In his final sentence...

"Rutgers is on the skids again, losing three of four games and really struggling to shoot from the outside. They are just 18-for-81 from three in their last four games, just 22.2 percent. '

He kinda leaves out that in losing 3 of the last 4 those loses were @Iowa, @Michigan, and at home to a decent Maryland (who has the length to guard them) team with a win over Northwestern sandwiched in between...

Reminder gang. After the game tomorrow night BTN will be airing the never scene footage of The Big Trip. Documenting when Knight took IU players on trip around the world in summer of 1985.

Since rebounding will be difficult I suggest we don’t miss any shots and steal the ball a lot. 

Myles Johnson is one impressive kid. Graduated from the Rutgers electrical engineering school in 4 years as a D1 athlete...Magna Cum Laude... Way to go, young fella...

Well they were on a 5 game losing streak coming into our last game and we saw what happened in that game.

I'm aware...

Just saying 2 of those 3 loses were to top B1G teams...

The other one (vs Maryland) had Mathis and Young taking 24 shots (hit 9 of them 2-9 from 3) and Harper only taking 6 shots the whole game...That was one of the big issues in the 5 game losing streak you mentioned, although even then they were beaten by OSU, Wisconsin, and Iowa (along with MSU and PSU)...

The most important game in Archie Miller's IU coaching career.  

If it is I think it will be a nail in the coffin. We couldn't beat them at home and we sure as heck can't beat them on the road. Our guards (not Franklin) are terrible. I hope I am wrong but this team has no upside and Archie is not the coach I thought he would be.

i tend to agree, but we have almost been better on the road and rutgers is very unpredictable.

underdog Hoosiers pull together and escape with 3 point win as Hunter as step-in starter scores 20 and grabs 8 rebounds. 

Maybe.  I have noticed over the years in college basketball that when a team loses a key cog to an injury, they seem to play inspired that first game without him.

And that's the question in my mind right now...Sure, we'll be outmanned upfront...But what will be the mindset of the players? 

If we're collectively still thinking about the loss of one of our leaders, the road will be even tougher...

If Race is out, Jerome would seem to be the prime beneficiary. Love to see what he does with extended minutes.  Then Geronimo to back up both TJD and JH.
