Wow. Ugly, ugly 1st half. They looked really out of sinc, bad spacing, rushed shots, but even on the good shots we absolutely could not BUY a basket. I thought m, the perimeter defense was good, interior defense not so much. FINALLY settled in & played decent basketball the last 15 minutes of the game, thanx to Oladipo sparking things offensively, but all in all, a rather alarmingly poor performance. Th saving grace is that we are not alone in that regard in terms of highly ranked teams so far this season. Just about everyone has played close games against heavy underdogs. Andy Katz says it’s possible Jurkin & Perea could play tommorrow. We’ll see.

I must have gotten confused by some Women’s scores again, cuz’ actually I wasdead wrong. Most of the top 10 has rolled through their schedules so far. We need to be better tommorrow.

Road game,out of sync.We let them get it inside three times early.Once the defense steadied,we hung tough.With foul trouble,bad shooting,and to quote Tennyson,”our bulwark fallen”,we managed to win with grit and toughness.Just think of it,not much from Cody,others rose up to meet the challenge.I thought Hollowell was very quick to the ball.Unfortunately he made mistakes once he got the ball.Solid by Remy again.Big 10 road games will look like this.Good win .

Chris k- by looking only at box scores IU has also rolled through the competition… Not sure any other conclusion you could come to from 43, 26, 54, and 13 point wins.

But yes, we’ll have to play much better to beat Georgetown, and I think we will. Just needed a while to adjust to the increased level of opponent – now we have.

Tonight won’t be easy… GU starts 1 very quick guard and then four 6’8″ & 6’9″ forwards… It’s going to be tough for us to play Jordy and Yogi (or any combos with Abell & Creek) together for long stretches unless we go just go zone the whole time… This is the perfect game to get Perea back – hope it happens – a line-up of guard, Dipo, Sheehey, Watford, and Zeller with Perea subbing in is perfect for 30+ minutes of tonight’s game.
