    Player decisions

    Well, we had smalls playing 5 this year, didn't play tackle, and couldn't shoot. And couldn't even make the tournament lol.

    Well, one could say TJD played 34mpg because Brunk wasn't available. The year prior, TJD was playing 30 and JB was playing 20. Honestly this has little to do with Race, except I don't see him as an effective 5 when TJD is out. He's like 225LBs. Ideally, I like the split 2 years ago. If Brunk and TJD were clogging the lane together, it just means that Archie didn't know WTF he was doing lol. Either that, or one of the two weren't listening. In Woodson's 41, if Brunk was playing off ball 5, I think TJD could be very effective at the 4 (Woodson wants TJD to work on his shot, so does TJD). At the end of the day, I'd rather TJD be the floater between 4 and 5, and Race at 4, and Brunk at 5. I think it simply gives you more options, and allows your best best player to flex. I really don't care about using a 7ft guy. Brunk was 6-11 anyway lol. But it's less about using a 6-11 guy at 5, and more about "not" using a 6-8/225lb guy at 5. I really don't care about size, I just want to win. But IMO Archie has done a disservice to TJD's potential NBA career due to the way he's been used.

    Galloway got 6th man minutes (tied with Hunter). Leal and Lander were close to each other in minutes as 8th/9th. IMO, Galloway is going to continue to get minutes just because of hustle. He's got to improve his 3 ball though. And as long as Leal can shoot, he'll get quality minutes.

    I only view Brunk and Duncomb as true 5s. I know TJD is our 5 due to pure skill, but he'll never translate to an NBA 5. If he can find a 10-15 foot shot, I can see him having a chance in the league at 4. If Race is playing 5 for us for any duration other than spot duty, I don't like our chances (inside O or D). I think he's a 4 that needs to improve his shot.

    Do you really see Race as the #2/backup 5 if Brunk was still here?

    No reason not to want him back given he costs zero. I like seeing Fife toss himself under the bus, instead of taking what could have been a compliment.

    I know things are a bit funky so I looked at the roster and scholarship chart https://www.insidethehall.com/indiana-scholarship-numbers/ https://iuhoosiers.com/sports/mens-basketball/roster In short, everyone has at least 2 years of eligibility.

    So we have what, 2 scholarships available now? And zero Seniors?

    Player decisions

    IDK, but I hate to lose Brunk. I just don't see Race having the size to really play the in/5 for any duration. Sure, spot duty would be fine, but if TJD were to get hurt, or early foul trouble, we'd be hurtin' for certain. Race IMO needs to stick at 4 and develop a shot. Hoping we can pick up a more natural 5 in the portal, or at least a bigger/stretch 4/5.

    Woodson's scheme(s)??

    Hope you guys are right on Race. Just looking at his FT and 3 %, he's got work to do. He's a hard worker, so I don't doubt he could take a step forward. I also think it's possible a change in coaching and scheme will give him (and most) a boost. I absolutely think Leal will be in the rotation at wing. Assuming Lander and Phin are manning the 1, Johnson and Parker are probably the starters at the wings, but Leal and Galloway will get plenty of time.

    Yup. Even the Indystar tossed his name out (the only name they used) today when talking about likely assistants. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/college/indiana/2021/04/09/indiana-basketball-recruiting-hoosiers-mike-woodson-coaching-staff/7160914002/
