Film Session: Problems at Purdue

  • 02/17/2014 8:58 am in

The Boilermakers ran the Hoosiers out of Mackey Arena on Saturday afternoon by a score of 82-64. It was a rough one for IU, as poor communication, missed lay-ups and some stagnant offense in the second half led to the blowout loss.

A look at some of their issues in the second half in the latest edition of Film Session:

Yogi Ferrell drops in IU’s first field goal of the second half with a trey from the left corner:


But on the other end, Indiana’s D give two points right back. Bryson Scott brings the ball up the right wing as Ferrell begins to sweep through. Jeff Howard, Jeremy Hollowell and Stanford Robinson are in a line at the top of the key:


But no one talks and picks up the ball and Scott starts to make a move off the perimeter. Howard recognizes that no one picked up the ball, but he’s still several feet away when Scott attacks:


Howard does a decent job of getting his hands up and distrupting the shot:


But Scott hits the shot:


While Howard was able to recover somewhat here, Indiana’s inability to simply pick up the opposition’s ballhander at the onset of the possession meant Purdue quickly picked up two points.

    Something just doesn’t add up. This is reminiscent of the Kelvin Sampson era in the sense that one feels that there are issues with players off the court causing problems on the court. Perea may only be the top of the iceberg. I hope I’m wrong but I wait for further disclosures.

    And for the record, I have zero inside information, just hunches.

    And I do not equate Crean with Sampson.

    I should add why. Sampson’s was sanctioned for violations. I don’t see that with Crean.

    Loss of control without bad intent would be the worst I could hypothesize as a criticism of Crean.

    But that is very different.

    On Saturday, Purdue was a better team with better coaching. Good team play often beats individual talent, not always but very often. Look at Butler during the last several years.
