  1. Unfortunately we are lucky it was that high... Sent from my LM-G850 using BtownBanners mobile app
  2. I agree...i took him saying that as changing the dispersion of min and giving the bulk of them to those that are bringing their best that day. Sent from my LM-G850 using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUBB vs Arkansas 12/29 @ 6 pm BTN

    All great points! Our guard play was atrocious and I agree that collectively they made a mess of this game. I guess I have been hoping the the FSU game wouldn't be an outlier with Green. It is so maddening that he has no recognition of time and possession. Your senior has to be able to recognize when the guards need to stop shooting the ball because no one is making anything and to go back to what ALWAYS got us our lead by pounding it inside. He can obviously be so good at times but Green has to LEAD... Sent from my LM-G850 using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUBB vs Arkansas 12/29 @ 6 pm BTN

    I don't usually like to place blame one player or person for a loss, but this one is on Green. One of our captains is ejected from the game and our senior leader should be a calming force that helps things get going. We need him on the floor because we need his potential points but man, it's times like these where he's got to step up. Sent from my LM-G850 using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUBB vs Nebraska 12/13 8 pm BTN

    Yeah you're right. I forgot about the close games early in the season last year and remembered them when I went back and looked. I guess I'm tired of being frustrated about the little things and if the team is able to gut out a win, regardless of the opponent and/or how ugly it is, I've decided to be happy with it and hope for growth.

    Last year we lost most of our close games....12 out of 13 games if I remember correctly. Is jury still out on how good we can be? Sure. But I like winning more than losing and if we are winning these type of games now and can be playing our best basketball at then end of the season then I will continue be happy when we win games...

    (2019) PG Austin Van Zyl

    Some have said that this feels like a Crean-like desperation recruit. With Archie saying that we will only go after someone that will help us in the 2019 class, I'm going to choose this to have more of the feeling of this being the type of unknown recruit Beilein would get at Michigan that would roast us for 20 point?

  8. It's clear now what is going on. IU must be an Android school and Memphis is a Mac school. Apple must have promised the parents $ if he chose Memphis and used FaceTime to do it. LQ will endorse the new 2023 AirPods after graduation...and all this time we have been worried about Adidas vs. Nike vs. UA... Sent from my SM-N960U1 using BtownBanners mobile app

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I know we need a shooter in the worst way and losing Harris doesn't help, but I can't understand the argument that we NEED more talent to win. Everyone coming back and our recruiting class coming in is a 4 or 5 star (according to 247) coming out of high school except Green, Durham, and Franklin. We have talent, just need development and togetherness. Watford and LQ would be great if it happens, but we really just need guys that are sold out for IU, can shoot the rock, and play nasty D.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    The lean Crean years involved getting 3 star recruits or lower from states out east and down south. I never understood why he would venture out of the state to pick up anyone under a 4 star. There are plenty of 3 stars in Indiana that have dreamed of putting on the jersey. I'd take a 3 star from the state of Indiana over a 3 star from another state any day of the week.

  12. Not sure if this has been stated I this thread or not, but I want to give credit to Archie for the development of the guards. Green, Al, and Phenisee. It seems like he has been criticized some this season for not developing players but I think our group of guards have made some strides. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using BtownBanners mobile app

    (2019) SF Trendon Watford to LSU

    Will this help us? Sent from my SM-N960U1 using BtownBanners mobile app
  14. With Gafford from Arkansas deciding not to play in the NIT and enter the draft it got me wondering...do you all think Romeo actually hasn't decided if he is leaving or not next season? CZ came back for his sophomore year so it's not unheard of, and Romeo would gain nothing by playing in the NIT unless he is returning. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using BtownBanners mobile app

    2019 NIT Tournament

    The NIT was a pipedream 4 weeks ago. The team turned it around and made a push that fell a bit short. We absolutely could have been selected today but were on the wrong side of it. My hope is that our fans can get over it. I fear that the constant negativity that I am seeing on social media is taking a toll on many facets of the program (recruiting, national perception, etc.). I know we sucked for a good portion of the season, but we have been playing our best basketball at the end of the season, minus the Ohio State game. I want the team to make a run, if for no other reason than to have positive momentum in the locker room before going into the off season. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using BtownBanners mobile app
