    (2019) PF Trayce Jackson-Davis to INDIANA

    I remember thinking at the time that his commitment was going to be more valuable than Romeo's. It hasn't been easy, but it looks like Trayce has a chance to play for a special team this year. I think if he can lead IU to a B1G title at minimum, we are looking at him as one of the best in this program.
  2. I think this is going to be a very good game regardless of health. Bacot and TJD are going to give it all they can My keys: 1) Stop them from scoring in transition. I remember watching Davis/Love just kill teams last year in the tournament. 2) Bench mob be ready! I said it earlier, if Malik, Tamar, and JG all have an average typical game, I don't see how UNC wins. They really only go a few deep. Puff is the only one that has impressed so far. I'll be a little disapointed if UNC wins. Tells me Indiana wasn't ready to play. They have a huge advantage: Home court (IU fans and even players have waited a looooooong time for a game like this), UNC playing 3 games in 4 days (travel, 4 OTs..may not matter but IU has had more rest). I think Indiana is a superior defensive team. Deeper as well.
  3. Wow..I didn't realize it was this long but the last time IU was ranked and played another ranked team at Assembly Hall was Wisconsin in January 2017...Almost 6 years. Biggest game at Assembly Hall since the last UNC game.

    College Bball Thread

    What a dumpster fire Louisville is..I think Kenny Payne so far is what the College hoops "experts" thought Mike Woodson was going to be.
  5. Saw Hoosiers are a -6.5 favorite. Sounds about right.

    Basketball ticket info.....

    I got new seats...section A row 23. I guess the seller had issues with the bar code. Stub hub just like me upgrade for free. I'll take it!
  7. Yeah no way he misses what is one of the biggest IU games of his career. I just hope this is something that doesn't get worse over time. Might be a solid idea to sit him against Nebraska if needed...again, not ideal but of the next 5 games that one is the least challenging.
  8. Mine is Syracuse lol...but yes, UNC just dominated that game. I don't think IU played bad. UNC was just better. Back to back years they made the title game. I feel like the 2012/2016 teams had a bad draw...in 2012 they got UK and 2016 UNC.

    We will see. Guy I talked to today was helpful. Not sure if it's on them or the seller. Hope it's an IU win. Normally I go see IU play non-conference games. Saw my first Big Ten game at Assembly Hall last year against Wisconsin. I want to see what it looks like when it's rocking for a big game.
  10. I don't blame you. I get it. I'm not on board that this is a National Title contender yet. I think IU is very good. One of the best teams in the B1G and a second weekend NCAA Tournament team. 3 point shooting concerns me a little still. I'm getting greedy but I'd really like for them to win two of the UNC, Arizona, and Kansas games. We will know more about this team on the afternoon of December 17 after the Kansas game. Overall if they go 3-2 in the next 5 games (need to win both B1G Games), I feel good.
  11. Yeah that is what I thought too. Woody sounded very confident last night about them all playing so I'm not too worried.
  12. At our first game I remember saying this. I was afraid he'd get into foul trouble. Thankfully they have a deep frontcourt. But next year? Something he needs to improve on. It's not fair after one game, I was just disapointed he didn't show up against Xavier.
  13. I agree with you. I hope Friday gave him some confidence. He and Jordan looked bad against Xavier. It's like a QB looking good against horrible teams but against a really good team he struggles. I just think if Tamar and Jordan have even an average game this IU team is going to be hard to beat. I think Jordan and Tamar scored a combined 20-30 points the last couple of games. Don't think they'll do that every time but we need more than 1 point from the two of them. If not for an All-American performance by Trayce and X they don't beat Xavier.
