Film Session: Minnesota

  • 02/11/2018 8:17 am in

In its blowout win against Minnesota on Friday night, Indiana’s passing led the charge on offense. The Hoosiers continued to find the open man again and again, assisting on 21 of their 30 made baskets.

In the second half, the Hoosiers went to ball screen and pick-and-roll action several times on the right wing and continued to exploit the Golden Gophers.

We’ll take a look at four such plays in the latest edition of Film Session:

On the first play of the second half, Zach McRoberts passes the ball to Robert Johnson on the right wing:

Freddie McSwain sets a ball screen for Johnson and he goes left:

McSwain has space on the roll and Johnson throws the pocket pass. Jordan Murphy comes over on the help defense as Juwan Morgan lingers in the short corner behind him:

Morgan and Michael Hurt swarm the ball, leaving Morgan open on the left block:

McSwain makes the pass as Morgan seals Jamir Harris behind him:

He dunks it home for two:

Nice secondary action from the Hoosiers here. McSwain stayed patient and didn’t force anything, instead finding the open Morgan for the score.

    I love Archie’swork with this group. With all the scoring IU lost last year we all knew defense had to create our offense. Great job Archie

  • Off the subject but fox1 should reprimand Donny Marshall for comments on candy striped pants and especially the girls soccer team. He is not very professional, not very good at his job, and evidently is an idiot. Add to that that anyone coming from Jim calhoun’s program shouldn’t say a word about any other program

    Fun stuff, Ryan. Thank you and HAW!

    It was great to see players dunking the ball. Maybe Davis could take notes.

    And did you notice how much he praised Minny during the first few minutes of the game? That dude is an arrogant, self absorbed punk…..and as you say….an idiot. He had no nor has any business calling college games with his destructive attitude.

    That last pick and roll sequence with Juwan and Devonte is what I want to see all season long next year!

    Not really off the subject as the game as a whole is supposed to be an exceptional product!
