THREE-POINT SHOT

1. INDIANA BASKETBALL

Poor transition defense and rotation allowed Purdue to have too many open shots and, thus, keep Indiana at bay, Dustin wrote.

The current team has to develop a better mental approach or the incoming recruits are going to be put in a bad position, I wrote.

Expectations should begin being placed on this team next season, the Indy Star’s Bob Kravitz wrote. The Hoosiers had too many missed chances and mistakes, the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette’s LaMond Pope wrote.

At least the Hoosiers are done with E’Twaun Moore and JaJuan Johnson, the IDS’ Ryan Winn wrote. It wasn’t hard to believe an upset was possible, the IDS’ Nathan Hart wrote, up until the game began. The Hoosiers did the usual bit: trail early, fight back and come up short, the IDS’ Greg Rosenstein wrote.

2. BIG TEN BASKETBALL

Purdue won back-to-back games in Assembly Hall for the first time since 1996 and ’97, the Lafayette Journal & Courier’s Jeff Washburn wrote.

  1. Does anyone know what Ron Patterson left early in the second half for? I hope we are targeting others too hard and forgetting about him.

  2. Dwayne, I wouldn’t worry about that. He tweeted this after he left: “Homework calls, headed back to crib…. Wish I could suit up and play. #2012 The Takeover!!!” Doesn’t sound like someone who’s changing his mind to me.

  3. Laffy-

    Enjoyed the picture show immensely. Reminds how we must maintain our sense of humor. Loved the Mackey rafters joke.

  4. Laffy- A truly hilarious and extremely creative link, that was. If reading that doesn’t make you smile, few things can.
