[360] IU-Louisville Postgame Show: So Close...Again

12/9/2017
More
It was another hard-fought loss for Indiana in this one. The Hoosiers played well to start the game, but slowly started to fade from there. The lack of senior leadership down the stretch, mainly Robert Johnson's quiet afternoon, haunted Indiana's play. Guest host Galen Clavio and Ryan break it all down on the latest episode of Assembly Call.

On this week's edition of Assembly Call Radio, we break down Indiana's first three Big Ten games, answer any lingering questions that came out of those three games, and some X's and O's, including three point defense and feeding the post. Then, a little bit about the Curtis Jones transfer and, of course, answer your Twitter questions. And much more. All of that on this week's edition of Assembly Call Radio.

[358] IU-Iowa Postgame Show: Hoosiers Rally in 2nd Half for Runaway Win

12/4/2017
More
This was a game of major runs. Indiana went on a 19-6 run to end the first half, then Iowa countered with a 17-5 run to start the second half, and finally Indiana regained control and blew the game open with a 29-9 run to build a 77-55 lead before Iowa scored a few buckets to make the final score look more respectable. Juwan Morgan again led the way for Indiana, notching another double-double and saving his best play for the most crucial moments of the second half. The bench also came up...

[357] IU-MIchigan Postgame Show: A Learning Experience

12/2/2017
More
After a hard-fought battle with Duke on Wednesday, Indiana came out slow against Michigan. Bad shot selection and lackluster defense at times plagued the Hoosiers down the stretch. There were promising signs that arose during a second-half run that cut the lead to double digits, but ultimately it was an experience from which to learn for Indiana. Special guest Galen Clavio Ryan break it all down on this edition of The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.

On this week's edition of Assembly Call Radio, we discuss more of Indiana's loss to Duke, including a report from our student intern Michael Dugan, who was at the game, about the environment. Then, we talk about what we know for sure about this Indiana team, and what we have yet to learn. Plus, we answer your questions, including what is going on with Curtis Jones and Justin Smith.

[355] IU-Duke Postgame Show: 35 Damn Good Minutes

11/30/2017
More
Indiana played Duke, the #1 team in America (and one of the most talented in recent memory), to a draw through 35 minutes on Wednesday night. The score was 75-75, but from that point forward, Duke outscored the Hoosiers 16-6 to complete a 10-point victory. And while any loss, especially at home, is disappointing, there was plenty to be encouraged about in this IU performance. The Hoosiers have made quite a bit of progress over the last few weeks, while still having some glaring issues...

11/24/2017

It took six games, but the Indiana Hoosiers finally turned in their first consistent 40-minute performance on Friday afternoon in an impressive 87-67 victory over Eastern Michigan. -- Robert Johnson and Josh Newkirk led the way from a scoring perspective, combining for 35 points and a sterling 9-12 clip from downtown. -- Juwan Morgan was all over the place from an effort and energy perspective. -- Al Durham led an excellent ball-handling effort, as the freshman once again logged major...

[353] IU-Arkansas State Postgame Show: Juwan Morgan's Dominance Leads Hoosiers

11/22/2017
More
Indiana continues to struggle at the beginning of halves, but on Wednesday night their excellent play to close halves was the difference in a 17-point victory over Arkansas State. It was a game that showed, in spurts, how efficient this IU team can be when it limits turnovers and uses its defense to lead its offense. And, of course, it helps when you have a guy playing at a superstar level, and over the last two games Juwan Morgan has done exactly that. Against Arkansas State, Morgan had a...

[352] IU-South Florida Postgame Show: RoJo and Juwan Lead Strong 2nd Half Bounceback

11/19/2017
More
Despite a strong first couple of minutes, Indiana played a mostly uninspiring first half against South Florida -- with turnovers and atrocious defensive rebounding contributing to a one-point halftime lead for South Florida (one of the worst remaining teams on Indiana's non-conference schedule). Indiana's play was so bad at one point that Archie Miller threw a towel in frustration, earning the first technical foul for an Indiana coach since ... do you even remember when? And while the...

On this week’s edition of Assembly Call Radio, which features special guest host Brian Tonsoni (the official coach of The Assembly Call), we provide some perspective on Indiana’s tough opening week. We discuss some good, bad, and ugly stats, and also delve into a deep discussion about Robert Johnson’s early-season struggles. Plus, we answer your questions, including what a reasonable expectation is for Indiana’s record entering January, and who we’d have take the last shot right now.

[350] IU-Seton Hall Postgame Show: Solid First Half Disintegrates in Second

11/15/2017
More
For 20 minutes on Wednesday night, we caught a glimpse into the future. Indiana took a couple of powerful blows from a very good Seton Hall team and the Hoosiers punched right back, displaying the mental toughness, physical toughness, and execution that was so sorely lacking through the season's first 80 minutes. But unfortunately, it all unraveled in the second half as the careless turnovers and ineffective defense were back, and Seton Hall imposed their will to dominate and win going...

[349] IU-Howard Postgame Show: Freshmen Step Up as Indiana Escapes with Win

11/12/2017
More
Indiana defeated Howard -- the worst team on its schedule -- 86-77 on Sunday night in a game that was far closer than anyone predicted or hoped. The game featured yet another injury for Juwan Morgan, who appeared to sprain his ankle. Fortunately, Justin Smith was ready to take advantage of the extra minutes Morgan's injury provided. He, along with Al Durham and De'Ron Davis, made enough plays throughout the game to keep Howard at arm's length and give IU the W. On this episode of The...

11/10/2017

Indiana State came into Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall and dominated Indiana in the first game of the Archie Miller era, winning 90-69 in a game that barely even felt that close. We tried to make sense of this shocking loss on the latest edition of The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.

On this week's edition of Assembly Call Radio, we linger a bit on the first exhibition game, react to a few comments from Archie Miller's first weekly coach's show, and discuss the latest IU basketball headlines. Then we debut a new segment called "Secret Overreactions" in which we deliver some gut-level feelings we're having that we'd prefer to keep to ourselves ... but since, you know, we host a show, we don't have that luxury. After we reveal our deep, dark overreactions, we call each...

[344] IU-Marian Postgame Show: A Solid Beginning to the Archie Miller Era

10/29/2017

The Hoosiers finally hit the hardwood against an opponent other than themselves on Saturday night. Among the biggest takeaways from Archie Miller's first game as the head coach of Indiana were fewer turnovers and better team defense -- along with the stellar play of Devonte Green, and an up-and-down night for Robert Johnson. Oh, and did a player actually get held accountable for an egregious turnover? Why yes, yes he did. We give this important moment the celebration it deserves. All of...

On this week's edition of Assembly Call Radio, we discuss a number of topics. We begin by hitting on recruiting, of course, because it's been the hottest topic of the week. We discuss what we’re hearing about Romeo Langford and Darius Garland, and what it could all mean. Then we discuss the preseason KenPom rankings, which are now out. I crunched the numbers on how Indiana has fared recently against its preseason projections, and how Archie Miller’s Dayton teams fared. You won’t want to...
