  2. Analysis: It's time for Indiana-Kentucky to be an annual event again

    It's good that the NCAA Tournament committee found a way to get Indiana and Kentucky back on the hardwood again but it's time for both schools to find a way to make this an annual event once again. Here's my take.

    Ever since Robert Johnson went down after driving to the basket against Purdue Feb. 20, all eyes have been on the sophomore guard and when he potentially could get back in the lineup. It appears the answer to that question is Thursday.

    If you look at the Big Ten's seeds Sunday, you could make an argument that all were about one line below what had been expected. Here is my take on it and what Tom Crean had to say Sunday night.

  9. Analysis: Where should IU be seeded in the NCAA Tournament?

    I don't think IU has necessarily fallen off of the No. 3 line. At least one Bracketologist agrees with me. What do you think? Here is my take.

  11. Analysis: Setting the table for IU in the B1G Tournament

    The Big Ten Tournament has never been a friendly place for Indiana basketball. The last time IU advanced out of the quarterfinals was 2006. Indiana will hope to do that on Friday when it faces Michigan at Noon at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Here is my take (and prediction) on what's to come.

  13. Analysis: How many people REALLY expected IU to go into Iowa and come home with the outright B1G title?

    I'm sure there were a lot of IU fans that were wishful or hopeful that Indiana could knock of Iowa on Senior Night before a national television audience in Carver-Hawkeye, but I can't believe a lot were super confident. All I can say is this IU team continues to impress me in ways I never expected. Here is my take on IU's 81-78 win Tuesday night.

  14. Analysis: Iowa and Maryland provide big perception week for IU Basketball

    Indiana basketball has locked up at least a share of its 22nd Big Ten basketball championship. The Hoosiers are ranked No. 12 in the nation this week but remain a No. 5 seed in the latest Bracketology. With games against Iowa and Maryland to wrap up the regular season, this will be a huge week in terms of perception.

  16. Analysis: IU could lose to Purdue and still be No. 1 seed in B1G Tourney

    Indiana controls its own destiny in the Big Ten men's basketball race with four games to go. But it's not just a scenario where Indiana has to win its final four games. Winning three could still get the Hoosiers the top spot in the conference. Here's my take.

  17. Analysis: I choose not to pile on Troy Williams

    It would be easy to pile on Troy Williams' play on Sunday as being a big reason why Indiana got humbled in the Breslin Center, 88-69. Williams did a disappearing act and was held scoreless for the first time this season. In his place, O.G. Anunoby put up decent numbers. But here's my take regarding Williams and the Hoosiers.

  18. Harrison Niego continues to add depth to IU's bench

    IU did what it is known to do in Assembly Hall, knock off ranked opponents. The Hoosiers took down No. 4 Iowa 85-78 on Thursday night and it is games like this, which convinced freshman walk-on Harrison Niego to pass up scholarship offers and choose to come play for IU.

  21. Column: IU continues to grow against Michigan

    IU led by 27 at one point in the second half, giving Michigan its largest deficit of the season. To say the Hoosiers made a statement on Tuesday night would be almost an understatement. Here’s my latest story on how IU has managed to turn itself around from a team that embarrassed itself at Duke, to a team that is now a legitimate contender for the Big Ten title.

  22. IU finds missing piece with OG Anunoby

    When word got out that James Blackmon Jr. would be out for the season, it seemed fitting for Indiana basketball, and its fans, to begin to panic. But with the absence of their leading scorer, the Hoosiers have managed to find strength in numbers through their starters and off their bench. Freshman OG Anunoby has become a replacement for Blackmon, and so far through the Big Ten season, he has done his job well.

  25. Analysis: After two B1G games, some new faces are emerging for the Hoosiers

    You expect Yogi Ferrell to get his points. There are a few other IU players that you have that same expectation for. But the emergence of players like O.G. Anunoby, Juwan Morgan, Collin Hartman and even Ryan Burton has made Indiana much deeper than I think most people expected. Here is my analysis following Saturday's win over Nebraska.
