Film Session: Minnesota

  • 01/17/2016 1:38 pm in

Yogi Ferrell’s second half performance ensured Indiana escaped Minnesota with its fifth straight conference victory on Saturday afternoon.

In 19 of the half’s 20 minutes, Ferrell had 12 points, four assists, two steals and zero turnovers — making a number of key plays to keep the Golden Gophers at distance.

We’ll take a look at his second half performance in the latest edition of Film Session:

Ferrell, as he did for most of the half, zooms up the court after a Max Bielfeldt rebound and outlet:


Ferrell puts the brakes on once he hits the perimeter. Bielfeldt catches up and heads to set a pick on Nate Mason:


Ferrell stays high and looks to sneak around Joey King:


Bielfeldt quickly slips the screen and Ferrell wraps a one-handed bounce pass to him as the help side defense comes:


It all gets done so quick that Bielfeldt is able to go up and score without any real resistance:


High-level execution from the Hoosiers here.

    He was/is a beast. I can’t imagine trying to defend Yogi for 40 minutes. Glad he’s a Hoosier!

    Have to find a way to play well while resting YF. Exhaustion leads to injuries. Take care of our AA.

    Yogi was FANTASTIC yesterday. He really led the team to the win – with his effort, with his scoring, with his play making for others… he has really matured as a player over the years and it really showed with his leadership against Minnesota.

    Yogi is one of the best to ever play at IU. Yogi, you are great and enjoy the moment when you are inducted to IU’s Hall of Fame. Great luck during the NCAA tourney.

    No backup PG.

    Come on man,,IU is 15-3 and 5-0 in the Big Ten. Everyone is happy about that.

    Good point but have to have a scheme where two 2’s (TW and RJ) can be successful (e.g. motion and post up offense). Otherwise, YF is going to run out of gas against the better teams especially late in the season.
