    Did you see that bounce pass he made in the first half to a rolling Tom Pritchard? Holy crap the degree of difficulty on that one was off the charts. That kid is the king of the bounce pass.
    Yeah, I also saw Prichard fumble it like a doofus even though it couldn't have been any more perfect if Steve Nash had thrown it

    Yep, then he went up like a sissy and got the shot blocked.

    There was so much epic fail by Pritchard on that play that it was almost comical.

    Yeah, but I'll give him credit: he's played pretty well lately. Cutting down on the absurd fouls, rebounding nicely, boxing out, defending well. I will be ecstatic when we don't have to rely on him as a starter anymore, but he hasn't been bad lately.

    He's played better. Unfortunately, since his freshman year there's been nowhere to go but up. Still I'll give him credit for sticking it out.

    So, in the last three games, all against ranked teams, we're 2-1, with the one loss being by a single point.

    Are we starting to turn the corner...?

    I can't hear you over the huge man crush I have on Tom Crean and Jordan Hulls' passing.

    Michigan St. wasn't ranked anymore, but yes, yes we are!

    Toss in Zeller next year, with this group getting experience and starting to win games

    I hope so. It certainly looks like it. Plus, we have an identity now. This is Jordan Hulls' team. He is the leader.

    I just don't understand what or why it finally clicked for this team. If they had been playing like this all season, we would really be in business. I mean the ball movement and player movement on offense has just totally reversed course. What the hell happened?

    I keep hearing something took play after the Northwestern game. That doesn't explain the Iowa embarrassment, but I heard Crean got into the team after the Northwestern game, and other than the Iowa game, they've responded well, even on the road and Wisconsin and Michigan St., though those were losses

    IU is winning AND has five banners. We've beaten more ranked teams than you have this season. Suck on that for awhile.

    What Crean has done at IU is simply amazing, he is kicking Purdue and every other in-state school's *** in recruiting despite the lack of wins.

    Purdue, Notre Dame, and Butler are at the height of their powers and none of the top instate players want to go there. Think about that for a moment.

    As IU continues to improve Bloomington will become a black hole pulling in the top instate players for eternity.

    Ok hear me out, Verdell and Hulls can't be on the court at the same time.

    Why? Because Verdell needs the ball in his hands, and while Hulls is good as a spot up shooter, the TEAM is 100% better when he is running the offense. Everyone else moves looking for the ball. Verdell bogs us down.

    They need to never be on the court together and if that means Verdell has to go to the bench permanently, then so be it.

    Our run came with Verdell hurt, and then today our best stretches were when Hulls or Verdell was out there and the other was on the bench. We need to keep it like that.

    We lost our lead and momentum when they would try to share the ball. A minor problem, but hopefully one Crean recognizes.

    That's just my diagnosis though.

    There's something to that. Me and my roommate had that talk the other day. I don't think they can't play together. I just don't think Verdell needs to handle the ball near as much as he has been in the past. He needs to spot up more and handle it only in a pinch. He turns it over too much. I thought the way he was utilized tonight is how he should be utilized the rest of the season. We wouldn't have won that game without his stones at the end of the game. Those 5 points won us the game.

    The ball handlers for this team should be (in this order): Hulls, Rivers, Moore. Jones only in a pinch.

    Dude, don't talk **** to them. They are still a better team than us. We haven't won anything yet. We are playing better and winning the recruiting battle, and we should definitely be happy about that. It's way too early for the "we're back" and all that stuff. Long way to go still. But progress is being made and we are all more than thrilled about it.

    I hate to say thank you to an iu fan, but thank you. In all honesty, you guys have looked sharper than we have recently in my opinion. Wisconsin wasn't good and neither was Minnesota. As long as we win the 8th I'll be happy

    Wisconsin is next to impossible to beat at the Kohl Center. I wouldn't be too upset about that loss. But on the 8th, it's war!

    Jones should get an iso maybe 1 out of every 10 times he is on the court. He's too predictable after a while with his moves. He's a decent ball handler, but he dribbles himself into double teams way too often.

    Hulls on the other hand is pretty much a virtuoso when it comes to handling the basketball. He turns it over occasionally, but it's usually because he's out thought everyone else on the court and is a step ahead of the guy he's trying to throw the ball to.

    Also, Victor Oladipo mushroom stamped Mbakwe tonight. He's going to be trying to get the Spalding logo out of his head for a couple weeks.

    I hate to sound like a homer here, but Jordan Hulls may be the best bounce passer I have ever seen. That dude is incredible at bounce passes. He fits them into some seriously tight windows too. Yeah, he's my favorite Hoosier right now.

    I'm pretty sure during the broadcast they said Ohio and Michigan state had never won there. Something about us having the most wins there against Bo Ryan is something too. I will be there Feb 8 to witness the victory in person.

    You will win at Mackey, but I think you are going to lose when you come to Bloomington. The fans have been absolutely bonkers lately and the rivalry is always close.
