    I noticed some odd substitution/lineup moves made by Crean tonight:

    a) Pritchard coming off the bench before Elston
    b) Remy/Jordy/VJ3 all on the floor at the same time
    c) Roth inserted while NC State playing man-to-man and yanked shortly after they switched to a zone (whaaaaat?!  that’s when he’s the most valuable!)

    Thoughts?

    My ex-girlfriend was just an IU fan….but my current girlfriend is an IU graduate. That’s what you call trading up!

    Certainly suspect at times. But I just have to trust in CTC.

    It was great to see the team finish a game like that.  These guys are fun to watch.  Some thoughts on the game…..

    – missed the first 5 minutes since ESPN said the game started at 7:30, but started before that
    – loved the minutes from Remy in the 1st half, good effort
    – loved the effort from Watford tonight….he looked fired up on defense and rebounding, especially in the 2nd half
    – CZ and JH…..willed this game to a win
    – VO and WS…..good effort as well (loved the exclamation point in the end by Victor!)
    – VJ3….love the kid, but we finally pulled away at the end when he went to the bench….not sure he deserved the minutes he got tonight
    – officials……thought IU got the raw end of most of the calls tonight

    Overall, great win on the road against a very athletic team.  Can’t wait for the UK game, the hall will be rockin!

    Pritchard earned it against Butler, he played his butt off.  I’m not sure about putting him in at the end though.  He is a pretty descent defender, but if he gets a board and they foul we are screwed.  Remy played very well when he was in.  I’m not sure about the Roth thing though.

    By the way, if some of you haven’t updated the page in the last few minutes, “The Minute After” is up.

    I was fine with Pritch coming in before Elston, just pointing out that it was the first time I think that’s happened this year.  The Butler game, as you pointed out, is probably why though.
