IU coach Tracy Smith wasn’t happy with his team Sunday night, to say the least.

After the Hoosiers’ last game at the Eagle Invitational, an 8-3 win against Le Moyne, Smith was brutally honest when discussing their performance.

“Right now we’re playing terribly on defense,” Smith said. “We gotta do a much better job of taking care of the baseball if we expect to win.”

IU (4-6) will get that opportunity for improvement when it faces Morehead State at 3 p.m. today. The Hoosiers will confront the Eagles at Sembower Field after ending a four-game losing streak Sunday. The game is only the second home contest of the season for IU, which lost its last game in Bloomington 10-6 against Eastern Michigan.

While the Hoosiers gained a win at the Eagle Invitational, Smith didn’t believe his team had done enough this weekend or this season, stating the team needs to be more assertive.

“It’s about hard work,” he said. “Hopefully they’ll wake up and see that they can’t just show up.”
