Another team with no real size to deal with Trayce, Race, and Malik. I think this will be another chance for the 2nd team and a CJ and Kaleb to get some minutes...They've started to earn them...

So I don't know how bad TJD's back is (he had an icepack on it at the end of the Miami game), but I would think if it's any concern, that Malik, Geronimo, and even Banks might be in line for more minutes, not only against ALR, but Jackson State as well...

Be very cautious with him because we can still win those games without him. We need him ready for UNC more than anything but I hope he can play some in those games. Don't want to see him go 10 days between action.

I agree... Don't want him rusty, but I'd like to see him play 15 minutes or less in each

For sure! Let Reneau and Duncomb handle the 5 spot with most of the minutes. Would like to get some of the 2nd unit guys and then the 3rd unit a lot of run the next two games, get them more in an offensive flow.

Why would a college choose 'Trojan' as a mascot?  

I'd reverse that and say why don't descendants of Troy, historians, and colleges that use that nickname get together and ask that company to name it's product something appropriate like "Wasn'tMe" or "MyAlibi"? 😉

What kind of NIL opportunities do the players get?  

I don't know about other schools, but Purdue is probably out of that race...

It's nice to have enough depth that the first team can sit and rest the second half and we still beat the crap out of these lesser teams. 

Protects us from injury and is helpful for short turnarounds. 

Man it feels good to know we won't get blown off the floor by mid majors.

The Fort Wayne Mastodons beat Archie Miller's IU team by 20 points, 92 - 72, in Bloomington.

Fort Wayne bombed in 17 three-pointers over the pack line defense.

May these dark days never return.

FW was 7-13 from three in the first half. Then hit 10-17 in the second half. That is a stubborn coach. How you don't say at half-time, "OK, you guys have all played straight man before. Forget the pack line and chase them off the line.", is beyond belief.

I'll never forget we were so mad about losing to IPFW by two points in overtime on the road, that we fired that coach and brought in a guy to lose to the same team by 20 in Bloomington.
