Thoughts on a 63-48 loss to the Scarlet Knights: Another ranked team bites the dust at the former RAC. The problem for the Hoosiers today, though, wasn’t so much that they lost. It’s how it happened. Rutgers absolutely took them ...

Thoughts on a 77-65 win against North Carolina: Despite North Carolina’s recent troubles, the Tar Heels still entered Assembly Hall this evening with the 11th-best offense in the Pomeroy ratings. But Indiana’s defense absolutely, positively stymied the Tar Heels for ...

Thoughts on a 90-51 win against the Tigers: Indiana had plenty of excuses for a flat performance today. Four games in eight days. Two games in three days with Thanksgiving sandwiched in between. A 12:30 p.m. tip on a Friday ...

The Minute After: Little Rock

Thoughts on an 87-68 win against the Trojans: So far this season, Indiana has easily swept aside the weaker teams on its schedule, having fun along the way. But that wasn’t the case tonight. Little Rock stuck around into the ...

Thoughts on an 86-56 win against the Redhawks: After Friday night’s win against Xavier, the predictable hangover came immediately in this one. Without the size, strength or talent to match up with Indiana, Travis Steele and the Redhawks packed the ...

The Minute After: Xavier

Thoughts on an 81-79 win against the Musketeers: Whew. Indiana survives tonight in a hostile road environment, showing just enough grit and moxie to pull out a hard-fought win against a good team. There is plenty to clean up and ...

The Minute After: Bethune-Cookman

  • Ryan Corazza 11/10/2022 11:31 pm  
 

Thoughts on a 101-49 win against the Wildcats: While Indiana dominated on Tuesday night against Morehead State, the performance left some lingering questions. Is the free-throw shooting going to be an issue again? Is Indiana going to continue to be ...

The Minute After: Morehead State

  • Ryan Corazza 11/07/2022 9:44 pm  
 

Thoughts on an 88-53 win against the Eagles: After two blowout wins for the Hoosiers in their exhibition slate, they kept things rolling tonight in their season opener. Morehead State tied it up at 21-all with 9:17 to play in ...

The Minute After: Saint Francis

  • Ryan Corazza 11/03/2022 9:38 pm  
 

Thoughts on a 104-59 win against the Cougars: A sloppy, sluggish start from the Hoosiers eventually gave way to a 45-point blowout win, another easy victory for Indiana to conclude its two-game exhibition season. What we saw from Indiana’s star ...

The Minute After: Marian

Thoughts on a 78-42 win against the Knights:  The prognosticators liked Indiana to win the league this year based upon how the team looked on paper. With so much of the scoring core back, plenty of experience from key players ...

The Minute After: Saint Mary’s

  • Ryan Corazza 03/17/2022 10:49 pm  
 

Thoughts on an 82-53 loss to the Gaels: This was an absolute drubbing. A clinic. A cut-up. A mauling. A whooping. A clock-cleaning. An epic fail. It was also Indiana’s worst NCAA tournament loss in its history. And so the ...

The Minute After: Wyoming

Thoughts on a 66-58 win against the Cowboys: After a Big Ten tournament featuring high-level play from Indiana across its last two and half games, this one was far more ugly. It was not Indiana’s “A” game. The Hoosiers didn’t ...

The Minute After: Iowa

  • Ryan Corazza 03/12/2022 4:16 pm  
 

Thoughts on an 80-77 loss to the Hawkeyes: Indiana held Iowa’s high-powered offense in check for the first half, allowing just .90 points per possession. It was another strong defensive performance for this team in the Big Ten tournament. As ...
