Good, Bad and Ugly: Ole Miss

THE GOOD: FIRST FIVE MINUTES. This is what this Hoosiers team can be. Running the break efficiently, not letting teams get set up on D, pushing the pace, getting controlled buckets in transition with Jeremiah Rivers and Verdell Jones leading ...

Good, Bad and Ugly: USC Upstate

THE GOOD: CHRISTIAN WATFORD AND DEREK ELSTON. Watford continues to impress. He’s been billed as a guy that can do it all, and this game really highlighted that: he got boards, hit shots, created in the lane, got some steals, ...

Good, Bad and Ugly: Michigan State

I have put little emotional investment into this Big Ten season. As the losses piled up, it was hard to. With so many turnovers and so much frustration, there came a point where you had to cut your losses and ...

Good, Bad and Ugly: Northwestern

FINAL SCORE: Northwestern 75, Indiana 53 THE GOOD: A hot start. IU rushed out to a 15-7 lead in the first five minutes, but once Northwestern switched to a 1-3-1 zone, they only mustered 38 points the last 35 minutes ...

FINAL SCORE: Penn State: 65  Indiana: 55 THE GOOD: After a couple of woeful games, IU returned home Saturday night and played Penn State well enough to keep it interesting and fight for a win. There was no doom and ...

Good, Bad and Ugly: Ohio State

THE GOOD: THE GOOD, CONTINUED: Verdell Jones looked incredibly competent in the point guard role tonight (I feel like this was the first time all year we didn’t get a lot of Daniel Moore dribbling all over the place, which ...

Good, Bad and Ugly: Illinois

THE GOOD (HEY, WE HAD TO LIST SOMETHING, RIGHT?): Nick Williams. That pretty much sums it up. On a day when the Hoosiers came out with far less fight than needed to win in a hostile environment, Williams was the ...

Good, Bad and Ugly: Michigan

THE GOOD: We played very good for very long against a borderline Top 25 team, who has beaten the likes Duke and UCLA. The first half was so promising, so full of life, it was a feeling we haven’t felt ...
