Hoosier Morning

1. HOOSIERS HQ
Eastern Washington’s attack basketball left Indiana on its heels and with a loss, Mike writes.

It wasn’t a good loss, but it’s far too soon to hit the panic button, I wrote.

Consistency and focus are still the message for IU football heading into the season finale, Mike wrote.

IU freshmen Tyra Buss and James Blackmon Jr. took home weekly Big Ten awards, we reported.

2. IT’S INDIANA
The heat is on IU basketball but take a cooling breath, Pete DiPrimio of the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel writes.

The Eastern Washington loss is the kind that can doom a bubble team, turn public opinion and breed speculation on coaches, Myron Medcalf of ESPN.com writes.

Indiana’s defense rests, and the judgment is not a favorable one for the Hoosiers, Rick Bozich of WDRB.com writes.

“They weren’t doing anything” was the way EWU’s Venky Jois described the IU defense, Jordan Littman of Inside the Hall writes.

Bright days are still ahead for IU basketball, but the Hoosiers have a long way to go, Justin Albers of AllHoosiers.com writes.

For one fall in 1915, Jim Thorpe helped make Bloomington the center of the football world’s attention, Ken Bikoff of HoosierFlash.com writes.

  1. here are the results of Monday’s (shtuffshow) 3-on-3 game:

    Geoff – Yogi + Troy + RJ = 91
    HfH – Yogi + RJ + JBJ = 73
    Chet – Troy + RJ + JBJ = 61
    Jeremy – Troy + RJ + Nicky Buckets = 59
    (it didn’t pay off to be different…)

    So Geoff is the winner!!!! Woooooo Hooooooo

    Standings

    Geoff – 2
    Chet – 1
    Clarion – 1
    oIUg – 1

  2. Here are Friday’s groupings for 3-on-3… This is going to take some deep thought into effective bench play (you’ll want to pay attention to the scoring rules below!):

    Group 1 (pick 1) – Yogi, Troy, Blackmon, Robbie J

    Group 2 (pick 1) – Max, Colin, Holt

    Group 3 (pick1) – April, Priller, Ritchie, Burton

    Scoring (this game only!):

    Points (1), Assists (2), Def Rebs (1), Off Rebs (2), Blocks (1), Steals (1), TO’s (-1)

    Group 1 player = Total score X 1
    Group 2 player = Total score X 2
    Group 3 player = Total score X 3

    CHOOSE YOUR BENCH PLAYERS WISELY!
