NIT Quarterfinal Game Thread - IU vs. Wichita State | Tuesday @ 7:00PM on ESPN

Recommended Posts

Mercifully this year is over, though I admittedly would have kept watching.  I’m not going to name names, but I hope the Coach SS tweet the other day about no one transferring is wrong.  This team needs some serious roster turnover in my opinion.  
Interesting look on Romeo’s face at the end of the game.....
Boy without any turnover the results will be the same. Zero shooters.

I disagree. It’s been a huge issue as we have slept walked through multiple games while playing hard in others.  Effort has been very, very disappointing/inconsistent.


People don't score much on us. We just can't score. You don't end the season with those defensive metrics if you habitually have bad effort. Yes, there are some bad spurts, which isn't surprising from a young team. But this is an undersized team that has been hammered by injuries all year. We had a bad season because we were historically bad from 3 in Big 10 games, not because teams were beating us up from lack of effort (except the Minnesots game - that was bad).

IMO, lack of talent (read:shooting) is our biggest weakness.

BUT

It's the coach's job to assemble a talented roster.  The honeymoon for Archie is now over - either he and the staff coaches the hell out of the team over the summer or makes some radical changes to the roster and/or staff.  If not, next year could be the beginning of the end for him.  I'm surprised I'm saying this, but this team was bad, didn't really show any improvement and recruiting seems to be completely off track.

I wouldn't say completely off track. Franklin and TJD look promising but I dont see us landing anyone big until he proves he can get a team to perform at a high level consistently

Highlight of the night: Marshall referring to us as a “blue blood.” So there’s that, I guess...

Fitzner had been contributing some quality minutes lately and we couldn't shoot for sh-t tonight, so I was really puzzled as to why he didn't play one second. Throw him out there for 5-6 minutes and see what he can do. If he's the Fitzner of the middle point of the season, sit him back down. If he's the Fitzner of late, give him some run. That made no sense to me.
