Notebook: Hoosiers looking for expanded role from Devin Davis

AW4R9516a

With Indiana’s current lack of an effective big man on its trip to Montreal, the Hoosiers are looking for someone to step in and fill that role. Cue rising sophomore Devin Davis.

In the Hoosiers’ first game of their Canada tour, Davis grabbed 16 rebounds. Against Carleton on Monday, he scored 13 points and recorded six rebounds. The 6-foot-7 rising sophomore started in Indiana’s 96-69 win over McGill University on Tuesday night, as well, scoring seven points but earning just three rebounds in 22 minutes of action.

Following last night’s contest, Indiana coach Tom Crean shared optimism about Davis for this upcoming season.

“I think he has worked hard at it but there is a lot of room for him to work even harder and develop,” Crean said. “I thought tonight was his best game, offensively, although last night was his best game `intent-wise’. What he wants to erase is having 16 rebounds in 19 minutes the first night and then three rebounds in 22 minutes the next night. Those are the inconsistencies that he wants to erase.”

The Minute After: McGill

AO0R7279

MONTREAL — Thoughts on a 96-69 win over McGill University:

Unlike Sunday afternoon in Saint-Lambert, Quebec and Monday evening in Ottawa, Ontario, Indiana received little in terms of a test as it returned to Montreal for the fourth game of its Canadian tour.

The Hoosiers, who came into Love Competition Hall on the campus of McGill sporting a 2-1 record on their trip, dominated the Redmen, who lacked the athleticism to contain IU’s array of perimeter options.

From a team perspective, there was plenty to like in this performance from Indiana. The offense wasn’t nearly as good as what we witnessed Monday night against Carleton, but it was still quite solid. The Hoosiers scored 1.10 points per possession with an effective field goal percentage of 54, while limiting the Redmen to .85 points per trip and an eFG percentage of just 43.3.

Indiana also did a solid job grabbing the shots that it did miss as evidenced by its offensive rebounding percentage of 46.1. And while the free throw rate (FTA/FGA) wasn’t as high as Tom Crean would like at just 21.3 percent, the Hoosiers did make 15 of their 16 attempts at the stripe.

On the downside of things, Indiana was sloppy with the ball quite often this evening and turned it over 23 times for a turnover percentage of 27.2. Crean said afterward that many of those were unforced and a film session with this young group will show far too many occasions where a ball handler went airborne without anywhere to go. These are the types of mistakes that haunted Indiana a season ago and are exactly the kind of mishaps that can be the difference in tight games when the regular season rolls around.
