2016 guard Bruce Brown commits to Miami

Class of 2016 Vermont Academy guard Bruce Brown committed to the University of Miami in an announcement today at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut.

The 6-foot-3 guard, who took an official visit to Indiana in early October, chose the Hurricanes over the Hoosiers, Xavier, Purdue and UMass.


Film Session: Austin Peay

While I wrote in Monday evening’s The Minute After that Indiana’s defense was an “after thought” in its win over Austin Peay, a closer inspection of the film reveals I was a little off.

Indiana’s effort was there, but its execution was not. Dave Loos and his Governors were well prepared for Indiana’s newfound aggression on the perimeter and Austin Peay simply countered IU’s tight perimeter defense and overplaying of the passing lanes with some nice back cuts.

It’s something Indiana can learn from on a film watch.

We’ll take a look at some of that back cutting from the Governors as well as some other defensive miscues from the Hoosiers in the latest edition of Film Session:
