Not much different than a year ago.

Offense looks fantastic at times. They can shoot the ball and Bryant is a really skilled big kid…obviously on the NBA radar after this season because of his combo of size and ball skills. However, he’s not (yet, at least) making much of a difference defensively or on the glass. Wake is KILLING them at the rim. Grabbing offensive rebounds at will, and taking people off the dribble with impunity.

Bottom line is this…my opinion is unchanged from the preseason: if IU can’t tighten it up defensively, they won’t win the Big Ten and their March potential is capped severely.
