Crean: Roth likely done for the season

Apparently, the point of no return for Matt Roth has finally arrived.

The sophomore guard still hasn’t participated in a full practice since breaking his right foot just before the Puerto Rico Tip-off Tournament in November, and IU coach Tom Crean said Monday during the Big Ten teleconference that Roth probably will not return this season.

“I would doubt very much he’s going to recover in time to play for us this season,” Crean said. “It’s been a slow process. It was a process that was moving in a good direction, but I think it’s maybe kind of run it’s course.” (more…)

Thoughts on another snowy morning

1.) At least if the winter was going to be like this, IU could have known in advance and put in a bid for the Winter Olympics. Canada v. Russia hockey would be awesome at Frank Southern.

2.) I’ll be talking on the radio with former IU player and coach Dan Dakich later today. Should be around 11 a.m. You can listen through the 1070 The Fan Web site. Also, they’re offering a cruise package in which you spend a week on a boat with Dan Dakich. That’s awesome.

3.) It’s snowing.

4.) Hugh Kellenberger should come through with your Hoosier Morning in a bit. Dustin Dopirak will have a report from the Big Ten conference call at some point as well.

5.) Be safe out there. The snow makes the roads slippery.

ScoopTalk: starring the Madison skyline (and a lamp)

Wisconsin 83, Indiana 55


Indiana was beaten before it stepped on the floor of the Kohl Center Saturday afternoon. It never threw a single punch, never really even bothered putting up much of a block, didn’t move around the ring at all. Wisconsin won 83-55 after easing up on the Hoosiers before heading to the locker room for half time.

The Hoosiers (9-15, 3-9) have lost sixth straight. They once again showed very little gusto on defense, and Wisconsin shot 50 percent from the field. It consistently kicked out for wide open 3-pointers, hitting 10-of-25.

The Hoosiers turned the ball over 21 times, leading to 29 points for the Badgers. This here box score says so.

Not a whole lot else to say. Had to figure Wisconsin, a top 15 team coming off a rare loss at home, was going to want this game.

You also could have reasonably expected Indiana to show a bit of determination, too.

It did not.

More to come. (more…)
