On Saturday, Indiana won yet another close game, coming back to beat Butler in the Crossroads Classic on a last-second shot by Big Shot Rob Phinisee. After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.
On the mics for this episode: Jerod and Ryan
Among the topics discussed:
— Marveling at Rob Phinisee making yet another clutch shot, and also assessing the importance of the big play Indiana had out of Archie Miller’s final timeout to go up 68-66.
— Another monster day for Juwan Morgan at the Crossroads Classic, which Indiana needed every ounce of.
— Romeo Langford’s up and down day, and why this is a really important game for him to learn from moving forward.
— Why Devonte Green’s play was probably better than many IU fans will want to give him credit for.
— Did Justin Smith shows more signs of growth today?
— Analyzing the rough days for Al Durham, De’Ron Davis, Evan Fitzner, and, to some extent, Zach McRoberts.
— Why this Indiana team needs to be able to lean on its ability to win close games, not rely on it.
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.
