OTTAWA, Ontario — Indiana’s five-game Canadian tour continued on Monday evening with a 95-85 win over Carleton University at the Ravens Nest.

Inside the Hall was there for all of the action and have edited together close to two minutes of highlights, which are available below. Please note that Big Ten rules prevent us from showing more than two minutes per game on the trip.

    The one word that hit me as I watched this video was “spacing”. I think that will be the best aspect of this team. The shooters really space things out.
    I am SUPER impressed by Nick Zeisloft. He could easily shoot/play his way into the starting lineup. I also loved DD’s moves in the post

  • kyle jenkins

    Amazing what 1 year of recruiting does. We look like a totally different team. Can’t wait to see how they fair against the BIG. Hopefully we can get Hanner some help with April or possibly Kassongo

  • E Foy McNaughton

    Nick’s release is lightning quick. What a difference a year makes.

  • Hoosier Hall

    Jeez! Blackmon, Yogi, Stan, Nick, Rob… These guys are quick and can shoot from anywhere! Yogi and Blackmon seem to be meshing right now on their penetrations and backdoor cuts. I’ll tell you this much, I’d be mad if I was on the opposing team and you told me I had to guard Yogi or JBJ! That must suck because they are quick, crafty and can score in a million different ways.

  • shknqk

    Oh, so is that what a dribble drive offense is supposed to look like? I’d forgotten.

    Drives – check
    Back cuts on baseline – check
    Kick outs – check
    Perimeter reverse – check

    Almost nothing from the post – check

  • Brad

    Regardless of what happens in the last two games in Canada, I think this team is going to surprise people this year. Winning in college basketball these days comes down to guard play, and it’s hard to see that there will be too many teams with a better backcourt than ours. If Hanner takes a decent step forward and we can add Kasongo, they will make some noise.

  • Ivar Isacsson

    Some one learned how to shoot…..uh oh….

  • MK

    who exactly do you want us to throw the ball to in the post?

  • Ryan Robinson

    Kasongo was the #222 prospect so I’m not sold on him coming in and being an immediate factor. I hope he proves me wrong should he decide IU.

  • inadvertentelbows_stillhurt

    “With the team that we have, you can feel that we are more together and we are tougher. We all have a great mindset.”…This DD quote sums up my thoughts right now.

  • SCHoosier

    Agree with all the comments on improved shooting and spacing. If IU can get a reasonable post presence (for rim protection and second chance shots if nothing else)…those shooters will be even more effective. I loved Yogi’s work last night. He only took one three (dished to the others) but still went 8/9 on pull up jumpers and drives. Really efficient game for Ferrell and exactly what we need from him IMO.

  • Brklynhoosier

    Amazing what 6 minutes of highlights can do to my confidence in this team. Two thoughts:

    a) We will not have the huge difficulties executing the offense that we had last year, when defenders could sag on Noah, help on Yogi, and totally shut us down.

    b) If our defense can come anywhere close to our offense (and I anticipate we’ll have trouble defending teams with talented bigs down low (see: Wisconsin, Ohio State)), this is a top 25 team.

  • Rie

    Great passing, ball movement, shooting, spacing, pace, and decision making! The lack of size is a little troubling, but this team is an excellent foundation for the future of this program. We are now built to coincide with Crean’s system and we can start to see the benefits of same again. Last year is starting to become a distant memory. Cannot wait for this season to start and for this team to prove the critics wrong.

  • WhatsUpKnight

    i think that’s the point. 😉

  • David Macer

    Love all the positive comments !! But lets not get ahead of ourselves. There is nearly 4 months until the B1G. Let the guys grow and get better together as a team. Really can’t wait to see what Hanner and Jeremiah will bring. Another added dimension to these guys !!!

  • chiswede

    I don’t care who it’s against, it’s just nice to watch all those outside shots falling again.

  • shknqk

    I want our post at to be dumps for dunks and offensive putbacks.

  • MillaRed

    Was it my imagination, or did multiple players set up Yogi Ferrell to score? I can’t believe my eyes.

    And Nick, I too owe you an apology. You look a lot better than I anticipated.

    This is fun to watch. I love seeing shooters again. But we still have to think B1G. It just doesn’t work that way. Really wish we could see what we have in Hanner right now.

  • CreamandCrimson

    It was not your imagination…it happened! I would add that I saw one of the better entry passes I’ve seen from an IU team in the past 15 months or so (Troy Williams lobbing in a perfect pass for a Devin Davis layup).

    “This is fun to watch” is a good way of putting it. We know there’s still a ton of question marks but the offensive spacing, passing and shooting has been better than I dared to expect at this point in the “offseason”.

  • marcusgresham

    +Ball movement is beautiful.

    +Ball movement is a lot more available when you have that many guys who can shoot.

    +I was as impressed with the mid-range jumpers as just about anything.

    +”L’entraîneur, mes chevilles blessé.” Yogi caused this phrase to be spoken with regularity.

    +I’m getting flashbacks when I see Johnson in that #4 jersey.

    +Is it national law that every school in Canada wears red & white?

    +Was Priller injured or was it a coach’s decision that he didn’t play?

  • Hardwood83

    There is a lot to like there, good ball movement & without the ball, made shots, cutting & passing- I even saw a solid post feed! Blackmon is smoove.

  • FinEndNow

    I think coachs decision. They treated this as real as possible.

