Communication had long been a point of emphasis for the Indiana Hoosiers, especially on the defensive end.
It has gotten better, which has led to good zone defense in wins against top-25 opponents like Illinois and Minnesota, assistant coach Tim Buckley said moments ago during the Big Ten conference call.
“I think they have done a really good job of communicating better,” Buckley said. “With maybe the exception of the game on Saturday, we’ve played some better second-half defense. Which is away from the bench, which requires those five guys to be together.”

Iowa continued to have Indiana’s number on Saturday, beating the Hoosiers 64-63 at Assembly Hall.
The Hawkeyes have won four in a row against the Hoosiers (12-12, 3-8 Big Ten), but this one was the closest.
Bryce Cartwright made a jumper from near the baseline with 1:28 remaining to give Iowa a 64-63 lead.
Verdell Jones missed a jump shot, but Indiana created a stop on defense and got the ball back with 27 seconds remaining.
That’s when things got weird: Indiana dribbled out 13 seconds before calling a timeout.
Jeremiah Rivers inbounded the ball to Jones, who waved off Rivers. After a few fruitless passes, Indiana coach Tom Crean called another timeout and was furious over what had happened.
With only four seconds remaining, Rivers got the ball to Jones, who worked to his right and took a midrange jumper. It rimmed out, and Victor Oladipo could not get the attempted put-back to fall.
Jones took Indiana’s last three shots, all of the misses, and finished 1-of-9 from the field in 21 minutes.
Hulls led the Hoosiers and tied his career-high with 24 points — including four 3-pointers.
Indiana led by as much as 10, as recently as when there was just 7:47 remaining in the game.
