Bacot may be an All-American, but Trayce is THE All-American! (Indiana-UNC short postgame thoughts)

Final score out of Bloomington, Indiana Hoosiers 77 – North Carolina Tar Heels 65. Well Indiana found itself in foul trouble, and took the court only to show that no matter who they’ve got on the court this season they will be playing relentless, smash-mouth defense.

But I wanted to beat North Carolina first. Tar Heels visiting Assembly Hall. (Indiana Basketball pregame)

They’ve answered some big questions like, would they be able to get tough road wins, like they did in Xavier. Mike Woodson has … Continue reading But I wanted to beat North Carolina first.

Final out of Bloomington, Little Rock 68 – Indiana 87. Well… I have to admit I was surely bummed that Trayce was a precautionary inactive in this one. While I was bummed, I get it.
