ScoopTalk: Yeah, we are late

So we had computer issues over the weekend that led to ScoopTalk not being posted. Dustin felt the points we made and the things we discusses were still relevant, and I agreed, so here it is.

Crean on Indiana’s road woes, Creek

It has been a while since Indiana won a road game — more than a year, actually.

The last road win came on Jan. 21, 2010, against Penn State. That is 18-straight losses away from Assembly Hall (while not a true road environment, I am counting the Big Ten Tournament and the Las Vegas Classic).

Asked if he had an explanation or a reasoning for the problems on the road, Crean’s answer indicated that Saturday’s loss to Michigan was a microcosm of the problem.

“There has got to be a tinge of fear that leads to a collective toughness,” Crean said. “Not a tinge of fear that leads to comfort. … We got to have that our hair is on fire mentality that we are just going to play all out.”

Crean used the “hair is on fire” phrase after the Michigan game, and continued to talk about the combative edge Indiana needs to play with — collecting defense stops in the process.


How to see Hanner Perea in Bloomington

Tickets are now on sale for Saturday’s big high school game matching South against LaPorte LaLumiere.

LaLumiere is, of course, led by 2012 commit Hanner Perea, above.

The game is at 3 p.m., with doors opening at 2. Tickets are $5 and on sale starting today at South.

It is a particularly well-timed game, with IU playing Northwestern at 7. Fans should be able to check out both.

Hoosiers’ late comeback (fueled by Michigan misses) falls short

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Indiana came closer than it should have to taking the lead in Saturday afternoon’s game, and Michigan came much closer than it should have to giving it away.

But despite a miserable second-half performance at the free throw line, the Wolverines held Indiana off with a 73-69 victory in front of 13,751 at Crisler Arena.

The Wolverines led by 22 points with just 5:26 to go in the game, but the Hoosiers began attacking with a full-court press and promptly went on a 10-0 spurt that eventually extended to a 21-3 run, cutting the deficit to 69-65 with 41 seconds to go. (more…)
