TheHoosier.com's Jordan Wells and Stu Jackson wrapup action from the weekend's semi-state games, including the latest on New Albany senior five-star guard Romeo Langford, Culver Academies sophomore four-star guard Trey Galloway and more.
Scott and Galen finally get a chance to reflect on the Hoosiers' abrupt ending to the 2017-18 season. Galen gives his eyewitness account from having been in Madison Square Garden, and we both chat about the tenor of the game and how surprising the outcome was. We then talk about the graduating seniors, and ponder the legacies that each one either leaves behind or represents. We then look forward to the offseason and to next season, ponder the Romeo Langford situation, evaluate the roster as it currently sits, and regret the impending lack of basketball talk.
Host Stu Jackson is joined by BTN Basketball Analyst Jon Crispin to discuss Indiana's first season under head coach Archie Miller, where he felt like IU improved the most under Miller, who has the potential to be the biggest breakout player for IU next season and more.
With the end of the regular season upon us, the guys take a look back at a disappointing final week, recapping the losses to Nebraska and Ohio State. Following that, the analysis turns to the recently finalized Big Ten Tournament bracket, and the implications for IU's potential path to a postseason berth. We talk about the necessity of dispatching the first opponent, and then the possibilities of knocking off Purdue in aquarterfinal. We also talk about what it would take for the Hoosiers to secure an NIT bid, as well as the fallout from the NCAA/FBI scandal and how (or if) it might affect IU basketball past, present, or future.
Host Stu Jackson is joined by Bloomington Herald-Times IU beat writer Mike Miller to discuss the Hoosiers' outlook heading into the Big Ten tournament, including who needs to play well for them and what it's going to take for them to take to the weekend of the tournament.
TheHoosier.com's Jordan Wells is joined by Rivals contributor David Sisk to talk the latest in New Albany five-star Romeo Langford's recruitment, plus what he's seen from both the Hoosiers and Vanderbilt this season on the court.
Galen and Scott are back to recap the week that was in IU basketball, breaking down the victories over Illinois and Iowa. We look ahead to the Nebraska and Ohio State contests --- does IU have a chance in either game? How about both games?
We also talk about postseason scenarios, laying out the farfetched path IU would need to take to make their way to the NCAA Tournament, and the far more reasonable path to the NIT. Finally, we throw some Romeo Langford talk into the mix, and look ahead to the potential 2018-19 nonconference schedule.
There were a lot of angry tweets and accusatory message board posts after Wednesday's home game versus Illinois, and all the negativity was directed at the student section, which had some notable holes in it. This wasn't the first time in the last few years that we've seen attendance issues, so the big question is --- what's the deal? Is this a huge issue? What is causing IU students to not fill the gaps in the stands as everyone had grown accustomed to them doing over the years?
To try to answer these questions, we brought on our good friend Chronic Hoosier to have a detailed discussion about the history of the IU student ticket allotment, the changing nature of the fan experience in Assembly Hall over the years, the current factors affecting student attendance, and the long term prognosis.
