On Thursday night, Indiana faced what felt like a must-win game against the high-octane Iowa Hawkeyes, and the Hoosiers responded. Devonte Green lit Iowa up for seven 3-pointers, and Trayce Jackson-Davis showed that he has as much heart and hustle as he does talent and athleticism. After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.
On the mics: Jerod, Ryan, and Andy
Among the topics discussed:
— Why the timing of Devonte’s two 3-point barrages was so important.
— The power of Trayce and Race playing together. (With a little bit of De’Ron sprinkled in for good measure.)
— How Al Durham’s contributions transcended his statistical production.
— The good and bad for Rob Phinisee.
— The importance of Indiana’s perimeter defense, which kept the Hawkeyes’ outside shooting in check.
— And why the technical foul on Jerome Hunter was a bullcrap call.
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.
And we dedicate this show to Ed Campbell, a longtime IU fan who passed away earlier this week. Rest in peace, Ed.
