Ok, sometimes I get the impression people just look for the negative and then pull up a box score to look for what they think they can critique.    Complaints about shooting?  Let’s see, Hunt

A lot of good comments in this thread so far...I had just a couple of thoughts... Hunter I thought looked great. His defense was much improved and that will get him more minutes. Confident stroke

Some of you are way too reactionary. Go Zoom call your loved ones, be thankful for your health, and that we have IU basketball back.  There was a lot of good things, but still some bad. It was Ga

No crowd=Will take some getting used to.

Trayce=Dominate.

Galloway=Intriguing.

Take away=No idea....ate a cupcake.

Good to see the frosh get some solid time on the court. We jump straight into real competition after this, so getting so guys on the court and the first time jitters out was important, even if they didn't make a huge impact. The free throw and three points shooting looked a little too similar to previous years, but overall I like the overall make up of this team and I'm interested to see how we respond to Providence on Monday.

I've kind of just accepted that we're never going to be a good shooting team under Archie Miller. I know it's one game, but he won't be here more than 2 seasons if we don't improve in those areas. 

The thing is it is not Archie because his last few Dayton teams shot well.

Gotta love these freshman. Refreshing seeing guys that can play fast via IQ. All played well and saw good teammates in timeouts. Critically speaking, Galloway needs to work on playing laterally.

 

Wasn't pleased with anyone else, maybe outside of Rob, but even he could work on controlling tempo.

TJD- free throws 

Race- no offensive game other than being more athletic 

Armaan - poor off the ball play and underwhelming effort/high motor tbh 

Al- same ol Al: Points-off-transition-Al. Nothing much has changed. Had astonishingly poor footwork off the ball, in-route to his first shot. Not quick with the ball (poor IQ). 
 

Jerome- okay, so you’ve worked on your turnaround. Where’s the explosion though?
 

Guys, I really hate to say it, I was very optimistic, but we are bottom half of B1G again

I think Geronimo is more raw than I had hoped. Not surprised, but from what some people have said. Impressed by trey. He was hustling. 8 turnovers total was good to see. I feel like this team played less erratic than previous years. Maybe the Devonte effect. Overall about what I expected. A lot to like, but a lot to get better at.  Shooting and FT still a sore spot.

Yu got that from one game SMH it never fails that you will always have negative people on any message board.

I saw lots to work on...but it was game 1...everybody I watched today looked rough for stretches.

Jerome had never been explosive. He is not an ubber athlete like Jordan. 

Him around the basket tonight is always what I thought Justin Smith should’ve/could’ve been.  Smith was so athletic and really a mismatch for anyone in the post.    Not sure if it was schematics last year or what.

Al had a decent all around game but he seems do a lot of his damage once the game has been decided. I don't see him making the pressure baskets.

He’s the guy I want in the free throw line at the end of the game, but other than that, not sure.

Will Rob and Lander be playing together?   I realize they are both primary PGs, but those two along with Trey look like the three best guards. 
 

Franklin will be solid off the bench. 
 

Not sold on Al as a top 3 guard.  I prefer him off the bench. 

I think Archie is worried about having shooting out there. If he is starting Trayce and Race then he needs a shooter (Al is our best spot up shooter). I was surprised Armaan started...thought it would be Rob, Al, Lander. Lander is not a pure shooter so I think Archie wants to balance the guards. I did like the pace and ball movement when both Khristian and Rob was playing together.

I looked at Archie's Dayton teams and the worse they shot was 34.5 and the best was 39.5.  So it is not like his Dayton teams were horrible 3 point shooting teams.

I remember he hit a 3 with a little over a minute to go to put us up for good against MSU
