Going nowhere fast

Now that I’ve had a couple of hours to digest the debacle earlier this afternoon at Penn State, I’ve collected my thoughts on the game, the direction of this team and the program. E will weigh-in with more in The ...

Hoosiers fall to Penn State in Happy Valley

A game that Indiana hoped would be a tuneup for the Big Ten Tournament turned into a nightmare Sunday afternoon at the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pennsylvania. The Hoosiers (25-6, 14-4 Big Ten) shot a dismal 21 percent ...

White and Gordon lead Hoosiers past Gophers, 69-55

Wednesday’s game against Minnesota at Assembly Hall probably wasn’t the grand finale that D.J. White expected when he set foot on Bloomington’s campus in the summer of 2004. The coach who recruited him, Mike Davis, was nowhere to be found. ...

The Morning After: Wisconsin

By far the saddest part about everything that happened yesterday is that a fine performance by the Hoosiers — a well-executed gameplan against a good team — went totally by the wayside. It was overshadowed. Overshadowed not only because Brian ...

Hoosiers lose nailbiter at home against Badgers

I’m having a hard time not starting off this recap with an expletive, but alas, I will refrain. Anyone who watched this one can tell you the drill: it was a highly contested, great game. Unfortunately, IU came out on ...

The Morning After: UConn

There have been plenty of moments of frustration thus far this season. E.J.’s turnovers, seemingly the one thing keeping him from being a truly dominant college basketball player. The lack of a true point guard, leading to skittish play from ...

The Morning After: Penn State

This probably shouldn’t be called The Morning After, since it’s coming in the afternoon; my apologies. A weekend visit from the brother and Dr. Martin Luther King Day pushed this back on the list of priorities, but here it is. ...

Battle tested Hoosiers prevail, 81-65

A game that looked to be a mismatch on paper turned out to be quite a battle for No. 9 Indiana Sunday afternoon in Assembly Hall. Penn State, minus All-Conference player Geary Claxton, led 52-51 with 11:53 remaining before the ...

The Morning After: Minnesota

In the days leading up to the Minnesota game, it seemed fashionable to proclaim Minnesota IU’s first road loss. It was an understandable diagnosis; The Barn is an historically difficult place to play, Minnesota has been playing well, and the ...

Phew!: IU escapes at home against the Illini

Well, this one certainly didn’t go as planned. The Illini did what they do best — that is, they defended the hell out of IU — and nearly handed the Hoosiers their first loss at home under Kelvin Sampson. Fortunately, ...

The Morning After: Iowa

Given the difficulty inherent in any Big Ten road game, we should probably just be thankful that IU won last night. After all, the Hoosiers have a history — at least in the past few years — of struggling in ...

Hoosiers hold off Johnson and the Hawkeyes, 79-76

Eric Gordon scored 25 points and No. 11 Indiana (12-1, 1-0 Big Ten) held off Iowa 79-76 Wednesday night at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa. The Hoosiers led 71-60 with 1:26 remaining, but Iowa didn’t fold. Justin Johnson scored ...

Hoosiers overcome slow start in rout of Coppin State

It was a tale of two halves for No. 14 Indiana Saturday afternoon in Assembly Hall. The Hoosiers (10-1) shot just 28 percent in the first half and led 28-26, but started the second half on a 20-4 run and ...
