The Minute After: Arkansas State

Thoughts on an 87-70 win against Arkansas State: This one was volatile. Indiana came out flat, didn’t hustle for loose balls, missed shots and turned the ball over. It had problems figuring out Arkansas State’s zone and played from behind ...

The Minute After: South Florida

Thoughts on a 70-53 win against the Bulls: As the Hoosiers entered halftime down 34-33, another 20 minutes defined by sloppy turnovers and not-up-to-Archie-Miller standards on defense, it seemed a real possibility Indiana could start this season 1-3. But the Hoosiers ...

The Minute After: Seton Hall

Thoughts on an 84-68 loss to the Pirates: Finally. After 80 minutes of ho-hum basketball from the Hoosiers at home, Indiana shook off the cobwebs in its first road contest of the season and got after it on the court. ...

The Minute After: Howard

Thoughts on an 86-77 win against the Bison: This one goes down in the books as a W, one sorely needed after Indiana’s surprising season-opening loss to Indiana State on Friday night. But that doesn’t mean it came with ease ...

The Minute After: Indiana State

Thoughts on a 90-69 loss to the Sycamores: Welp. This was not what anyone was expecting. The Sycamores came into Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall tonight and blew the doors off the Hoosiers, as the Archie Miller era got off to a ...

The Minute After: University of Indianapolis

Thoughts on a 74-53 win over the Greyhounds: I. After last weekend’s exhibition win against Marian, I noted freshmen Justin Smith’s and Clifton Moore’s continual improvement throughout the season might be key to Indiana establishing some frontcourt depth behind De’Ron ...

The Minute After: Marian University

Thoughts on a 93-62 win against the Knights: I. For two years running, Devonte Green’s lit up Hoosier Hysteria. Last year, he followed it up with an uneven rookie campaign, drawing the ire of his former coach for freshman mistakes. ...

The Minute After: Georgia Tech

Thoughts on a 75-63 loss to Georgia Tech: All those months ago, coming back from Hawaii on a high from the Kansas win, the Hoosiers stopped in Phoenix en route back to Bloomington. “We wouldn’t mind coming back here sometime,” ...

The Minute After: Wisconsin

Thoughts on a 70-60 loss to the Badgers: After back-to-back 3-pointers by Zak Showalter and D’Mitrik Trice put the Badgers up 15 with 8:14 to go, this one looked just about done. The Hoosiers had scored 90-plus points in their ...

The Minute After: Iowa

Thoughts on a 95-73 win over the Hawkeyes: Don’t look now, but the Hoosiers are in the midst of a mini-run. Who knows where this team was during the doldrums of the Big Ten season. But for the here and ...

The Minute After: Ohio State

Thoughts on a 96-92 win against the Buckeyes: In a season the Hoosiers have regressed from an elite 3-point shooting squad to merely a pretty good one, the 3s were dropping like crazy early and often at Value City Arena. ...

The Minute After: Purdue

Thoughts on an 86-75 loss to Purdue: In front of a raucous Paint Crew on senior night with Purdue going for a share of the Big Ten title, the Hoosiers put up a fight and keep it somewhat interesting for a ...

The Minute After: Northwestern

Thoughts on a 63-62 win over Northwestern: Indiana looked finished. And the Assembly Hall faithful headed for the exits. The Hoosiers trailed Northwestern 62-55 with 1:33 to play. A sixth straight loss looked like a near certainty. But Indiana kept plugging ...
