  5. Analysis: It was a bad night to be a non-IU Big Ten basketball fan

    This was supposed to have been a reality check game for Indiana Basketball. Instead, the Hoosiers turned it into a statement game. And that statement was that these Hoosiers are for real.

  6. Analysis: IU is 8-1 in Big Ten play and Hoosier fans still feeling uneasy

    Indiana will head into the second half of the conference Tuesday no worse than tied for first place in the Big Ten.

  7. Analysis: Wisconsin shows why you shouldn't get too far ahead of yourself with Indiana's schedule

    Indiana was careless with the basketball Tuesday night. It didn't hit the offensive glass, had zero second chance points and its best shooters struggled from beyond the 3-point line. But the bottom line was that Indiana was able to come away with a 59-58 victory over Wisconsin to win its eighth game in a row. Here's my analysis as to why this IU team in particular -- and its fan base, too -- needs to take it one game at a time.

  11. Analysis: It was just Morehead State but ...

    Indiana looked better on the defensive end Saturday night. As you would expect the Hoosiers to do. But the most important thing I took from the win over Morehead State is that Indiana at least looked as if it was taking a little pride in what it was doing and tried to play together as a defensive unit. And that's a start.

    This was supposed to have been a measuring stick trip for Indiana in Maui this week as it was expected to face teams like Vanderbilt, UCLA and Kansas. Instead, IU's belly flop Monday night against Wake Forest will be a tough pill to swallow.

    There seems to be a lot of conversation about Indiana's first commit in the 2016 men's basketball class. Good pick up, or big time reach? Myself, I think the positives may outweigh the negatives. But it's close.
