The young Orange backcourt of Cooney and Ennis combined for 38 points against IU, showing good chemistry, Donna Ditota of the Syracuse Post-Standard wrote.

IU’s dismal second-half effort leaves the Hoosiers and Tom Crean looking for leaders, Alex McCarthy of Inside Indiana writes.

They were called for “flagrants”

Ejecting Austin was ridiculous, and a total “homer” call. He made a play for the ball and may have even got a part of it. Not saying it was not a foul, but a flagrant 2, no way. That call was a disgrace. I noticed that the Cuse player was not injured. He faked it for a few seconds, but was not injurred. Since he’s such a wuss, maybe he should be playing soccer.

If these rules were in affect back in 75 and 76, Kent Benson would never have finished a game! Watch some of the IU games from back then. Mr. Benson was not a kind and gentle big man in the paint.

These rules are a part of the continued “sissification” of America. What’s next, no checking in hockey or the NFL becoming the NFFL – the National Flag Football League. IT’S BECOMING A JOKE.

I too thought Austin got part of the ball. In fact, I thought he got the ball first before he made further contact. I agree too that was a “homer” call. I also think Austin got the shaft.

AE did get a hand on the ball as seen on the very last replay shown of it during the game(I personally thought it was a very good defensive effort by Austin, I did not realize he had the speed he displayed on that play). I agree 1000%, in total, with your post #4. In our lifetime we may witness QB’s throwing from an 8′ diameter cage with an open top from the chest up. Won’t that be entertaining to watch?

I immediately thought “they’re kicking him out because it’s in Syracuse and the crowd is all over them.” I don’t think there’s any question that’s a Flagrant 1 in Bloomington or on a neutral court. My favorite was his explanation to Dakich at the press table when Dan questioned the play on the ball – “it was just the whole play.” Yup, great answer buddy. I couldn’t help but laugh.
