Film Session: Vonleh in the weave, second half D

  • 02/27/2014 9:15 am in

As Alex noted in Five Takeaways and as I alluded to on Twitter during the Northwestern game, Noah Vonleh’s face-up game is looking better than his back-to-the-basket game of late. Against Wisconsin, Vonleh actually found himself in Indiana’s perimeter weave on occasion, leading to two scores for No. 1.

A look at these scores, as well as some defensive issues against the Badgers during the second half in the latest edition of Film Session:

Late in the first half, Yogi Ferrell has the ball up top with 20 seconds remaining on the shot clock. Vonleh is on the left wing:


Ferrell hands off to Will Sheehey and Sheehey heads to the left wing to hand off to Vonleh:


Sam Dekker and Frank Kaminsky get a little caught up, as Dekker doesn’t immediately shade over to the left wing with Sheehey:


The two are still trying to figure things out as Vonleh makes a move:


Kaminsky recovers back to Vonleh:


But he spins left, gets some separation and hits:

    Excellent work once again, I can’t say enough how much I enjoy this feature.

  • notfargj

    thanks, ryan!

  • inLinE6

    Yeah I agree, thanks a lot for the feature! But it was painful to watch Gordon and Williams in defense.

  • Indiana_Banners

    Williams in particular was TERRIBLE. He’s way to quick to let small guards blow by him like that…

  • Alford Bailey

    No excuse for a guy this far into the season to still be getting beat that bad on defense.

  • Nick Claghorn

    Why was Gordon shifting into a double-team from 21 feet out? Anticipating a screen?

  • Ole Man

    I still don’t understand why Gordon gets so many minutes.

  • InTheMtns

    It looked to me like he thought there was going to be a screen and that he and Will would switch. Anticipating is a good skill for a guard, but Evan should have known that Brust can’t be left open at all for even a second.

  • InTheMtns

    If Troy would just get down in a defensive stance and get his arms out, a guard like Koening would never get by him. Troy has a lot of attributes that will allow him to become a great defender and I think he will be in time. But right now, his lack of defense and his lack of effort on defense have kept him on the bench a lot this season.

    The only reason I can ever think up is my crazy theory that Crean is using his minutes to recruit Eron. It certainly can’t be because he expects him to produce, so outside of insanity that’s all I’ve got.

    It just makes me laugh that many people think that YF is an elite point guard when he BOTH has his back to the ball (for long stretches) and is pretending to direct traffic. Good work highlighting this in the still pictures. Yeah, Gordon blew the play (only YF could be surprised by that at this point in the season) by double teaming but there was no way YF could help (wasn’t looking). I just don’t get it at this age. Even in intramural games you see better bball.

  • fourputtsforsnowman

    …and painful to watch YF with his back turned to the ball pretending to direct traffic. He couldn’t have helped gordon…wasn’t even watching.

  • Alford Bailey

    I don’t think its a big deal if we don’t get Eron. I think he is a little over hyped right now.
