On this edition of CrimsonCast, we take a look back at a tough week for IU basketball, as the Hoosiers fell at home to Eastern Washington, struggled in the second half against UNC Greensboro, and searched for a defensive identity. We talk about the problems that the IU defense is experiencing, including the poor performance inside the 3 point line, and what that might mean against upcoming opponents.
We also preview next week’s Pittsburgh game in the ACC – Big 10 challenge. Originally a game that did not look particularly challenging, the matchup is now a bit of a concern, and we talk about some of Pitt’s statistical profile and what it might mean coming into the contest on Tuesday. We also take some time talking about early-season NCAA tournament ramifications from wins and losses, and how those might affect the Hoosiers in March.
