Podcast on the Brink is back for a new episode with hosts Jerod Morris of The Assembly Call and Alex Bozich of Inside the Hall. The show is available weekly.

In this edition of the show, Morris and Bozich are joined by Ryan Corazza of Inside the Hall to discuss Indiana’s 3-2 start in Big Ten play. Among the topics discussed:

· Indiana’s response in their last two games following the loss to Wisconsin in Madison
· How the Hoosiers are finding ways to win despite poor shooting
· The impact of losing De’Ron Davis and why Indiana has been able to win two games without him
· What the KenPom numbers – turnover percentage and defensive rebounding percentage – say about Indiana’s ability to compete in the Big Ten the rest of the way
· Is Indiana a better 3-point shooting team than the numbers say?
· Juwan Morgan’s play as of late and whether the Hoosiers can continue to play him this many minutes
· How the Hoosiers will have to adjust defensively against teams with better frontcourts

And much, much more. As always, feel free to drop the show a note at [email protected].

    to say they’re a better 3-pt team than the numbers thus far have shown doesn’t necessarily say a whole lot. how much better might be a more appropriate question to ask. individually, i’ll say JM is better than his numbers, but that’s about it. then again, his shot has noticeably improved over the past couple games. RJ’s stroke, on the other hand, looks different every time he shoots. and it’s kind of the same with JN, he never seems to be set, even when he’s got plenty of room to shoot. and DG is streaky, though i do believe he’ll develop into a consistent 3-pt shooter.

    Hard to say the team is better from the 3 when the sample size is over half the season. Historically we are better than 30.5%, but I don’t see this team ever being a great shooting team. If we could just shoot 35% the rest of the way that would probably be worth a win or two.

  • That is the entire point I was making. 🙂

    They miss the shot doctor, havent seen improved mechanics or 3 point shooting from any player this season. Is no one working with them on this?

    IMHO—-If I was Archie, I would tell a recruit from New Albany that we need a shooter a la James Blackman. I can’t help but think that (1) it is important for recruits to win and (2) high level recruits want their hands on the ball. This team needs a shooting guard and wings with 3 point skills at +40%. I am encouraged to hear the shooting ability of incoming class.

    If you look up some my old posts you will see all of the reasons it makes sense for Romeo to go to IU vs. Vandy and KU, but I think he is going to Vandy.
