Indiana 73, Coppin State 46

9 comments by   |   Saturday, December 22, 2007 - 1:14 pm EDT

D.J. White dunks late in the second half.

Hoosiers pull away in the second half and cruise to the 27-point win.

INDIANA 60, COPPIN STATE 42 (5:51)

Harrison drives into the paint and scores easily for a Coppin State basket.

D.J. White hits from outside.

Ellis takes a hard charge. He’s a bit gimpy from that earlier ankle injury but is still effective.

D.J. White again scores in the paint. Coppin State has no one who can guard him.

Kyle Taber enters the game.

INDIANA 56, COPPIN STATE 36 (7:42)

Mike White works hard for a bucket.

Ellis tries to double, leaving his man open for a bucket. Sampson not happy.

D.J. White finds space, takes the pass and finishes.

Finally Gordon penetrates and scores.

Ellis gets in the passing lane and makes the steal, but turns it over.

Was that another block by D.J. White? Depends on how they score it I guess. Couldn’t tell from here.

Both coaches are after the refs after a few strange calls.

INDIANA 48, COPPIN STATE 30 (12:20)

Indiana’s running now, and that’s trouble for the Eagles. Gordon found White there, who finished strong.

They’re also getting to the line, as Crawford just did. He hits both.

Indiana’s controlling the game now as Coppin State’s fatigue is showing.

INDIANA 40, COPPIN STATE 30 (15:48)

D.J. blocks away a Coppin State attempt.

Gordon misses a 3 but gets his own rebound. Now Ellis attacks the zone and kicks to Stemler. Who hits a 3.

Vince Goldenberry splits the IU defense and scores.

Indiana gets it into White in the pain, and he hits.

Now White makes his second block of the half.

At the other end, Gordon’s fouled trying to get to the rim in transition.

INDIANA 35, COPPIN STATE 28 (18:04)

What will the Hoosiers do here? They haven’t tried to penetrate much. Can’t remember Gordon even trying to drive yet.

They begin their first possession by passing around the perimeter and looking to drive. No go. So Gordon shoots from 3. Good.

Athletic follow by Duncan keeps the Eagles within a 3-pointer.

White inside….up strong, fouled but the ball rolls off the rim.

Steal by Gordon leads to a break away dunk by Crawford.

We started out pretty slowly, and they played pretty well. I’m really not sure if we played better the second half, or if csu just ran out of gas…oh well its a win, we gotta take it.

But if that was the 13th best team in the country today wearing white out there, we have some pretty poor college teams in the country this year!

Go Hoosiers, soon it will be BigTen time!!

I was wondering if you guys had seen the information about the NCAA banning “live blogging” … theres an article over http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20071222-ncaa-to-press-stop-live-blogging-our-games.html

I really like the live blog, personally even if I’m watching the game on the BTN (in HD, woo hoo!) or listening on the radio I, I still like to read the live blog since it gives me insights other than my own.

Maybe so Kevin, but I think this is kinda a tough game. We’re still young and missing a couple guys. Even more, they’re getting ready to go home for the holiday and they’ve gotta be looking forward to the Big 10 season and no doubt looking past this one. Throw all that together and I think it’s hard for the Hurryin Hoosiers to really get up for a game like this.

I know, I know they should be up for every game and working 110% 24-7-365, but you gotta be realistic. I’m sure they were just thinking let’s go out and get a W, go home for Christmas and then get ready for the conference season soon.

Neil,

We are aware of the new NCAA rules for blogging.

Fortunately, they only apply to NCAA Championship events. They won’t stop us from blogging regular-season games.

While I haven’t yet spoken to any legal experts on this sort of thing — I do plan to eventually — I don’t think the NCAA will be able to enforce these rules. I can’t imagine they’ll dedicate the resources to checking all of our blogs. Besides: you could just as easily blog using your iPhone from the stands or by sitting at home. So are they really preventing this sort of blogging just by stopping the 100 people wearing credentials?

In-game interaction — with other fans, with people covering the team, with whoever — is the next frontier of sports coverage. I know that many people already sit in front of the TV with their laptops, looking stuff up or posting on message boards while they watch the game. Technology will continue to merge and allow fans to actively take part in their viewing experience in new ways.

The NCAA — and people making money off the status quo — will attempt to slow that all down.

It won’t work. Progress is the unstoppable force in our world, and even the NCAA is not an immovable object. Though it probably thinks it is.

Chris
