    That second clip (the rebound off of the free throw) was the only play that game that made pause and rewind just to see it again. Really just impressive effort to steal the rebound, the no look pass was on point, and of course Bryant’s dunk was impressive.

    247Sports had CJ ranked 84th. ESPN had him 40th. Think we know which recruiting service got that right. Tough to find minutes with such a deep roster but CJ must play. If we go without JBJ tomorrow night, CJ will have to be as good as against KU, or better, if we’re to have a chance to win.

    Great breakdown Ryan. We all look forward to these, and I appreciate you highlighting hustle plays and positive decision making. These should be hallmarks of IU basketball!

  • CuJo is key, and we’ll be able to tell a lot about him (at this point) by whether he can step up in another huge game as a freshman. If he can, then wow. And if OG can take another step, then I think we can win. If neither happens, then it could be a long night.

    CuJo’s first step is so explosive. At some point this season I think he will move ahead of JN on the depth chart.
