Class of '66 Old Fart

IUBB vs Penn State - 2/23/20 @ Noon

Recommended Posts

I couldn't find that a thread had been started but if it has, mods can just delete this one.  Rabjohns tweeting Five-star point guard Khristian Lander, 2020 signee Anthony Leal, 2022 Braden Smith ('22 Westfield HS) headline the recruits planning to visit Indiana today.

And for trivia buffs, today is the anniversary  of the famous chair toss by The General - Feb. 23, 1985.

Indiana University is in its 120th season of competition in men's basketball and will play its lone home game in a stretch of 4 of 5 on the road when it hosts Penn State on Sunday. The Hoosiers are coming off a 68-56 win at Minnesota, while Penn State fell 62-56 at home to Illinois.  PSU won the first meeting between the two teams 64-49 on January 29.  The Hoosiers are tied for 4th in the country with 4 wins over nationally ranked teams (Florida State, Ohio State, Michigan State, Iowa).

Indiana Coach Archie Miller is in his third season of guiding the Cream and Crimson.  He is 191-102 in eight-plus years as a head coach, which includes six years at the University of Dayton.  His Flyer teams made NCAA Tournament appearances in each of his last four seasons, including a trip to the Elite Eight in 2014.  He is 52-40 at IU.  Pat Chambers is in his 9th year and is 147-146 with the Nittany Lions.

Freshman Trayce Jackson-Davis has been named Big Ten Freshman of the Week four times this season and is coming off a career-high 27-point, 16 rebound performance at Minnesota.  His 16 rebounds were the most by an IU freshman since Jarred Jeffries had 17 against Penn State in 2001.  He is averaging a team-best 14.0 points and 8.0 rebounds.  He is just one of four freshman nationally (Vernon Carey, Jr. - Duke, Zeke Nnaji - Arizona and Isiah Stewart - Washington) to lead his team in scoring, rebounds, field goal percentage, free throws made and free throws attempted and blocked shots.  In the Big Ten, Jackson-Davis is the top freshman scorer overall and in conference games (13.4).  He also leads in overall and conference play in field goal percentage (60.1 and 55.8), blocked shots (1.9 and 1.9), free throws made (105 and 57) and attempts (149 and 80).  He is second overall and in league games in rebounding (8.0 and 7.6).  He is 10th in the B1G in scoring, 9th in rebounding, 2nd in field goal percentage and 6th in blocked shots.

Redshirt sophomore and Minnesota native Race Thompson played a career-high 25 minutes against Minnesota and had 9 points and a career-best 10 rebounds.  Senior Devonte Green is averaging 10.7 ppg., and leads the team in 3FG% at 38.5%.  He had 11 against Minnesota and has made 11 3's in his last 3 games.  Senior De'Ron Davis tied a school record by making all 9 of his field goal attempts against Michigan (Will Sheehey, 2013 vs. Purdue). 

Junior Aljami Durham tied his season-best effort in scoring in Big Ten play  (Wisconsin) with 17 points at Michigan.  Sophomore Rob Phinisee is shooting 37.3% from long range and leads the team with 63 assists.  Junior Justin Smith is averaging 10.8 points and leads the Hoosiers with 26 steals.

For the 3rd time this season, IU rallied from a 10-point deficit to win a game (UConn, Northwestern, Minnesota). IU posted its best defensive effort in B1G play holding the Gophers to 56 points on 34.4% shooting from the field and a 16.0% effort from long distance.   The Hoosiers have shot a B1G high 607 free throws. IU is shooting 40.0% from 3FG-range in last 5 games.
