Indiana Basketball: State of the Program (short thoughts prior to Big Ten play)

Ahead of Indiana’s first game in the 2022-2023 Big Ten season visiting the Scarlet Knights, I wanted to take a moment and reflect on the overall state of the Indiana basketball program, with the Hoosiers now 7-0 with two impressive wins already under their belt. The Hoosiers have placed upon themselves lofty expectations, so far everything has gone according to plan for the 2022-2023 season. … Continue reading Indiana Basketball: State of the Program (short thoughts prior to Big Ten play)

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. Utilizing depth in route to the victory, Indiana showed a toughness today. A toughness that is bleeding through this … Continue reading Bacot may be an All-American, but Trayce is THE All-American!

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

Indiana’s handled their lesser opponents with extreme prejudice, and have fully lived up to (and in my unprofessional and biased opinion, surpassed) the expectations the Hoosiers’ fans have had for the team. They’ve answered some big questions like, would they be able to get tough road wins, like they did in Xavier. Mike Woodson has the Indiana Hoosiers playing total team ball and unfortunately for … Continue reading But I wanted to beat North Carolina first. Tar Heels visiting Assembly Hall.

Business as usual, as the Hoosiers beat the JSU Tigers 90-51. (Indiana basketball short postgame thoughts)

Final out of Bloomington: Indiana Hoosiers 90 – Jackson State 51 The Indiana Hoosiers were able to rightfully handle the Jackson State Tigers. Leaving little doubt, the Hoosier depth was once again able to shine when the 0-4 tigers rolled into town. The Indiana Hoosiers beat the “0 for” Tigers, and left little doubt in this game. While Indiana teams of prior seasons may have … Continue reading Business as usual, as the Hoosiers beat the JSU Tigers 90-51. (Indiana basketball short postgame thoughts)

What I’m thankful for… (Indiana Hoosiers Thanksgiving)

In preparation of this great holiday of turkey, football, and drinking before 5 o’clock, basketball can tend to take the back seat. Not here in Indiana though. I was helping my daughter with her “I’m thankful for…” list for school and thought why don’t I make one myself. So for Thanksgiving I wanted to take a moment and mention a few things I’m currently grateful … Continue reading What I’m thankful for… (Indiana Hoosiers Thanksgiving)

Quick turnaround as the Hoosiers face off against Miami (OH) in far friendlier confines. (Indiana Basketball short pregame thoughts)

Quick turnaround for the Hoosiers who just pulled out the 2 point victory over Sean Miller and the Xavier Musketeers. In that win, the Hoosiers claimed their most significant away victory in quite some time. While many would have loved to see the Hoosiers march into Cincinnati and get a dominant through and through victory from start to finish, I honestly think that this ended … Continue reading Quick turnaround as the Hoosiers face off against Miami (OH) in far friendlier confines.

Sean’s looking to avenge his brother as Hoosiers visit the Musketeers. (IU v. Xavier basketball short pregame thoughts)

It’s time for the first true test for the Hoosiers as they will be taking the court against the Xavier Musketeers in Cincy on Friday at 6 o’ clock. The Xavier Musketeers are coming off a 23-13 season last year, looking to improve upon their middling standing in the Big East this season. Helmed by Archie Miller’s brother Sean, Xavier is returning without their key … Continue reading Sean’s looking to avenge his brother as Hoosiers visit the Musketeers. (IU v.

Uh Oh! Hoosiers have got the 3! IU finds range on way to 101.(Indiana Basketball postgame thoughts B-CU)

Heading into the Hoosiers matchup with the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats, the question still persisted on plenty of Hoosier fans minds… will we find our shooting range this year. The season has started better than last season, but with last season’s perimeter shooting being almost absent entirely, it only stood to get better. Indiana started this one slower than Hoosier fans would have liked for sure, but … Continue reading Uh Oh! Hoosiers have got the 3! IU finds range on way to 101.(Indiana Basketball postgame thoughts B-CU)

Will Hoosier depth continue to get shine as IU hosts the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats? (Indiana basketball short pregame thoughts)

In the season’s official opener against the Morehead State Eagles, Trayce Jackson Davis shouldered 23 minutes. Now while that may seem like a lot to some, in minutes distributed to your team’s All-American that is nothing! I’m hoping that in this matchup against the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats we will again get to see the bench get plenty of shine. Based on SI.com’s preseason ranking of all … Continue reading Will Hoosier depth continue to get shine as IU hosts the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats? (Indiana basketball short pregame thoughts)

A Short look at Indiana’s largest minute munchers before Morehead State (short player profiles)

Disclaimer: The following opinions are that of a hobbyist writer who quit the beautiful game on top (winning a CYO championship in the 8th grade). I am by no means an expert on the game. So heading into the actual season opener for the Indiana Hoosiers I wanted to go through some of the Hoosiers who will look to dictate the most minutes for us … Continue reading A Short look at Indiana’s largest minute munchers before Morehead State (short player profiles)
