IU had a pretty good first half, but have you seen what is happening to DUKE? They are getting a basketball lesson from Florida. How about the #1 team in the nation being down 43 to 19 at the half. WOW who would have thunk it?

Did I read correctly where Crean started Perea over Hulls? That is what the box score said on ESPN. If so, makes sense. Might as well get him in ASAP, as the meat of the schedule begins.

No, Ben, that did not happen.

Ben,

Not sure what you saw, but the ESPN Box score shoes Perea coming off the bench. Also, if you truly think that it makes since to start Perea over Hulls, well, I just can’t say what I’m thinking….

Great game, and one worth waiting for. Some things about this game I really loved was Yogi finding his shooting touch, the bench coming alive, VO continuing to showcase his skills at all positions, and my #1 was Zeller. He should be a role model for all big men that play this game. When he is not getting the ball and scoring, I don’t think you can find a player that works harder than he does. He is by any measurement a one of a kind that rarely comes along.
Now let’s just hope we have turned the page, and can take this effort on the road. GO IU!!!!

Thanks Dustin.

Mike P, it didn’t make sense to me either. They must have corrected the box score then. If it did make sense to me, I’d hope you would call the happy wagon on me. :)

Wow, so few comments after such a big win. I know it’s PSU, and they’re not very good, but some people were saying the same about IU’s win over NW last week and look what they did to MN last night. Has The Hoosier Nation become so spoiled that we’re now blase’ about a 23 point win over a Big Ten opponent? Things seem to have changed quickly. Two years ago, the fans would have stormed the court after last night’s win.

C’mon, Po. That was the worst display of free throw shooting I’ve ever seen!!! We’ll be lucky to make it out of the first round of the NIT after a performance like that. And what’s with another second half meltdown? Defensive lapses let PSU almost double their first half production. Crean should be fired immediately and we should look for someone who knows how to close out weaker opponents. Like Brad Stevens. Oh, wait…

Only kidding.

Glad to see us get a solid win without much for the boo birds to rant about. Northwestern proved to Minnesota that nobody can take any league game for granted. Schedule gets REALLY tough now. Hope we can keep this up. Go Hoosiers.

You mean Minnesota who scored 52 points in a half in Assembly Hall (4 points more than they scored against Northwestern in the entire game)?

Podunker is simply a less talented Limbaugh.

Minnesota scores 52 in one half in AH.

Yet they score 48 in a whole game in Evanston.

Wisconsin beats us fair and square in AH.

Then they lose to Iowa.

Tam Cream is definitely building a dynasty here. :roll:

Penn State (#210) is the last cupcake of the season (0-7, 8-11). They’re ranked about the same with Sam Houston St.

Oh what a great win!

How sad and lonely must people be that a pleasure they take out of their day is to anonymously post something deragatory about a team that they supposedly cheer for, or even worse, do not cheer for (meaning they are trolling some other team’s message board)? I feel bad for some of you, I really do. What a sad way to go through life.

It was a solid win for IU last night, even though I did not get to watch it because I was at work. The MSU game this Sunday is huge, probably the biggest of the year to date for the Hoosiers. If IU wins, they take back possession of 1st place in the Big Ten. Tom Izzo is one of my favorite coaches in the entire country. He’ll definitely have State ready to play on Sunday. Glad I can watch!

Note: I realize I post anonymously too, but I keep the same handle so people know it is me (and luckily, I am not “popular” enough for someone to ‘steal’ my handle and post something stupid under it).

Thom Cream sure was was right about NW’s field goal % defense (top 10 nationally)!

Francois, I’m going to do my best CTC impression and snarkishly say “what’s your point?”

I read your #11 post multiple times and can’t figure just what the hell out what you’re trying to say. If you’re going to ask a rhetorical question, try including some actual rhetoric.

Punjab; two great posts back-to-back. I’m impressed. Only one suggestion! You should have explained to Francois what the word “rhetorical” means.

psych, great post too. I think you took the meaning of my post #9. There are a lot people that participate on this site only when they can lob criticisms at Crean, a player, IU, or the team in general. If they can’t bitch and moan and make derogatory comments, they have nothing to contribute.

Francois, are you French? Maybe you just admire the French. If either is the case, that explains it.
