On Sunday night, we rewatched the 1992 Round of 32 game between Indiana and LSU. Shaq was the most dominant player on the court, but Indiana was by far the better team. Calbert Cheaney led the way, the rest of the frontcourt made shot after shot, and Damon Bailey hit two huge second half 3s.
After the rewatch, our crew broke down the game in detail.
On the mics: Coach, Ryan, and Scott from Crimson Cast
Among the topics discussed:
— Calbert Cheaney’s greatness.
— Indiana’s defensive strategy against Shaq, and why it was smart even though Shaq had a dominant statistical line.
— Indiana’s incredibly efficient offense.
— How Damon Bailey and Jamal Meeks stepped up during an off night for Greg Graham.
— What aged the best and worst in the 28 years since.
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.
