IUBB GAME WATCH PARTY

Recommended Posts

If you want to understand IU b-ball, there are some games that need to be watched.

I’m gonna post a really good one now and then, from all eras.

To start? The single most dominant one game performance I’ve ever seen by an IU team. The 1981 Hoosiers, their way to a national championship, met the top 20 Maryland Terrapins in round two of the NCAA Tourney. The Terps has first team All-American Albert King, and future perennial NBA star Buck Williams. They jumped out to a 8-0 lead, and then Isiah, Ray, and Randy got extraordinary. An incredibly dominant performance. Enjoy:

Watched this game, the Louisiana State game and the North Carolina game earlier during the quarantine. 

That was a good team that really jelled at the right time and became a great team. I think they ended the season on a 10-game winning streak -- seems to have coincided with Landon Turner really picking up his play. The run through the NCAA was really something to see -- nobody could touch us (and it helped that the regional was in Bloomington). 

DePaul spent much of the season ranked No. 1 and was in our region. That was the year Saint Joseph's upset them, then we crushed Saint Joe's. I really wanted to play DePaul, because I think we'd have won by 15 points.

The 81 season was special. I was not yet a teen, but it's the year I really started IU BB and cheering along with my father. 87 though is still my favorite all time season. I remember the early win over KY, then the let down a few days later to Vandy. Then ran off 10ish wins including a very close one over Michigan, who had Rice and Grant, and a great O. Then got smacked down to earth by top ranked Iowa. We take revenge towards the end of the season over Iowa, but then lost 2 late season games including one to PU. 

That tourney run, especially the last 4 games vs Duke, LSU, UNLV, and Syracuse we're epic. Only 12pts of separation in those 4 games, and 2 one point wins. A few of those games certainly deserve to be on this list.

 This game is when I started to believe we were the best team in the country.

They put on a clinic against a very talented Maryland squad.

Okay guys...IT’S TIME FOR INSTALLMENT #2:

This is an IU vs Kentucky matchup at Assembly Hall ... no, not THAT one!

Under the category of how far we’ve come, this is the 2009 game: “the Maurice Creek game.”

UK had three lotto picks in their starting five and another on the bench. Pritchard guarded DeMarcus Cousins, Jeremiah Rivers guarded John Wall and VJ3 guarded Eric Bledsoe. Our bigs off the bench? Elston, Capo, Tijan and Bawa Muniru. Steven Gambles and Danny Moore got some run.

For the first half, Mo Creek was the best player on the floor for either team.
