Film Session: Evansville

  • 11/18/2011 1:53 pm in

Indiana shot 19-of-32 in the first half against Evansville en route to 51 points and a 24-point halftime lead.

Several of their looks were open and came with ease. A look at three such shots in the latest edition of Film Session.

1) HIGH-LOW ACTION

Jordan Hulls brings the ball down the court and dumps it off to Verdell Jones over on the right wing:

Jones dribbles up top and kicks back over to Hulls. Meanwhile, Watford gets inside position:

Zeller flashes to the free-throw line and Hulls passes the ball to him:

He immediately throws it over the top to Watford:

Who coverts for two:

This is the first time this season we’ve seen a little high-low action between Zeller and Watford. Notice Zeller throws a nice ball deep enough that Watford is put in position to catch, make a move and score.

POSSESSION IN FULL:

2) ROTH’S THREE

Off a Zeller rebound, he outlets the ball to Jones who pushes it up the court:

Jones passes to Roth on the left wing:

Roth passes back to Jones and Sheehey sets a ball screen for him:

Jones passes to Sheehey. Because of the pick action, Sheehey gets a little space, so Denver Holmes — who had been marking Roth — comes to meet Sheehey:

It’s just a simple pass from the wing to the corner for Sheehey. And Roth fires:

Converting for three:

Because the Hoosiers pushed the pace here and got into offensive action early, it didn’t really allow Evansville to get completely set on D. Which helped lead to an easy look for Roth.

POSSESSION IN FULL:

3) DEFENSE INTO OFFENSE

Victor Oladipo bodies Colt Ryan:

Ryan tries to come baseline, but is cut off by Zeller:

After Ryan passes to Matt Peeler, Zeller turns around and swats his shot:

And it’s off to the races again for Indiana:

With the defense not set, Jones finds Hulls on the right wing:

And Hulls rises and fires for three:

Haven’t highligthed much defense in Film Session yet this season, but here’s a good example of solid team defense leading to the break and an easy bucket.

    Nice. Thanks. A much appreciated feature.

    Interesting to note that it was probably easy to do on this game.

    You could probably have picked most any possession in the first 30 minutes and and it would have looked “clinical.”

    This is one of the many great features on this site. Keep ’em coming.

    Another example of why this is the best site for Hoosier basketball….PERIOD!

    This is a great feature but when you take into account that some of us did not get to see the game at all it becomes even more of a great feature.

    Love to look at the game during and especially afterwards from the technical aspect and this allows us the opportunity to replay it, stop it, or even back it up a little bit to analyze things. Guess at least a little bit of the coaching part of me will always be there.

  • Also caught on film in clip #3, Zeller leading the team across the half-court line on the fast break, despite starting the transition under the basket, and causing all 3 UE defenders to collapse on him and leave the perimeter unguarded.

    See Cody run. See IU score.

    As I have stated before, Cody merely changes EVERYTHING! Love this feature.
