THREE-POINT SHOT

1. INDIANA BASKETBALL

Indiana has too often lacked an edge when playing on the road during the past year, I wrote.

Inside the Hall’s Ryan Corazza looks at some statistics through 13 Big Ten games.

The Star’s Kyle Neddenriep has a good story on Austin Etherington; the relationship-building stuff we knew, but there is good insight into how Etherington has handled being a IU commit.

Peter Jurkin has returned from a stress fracture injury, the Charlotte Observer is reporting.

2. BIG TEN BASKETBALL

Penn State handled Minnesota’s size by shooting 31 3-pointers and making enough of them to pull out a critical win, the Daily Collegian’s Emily Kaplan wrote. Turnovers and missed shots down the stretch were too much for the Gophers to overcome, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s Myron P. Medcalf wrote.

Northwestern tried to capture its early-season magic and somewhat did that in beating Iowa, the Chicago Tribune’s Teddy Greenstein wrote. Iowa did not apply enough defensive pressure, the Iowa City Press-Citizen’s Pat Harty wrote.

Here are the updated Big Ten standings.

  1. There have been a lot of assistant coaching moves all over the NCAA this year. In the past IU never had this happen, cause frankly, we didn’t have a lot of assistants who were highly sought after by bigger programs.

  2. I wonder if Danny Hope will feel any less secure this year than last? His 2011 recruiting class does not forecast his future to be getting more positive. PUke’s Big Drum might start tolling for him.

  3. Is it just me or does it seem that when an IU kid is in a tussle, the refs always seem to grab him instead of the other team’s player? After hard fouls either way, loose ball on the floor or contested rebounds, even when our kids are clearly not the aggressor. The lead picture jogged that tidbit in my wee brain regardless of who started that one.

  4. I don’t know if I believe in your conspiracy theory Who? but I did think it was extremely ridiculous that Rivers was being treated like the aggressor when he had just been molested by Novak on the baseline with nothing being called. I don’t fault Rivers for losing his cool in that sequence…I probably would have been doing a bit more mouthing to the official.

  5. Danny Hope must be feeling the temperature in his W. Laffy coaching office rising already. He gave a damn bitter and defiant retort about losing his linebacker coach of 3 weeks. A total different comportment to losing a quick turn-a-round assistant coach than were Coach Wilson’s thoughts and words. If I remember how I found out I’ll post it.
