[489] IU-Iowa Postgame Show: Hoosiers Play Well, Shoot Poorly, Lose Again
On Friday night, Indiana brought the same intensity and togetherness to Iowa City that they had Tuesday night against Purdue. Unfortunately, the Hoosiers also brought the same shooting and late-game offensive execution; and thus the final result was the same. After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.On the mics: Jerod and RyanAmong the topics discussed:— The play that gave Indiana a six-point lead late ... and what went wrong thereafter for the final result to be a loss.— Why the late-game officiating actually mattered in this one.— Rob Phinisee's strong performance, and why his absence in overtime may have cost Indiana the game.— What Indiana should have done differently on offense late to get better shots.— Indiana's excellent 3-point defense all night long ... even on most of those crazy Jordan Bohannon shots late.— The importance of Evan Fitzner and Race Thompson in giving Indiana a chance to win.We also point out a few meaningful moments you may have missed, go inside the numbers, and hand out our game balls. All of that, and more, on this edition of The Assembly Call.NEED IU GEAR?You will find the comfiest and most unique IU apparel at http://homefieldApparel.com, the new collegiate sports brand developed by our friends and long-time sponsors at Hoosier Proud.And at http://hoosierproud.com, you will still find the best state-of-Indiana-themed apparel, plus our official Assembly Call logo t-shirts, while sending 10% of your purchase to causes around Indiana like Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis.Use the promo code ASSEMBLY at checkout at either site to get 15% off your first purchase.

[487] IU-Purdue Postgame Show: Drastic Change in Effort But Same Crushing Final Result
On Tuesday night, Indiana turned in an intense and physical performance, and certainly played their best defensive game of the season. But a sputtering offense fell one score short in a crushing home loss to Purdue. After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.On the mics: Jerod, Andy, and RyanAmong the topics discussed:— Romeo Langford's terrific overall performance, and why his missed minutes to start the second half were crucial.— Why the offensive struggles in this game fall squarely on the coaching.— Archie stressed the need for "drastic changes" after the Minnesota game ... did we see them?— The outstanding defense of Al Durham, who harassed Carsen Edwards into one of his worst nights of the season.— How De'Ron Davis took over the game at a key point in the second half.— Why Juwan Morgan took a few too many 3's and didn't get enough good looks in the post.— How Indiana, again and again, seems to be on the wrong side of the tough shots and bouncing balls during this losing streak.— A few words about the erroneous narrative that the packline defense doesn't defend 3-pointers well.We also point out a few meaningful moments you may have missed, go inside the numbers, and hand out our game balls. All of that, and more, on this edition of The Assembly Call.NEED IU GEAR?You will find the comfiest and most unique IU apparel at http://homefieldApparel.com, the new collegiate sports brand developed by our friends and long-time sponsors at Hoosier Proud.And at http://hoosierproud.com, you will still find the best state-of-Indiana-themed apparel, plus our official Assembly Call logo t-shirts, while sending 10% of your purchase to causes around Indiana like Habitat for Humanity of Greater Indianapolis.Use the promo code ASSEMBLY at checkout at either site to get 15% off your first purchase.
