An early look at the 2010-2011 frontcourt

So piggybacking off Alex’s good work yesterday in filling the summer malaise with some solid depth chart discussion as we hit July, let us open our textbooks to chapter two. Last season’s frontcourt was something of a mixed bag, with ...

Free throws, empty possessions spoil IU’s upset bid

Bloomington, Ind. — Assembly Hall reached perhaps its highest decibel level of the season at the 5:44 mark of the second half. The Hoosiers had just taken a 69-66 lead over Purdue on a Jordan Hulls 3-pointer. Indiana had scored ...

Measuring the progress of Tom Pritchard

Remember when Tom Pritchard was the future? No seriously, remember when he was the next prototype Indiana big man—not big or nimble enough to just dominate, but automatic to the point of getting his numbers every single night. Or at ...

Good, Bad and Ugly: Bryant

THE GOOD: THE START. If there was anything Indiana needed to key on in this game, anything Tom Crean likely would be pleased to see, it was a good start by the Hoosiers. I know this is Bryant College, a ...

Good, Bad and Ugly: Ole Miss

THE GOOD: FIRST FIVE MINUTES. This is what this Hoosiers team can be. Running the break efficiently, not letting teams get set up on D, pushing the pace, getting controlled buckets in transition with Jeremiah Rivers and Verdell Jones leading ...
