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 ...

The Minute After: South Dakota State

Thoughts on a 64-50 win against the Jackrabbits:  Call it a Thanksgiving hangover, perhaps, but today’s game against South Dakota State was Indiana’s worst effort of the season. The Jackrabbits packed it in against the Hoosiers on defense, taking away ...

The Minute After: Louisiana Tech

Thoughts on an 88-75 win against the Bulldogs: On paper, Louisiana Tech came to Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall this evening as Indiana’s toughest test of the season to date. The Bulldogs ranked in the top 100 of Ken Pomeroy’s rankings ...

The Minute After: Princeton

Thoughts on a 79-54 win against the Tigers: Entering tonight’s game, Indiana’s offense has imposed its will on the opponent. The Hoosiers want to get the ball up the court quick for easy points. Involve the bigs. Draw fouls. They’ve ...

The Minute After: Troy

Thoughts on a 100-62 win against the Trojans: In an otherwise gone-as-expected start to the season, Indiana’s slow starts, partly due to a lax defense, have been the biggest cause for concern for the coaching staff and fans alike. But ...

The Minute After: North Alabama

Thoughts on a 91-65 win against the Lions: As the second half began, Archie Miller removed his jacket and tie. It seemed to be the physical embodiment of his first half displeasure, as the Hoosiers failed to bring proper intensity, ...

The Minute After: Portland State

Thoughts on an 85-74 win against the Vikings: November’s schedule isn’t supposed to challenge the Hoosiers much. Western Illinois came to town earlier this week and Indiana dismissed of the Leathernecks with relative ease, its lead continuing to grow as ...

The Minute After: Western Illinois

Thoughts on a 98-65 win against the Leathernecks: In their season debut, the Hoosiers were supposed to take care of business. They did just that and then some against a Western Illinois squad that just couldn’t match up. Indiana’s offense ...

The Minute After: Gannon University

Thoughts on a 84-54 win against the Golden Knights:  With Al Durham and Devonte Green sidelined due to injury, and Rob Phinisee seeing limited time as he works back from his lower abdominal injury, Indiana’s backcourt was thin this evening. ...

The Minute After: Wichita State

Thoughts on a 73-63 loss to Wichita State: After a brutal start for both teams, neither shooting well or playing with much polish, the Shockers started to get it together. This is a team that entered Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall ...

The Minute After: Arkansas

Thoughts on a 63-60 win against Arkansas: Justin Smith drew an offensive foul. Devonte Green turned the ball over. Indiana’s offense couldn’t get much of anything going against Arkansas’ pressure. We’ve been here before and it isn’t pretty. But in ...

The Minute After: St. Francis

Thoughts on a 89-72 win against the Red Flash: There was no question heading into this one which team had more talent, more size and was just flat out better: your Indiana Hoosiers. But after falling short of making the ...
