  1. Romero deserves the benefit of the doubt. He had an injury and he's sitting out until he feels he is ready to play. Back injuries can be difficult to recover quickly from. I don't know why there is all this discussion. Who cares if some fan thinks he's faking it? Besides, without Romero we're getting a taste of next year's play and its not as bad as some thought it might be. Substitute Trayce Jackson-Davis for Juwan Morgan and you've basically got next year's team. (OK we'll also be without McRoberts and Fitzner who have both looked decent in the NIT).
  2. It's not coincidence that Green's increase in scoring has occurred during IU's winning over the past several weeks. Since the Wisconsin game, Green has shot 55% from 3-point range while the rest of the team has shot 22%. His 3-point shooting has kept the team in several games. Without Green, Indiana would have lost more games and might not have even made the NIT. Indiana will need Green's good play to continue to win during the NIT and next year.

    (2019) SF Trendon Watford

    I seem to remember that Coach Miller had a home visit with Trenton Watford and family. Was that the end of the recruitment.
  4. Devote Green's solid play is one of the reasons for IU getting back on track at the end of the year. He almost bailed IU out against Ohio State with 26 points. And, St. Francis' lead would have been even greater without Devonte's 3-point shooting the first half.
  5. Both Noah Vonlee and Thomas Bryant must have benefited from their time in the G League since both became NBA starters.

    2019 General Recruiting Thread

    What does this conversation about Damezi Anderson have to do with 2019 recruiting? Just curious.
  7. We would have been better with Keion Brooks than without him. But the team's performance in January and February hurt us. Had Brooks announced in the fall like Jackson-Davis did we probably would have gotten him. But we didn't. I'm sure he will do well at Kentucky--maybe not one and done--but he will contribute positively. Time to move on. We have a strong enough roster to do better next year even if we add nobody else. Players have to improve upon their weaknesses over the summer. Hopefully nobody transfers and everyone is healthy. And, hopefully everyone buys in and the coaching staff figures out better how to run a more dynamic offense. I'll be cheering on the team in the NIT and I'm looking forward to a better season in 2019-2020.
  8. Romeo may get drafted on the hope that he develops. But no guard who can't shoot will play in the NBA. It's not going to happen. On one level I don't blame him for taking the money. Anybody watching yesterday's game can see he isn't ready to play in the NBA. But who wants to sit on the bench all season.
  9. Yea, let's get in a Twitter fight with the parents of our top recruit. That's really smart and helpful.
  10. Romero may be a lottery pick. Most projections have him in the 8-12 range, although I've seen one mock draft that has him at 29. But I don't know how he can play guard in the NBA without an outside shot. Even if he is a lottery pick, he won't play in any meaningful way until he develops a reliable 3-point shot.
  11. Why are IU fans contacting players on social media or responding to a player's parent's twitter? You only embarrass yourselves and our school. It is stupid and harmful. Leave it alone.

    IU v OSU BTT Thread

    Sad. Outplayed, out-coached.

    IU v OSU BTT Thread

    The whole team has reverted back to its January/February style of play.
  14. Archie probably asked Keion for the last word.
  15. Your 75% is continent upon IU beating Ohio State on Thursday and then Michigan State on Friday.
