Indiana at Wisconsin, In-game analysis (2nd half)


Eric Gordon tries to drive.

WISCONSIN 57, INDIANA 47 (1:21)

As the overrated chants come cascading down from the student section, I’m wondering what you guys saw on television when Gordon got hurt. We’re up in the balcony here and couldn’t tell what was going on. Did he hurt his throat? It seems like he was pointing there.

WISCONSIN 53, INDIANA 45 (3:10)

Has Indiana’s run come too late in the game?

WISCONSIN 48, INDIANA 41 (7:53)

Those are two plays winning teams make. First Gordon dives and swats the loose ball to a teammate, then D.J. White doesn’t give up on a rebound.

White’s got 18 points and 13 rebounds already. That’s his 13th double-double of the year.

WISCONSIN 46, INDIANA 36 (9:29)

Yes, yes he can. Eric Gordon gets to the lane and hits a tough lay-in. Wrist injury? What wrist injury? Then he hits one of his patented long 3-pointers to make it a 10-point game.

WISCONSIN 46, INDIANA 31

Was that some energy out of the Hoosiers? Is there hope?

Gordon drills a 3-pointer and then Stemler works on defense, avoids fouling and creates a turnover.

Can Gordon spark a run?

WISCONSIN 40, INDIANA 24 (15:54)

Not the start Indiana wanted, as Ellis picks up his third foul right away.

And then D.J. White hurts his elbow going for a rebound. He holds in for about 30 seconds as he tries to follow the crowd but comes back hits a jumper and works inside for a bucket.

But Brian Butch answers with a bucket inside and a 3-pointer.

And Marcus Landry is getting his shot going, as he now has nine points.

The crowd goes crazy as Hughes tosses a pass behind his back and Flowers finishes to put the home team up 16 points.

    Very sad,Thomas is a foul machine,Lance tries too hard to be a clutch player.I Know I`ll get sh-t for this but I think E.J. is over -rated.Young and strong but needs one more year ….do you think?

    This team is turning out to be a disappointment.
    Eric and DJ on the same team and we score 49?

    where to start with this game…23/14 foul difference…with 83% foul shooting, getting to the line more often would have been helpful…one of the few foul shots we missed was a key shot by DJ when IU had cut the lead to 5..they then went on a monster run…
    turnovers: how do you go 11 turnovers in the first half and 1 in the second..once again as in the uconn game very little point production from the bench..
    Ted Hillary, Steve Welmer, Dan Chrisman should be asked what their definition of a legal screen is, i would guess their definition and Ejs would differ..
    3-21 from 3 land:..perhaps getting the ball low post to the man who scored another double/double would be a better choice…
    typical crawford offensive possession..dribble left, dribble right, dribble left again..wait the shot clock is almost expired..jack up a three..repeat
    he needs to make better decisions…
    Bassett..Mr. Invisible..unless your looking for someone to jack up another rushed 3-pointer..then he is your man…29 minutes…2points…1 board..0-5 3’s…
    2 awful nights of shooting..defense had alittle to do with 33% shooting, but for the most part it was bad shot selection..and the fact that no fouls were called on wisconsin…our guards shot 2..yes 2 free throws in the game to wisc’s guards..21 free throw attempts
    in summary: Wow what an ugly game…IU had to improve marginally from the uconn game and only one player did..DJ…when IU only scores 49 points and 38 of those points come from two players, IU will lose..

    I agree with you Dave, totally…I understand playing at home you get your typical alotment of calls, but the foul descrepency last night was just flat out insane…23-14, are you sh!tting me?!? Don’t get me wrong I’m happy with the 17 victories, the SOS helped that stat, granted we have no control over the schedule…The last two games have shown me that there are a lot of things that need to be fixed before this seasons gets away from us…”we just showed no grit”, to quote KS

    They are just not ready to play with the better teams. It’s 2 against
    5 for the most part. Something’s got to change or this will be
    a miserable year.

    IU fan, you are right — it’s 2 against 5. Our role players need to step up.

    EJ reminds me of Isiah Thomas his freshman year. He needs to stay at IU one more year like Zeke did. The difference between those two years was a national championship. The big problem is we won’t have DJ next year.

    I don’t think we are overrated. Sagarin has us just about right (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/sagarin/bkt0708.htm). But if you look at his point system, there are 4 or 5 good teams at the top, and then not much difference between 6 and 30. IU is just one of 30 mediocre teams.

    Friday, February 1, 2008 - 11:23 PM EDT

    You guys are all correct. But Greg, are you sure we are good enough right now to qualify for mediocre?

    Who’s in charge of this train wreck? Who’s going to fix it?

Scoop Poll:

Will IU land one of Thomas Bryant or Thon Maker
