    I believe Indiana will look much better today than they did in Puerto Rico. Partly because they are playing a much easier opponent and partly because Crean has had almost a full week to make some changes. Hopefully he shortens the rotation and plays the starters more minutes. With the exception of Pritchard he should mix Derek Elston and Bobby C. in frequently to work on a possible new starting 5. GO IU GOOD LUCK TODAY

    In order to beat Md or anybody for that matter I will be watching to see if we can show:

    1) stifling defense
    2) inside offense
    3) 3pt shooting

    Since the first 10 minutes of the Miss game I have been unimpressed with the up tempo and dribble drive as our “identity”. Without defense to get stops and TO's this kind of offense will be as successful as UCONN was last night against Duke

  • I see DJ still got that baseline jumper. Nice to see him get some PT

    I'm expecting about a 20 point game, I think these kids have been listening to the crap all week and have something to prove. Look for Watford to return to form against smaller players. Freshmen can look oh so good and then oh so bad. I'm going to make it down for the Maryland game Tuesday night.

    Northwestern may be a little tougher than we thought after the beatdown on Notre Dame last night.
