On Saturday afternoon, in front of a large and raucous crowd, Indiana avenged its early-season loss to Arkansas thanks to another big game from Devonte Green, a solid effort on both ends from Rob Phinisee, and a huge boost from the bench.
After the game, our crew broke it all down on The Assembly Call IU Postgame Show.
On the mics: Jerod and Ryan
Among the topics discussed:
— How Devonte Green compensated for a few bad turnovers and shots with one of the most complete games of his career, and yet another in his encouraging late-season surge.
— The importance of De'Ron Davis responding to Archie's challenge and leading a strong bench effort.
— Rob Phinisee's understated by enormously impactful day on both ends of the court.
— Why Al Durham played well even if he didn't shoot well.
— Another rough outing for Justin Smith, who could not get going on either end.
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.
