The Minute After: Marshall

Thoughts on a 90-79 win against Marshall: Adversity came to Assembly Hall tonight in the form of the Marshall Thundering Herd. Indiana’s defense, so stout and so dominant in the first 20 minutes of action so far this season, was ...

The Minute After: Jackson State

Thoughts on a 70-35 win against the Tigers: It’s that time of the year. With a holiday approaching, fewer students in the stands and another inferior opponent to play, the energy inside Assembly Hall this evening was low. And at ...

The Minute After: Louisiana

Thoughts on a 76-44 win against the Ragin’ Cajuns: Another game, another win, another dominant defensive first half from the Indiana Hoosiers. Lousiana isn’t a great 2-point shooting team so far, as it made just 31 percent of its 2s ...

The Minute After: St. John’s

Thoughts on a 76-74 win against St. John’s: Trayce Jackson-Davis and Joel Soriano jawed early as Assembly Hall rocked and roared. From the jump this was a spirited, up-tempo affair between two teams believing it could impose its will on ...

The Minute After: Northern Illinois

Thoughts on an 85-49 win against the Huskies: While the Hoosiers emerged victorious on Tuesday night against Eastern Michigan, the ghost of the Archie Miller era haunted the second half. Indiana failed to put the Eagles away, as a 21-point ...

The Minute After: Eastern Michigan

Thoughts on a 68-62 win against Eastern Michigan: Three offseason talking points we know to be true. (Well, as true as anything can be after just one game, that is.) 1) Mike Woodson’s steady drumbeat of the “defense being ahead ...

The Minute After: Rutgers

Thoughts on a 61-50 loss to the Scarlet Knights: Here we were again. The Hoosiers starting strong, instilling some hope, only to let it slip away once more. It wasn’t as sudden or as drastic, the Hoosiers fans in attendance ...

The Minute After: Purdue

Thoughts on a 67-58 loss to the Boilermakers: Five straight losses to end the regular season, nine straight losses against Purdue. These are your Indiana Hoosiers, limping to the finish line in another disappointing season under Archie Miller. Perhaps the ...

The Minute After: Michigan State

Thoughts on a 64-58 loss to the Spartans: The Hoosiers fought hard in this game. They battled in a foul-heavy, ugly, offensively-challenged contest. But in the end, in a game they absolutely had to have to cling to any NCAA ...

The Minute After: Michigan

Thoughts on a 73-57 loss to the Wolverines: In its previous two losses to Michigan State and Rutgers, Indiana collapsed over the final 30 minutes of action, blowing huge leads in the process. That didn’t happen today. But even though ...

The Minute After: Rutgers

Thoughts on a 74-63 loss to Rutgers: Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, we’ve reached the low point of the season. This was a disastrous performance from the Hoosiers tonight, a re-run of how things went against Michigan State, yet ...

The Minute After: Michigan State

Thoughts on a 78-71 loss to Michigan State: This one had all the makings of an early blowout. The Spartans turned the ball over like mad. On the other end, Trayce Jackson-Davis and Race Thompson got the ball with ease ...

The Minute After: Minnesota

Thoughts on an 82-72 win against the Golden Gophers: The Hoosiers absolutely needed this game tonight. Their play matched the desperation of the moment. The energy was up. The start was better. It wasn’t all perfect, but it was enough ...
