On Friday night at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, Indiana defeated UC-Davis 76-62 despite being in the lead for just over five minutes of game action.
While most of Indiana’s players struggled through frustrating ups and downs, Juwan Morgan was sensational … leading to the text that Andy sent Jerod midway through the first half that now serves as this episode’s title.
After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.
On the mics for this episode: Jerod and Coach.
Among the topics discussed:
— Why Indiana’s defense was the driving force behind their dominant finish to the game.
— The strong play of Juwan Morgan, who showed a terrific inside-outside game and was Indiana’s one consistent defender throughout then night.
— Romeo’s continued defensive struggles, and why even his easy 20 points can’t overshadow them.
— How Rob Phinisee battled through a rough start to still deliver a strong performance.
— The absolute zero (literally) that Indiana got from its bench.
— Should Juwan Morgan start asserting himself more at the beginning of games?
— Why turnovers are now officially a concern.
— The impact Al Durham’s emerging 3-point stroke can have on his offensive game … so long as he doesn’t forget what his bread-and-butter is.
And much more.
