Class of '66 Old Fart

IUWBB vs Ohio State - 2/16/20 @ 2:00

Recommended Posts

Since I'm (just barely) on a 2-game winning streak starting IUWBB game threads, I'll try my luck again.  Buckeyes (15-9) (8-5) are on a 4-game winning streak and we've not played our best ball the last couple of games.  That kind of effort won't get us a 'W' tomorrow.  Need all hands on deck and a lot more bench help than we got at Illinois.  Tomorrow's game is National Girl and Women in Sports Day / Alumni Day.

No. 20 Indiana returns home to host the Ohio State Buckeyes on Sunday afternoon. Tipoff for National Girls and Women in Sports Day is at 2 p.m. ET.

Hoosiers leading 20-19 at the end of the 1st Q.

Points:  Gulbe 5; Berger 4          Our top 7 players have all scored at least 2 points so we’ve already gotten more bench production than we did the entire Illinois game.

Rebounds:  Patberg 2; Gulbe 2; Penn 2; Berger 2

Assists:  Patberg 4  

A pleasant change that we only have 2 TO.

OSU relies on 3-point shooting and in the first quarter they were 4-7.

Starting to become a commonly recurring theme IU running out of steam and getting no contributions from our bench. Not a lot that can be done about it this far into the season so just gotta roll with it and hope they can get some rest before the tourney and be able to ride the starters for two games a weekend.
