    Cool The Official 2007-08 IU Basketball Thread

    The regular season starts tonight at home against Chattanooga...on the Big Ten Network.

    The 9th-ranked Hoosiers are coming off of a pair of preseason wins, 121-76 over North Alabama and 111-62 over UNC-Pembroke.

    Chattanooga is 1-0 after a 120-59 win over Covenant.

    Regardless, IU should win this one with ease.

    Prediction:
    Indiana 105
    Chattanooga 73

    Due to the apparently low strength of schedule and the acquisition of Eric Gordon, I'm really feeling a special year on tap for the Cream and Crimson. I predict a 25-5 regular-season record and dual Big Ten Championships (regular season and tournament) this season.

    GO !

    I can't wait for tonight. I get out of my law class at 5:15 and then it is time for hoops again on the IU campus. What a joyous time. Hopefully they get me off this Pacers/Colts induced snide.

    Way to alienate the fan base, BigTen.

    Dumbasses.

    Now with the amazing BigTen Network I'll get to see hardly any IU games, if any at all. I was becoming slowly a diehard IU fan. Apparently the BigTen can afford to lose me.

    We're shooting 50% and LOSING.

    UTC is shooting 57%. They're 14-19 from inside the arc. That is ridiculously unacceptable.

    Are we playing any defense at all?!

    I'm watching the game on the BTN right now. The first half was atrocious. I could hardly watch. We're up 65-61 right now with about 11 minutes to go in the half. Without EJ we're down 20 right now.

    85-71 with 7:30 to go. Gordon has to be over 30 pts by now. I think he's hit 5-6 threes.

    We've doubled them in the second half so far (50-25).

    FINAL:
    IU 99
    UTC 79


    A little closer than I would have liked, but at least we got our heads out of our asses and got the job done.

    I really hope the apparent lack of defense in the first half was just a fluke, because looking at the shooting percentages, we look like an efficient, offensive juggernaut.

    1-0

    EJ, 33 points on 9-15 shooting (7-11 from downtown)

    Bassett, 20 points on 8-10 shooting (4-5 from downtown)

    DJ, 17 points on 5-7 shooting

    We shot 54% for the game and 56% from three-point range (14-25).

    Need to work on the free throws, though. Only 74% on 23-31 shooting.

    We need to work on defensive rotation most. I realize Chattanooga is probably quicker than almost everyone we play but that's still no excuse.

    Although overall the defense wasn't very good, I was very pleased with Gordon on the defensive side of the ball. The only thing I think he needs to work on is his ball-handling. Other than that, he doesn't have many weaknesses.

    I just got back from the game and all I can say is wow. I remember seeing Gordon playing 9-10 times in HS and wondering if he could do it in college. He answered with a resounding HELL YES tonight. Truely an incredible player. Also anyone that thinks OJ Mayo is better than him doesn't know a thing about the game of basketball. Gordon is lightyears ahead of the ball hogging, shot chucking OJ.
    Lets compare their stats from their first game...
    First EJ...
    33 pts. 9/15 shooting, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 7/11 from behind the arc, and I'd say two turnovers probably.

    Now OJ...
    32 pts. 12/27 shooting, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 4/11 from behind the arc, and EIGHT turnovers.

    Oh and the key stat Gordon's team won, and rest assured that it may not have happened had he not been dominant.


    Lance Stemler is the worst basketball player I have ever seen at the college level. PERIOD. He is awful. He doesn't do a single thing well and IDK how the hell Sampson named him a captain. Stemler is hated by the IU student crowd is going to be receiving the Ben Allen treatment probably from here on out.


    Also I'm surprised no one talked about DJ's fall. Without a doubt the most terrifying moment I have ever had as a sports fan. Assembly Hall went DEAD silent when he fell. Not a single person said a word. When they handed a towel out to Ellis I was certain he had compound fractured his arm. That is how horrible the fall looked. I was sure it was either that or a shattered elbow needless to say it didn't look good. However the guy gets up holding a towel over his left eye and gives the number 1 sign with his hand to the crowd, and the place ERUPTED. The guy is a warrior period and a tremendous leader. They took him to the locker room and stitched him up and he returned to the bench 5 minutes later. Truely amazing, but what a horrifying moment. I think the IU campus would have been in a collective state of depression for the rest of the year had everyone's worst fears been true.
