Film Session: Central Arkansas

In Indiana’s win against Central Arkansas on Wednesday night, Devonte Green put on a show. The junior received his most playing time of the season (28 minutes) due to Robert Phinisee’s head injury and he made the most of it, posting a stat-stuffing line of 19 points, nine rebounds, six assists, four steals, a block and just two turnovers.

Green was sharp from distance (6-of-10) and his crafty defense often led to transition scoring opportunities for the Hoosiers as well.

We’ll take a look at a host of Green film — a 3-ball, two steals and a turnover — in the latest edition of Film Session:

With time winding down in the first half, Green snags one of his nine boards of the contest:

He quickly brings it up court, but opts to retreat to set up a final play for the Hoosiers:

Green dribbles way out near half court:

De’Ron Davis gives him a ball screen and he takes it left:

The Bears switch Hayden Koval onto Green:

While Koval is known as a strong shot blocker, this gives Green a mismatch and he goes to work. Green goes right and hits Koval with the stepback:

He gets separation:

Green rises up and hits the shot as the buzzer sounds on the half:

These are the type of tantalizing plays Green can provide and that make him valuable. He’s a playmaker when he’s not coughing up the ball. Outside of Romeo Langford, there’s not really anyone else on the team with this sort of stepback ability in their arsenal.
