  1. I’m disappointed that Branch McCracken court won’t display the name of this Hoosier legend. Other blue blood programs like to showcase their rich tradition and pay respect to coaches who helped elevate the school’s program to national prominence. If Kentucky would play us, we’d go to Rupp and we will be traveling to play Kansas in December. They named their field house after a man that was very successful and is credited with building the winning tradition that the Jayhawks expect. Branch’s 1940 NCAA championship was against Phog Allen’s Kansas team. He was 31 and the youngest coach to win a national championship. Branch’s 1953 NCAA championship team beat Phog’s Kansas team. Branch McCracken is a name every Hoosier fan should know.

    (2020) G Sydney Parrish to INDIANA

    Her dad played basketball at Owen Valley HS in Spencer. After winning a sectional, he went to Vincennes and then to Ball State.

    I’m thrilled. She’s a great addition to next year’s team. Let’s hope she see success on the court and helps IU land future top Indy players. Welcome home, Sydney.

    (2020) G Sydney Parrish to INDIANA

    I really wanted Parrish to initially commit to Indiana coming out of high school. I was aware of a family connection in the Bloomington area since her dad starred at Owen Valley. In conversation with someone close to the family, coming to IU was very much an option that would allow family to come and watch her games. Two years later and obviously things have changed. I don’t know what has prompted this need to transfer.but I would be thrilled to have her playing on the wing. There is never going to be another Ali Patberg but a Syndey Parrish with her own talents and skill set could be a tremendous boost to the core group. Go get her, Terri.
  6. I wish him nothing but the best of luck. I hope he can stay healthy. It’s got to be frustrating to have that interruption every season.
  7. We’ve got to sustain this.
  8. X has got to stay out of foul trouble today. He could be our key to winning.
  9. We’ve shot 2 FT and Illinois has shot 12. I hope Mike starts complaining. Illinois fouls with their lower body much like Wisconsin. It’s still a foul,
  10. When X got that second foul called, Coach should have had a screaming fit.

    Terrible out of bounds call giving the ball back to Nebraska. The baseline ref must be asleep,

    We have not gone to the free throw line. Driving the lane should get some free throw attempts.

    Hope Big Mike can find a way out of the doghouse. We might need him to lean on Kofi.
