  1. Great Game! Archie is such a class act. I love the way he’s coaching our Team. Our Team will improve because of this game. A really enjoyable viewing experience today.

  2. If that team was played 10 more times IU would win all 10 and that doesn’t mean at AH. Several missed layups, some missed FT’s and the unforced TO’s. Ark. Played good D. But IU played less than even average D and still only allowed 73. No IU lost this game more than the Hogs won it.

  3. Their center was very dominant in the second half…He exposed us a bit. He outplayed most everyone on the floor. We need far better performances out of Justin Smith.

    Without Morgan’s tenacity, we may have been blown out of the gym. Morgan picking up early fouls bodes trouble.

    Davis does not do well when he’s doubled….I’m as nervous when he gets bogged down inside as back in the days of VJ III with the ball. You just know too long of a touch is not going to turn out well.

    Maybe they were all on mental Thanksgiving break already….Just seemed out of sync. Chemistry took a bit of a drop. Early whistles against Phinisee also contributed to the raggedness.

    Morgan and Phinisee are the obvious floor leaders for the Hoosiers…It almost appeared a strategy by the refs to put them on the bench early…(which would also leave them in foul trouble late). Hurt Phinisee more because the Arkansas guards had speed.

    Needed another hard game soon …instead of the delicate pumpkin pie offerings coming up.
