POTB 150: What IU’s win over Kansas means moving forward

  • 11/14/2016 12:45 pm in

Podcast on the Brink is back for a new episode with host Jerod Morris of The Assembly Call. The show is now available weekly.

In this week’s edition of the show, Morris and Inside the Hall editor Alex Bozich recap Indiana’s 103-99 overtime win against Kansas on Friday in the Armed Forces Classic. Among the topics discussed:

· The importance of beating a team like Kansas early in the season
· The play of James Blackmon Jr. and his assertiveness in taking clutch shots
· How OG Anunoby impacted the game without taking a lot of shots
· Thomas Bryant’s first half performance and his versatility
· Juwan Morgan as Indiana’s Draymond Green “lite”
· IU’s inability to stop guard penetration against Kansas and whether it’s a concern moving forward
· Turnovers, IU’s poor shooting percentage and other areas for improvement
· Is Curtis Jones the next great IU guard?

And plenty more. As always, feel free to drop the show a note at jerod@assemblycall.com.

    Best case scenario, Kansas beats Duke and makes us look even better. The Assembly Hall advantage should help against UNC on the 30th.

    Indiana moves up to #5 in my poll. #6 in the AP Poll.

  • ITH wasn’t actually in Hawaii? Couldn’t tell from the coverage, it was excellent as always.

    Great show guys. Everything I was thinking. We saw what we needed to see. With more practice and experience, this team will get much better.
    Crean has made this program an incubator for basketball talent to become serious players!

    I think we don’t lose if we win in the Rebound department. You can make one or two small exceptions in road big ten trap games that are grinded out and left for the home advantage refs to decide. Let’s hope we can keep getting a little smoother play making and ball handling. We can be a great rebounding team. Our strength stands out to me talking rebounding and taking contact near the basket. Top 3 if not best in conference, easy. This is a different year and it could work into our favor if we work ou the right kinks moving forward..

    And I hate to storm into negative “what ifs” and this is my own personal paranoia coming out.. we have to stay healthy!!
    I say this with the thought of being without a senior Colin Hartman. His rawness would add another edge to this blade. Imagine how deep we would be with him..

    Myself, myself and myself.

    “This hasn’t played even close to their best basketball yet and they just beat Kansas.” -Alex.
    This is what excites me so much! Well said!

  • #4 Oregon just got dropped. Here’s to losses for both kuntecky and dook tonight! Top 5 here we come.
