The Minute After: Maryland

Thoughts on a 77-76 loss to the Terrapins: What an absolute gut punch. Oof. The Terrapins started the contest with a shooting barrage, scoring as high as 1.90 points per possession at one point in the first half. It helped ...

The Minute After: Michigan State

Thoughts on a 67-63 win against the Spartans: Unlike other Indiana foes this season, Tom Izzo and the Michigan Spartans decided not to be so egregious with their defense on Indiana’s bigs. There were no constant, strong double and triple ...

The Minute After: Nebraska

Thoughts on an 82-74 win against the Cornhuskers: Oh, what a difference made baskets make. Wednesday evening’s loss at Rutgers saw the Hoosiers shoot just 4-of-36 on shots that weren’t layups. Against Nebraska in Lincoln tonight, De’Ron Davis and Joey ...

The Minute After: Rutgers

Thoughts on a 59-50 loss to the Scarlet Knights: Now three road games into the Big Ten season, the Hoosiers have been downright abysmal away from Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. Wisconsin dusted them up bad. The Hoosiers trailed by as ...

The Minute After: Ohio State

Thoughts on a 66-54 win against the Buckeyes: For a game, hope is restored. Indiana looked like a completely different group in this one. After all the questions marks hanging over this team in recent weeks — was the record ...

The Minute After: Northwestern

Thoughts on a 66-62 win against the Wildcats: Tonight’s performance from Indiana didn’t instill much confidence things are going to turn around. While the Hoosiers knocked down their first two 3-pointers of the night, they’d only go 1-of-12 the rest ...

The Minute After: Maryland

Thoughts on a 75-59 loss to the Terrapins:  The last few weeks haven’t been a disaster for the Hoosiers. But the cracks in the foundation have started to show. Devoid of the astronomical free throw rate Indiana racked up inside ...

The Minute After: Arkansas

Thoughts on a 71-64 loss against Arkansas: An eventful evening inside Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall was full of moments that hurt Indiana’s chances of completing a perfect 11-0 nonconference record. First was the pregame announcement that redshirt freshman Jerome Hunter ...

The Minute After: Notre Dame

Thoughts on a 62-60 win against Notre Dame: Notre Dame clanged 3-pointer after 3-pointer and threw a soft zone at Indiana, one where the Hoosiers found ample opportunities in the middle. The Fighting Irish were out of sorts and playing ...

The Minute After: Nebraska

Thoughts on a 96-90 win against the Cornhuskers: Other teams have sagged off the Hoosiers on the perimeter, goading Indiana into becoming a jump-shooting, stagnant 3-point taking team. It’s been an effective counter to IU’s offense predicated on getting the ...

The Minute After: Connecticut

Thoughts on a 57-54 win against the Huskies: Well, this much is for sure: No one’s walking out of Madison Square Garden down 9th Ave. and dropping this game off at the Whitney Museum. This was not art, two teams ...

The Minute After: Wisconsin

Thoughts on an 84-64 loss to the Badgers: After a rough shooting stretch for Wisconsin heading into this one, we were prepared for the Badgers to regress to the mean and start hitting 3-point shots at a higher clip. And ...

The Minute After: Florida State

Thoughts on an 80-64 win against the Seminoles: After a sleepy November inside Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, tonight’s atmosphere matched the moment. The students back in town and a ranked opponent in the building, the crowd rocked and roared as ...
