Watching it on BTN+. 6 hours left on my 1 month. One camera. Lol. Listening to jazz.

This is the exact opposite of the basketball game on BTN+. Here there’s one camera constantly keeping 1/2 of the field in frame. Nothing else. The camera in the basketball game probably had a broken zoom button by the time it ended.

How we playing?

Looks like they came in planning to play long balls over the BG back line. The grass is FAST and not allowing anyone to catch them.

IU offense keeps going long left.  Both goalies are not being successful with setting up offenses.  BG's goalie just kicks it out of bounds for IU throw in.  

IU has had more opportunities but we will see. Most came in the last 25 minutes.
