The Morning After: That’s that

  • Eamonn Brennan 03/24/2008 12:40 pm  

College basketball seasons are long and dynamic things. They’re not like college football seasons, which require drilled excellence from the outset and where a midseason loss can kill your chances at winning a truly screwed-up national championship. They’re not like ...

The nightmare is over: Hoosiers bow out in 1st round

  • Alex Bozich 03/22/2008 12:29 am  

A season that started with promise and aspirations of a run to San Antonio ended Friday night as Indiana fell to Arkansas 86-72 in the first round of the East Regional in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Hoosiers (25-8) started the ...

Keys to the game: Arkansas

  • Alex Bozich 03/20/2008 6:42 pm  

Strong out of the gate: In each of IU’s last three losses, they’ve trailed at halftime and in two of the games (Michigan State and Minnesota), they’ve trailed big early. Playing from behind is not advisable for anybody in the ...

The Morning After: Penn State

  • Eamonn Brennan 03/10/2008 10:00 am  

Bad decisions. If you can boil down IU’s entire struggle with injured little meek please-govnah-don’t-hurt-us Penn State yesterday, that was it. Bad decisions. Bad decisions from the three-point line. Bad decisions in the post. Bad decisions on defense. Whatever bad ...

White, Gordon help IU pull away against Northwestern

  • Ryan Corazza 02/03/2008 2:35 pm  

It took a while for the Hoosiers to pull away in this one — thanks to Northwestern’s back cuts and three-point shooting — but with around eight minutes to go, Eric Gordon hit a few shots, D.J. White chipped in ...

The Four Spot: Who ya got?

  • Alex Bozich 01/30/2008 8:12 am  

(Yes, we are aware of the Eric Gordon wrist injury rumors floating around various message boards. We’ll keep you updated if anything official comes to the surface. Now, onward…) Ahh, the four spot. No doubt about it, the lack of ...

The Morning After: UConn

  • Eamonn Brennan 01/27/2008 2:38 pm  

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 ...

Sloppy Hoosiers grit out win in The Barn

  • Ryan Corazza 01/17/2008 11:56 pm  

Talk about a frustrating, sloppy night for the Hoosiers. EJ picked up three fouls in the first half, (the first ticky-tac; the second a charge; the third was a bit suspect, but there was no reason for him to be ...

The Morning After: Tennessee State

  • Eamonn Brennan 12/04/2007 8:34 am  

There’s not a whole lot to say about this one. Tennesssee State, not unlike Chicago State last year, comprised a bunch of skittish guards and guys who put the small in small forward. (Zing!) Undersized and underskilled, they were never ...

The Morning After: Southern Illinois

  • Eamonn Brennan 12/03/2007 11:02 am  

First, apologies for the day-lateness. Thanks to an overeager waitress at Duffy’s in Chicago on Saturday night, I never wanted for a fresh Fat Tire, which, as you can imagine, is not the best way to avoid drunkenness if you’re ...

Kelvin Sampson addressed the media Thursday afternoon and here are a few highlights of what he had to say, courtesy of IU Media Relations: On Eric Gordon’s play in comparison to other freshmen he has coached: “I’ve never had a ...

The Morning After: Georgia Tech

  • Eamonn Brennan 11/28/2007 8:00 am  

A win is a win, sure, but there was plenty to complain about during IU’s 83-79 win over Georgia Tech last night. So let’s get into it. Hopefully this doesn’t become a recurring theme, because this team is too talented ...

Gordon and White lead Hoosiers past Tech, 83-79

  • Alex Bozich 11/27/2007 9:42 pm  

Eric Gordon scored 29 points and D.J. White added 18 points and 14 rebounds as No. 15 Indiana held off Georgia Tech 83-79 in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge on Tuesday night at Assembly Hall. The Hoosiers (5-1) led 38-34 at ...
