Then Scott is joined by his friend, neighbor and MSU grad Robert.  They discuss the possible match-up between IU and MSU, how IU was able to sweep MSU this season, look at the B1G bracket and finally discuss the ceiling and potential of B1G teams in the larger NCAA bracket this year.

CrimsonCast Ep 591 - Can they close?

March 4, 2019

CrimsonCast is back, recapping the second half of IU's season sweep over Michigan State and talking about Indiana's ability to finally persevere in a couple of tough games.

We also have an extended conversation about Indiana's opportunities and threats when facing Illinois and Rutgers in these final two games. There's also a fairly in-depth breakdown of the Hoosiers' current tournament chances and the scenarios they need to try and fulfill if they want things to work out for them. All that, plus listener comments/questions and a reminiscence on the day Calbert Cheaney broke the Big Ten scoring record.

We take a whole bunch of questions from Twitter and live chat, talking about everything from the problems with IU's offense to concerns with the roster to long-term prognoses for recovery. It's a long and winding conversation, and you'll probably find things in it that you both agree with and disagree with. Staff Talks IU Basketball Recruiting
