Hartman on the defensive end. On the flip side, Hartman’s ability to space the floor on offense will be a difficult matchup for Hammons or Haas.

2. What’s the status of Robert Johnson’s knee? Crean offered no further update on Johnson Tuesday, but said that there’s no reason to anticipate that the freshman guard won’t play. What’s still unclear is whether Johnson starts and is able to maintain the same amount of time on the floor. Johnson has started all 20 games for IU, averaging almost 26 minutes per game. If he must concede some time to the bench, look for Nick Zeisloft to see an increased role. The other option is Stanford Robinson, but he has struggled mightily with consistency and had a rough afternoon in the Hoosiers’ last game at Ohio State. (more…)

Snapshot: IU’s defensive breakdowns at Ohio State

“We had the defensive mistakes that allowed easy looks. It’s one thing if they’re making tough shots, it’s another thing if we’re breaking down,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said on his weekly radio show Monday night.

After re-watching the game, there were more breakdowns than I can possibly chronicle here. And most disconcerting, there were breakdowns of all varieties — on the ball, off the ball, inbounds plays, zone, transition, etc. Here’s just a few examples.

(1) The trouble starts early for Indiana, even while the offense is on fire. Troy Williams fails to hedge a ballscreen for D’Angelo Russell at the top of the key, as Yogi Ferrell trails over the top of the screen, letting Russell get quickly to his favored left hand.
Russell_dunk_1

The Hoosiers are in trouble, as Russell is in the middle of the lane before anyone reacts, and Collin Hartman has no chance of making a block or taking a charge.
Russell_dunk_2

The result is that Hartman ends up on a poster.

Indiana adds 3-star prospect Reakwon Jones #iufb

Posted by in Football on Monday, Jan. 19, 2015 at 12:12 PM.

Indiana’s 2015 recruiting class continued to grow on Monday with the addition of three-star linebacker Reakwon Jones.

Jones, a 6-foot-2 prospect out of Lynn Haven, Fla., was also considering California, South Florida and Florida Atlantic. 247 Sports’ Alex McCarthy was the first to report the commitment. Jones posted a message to his Twitter account at noon Monday, announcing his decision.

“I’ve decided to further my education and football career at Indiana University,” Jones wrote, “and will be shutting down all recruiting and extremely thankful for the opportunities that all of the schools have offered me. Thank you all again. IM A HOOSIER.”

Rivals considers Jones a two-star prospect. He also plays safety, but Peegs.com’s Matt Weaver reports he will play linebacker at Indiana. He is the 19th player to commit — not including UAB transfers Jordan Howard and Marqui Hawkins — to what is expected to be a full 25-man class.

Hoosiers ranked No. 22 in AP poll, No. 21 in USA Today coaches poll #iubb

Posted by in Men's Basketball on Monday, Jan. 26, 2015 at 1:09 PM.

Indiana moved up one spot to No. 22 in the latest Associated Press poll, released Monday.

The Hoosiers are one of three Big Ten teams in this week’s top 25, joining No. 5 Wisconsin and No. 16 Maryland, which was ranked three spots higher prior to splitting its week with an 89-70 loss at IU and a last-second home win over Northwestern.

Indiana split its week, too, after Sunday’s 72-60 loss at Ohio State. The Buckeyes received votes, but did not crack the rankings.

In the USA Today Coaches poll, IU moved up two spots to No. 21.

The full AP top 25 rankings can be found after the jump. (more…)

Indiana hangs with No. 6 Maryland but falls, 84-74

Posted by in Women's Basketball on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015 at 5:39 PM.

These are the steps a young team must take, inevitably heading toward defeat, but Tyra Buss was eagerly kicking each foot back so her hands can pet the grips on the bottoms of her sneakers

Down 15 points to No. 6 Maryland with a little more than 90 seconds to play, there was no way for the Hoosiers to win. But there was time to compete, a chance to stick with a top-ranked team.

Buss had just ripped the ball out of the hands of 6-foot-3 forward Brionna Jones, momentum taking her to the ground as it popped free. She laid on the ground for a moment, a familiar position for the Hoosiers in games where they were down. They stayed down.

But the Hoosiers’ 5-foot-7 freshman bounced to her feet. She found her place on the court, kicked her feet back, slapping her hands against the grips of her shoes. She shuffled in-place, preparing for the next opportunity to strike.

The Hoosiers found opportunities, late steals and quick offense in the closing seconds, earning a 84-74 loss against an opponent head coach Teri Moren measured up to be a Final Four contender. In the end, it was still a loss, bitter in many ways, but those gathered in Assembly Hall weren’t left solely with images of defeat.

“Pleased at the fact that we bounced back after a really disappointing loss at Penn State, a game where we should have had a better mindset, a better approach, we needed a better energy level, effort,” Moren said. “I thought we got that out of them today.” (more…)
