… or if you want to talk about something else, we’ll be here for the live chat as usual at 11 a.m.
Once again, the Hoosiers were not mentally strong enough during the second half. Once again, the opposing team went to the free-throw line too many times. Once again, the Hoosiers lost.
This one hurts more, if only because it was Purdue in Assembly Hall. As the Boilermakers left the court, sophomore D.J. Byrd pointed up at a small scoreboard that read: Purdue 72, Indiana 61.
JaJuan Johnson scored 20 points and E’Twaun Moore scored 17. Both did what they had to do and what was expected of them, two seniors that are contenders for All-American honors.
But it was the role players that also hurt Indiana: D.J. Byrd scored 11 points, and Terone Johnson had 9. But each made 3 3-pointers, often wide open, taking advantage of a lackluster Indiana defensive effort.
Indiana never led but did get the game close during the second half. Much like the game in Mackey Arena, the Hoosiers could not get over the hump.
Christian Watford had 18 points to lead the Hoosiers, but had two critical turnovers as he dribbled the ball out-of-bounds on consecutive possessions. Jordan Hulls, who was 1-of-6 in the first half, ended up 5-of-12 for 15 points.
The Hoosiers have now lost five in a row and at 12-16 with three regular-season games remaining are guaranteed a sub-.500 regular season for the third season in a row.
