Some quick thoughts on losing 81-69 to Purdue:
How it happened: Indiana defense offered little resistance in the first 10 minutes in the Assembly Hall Boilermakers, with fiery off-round shooting strength leading 29-17, scoring 9:27 of the first half. An angry bowler, puzzled by the team’s performance, called out for time What Miller said during the timeout also had an impact. The Boilermakers scored just two points in the time of 7:08, while Indiana came in by two points in Race Thompson. However, the end of the second half was almost disastrous for the Hoosiers after IU was within 2 points at 33-31. Purdue pulled seven straight points to stretch the lead to ninth. Indiana responded with a 3-pointer by Jerome. Hunter and Layup, by Armaan Franklin, before time ran out in the second half, the Hoosiers entered the locker room with just four and felt lucky after a disastrous start.
Indiana kept everything close for the first seven minutes of the second half and pulled within a minute at 50-49 with the Armaan Franklin jumper at 1:12 p.m. Nordu began giving Trevion Williams to the post at the end of the lower-eight media timeout, Williams scored 10 points in the second half and the Boilermakers led 64-54, but even Purdue’s offense was slow. Down in the last seven minutes, Indiana’s offense was even more inappropriate. Archie Miller takes 67-56 behind with 5:22 and his team amid more than five minutes on the field dry, the Hoosiers will not come any closer than the rest of the six as Indiana dropped eighth overall. Go to Purdue, Archie Miller’s record with the Boilermakers is now 0-6, with 0-4 at the Assembly Hall.
