SAINT-LAMBERT, Quebec — Indiana’s five-game Canadian tour continued on Sunday afternoon with a 109-101 loss to the University of Ottawa at Champlain Saint Lambert College.

Inside the Hall was there for all of the action and have edited together two minutes of highlights, which are available below. Please note that Big Ten rules prevent us from showing more than two minutes per game on the trip.

    Win or lose, these highlights were more entertaining than the majority of last years games. I think these highlights show the type of team we will have this year. Lost of driving and kicking it out style. Throw Hanner in there, and this years squad is going to be fun to watch!

    I don’t know if Tim Priller is ready to play B1G defense, but I do know this: at about the 1:00 mark, he gets the ball in the corner and Hoetzel immediately puts his hand up and leans towards the other end of the court like he is sure the ball is going in (which it does). Between that and Yogi’s famous “don’t let him catch the ball” quote, it’s pretty clear that those who know have serious respect for his shooting. He may be one-dimensional, but it is apparently quite a dimension.

    nice to finally see some oops – we’ve had some great athletes the last few years but that’s been missing. keeps defenses honest and its fun to watch!

    Watching the ChickenTwittles cry the sky is falling really makes me want to shove this down their throats. Obviously defense is going to be an issue – but sheesh… we have a 7 footer and 6’9″ beast not on the court… that changes the dynamics a bit.

    But daaaayyyyuuummmmmm…. the slashing and oops and Hanner wasn’t even there! clearly there are going to be guys other than Yogi that will see that play and MAKE that play… Yogi has been horrible almost every time he has tried “ooopping” – right up there with some of his walenda’s. If Troy and Hanner learn how to shoot those gaps and stay out of each other’s way – we might not win that many but they will be a feast for the eyes.

    But there is so much more to enjoy on the offensive side and Alex’s tweet about the Zeisloft for Austin trade (not really, obviously) being net positive is so true. It seems like these guys either feed off of each other or all came in with some gunslinging swagger, but man I now think that the energy we saw last year was the worst of the Bob Knight years when players’ were overthinking and/or scared of their own shadow.

    And even if the D was lacking on the perimeter, it seems like Ottawa just flat out was absurdly HOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTT!

    Troy Williams. Good Lord………

  • Wow, that is all I can say. I mean I know this is just a highlight reel, but geeeeez, finally seeing some ‘alleyoop’ stuff with all that athleticism. If we can put some ‘D’ in the game, we’ll be a tough out this year. Just saying Crean and the players blamed the loss on over helping and leaving their man open, and Crean indicated we got pretty tired from the pace in the fourth quarter.. Think that game was very winnable.. But this is just a scrimmage.. really. I know they all wanted to win them all, but wasn’t Ottawa one of the teams that beat Wiscy on their tour last year? I think Crean mentioned it was 102 to 92 last year against Wisconsin. Did I her that right on the video? I know Carleton did beat them, but I thought Crean said this team had also. They’re goin’ to be fun to watch this year.

    Or throw in this guy: http://athlonsports.com/kasongo-could-be-difference-maker

    Sport247 just switched his lead school from Kansas to IU and he’d be able to play this year.

  • CreamandCrimson

    Good point…the guys who have seen him play a whole lot more than any of us have tell the story. If a guy is going to do only one thing really well (not to say he can’t develop the rest of his game), 3-point shooting is a great skill to start with.

  • SCHoosier

    Ironically..with the speed and style of these Canadian games..not sure IU is missing anything by not havin Hanner and April in the game. Could they keep up with the pace? Just kidding sort of..those two need all the game action they can get. Troy is showing major aggressiveness..altho neither opposing team will win any medals for defense/blocking out thus far. Kinda look like “All-Star” games if you know what I mean.

  • iudawg

    We got some shooters this year! Last year there were so many penetrate, dish to a guy, and guy doesn’t shoot. Nicky Z for 3!

  • RMK

    Noticed this myself…. Someone posted a vine of him on twitter shooting them right handed in practice. He looks good doing it. Can’t say I remember any player change shooting hands for long range jumpers. Especially when he was extremely left handed to begin with.

  • Hoosier Hall

    The guy is obviously a known set shooter and with his height, that is a big deal. The only negative thing I’ve noticed about him so far is he has terrible footwork and is a little slow. He looked very awkward compared to the rest of our athletic crew. That will no doubt correct itself if he puts in the work and he will be a very dangerous guy in 2015/16.

  • FinEndNow

    Im loving the 24 second shot clock. I hope our guys have the same shooting mentality during the season. No reason to be scared to shoot like everyone was last year. The shot clock of course forces the overall tempo of the game(even though you can run a very efficient half court offense with a 24 second shot clock).

  • FinEndNow

    As long as it works. I just got to watch the video. I watched that one part like 30 times. Couldn’t believe it.

  • JBishop0425

    Very Impressive, Though I still give the hulls left handed 3 pointer more thumbs up. But that was a bit lucky.

  • Bryce Kepner

    One thing I did notice yesterday during the live tweet of the game is that they said he has one of the quickest releases

  • INUnivHoosier

    It’s never fun to lose, but at least they looked pretty good for at minimum a total of two minutes.

  • notfargj

    Totally agree, these highlights were extremely entertaining. Frankly, I was surprised by what I just watched. What’s more, I’m starting to believe there’s a whole lot of promise with this team.

    I’m a little late to the party on a subsequent comment but – as N71 pointed out below – there’s a pretty intriguing story developing in the college basketball recruiting world with Ray Kasongo, a 6’9″ power forward. Evidently, he was an Oregon commit who reopened his recruitment last month and, from what I read this morning, he visited Kansas on Friday, has since backed off and according to ESPN recruiting held offers from both UCONN and Arizona, among others.

    What’s really interesting is 8 predictions have quickly surfaced on 247 sports in the past 48 hours that have him coming to IU. Should this be the case, I would think there’d be even more hope for our Hoosiers.

  • INUnivHoosier

    If I’m remembering right, I was thinking Hanner can get up and down the court pretty quickly; he just can’t always sustain it for long periods.

    It might have been interesting to get a taste of him moving in that type of offense for more than two minutes at a time.

    Folks, Alex just retweeted Jack Osterman who says you can get live audio of the game (Carleton) here (remove the white spaces from the url below):

    I’m listening right now …

  • Alford Bailey

    WHAT?? I’m cautiously optimistic about next year but if Crean lands this guy I’m officially back on the wagon. Would be a HUGE get.

  • WhatsUpKnight

    can’t believe nobody’s mentioned mad max yet. kid’s got a super quick release, and made a couple of those 3’s under pressure. and maybe more importantly, he looks comfortable out there. looks like someone who’s going to translate to the college game quickly. granted, i’m speculating quite a bit from a 2 minute highlight reel

  • HannerTime Hoosier

    Hmmm, Zeller won the 3 pt contest & only shot like 5 threes all year. Really do not see any player over 6’8″ shooting many 3’s under CTC’s watch.

  • E Foy McNaughton

    I’m really, really looking forward to November … Yogi – JBJ – RJ – Nick – Max – TP —- six legit long range shooters

  • Bryce Kepner

    He is officially down to IU and LSU

  • Bryce Kepner

    Thats what Priller was brought in for, for his shooting. He shot 50% from 3 as a senior!!!

  • notfargj

    From the little I’ve read thus far, IU is in the driver’s seat. At this point, I’d be a little surprised if he went anywhere else.

  • HannerTime Hoosier

    Hey, if it all unfolds to your expectations, then great. I even think Hanner can develop a 3 pt stroke as he looks solid on FTs. Gonna have to see how CTC pieces this team together this year.
