On Tuesday night, Indiana turned in an intense and physical performance, and certainly played their best defensive game of the season. But a sputtering offense fell one score short in a crushing home loss to Purdue. After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show. On the mics: Jerod, Andy, and Ryan Among the topics discussed: — Romeo Langford's terrific overall performance, and why his missed minutes to start the second half were crucial. — Why the offensive struggles in this game fall squarely on the coaching. — Archie stressed the need for "drastic changes" after the Minnesota game ... did we see them? — The outstanding defense of Al Durham, who harassed Carsen Edwards into one of his worst nights of the season. — How De'Ron Davis took over the game at a key point in the second half. — Why Juwan Morgan took a few too many 3's and didn't get enough good looks in the post. — How Indiana, again and again, seems to be on the wrong side of the tough shots and bouncing balls during this losing streak. — A few words about the erroneous narrative that the packline defense doesn't defend 3-pointers well. We also point out a few meaningful moments you may have missed, go inside the numbers, and hand out our game balls. All of that, and more, on this edition of The Assembly Call. NEED IU GEAR?
