Five takeaways from Indiana’s loss to Wake Forest


Indiana dropped its opener in the 2015 Maui Jim Maui Invitational on Monday with an 82-78 loss to Wake Forest at the Lahaina Civic Center.

Here’s a look at five takeaways from the loss to the Demon Deacons:

· Indiana’s ball pressure and defense has a long way to go: Through three games, Indiana’s defense looked improved.

On Monday, the Hoosiers took a step back when they allowed Wake Forest to drive uncontested into the lane repeatedly and score easily at the basket. Danny Manning’s team kept going to what was working for a majority of the game: Get into the lane and finish at the rim.

In their final exhibition tuneup before Friday’s season opener, Indiana beat Division II No. 4 Bellarmine 73-62 on Monday night at Assembly Hall.

It was a tale of two teams for IU between the first and second half of Monday’s exhibition finale against Bellarmine, the No. 4 team in NCAA Division II.

The Hoosiers held on to win 73-62, but were outscored in the second half 42-38. That fact left IU’s veterans unsatisfied with the effort.

As Troy Williams stood next to Yogi Ferrell and Nick Zeisloft on Saturday night as they argued over who is the team’s best shooter after a three-way tie in the men’s 3-point shootout, the Hoosiers junior had one comment.

“I’m just here so I don’t get fined,” he said with a laugh.
