On Saturday afternoon, Indiana was outscored by 30 points on 3-pointers by Minnesota en route to a lifeless 21-point loss that didn’t even feel that close. After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.
On the mics: Jerod, Ryan, and Chad
Among the topics discussed:
— Why Race Thompson’s brief but productive appearance was the one bright spot on an otherwise gloomy afternoon.
— Who is to blame for Romeo only getting six shots?
— Where the game turned in the first half — and why it was indicative of a recurring Indiana problem.
— Why the 3-point discrepancy tells the story of this game, and not just because one team made shots and the other one didn’t.
— Archie’s postgame comment that at least offers some hope that something will change moving forward.
— Why Al Durham didn’t play well today, but at least showed the kind of fight in the face of adversity that you want to see.
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.
