Tamar Bates continues his offensive consistency as the Hoosiers get the win over Kennesaw State Owls (Indiana Basketball Postgame thoughts)

Final out of Bloomington: Kennesaw State Owls 55 – Your Indiana Hoosiers 69. The Indiana Hoosiers came into Assembly Hall with very little gas on the offensive end. Unable to get the lid off the bucket initially, the Hoosiers decided to take their slow start and extend it well through to halftime in this game. With no Xavier Johnson, who had foot surgery this week, … Continue reading Tamar Bates continues his offensive consistency as the Hoosiers get the win over Kennesaw State Owls (Indiana Basketball Postgame thoughts)

The Hoosiers look to crush the Owls following big games from Race, Jalen, CJ, Logan… heck a whole lot of guys. (Indiana vs. Kennesaw State pregame thoughts)

The Hoosiers are hosting the Kennesaw State (GA) Owls on Friday and that means the Hoosier Faithful may be subjected to even more time with the lingering questions regarding the big moments. Because by all measure, I would hope to see this upcoming bout go about the way the Elon matchup went. In that matchup the Hoosiers were able to utilize the deeper portions of … Continue reading The Hoosiers look to crush the Owls following big games from Race, Jalen, CJ, Logan… heck a whole lot of guys.

Trayce out, CJ Gunn and Logan Duncomb crack double digits as the Hoosiers beat Elon to go 9-3, but is anyone’s mind at ease? (Indiana postgame thoughts)

No Xavier Johnson, No Trayce Jackson-Davis in this one as the Indiana Hoosiers were able to take the commanding victory in Bloomington over the Elon Phoenix. The Hoosiers were able to utilize the rotation to its deepest in this one on their way to an impressive 96 points. Yes, they did give up 72 to Elon, but I am definitely happy as a fan for … Continue reading Trayce out, CJ Gunn and Logan Duncomb crack double digits as the Hoosiers beat Elon to go 9-3, but is anyone’s mind at ease?

Indiana continues to start games like a pick up team meeting for the first time, what’s it going to take for this team to come out with some intensity before Elon? (Kansas postgame thoughts)

Loads of talent, just wish we came out once like anything other than a bunch of pick-up heroes meeting for the first time and figuring out how to play off one another. While the Jayhawks came out to play right from the tip, once again the Hoosiers were unable to show up with anything in the tank out of the gate in this one. Once … Continue reading Indiana continues to start games like a pick up team meeting for the first time, what’s it going to take for this team to come out with some intensity before Elon?

Slow-to-start Indiana showed more fight than that box score would make you think. (Hoosiers vs. Arizona postgame thoughts.

Well… that first 10 minutes may have been some of the most painful minutes I’ve had as a Hoosier fan. Allowing Arizona to jump out to the 27-10 lead at around the ten minute night almost certainly spelled doom for the Indiana Hoosiers. While one could focus on that slow start, I want to commend the fight the Indiana Hoosiers showed tonight. Don’t close this … Continue reading Slow-to-start Indiana showed more fight than that box score would make you think. (Hoosiers vs. Arizona postgame thoughts.

The Hoosiers look to carry momentum into the City of Sin and beat Arizona (Indiana University – Arizona pregame thoughts)

Heading into our matchup with the Arizona Wildcats, the Indiana Hoosiers are riding a wave of momentum. Trouncing Nebraska at home was much needed following the statistical anomaly that was Indiana’s shooting at Rutgers. With 2 of their toughest back-to-back games coming, time for Hoosiers to continue the Big Ten tour of dominance that the Purdue Boilermakers have largely been quarterbacking. The Arizona Wildcats could … Continue reading The Hoosiers look to carry momentum into the City of Sin and beat Arizona (Indiana University – Arizona pregame thoughts)

Get right time for the #14 Indiana Hoosiers hosting Nebraska (Indiana Nebraska pregame thoughts)

Alright Indiana… you’ve got that chip on your shoulder now. After having strayed off course in that last game against Rutgers, the Hoosiers shooting was poor enough to be run out your local YMCA. I have to imagine shooting is now the focus of most drills before the Nebraska Cornhuskers come to town. Because while I pray that that game was a statistical anomaly, one … Continue reading Get right time for the #14 Indiana Hoosiers hosting Nebraska (Indiana Nebraska pregame thoughts)

Rutgers is our Daddy. Hoosiers run out of the RAC. Learn from it and then flush it. (Indiana-Rutgers short thoughts)

Indiana 48… Rutgers 63… Now 2 days removed from the utterly deflating Rutgers performance, I am still left with the question, did Indiana really think they would not have to figure out what to do when our All-American is double or even triple teamed? The Hoosiers genuinely played like a double team was a revolutionary concept that the Scarlet Knight’s most deranged game planners installed. … Continue reading Rutgers is our Daddy.

Trayce’s Tour of Big Ten Dominance Starts in Piscataway, even after 5 straight Ls to Rutgers (Indiana Hoosiers pregame thoughts)

The Indiana Hoosiers find themselves in a favorable position, entering December still unbeaten. While their path to December has been extraordinarily by the book, the Hoosiers have exhibited an ability to oppress the opposition by relying on defensive tenacity that immediately feeds into the offense through high emotion, momentum garnering transition buckets. With an utter domination of the interior, this Hoosier team is beginning to … Continue reading Trayce’s Tour of Big Ten Dominance Starts in Piscataway, even after 5 straight Ls to Rutgers (Indiana Hoosiers pregame thoughts)

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)
