Film Session: Night of the living Pritch

  • 02/04/2011 4:48 pm in

Wednesday’s win against the Gophers saw Indiana scoring points off turnovers and getting key offensive contributions from some different contributors.

A look at this in the latest edition of Film Session.

NO. 1) DEFENSE TURNS INTO OFFENSE

This sequence starts off with a mismatch as Victor Oladipo guards the larger Colton Iverson. But Oladipo fronts him and steals the entry pass:

Oladipo advances the ball over halfcourt and passes to Verdell Jones:

Facing a double-team, Jones kicks back to Oladipo:

Who kicks to Hulls:

Minnesota’s defense isn’t quite set due to Indiana pushing the ball down the court. Indiana also has a small lineup in outside of Bobby Capobianco, so Iverson has to shift up to mark Hulls. Hulls goes left and crosses Iverson over:

TheĀ fourth-most efficient shooter in the nation creates space for a 15-foot jumper and hits:

POSSESSION IN FULL (AUDIO IS OFF, SORRY):

NO. 2: SKIP PASS FOR A ROTH THREE

Roth, guarded in the corner by Iverson, is forced to give the ball up:

He dribbles out and passes out to Jeremiah Rivers:

Rivers swings the ball to Hulls:

Hulls gets two bodies on him, dribbles to the top of the key and throw a skip pass down to an open Roth in the corner:

Roth gets off a nice look before Iverson is able to close and hits:

Nice recognition from Hulls to get the ball to a shooter in space to attack Minnesota’s zone.

IN FULL:

NO. 3: THE PRITCH TIP-IN/DUNK-IN HIGHLIGHT REEL

    What, no replay or commentary about Oladipo’s nerf style jam and way over exaggerated hang on the rim? As arrogant of a move as it was I was still giddy despite the technical……especially when Hoffaurber biffed both freebies. Literally…no harm no foul.

    Off topic, do you offer an IU ITH T-shirt for sale? I’d buy and wear to every game. Might help increase those hits?!

    Minnesota sure is an odd team. On paper you would think they’d be a top-10 team but they play too many big guys in the starting lineup so they get out-quicked against a team like IU. They’d be better off brining Iverson or Sampson off the bench with the second unit because they shouldn’t be playing Mbakwe at the 3. I kind of wish that we could trade them one of our perimeter players for one of their bigs. Like a Roth and Capobianco for Iverson deal. I might even do a VJIII for Iverson deal straight up although I’d prefer Sampson.

    Anyways, much better spacing consistently for the Hoosiers. Things run much more smoothly when Hulls is handling the ball. I was happy to see VJIII giving the ball to Hulls to run the show, too. I wish they’d take the 11 minutes that Moore played and give them to VO and Sheehey. Things dry up on the offensive end quickly when it’s Hulls, Moore, Roth, Elston and TP.

    Hmmm, what a great idea eh Alex?

  • We did some time ago, but have since stopped selling them due to lack of interest.

    Count me as a prospective customer, especially if they are printed on American Apparel shirts. Then I would buy a few.

    I would be interested as well. What a great idea to bring back Alex. Especially considering all the readers you have gained in the past year.
