ScoopTalk: We’ll sell out for your diced veggies


Ohio State 69, Indiana 52

Emptying the bench.

It has happened.

I’ve run out of things to say.

Indiana did not create effective offense. It did not guard. It lost.

That’s five in a row.

Ken Bikoff of Inside Indiana has just informed me of a most incredible stat: IU’s basketball and football teams are a combined 22-56 over the past two seasons, for a winning percentage of 28.2 percent.

The box score will tell you more.

[8:45 UPDATE]

Hey, here’s Thad Matta. Perhaps he will tell us more, as well.

He told his players it would be tough to play here.

He told them they’d have to be in attack mode (They listened.)

Dallas Lauderdale had a career high 14 points. He also had seven blocks, and Indiana had nine shots total blocked for the second straight game.

A limited-by-early-fouls Evan Turner had a nice balanced line: 10 points, seven rebounds, six assists, two blocks and a steal.

[9:23 UPDATE]

Tom Crean finally arrives. He apologizes for the delay, but says that getting his team’s mentality back to where it needs to be is most important now.

“There’s no excuse for not playing better tonight,” he said. “We don’t have anything in the tank to fall back on when things aren’t going well for us.”

UPDATE, 11:13 p.m.

And after finishing our stories and ScoopTalk, we have audio.

AUDIO: Thad Matta talks about the 12-0 run that gave OSU the win

AUDIO: Tom Crean talks about fixing the team’s mentality

AUDIO: Verdell Jones says it doesn’t seem like the Hoosiers were there

From above!


Ohio State at Indiana: Discuss it here


Gordon selected to USA roster

When USA Basketball announced the 27 members of their national team Wednesday, Eric Gordon was among them.

The second-year pro, averaging 17 points a game for the Los Angeles Clippers, has a chance to be on the 12-man roster that represents USA during the 2012 Olympics.

More immediately, a group will be selected to attend a minicamp in July and then play in Turkey for the world championship. USA has not won that tournament since 1994.


Ooh … I see what she did there

Suddenly, hours before Duke and UNC meet up once again, I feel like I am at home. Thank you, Jeopardy and random college kid.
