A tough loss by IU in the tourney (if they had hit their FTs, it would have been a different game), but that shouldn’t overshadow the amazing job DJ White did tonight. If the Hoosiers had only realized that you can’t play 1 on 5, they could have won. White owned the glass and fought for his points. This was one of the most memorable performances by a Hoosier in my lifetime. He played with real fire and pride.
Demond said to me this morning that 2 crappy days of games would lead to a great weekend, because the better seeds won, which meant for good basketball. Nice call, man. Today more than made up for a lousy Thusday.
