    I hate taking credit for wins but IU is 3-0 since my daughter was born on 2/26. She decided to come 5 weeks early to help our Hoosiers! IU won their last championship the year I was born....coincidence??? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Rob. That foul on Winston with 8 to go was the smartest basketball play I’ve seen from this team in 4 years. The defense you played on him after? Well brother, that brought a tear to my eye. Amazing team effort today fellas. WHOLE team! Juwan, your work on the glass in the last two games has been master class my friend. You are my favorite player to ever put on that jersey. Justin Smith, I’ve been hard on you son. I did it because I believed so much in your ability. I knew there was a whole other level that you just couldn’t get to. Welcome to the show kid. Great game guys. No matter what happens the rest of the way, I loved the way you guys came together in these last couple weeks. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    IU Hoosier41

    Juwan Morgan Appreciation Thread

    Love all our seniors, but this guy gave his all for the Hoosiers and is the definition of the player we want here. Busted his ass for 4 years, never gave up. Statistics don’t lie, his Indiana career is up there with the greats of Indiana Basketball lore. Thank you JMo!!

    (2019) SF Keion Brooks Jr. to Kentucky

    After reading this board, viewing a few posts at Peegs, talking to some people I'm going to change my pick from UK to IU. 52%-48% IU right now. I'm not sure he fully knows where he is going but I think he is leaning our way.

    Hope it's IU. Kinda like the kid. By chance if it's UK. I wash my hands of him. I, in noooo way root for anyone or anything associated with that school. That is how I was raised and the way my children were brought up. SoInd proud! It is bad enough that those Hilljacks have invaded our region here. Keep your freakn' pUKe gear out of my stores and off of my streets!

    Keion is ultimately going to make the decision that fits what he wants & no one else. I'm not saying poppa Brooks isn't going to try to convince him that that is UK. I also think it's overblown how much Sr wants him at UK though. I think Keion likes UK more than some believe. It's close I know that much. I joked with sr that he is going to get a scholarship offer soon by all these fans getting him & Jr mixed up, he got a kick out of that. Sorry for going MIA, I've tried to stay off any forums this year due to the bi polar fan base lol.

    The only way you don't see him back for year four is if you unplug your tv and don't get on a computer or phone. He will be here for a long time. Hope Trendon comes! Go IU!!

    One thing we have going for us is that Archie is doing the recruiting himself and UK is using an assistant.

    Billingsley99 on HSN just posted this. Let's all hope this is accurate and CAM can get it done. I know that the part about Franklin is accurate do to rumors that came out at the time so let's see if the rest comes to fruition. "I received a text yesterday from a number I did not recognized and asked if I wanted to talk Indiana basketball recruiting? Of course I said yes and expected it to be a member of HSN. I received a call a few minutes later and it was the guy that told me the Big Fish and lots of other info but it has always come through a mutual friend. He said I see that you post a lot of what I say so i am just going to come straight to you. Told us all to relax KB is still good. I posted what I was told about him in the KB thread. He said we have to go back to get full picture. Several months ago CAM reached out to a group of recruits and told them the time is now, or there may not be enough space for you. 1 week later AF was ours and Newman, Booknight and Ramsey were off looking for their school. KB and TJD were told that no matter when they wanted to commit, they had a spot. This was not given to Watford though. Throughout the whole process it has been a 4 man class and there was a time in which the staff felt positive the RL would return so that last spot needed to fill a need not a luxury. CAM and staff have been doing a great job on the recruiting trail and parents are pleased because he is being honest and not telling everyone that they are a starter from day 1. Things cooled between us and TW and a big reason is TW did not feel prioritized and wanted to be sure parents could see him play. At some point his parents and brother assured him that if he wanted to go to IU they would love it. They are not in any way pushing it on him, just not excluding it. AS chemistry issues have come along and imminent realization that RL is gone we may have plenty of spots and 1 may be a spot that TW could step into right away. In the mean time those other schools have made him a priority and promised things that they may or may not be able to deliver. Ed has taken a big role in this recruitment and has really won over the family and TW. In fact this guy believes that a month ago had we said TW has a starting spot next year he would have pulled the trigger. Recently he has been a big target for us and he have not closed the gap completely but we are for sure in the mix. The thought of KB, TJD and TW has been discussed and talked amongst them quite a bit. Distance is still a concern but will not be the determining factor. The recent LSU issue has raised even more concern. Memphis has a lot of tools that may help the NBA route but not sure if they offer anything else that will improve his game or put him in national spotlight. Making the McDonalds team was big, not just becasue KB did not but some feel there was some concern on why KB had a spot and not TW if he were to wait. Staff did a great job of handling that issue. Recently Lester Quiones has said that he wanted to play with TW, no way that this is a package deal but it does help us if we may be losing a couple of guards on our current roster. (speculation) We have ramped up that recruitment a lot. He summed everything up with this. CAM is the right guy and it killing it on the recruiting trail with parents, players AAU coaches high school coaches etc... if TW comes for an official he is ours. The only way that he will is if it is to commit. Could happen on the visit. Feels that it would be hard to turn down Indiana after getting another up close look and he already knows how our fans are and what we all meant to his brother and wants to make the decision on what is best for him not an emotional pick. If we get him here that would be huge. This is all from 1 person and I have not heard this from anyone else. I feel that he has been right on everything he has told me so I wanted to share it with you. Some of this may be common knowledge but I wanted to include as much of the convo as possible. Now we have to get him back to campus!!!!!"

    I think his final 3 schools are all willing to do things that are also making Wade testify in court. IU let the Watford family know a while back they are not playing those games.

    I think he is going to play for whoever he decides. I will say from what I have been told that ever since the UK visit everything has been kept very close to the vest. Not a lot if any chatter going on. So I have no idea as of right now but will do lots of asking in the next two weeks.

    Can the Hoosiers go dancing?

    Delphi, the #1 ranked bracketologist, has IU safely in the tournament as one of the last 4 byes, meaning they wouldn’t even be playing a First Four game. Wow. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    I don't understand why people don't think Archie wants to get out and run. He has said this over and over. He wants to push the ball, but it has to be off of defensive steals or rebounds. He is not going to run an offense that takes quick shots when the defense is back. He wants to take an early layup/3 off transition or make the defense work and hopefully break down. He has said this for two years now.

    Great small moment. 1st OT. Brad Davison catches a pass on the right wing in a scramble situation. Race has to close out about 10 ft to get to the shooter. If it’s Davis, he doesn’t get there and Davison’s got an open 3. It it’s Smith or Juwan they probably close out of control, Davison puts a little shot fake on them and gets to the rim for an easy finish. Race closes hard and urgently, but perfectly under control. Hand up, feet under him. Takes away the shot and gives him no angle to attack. Perfect defensive play. Race was so good tonight. My college coach would have said, “That boy’s been taking notes.”
