Film Session: UIndy

The Hoosiers coasted to another exhibition victory on Sunday afternoon, easily taking out the University of Indianapolis 74-53.

We’ll take a look at Collin Hartman’s return, the offensive rebounding prowess of Freddie McSwain and the increased mobility of a slimmed-down De’Ron Davis in the latest edition of Film Session:

Al Durham has the ball at the top of the key and begins to the pass the ball to Hartman on the right wing. Meanwhile down in the paint, Josh Newkirk sets a screen for Davis to free him on the right block:

The pass comes to Hartman and Davis has space:

Hartman dribbles in and makes the pass:

Hartman’s man sinks down to Davis for a quick double team and Davis makes the heady decision to immediately kick it back out to Hartman:

He shoots and scores with plenty of space:

Nothing fancy or complex here. Just reading the defense and making the smart play with no hesitation. Across both exhibitions, Indiana’s bigs were solid at finding open teammates on the perimeter when the defense collapsed.

    Thanks for the film session. Not only are they informative, but they give me a little “fix” in between games. Got to like the off the ball screens.

  • Drew

    Excellent content. Hartman’s stroke is a thing of beauty.

    Guess this is the most of the game that I’ll see since I tried to record it on BTN last night and woke up to watch it before work only to find it was a Minny game.

    My worst nightmare, right there.

    I like the pick-n-roll play with De’Ron … a lot. hope to see more of the that for the whole team, as well as a few alley-oop passes. 🙂

    Was DEFINITELY not pleased.

    My favorite part of the DD pick and roll is Archie’s reaction after the easy lay-in. He throws his hands in the air as if to say, “See how easy this is.”

    It’s been harped on this off-season put that play really showed the fundamental basketball play that Archie is instilling. My bet is we’ll see a lot more of those high pick and rolls, can’t stop DD when he is going downhill like that.

    The basteges.

  • “Nothing fancy or complex here. Just reading the defense and making the smart play with no hesitation.” Kind of sounds like a definition of a well-running motion offense.

  • Thanks for spotting that Archie bit and pointing it out. You’re spot on with that observation, I think.

  • Great catch, I didn’t see that before you pointed it out. Coaches reaction that is.

    Wow! Last year, IF DD had even managed to slide back over, it would likely been a foul, not a block.
    We gonna win a few games this year!!
