  1. Things I’m looking forward to seeing in tonight’s game:

    1. IU’s opponent played an overtime game yesterday – will IU run them off the court?

    2. Can Robinson run the point and stick the outside jumper?

    3. Can Will find an offensive rhythm in the half court game?

    4. Will Noah be able to finish at the free throw line?

  2. Mayans missed it by a year… Sign the world is ending… I just agreed with back-to-back posts by Aruss and coachv

    (Sorry, just kidding guys… Not really… But really…)

  3. Geoff – Now that I’m not preoccupied with #IUFB, I can focus on basketball and give everyone the expert insight they come to expect from the Scoop.

  4. coachv, you are wrong, everything Vic did was legal in the NBA. Now if he would have hand checked, then he would have been called for the foul. Again, you are assuming that the refs make calls in the NBA until it suits them. It must be a situation where none of those refs has money on the game so it didn’t matter.

  5. Jeremy – can you do a locker room check on IU athletics to let us know what the hazing situation is? This Richie Incognito story is beyond bizarre. He sounds like a real sociopath and his dad sounds like some of the posters on this site.

  6. I would like to see crisp passing, defensive intensity, and good rebounding. How unselfish IU plays tonight, will also be a good indicator of potential. I think the offense will come if the aforementioned tasks are a success.
