    UNC is a totally different animal than what UK was, huge, athletic front line that can score but i think IU has the adv in the backcourt with YF. And of course no will give IU a chance in heck just like saturday. as we fly under the radar once again remember in this tournament every team is beatable. GO HOOSIERS!!

  • IU Cal 1809

    ACC BIG TEN Challenge part two!

  • I’d love to have a rematch vs Wisconsin, but gotta root for all IN teams in the tourney

  • BL

    UNC is very athletic but no bigger than the top tier BIG teams. They go 6’9, 6’9, 6’8, 6’1, 6’0. Where we should have a big advantage is outside shooting. In conference play, IU shot 39.7% from three. NC, 28.3%.

  • BL

    When we lost to Wiscy on the road, I commented that it wasn’t a bad loss because they we’re better than their record. They had some young players coming along nicely just like our team. I picked them to knock off Xavier. Rematch against Wiscy or ND will be a war. Hoping we get our shot.

  • IU Cal 1809

    If we can find away to get past UNC I would much rather play Wisconsin then Notre Dame! ND scares me more with there shooters and would have a chip on there shoulder after we beat them in the crossroad.

  • BL

    I was also thinking about ND having the added revenge motivator. That said, Wiscy knows us better.

  • BT

    Bryant and Williams may have been more spectacular, but Hartman’s inside defense and timely offensive rebounds were a major difference maker for IU vs. UK. He’ll likely be a little undersized again at the 4 vs. UNC. But at this point it hardly feels like a mismatch. He’s up to it.

  • IU Cal 1809

    Ya they may know us better. But I truly believe we win that game if the refs don’t allow one player single handily out shoot the inter IU team from the strip!

  • BL

    Especially if CH gets that wrist healthy and can contribute from three. Also, Johnson has experience on his side but OG is just as athletic and can pull him away from the basket as well.

  • pcantidote

    Pack the home jerseys boys!

  • pcantidote

    Yes, if say Hayes only got 15 FT attempts instead of twenty freaking two, that might just help.

  • pcantidote

    Yeah, I keep hearing about how long UNC is, but I don’t know, TB, Max, OG, JM, CH, and TW aren’t exactly tiny.

  • INUnivHoosier

    Sir Charles did pick IU, for whatever that’s worth.

  • I mentioned elsewhere that I think we’re a much different team than we were since playing ND, and even since playing WIscy. I’m worried about UNC, but I think if we make it to the Elite Eight, we make it to the Final Four.

  • Sherronhasaheadache

    I was thinking it would be like playing Maryland, almost. with the size comparison

  • HuntinHoosier86

    Speaking of Sir Charles, did you see what he was saying post game about Skal? Paraphrasing, he said anybody that said Skal Labissiere was the BEST high school basketball player last year was a D*MN IDIOT! Hahaha. He really got into it with Kenny Smith about UK.

  • Sarasota Hoosier

    All I hope is that the refs finally let TB play in the first half. His second foul was 100% phantom and it seems to happen every game. That and the switch on the ball screen when no movement is impeded, they call it on him every time. TB is a young Moses Malone and needs to be allowed to play. His defense suffers because he has to back off or they will call the foul. Johnson from NC is the best rebounder that IU has faced this year and it sure would be nice to see TB compete without 1 arm tied behind his back.

  • Kiddo2050

    What a ridiculous start time. Why not have West coast games on later and East coast earlier.

  • Ole Man

    Meeks is a space carver! For a big man he moves surprising well.
    Their entire front line is athletic. Not a lug in the bunch.

  • Ole Man

    I want IU in the elite eight, but I want no part of Wisc the way they are playing now!

  • E Foy McNaughton

    He earned both of those fouls in the Kentucky game …. you can’t expect to hit a guy’s shooting hand and not get the foul.

  • BL

    Yes and their entire rotation is experienced (primarily upperclassmen other than the freshman Williams ). They’re a legit AP top three and favored by six for a reason. Unless they have a horrendous shooting night, will take our absolute best to beat them.

  • TomJameson

    That one “foul” when TB fell down … well, there was absolutely no contact whatsoever. They replayed that several times from different angles, not to mention the 6 or 8 times I replayed their slow-mo replay in my own slow-mo. hahahahaha

  • TomJameson

    Hartman just seems to be where he needs to be all the time. That is called a high basketball IQ. Really glad he’ll be back next year.

  • TomJameson

    If we can find a way to get to the next level, I don’t care who we play (we meaning the IU basketball team .. lol). ND and their shooters don’t scare me any more than Wisconsin and their coach.

  • We beat UNC, then we face a team (either ND or Wisc) that we’ve already beaten, to go to the Final Four.

  • Imagine a bunch of Hanners.

  • I think they’re a little tougher and a bit faster.

  • no way. watch it again, zero contact on the second foul. none.

  • I actually wanted them to lose. I appreciate their work last year in the tournament, but that was a different team. This year’s wisconsin team is a reversion back to the usual. It’s horrendous basketball. Their “style” is simply to make opponents worse then themselves. It’s dreadful to watch. For making the game so dreary, they deserve to lose. And I say this as one who always cheers for conference teams.

  • BL

    Reminds me very much of Knight teams, especially when we didn’t have the best athletes. Very controlled half-court basketball. Can win but booooring.


    Well, the games Friday are in Philly and Chicago, so none on the west coast.

    I’m probably one of few IU fans who are happy about the tip time. I have to close a restaurant Friday night and I’m just excited that it’s starting late enough that I’ll get to see the second half.
