On Tuesday night, Indiana took a double-digit lead in the second half, then saw Wisconsin erase it quickly, and ultimately survived through two overtimes — thanks to a number of timely buckets from Romeo Langford — to snap a five-game losing streak. After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.
On the mics: Jerod, Andy, and Ryan
Among the topics discussed:
— Why Romeo’s final bucket was exactly what we’ve all been wanting to see from him in clutch situations (and why, at times, that isn’t what occurs)
— The tremendous lift provided off the bench by Race Thompson
— The curious decision by Archie Miller to pull Rob, Romeo, and Juwan all off the court at the same time, which coincided with Wisconsin’s second-half run
— Questions about some of Indiana’s late-game offensive execution … but also some plaudits for the coaching staff for getting this season turned around post-Minnesota
— The understated but stellar night from Rob Phinisee
— What are we to make of this performance from Juwan Morgan?
And so much more.
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.