  • FinEndNow

    The only people that should be allowed to shoot 3’s this year are Hanner and April. And both of them can hit from 16 feet. I hope they keep pulling the trigger like they have been in these games!

  • ForeverIU

    Great clips! Don’t get me wrong, Yogi played a fantastic game, judging from the box score, but didn’t he also take some difficult shots when he could have easily passed to the open man, including that NBA 3? I know, maybe he’s even better at those seemingly off-balance shots.

    I would also like to see some clips of a half-court passing game. Any available? I don’t think any of the clips showed us more than a single pass, if any, before the shot.

  • ForeverIU

    I think the law says you can only wear colors that appear in the national flag, lol.

  • MPmike B

    Shooters, Shooters, Shooters, galore! A refreshing contrast from last year. It’s going to be fun to watch IU again.

  • FinEndNow

    Which makes Purdue and Michigan communist right?

  • CreamandCrimson

    I can’t speak for all of Yogi’s shots but I know the deep 3 you are referring to was at the end of the shot clock (at least according to Mike Miller’s in-game Twitter updates).

    As for the “half-court passing game clips”, Big Ten rules restrict the total footage time to 2 minutes. I can’t speak for everyone but I’d rather see a series 4-5 one pass/shot sequences than 15-20 seconds of one offensive possession.

  • ForeverIU

    Makes perfect sense! Actually I was listening on Internet radio, and I remember mention of that last-second shot; this must have been it. Okay, yes, I’d rather see several snippets than only a small number of long ones. I’m just getting impatient, I guess; I want to see how we play the half-court patient passing game with the longer shot clock, because you know we will need to.

  • ForeverIU

    Where is Snookafly? He said he will be at the games and promised some goodies, didn’t he?

  • CreamandCrimson

    I feel you there…I always try to never wish time away and I’m glad our guys have a few more months to develop but I’m with you, I’m really looking forward to see how we look when the bright lights come on in November.

  • oldiugymnast

    That was fun. One question – if the NCAA only allows 2 minutes of tape on a foreign game like this in the summer, why was the Kentucky game in Puerto Rico broadcast on ESPN in its entirety?

  • CreamandCrimson

    I don’t know the answer to that but it’s my understanding that the 2 minute video restriction is a B1G rule, not an NCAA rule.

  • twarrior87

    Puerto Rico is technically part of the US, while Canada is it’s own country… that may have part to do with it.

  • twarrior87

    can’t imagine what this team would be like if NV had stayed one more year. if you sag on him underneath we pop a 3, if you play the perimeter NV burns you underneath. We’d be legitimate national contenders. Alas, he is gone and I’m just happy this team will be fun to watch again!

  • shknqk

    My take away from this comment is simply… Damn!

    How can these guys look this good after just 10 practices and without 14′ of talent in the middle?

    Please. Chew. On. That.

    And I sum up the amazing leap forward in the post entry to Devin where he sealed, dropped and got the bucket. With the best post Player in the country (arguably) last year I don’t ever remember an entry and finish that smooth all year.

  • shknqk

    Ooooops… Just duplicated this point!


  • yimyames

    Since when do rules apply to Kentucky?

  • David James Downey

    It sounds like a Big 10 rule. I am surprised and frankly a little disappointed that IU’s Canadian tour was not televised. I would think the Big 10 network would welcome such a fun set of games.

  • Alford Bailey

    Yes he did. I’m waiting patiently.

  • Alford Bailey

    Follow the money. ESPN and the NCAA are in bed together and no greater revenue generator in cbb than Big Blue right now.

  • Alford Bailey

    I’ve been very critical of Crean in the past and I still think he could screw it up with a 12-13 man rotation but I feel very comfortable with this team even without a solid big. Wont be a better back court in the country. JBJ and RJ need to play lots of minutes. Apparently NZ will demand a lot of minutes too. Troy is becoming what we all expected. If we become fundamentally sound on D the offense is there for this team to be very good. Top 3 in the B1G good.

  • Alford Bailey

    I really do not expect Hanner or Jeremiah bring a whole lot and thats fine. The offense is gonna be based on the perimeter and we got a bunch of shooters who can also drive. No worries there. Can we guard effectively is the question for me. Great guard play gives you a chance to win a lot of games. It appears we have that.

  • ForeverIU

    Maybe he’s having too much fun, lol. Doesn’t have time for us.

  • NateMH

    Yogi may be the best pg in the nation this year.

  • IUfanforever


  • IUfanforever

    Milla Red I think your finally seeing what good shooters can do for a team!!! Something we did not have at all last year! Even with a small center at times…I still believe this team will be so much better and will win 20 plus games!

  • shknqk

    Where did the all caps come from? I can’t think of a less provocative post. I comment on how beautiful the CTC dribble drive is executed and you spew this.

    Please enlighten me, oh wise one, on how the CTC dribble drive is supposed to work and how this years execution compares to last years.

  • IUfanforever

    Post play doesn’t have to be that strong but we will be fine this year with the shooters we have. Seems everyone wants to bash our post play…we are going to be so much better this year and fun to watch!

  • shknqk

    So thanks for agreeing with me but does that mean you have no knowledge?

    One of the most painful things we dealt with with Cody and Noah was post entries that were poorly executed, stopped ball movement while the wing tried to figure out “throw or not” and in Noah’s case no ability to pass well out of the guarantees double coming.

    I think Kentucky is a good example on how the dumps for dunks is the best way to get the post involved in the dribble drive.
