I think their downfall was a.) their 3 point shooting wasn't a factor, b.) their defense didn't show up (or they were overmatched--could be either), c.) Zeller wasn't as aggressive or as involved in the 2nd half and d.) Kentucky was just sick from the charity stripe. 95% from the line with over 30 attempts? Ridiculous.
I have to agree with jmac. I honestly believe that if IU had played anyone else last night not named Kentucky, I think they would have won.
I agree with a lot of this analysis. A friend of mine said before the game that IU had played about 4 or 5 games all season that would beat the "average" Kentucky performance. I think they played another one last night. Unfortunately Kentucky just played well above it's exceptional average.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
