Film Session: Iowa

io21

In its 14-point loss to Iowa on Tuesday night, Indiana’s offense hit a cold spell, as it made just two fields goals over the final 10:16 of the first half. Several players also had rough shooting nights, such as Troy Williams, who went 3-of-13 from the field despite a number of looks around the rim.

On the other end, Aaron White scored 21 points thanks to some favorable matchups.

We’ll take a look three White scores and some missed lay-ups by the Hoosiers in the latest edition of Film Session:

On Iowa’s second possession of the game, White posts Yogi Ferrell up on the left high post, one of the areas he likes operating from:

With the rest of Iowa’s starting lineup on the weakside of the court, White receives the entry pass:

From there, White uses his size to back Ferrell down:

Five takeaways from Indiana’s loss to Iowa

IUIowa0044

Indiana fell 77-63 to Iowa on Tuesday night at Assembly Hall and the loss dropped the Hoosiers to 19-11 overall and 9-8 in Big Ten play.

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

· Indiana needed to play with urgency and it exhibited none: On a night where Indiana needed to raise its level of play from where it was for most of last Wednesday’s game in Evanston, the Hoosiers simply failed to respond to the challenge. A win would have likely put Indiana safely in the NCAA tournament and quieted talk, at least for a night, that this team was folding down the stretch.

Instead, Indiana was humbled against an Iowa team that, quite frankly, didn’t even need to play its best game to beat the Hoosiers handily in Assembly Hall. This was a significant departure from IU’s losses earlier in the season at home to Eastern Washington and Purdue. Once Iowa took control early in the second half, it never relented because Indiana never put up a fight.

In Sunday’s pregame press conference, both Tom Crean and Yogi Ferrell both said that Indiana had practiced well and appeared ready to meet the challenge. That may have been true at the time the words were spoken, but none of it carried over to the court and it left Indiana fans who were in attendance annoyed at what they were witnessing. That feeling was understandable.

Five takeaways from Indiana’s win over Minnesota

IUMinn0036

Indiana moved to 18-8 overall and 8-5 in Big Ten play with a 90-71 beatdown of Minnesota on Sunday night at Assembly Hall.

Here’s a look at five takeaways from the win over the Golden Gophers:

· A record-setting shooting performance: The Hoosiers have been one of the nation’s best 3-point shooting teams all season, but Sunday night’s performance set a new high mark for the program. Indiana hit 18 of its 32 attempts from distance against the Gophers which broke the single-game record previously set at 17.

James Blackmon Jr. hit six 3s, but nearly all of IU’s shooters got into the act as Robert Johnson hit five, Nick Zeisloft, Collin Hartman and Troy Williams each hit two and Yogi Ferrell hit one.

“The ball just has to move,” Tom Crean said of the performance. “That’s what it is more than anything else. A lot of that 3-point shooting, that’s just what we do. It’s not like they were set play calls for a 3. It’s about the movement.”

· IU’s freshman guards bounce back: Both Blackmon Jr. and Johnson struggled with their shooting in IU’s 68-66 loss on Wednesday at Maryland, but the duo put that performance in the rearview mirror from the onset on Sunday.
