    (2021) G Luke Brown

    I don’t follow as much but is his lack of recruitment due to playing in a low level of play? If so did he overcome any of that in AAU play? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  2. I was critical of the effort against Wisconsin. Tonight, against a pesky team while our better scorers struggled we battled. We gave effort. Effort can carry you on a tough night. Effort like Brunk showed in the second half. Effort like smith getting rebounds or tipping the ball out. Effort like Al and Rob driving the lane for contested shots. Effort to make them have to work on every possession which led to many bad shots. Not a perfect game and UConn may not be great but we needed this win. We had to change or plans mid game then it seemed late in the game we changed back. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
  3. I agree but dang he was supposed to be a shooter which we need. Surprised by he defense and rebounding Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUBB vs Wisconsin Game Thread 12/7 @ 4:30 pm BTN

    Agree which is why getting blown out at Wisconsin is worthy of concern and discussion. Not in panic mode yet but this flipped quickly from an opportunity to an embarrassment. I did not think we had to win this game but I expected us to battle and compete. It does only count as one loss but for a coach that needs to show the fan base that he is the guy this year we need less of these games. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Was he underrecruited because of who he played, his size? Seems like a great get as a walk on but would like to think he will be a contributor at some point Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    I was surprised that most on here thought he had to make it this year. I think he does as well but as we argue about things I think collectively we all agree, they need to make the NCAA this year. There are some on here who seem overly optimistic and push back on complaints but that might be due to those who are overly pessimistic. Remembering that there is a clock ticking for this year that most agree with reminds me we likely agree with each other on the bigger picture things. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  7. I wonder how many comments were in the Archie thread. It really seemed like most of the comments occurred in another thread where we discussed multiple candidates. Donavon seemed to get a lot of the discussion Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    I think Archie made a ton of sense and really had some things go well for him early. He was able to get All BT play from Morgan for 2 years and land a top 10 ranked kid Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    IUBB vs Wisconsin Game Thread 12/7 @ 4:30 pm BTN

    I remember being surprised at how almost universally everyone thought that Archie had to make the tournament this year. So I do think that many are expecting us to make it. I try to remain objective but it sure would be easier if we could string together some very good games this year. I don’t need them all to be wins but it would be nice to win 2 out of 3 and be competitive in all of them. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    This is a good point. I tended to prefer Holtmann because a friends son had played for him but even then it was a toss up. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Poll: Archie Miller

    Probably but OSU has to convince him after he turned them down the first time. So he wasn’t going there either but then he did. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Bowl Projection

    Which was my point earlier that had someone asked our admin if they had a preference they might have suggested they wanted NY. I realize these things have a plan but as we have seen a couple times today, some teams or conferences may suggest something that matches up with their wishes more.

    Many of our losses and even wins as cannon mentioned for UC Davis we gave such lousy effort that we lose or win in an underwhelming way. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUBB vs Wisconsin Game Thread 12/7 @ 4:30 pm BTN

    Not yet clear if a trend but for 12 of 13 games last year and now in our first BT game. Losing close yesterday would have been disappointing but getting blown out of the building was not good. This is a prove it year for Archie. I want him to succeed but yesterday was a good test and we come up very short. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Bowl Projection

    Given the admins love for the east (a lot of students now come to IU from NY) the pinstripe bowl would not surprise me. Hopefully our admin is not given a choice Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners
