COLUMBUS, Ohio — There was quiet inside Value City Arena. Quiet enough for the echo of IU’s coaching staff barking orders to be heard in the top-most row. Yet IU men’s basketball’s offense struggled in a fashion that has increasingly become the norm on the road.
As he sat at the press room table at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall, IU men’s basketball sophomore guard Rob Phinisee seemed unbothered. There were roughly 24 hours before his next game, which would tipoff at noon Saturday against Ohio State, and it had been just over a day since he was a part of IU’s worst offensive performance of the season.
IU men’s basketball’s offense struggled on the road once again as it was blown out by No. 24 Penn State on Wednesday, 64-49.
The Four Thorns are back, and there is a lot of drama to breakdown. Indiana Daily Student sports editor Grace Ybarra joins us this week as a special guest, and Dylan Wallace joins the podcast by phone from just outside University Park, Pennsylvania.
After what may have been IU men's basketball's toughest week in the nation's deepest conference, a third straight ranked team awaits. IU travels to play No. 24 Penn State at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.

After the toughest week of the season for IU basketball, the Indiana Daily Student's men's basketball beat reporters are back in the studio to analyze the Michigan State and Maryland games. But the focus of this week was the NCAA Tournament, and just how safely or not IU is in the field of 64.
There were boos as the IU men’s basketball players ran off the floor. Boos as No. 17 Maryland celebrated on the court. Boos as Maryland sophomore forward Jalen Smith slapped the IU logo at midcourt and head coach Mark Turgeon pulled his star away from taunting the IU crowd.
IU seemed ready to pass its biggest test of the season Sunday by bouncing back from its embarrassing Jan. 4 road loss to Maryland. It was seconds away from upsetting the very same team in Bloomington.
Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo held his hands on his hips as the roar pummeled down on him from the stands. As IU jumped out to a 14-point lead early in the first half, Izzo was rarely animated. It was no different when IU redshirt junior center Joey Brunk made a lay-up to put IU up by three with under a minute to go, or when freshman forward Trayce Jackson-Davis made a crucial block on the game's final possession.
Introducing the Four Thorns Podcast, where four sports reporters take on something that's, well, not sports: "the Bachelor."
It's a huge week for IU men's basketball as two ranked teams come into Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. IU will welcomes No. 11 Michigan State on Thursday night and No. 17 Maryland on Sunday afternoon.
Just past the midway point of IU head coach Archie Miller’s third season in Bloomington, a glaring hole still sits atop his own resume: He hasn’t brought IU to the NCAA Tournament. Not a single player on IU’s roster has been to the NCAA tournament before.
In a season where Big Ten teams have so mightily struggled on the road, IU men's basketball is one of a surpringsly large group of teams in the conference still looking for its first road win. IU is 0-3 on the road thus far in the 2019-20 season. The Hooiser are averaging losses of 15 point margins. They are scoring just 57.67 points per game.
Rutgers junior guard Geo Baker stared into the camera as he landed with just over two minutes left to play. He had just put IU redshirt junior center Joey Brunk on a poster, soaring over the big man as he reached back with the ball in his right hand before throwing it down for a powerful slam dunk. A sold-out Rutgers Athletic Center crowd chanted Baker’s name in a thunderous roar.
IU men's basketball (13-3, 3-2) is still looking for its first road win of the season as it travels to the sold out Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway, New Jersey to face a resurgent Rutgers (12-4, 3-2). The Hoosiers are coming off a resume-boosting victory over Ohio State on Saturday, entering Wednesday night's game against Rutgers with momentum.
If Big Ten play has taught fans anything this season, it’s that everything can change on any given day. Big Ten teams at home are 30-5 as of Monday.
Before the season began, IU men’s basketball head coach Archie Miller touted the depth of his team. He spoke about how his team didn’t have a go-to guy, but instead a variety of players who could have the hot hand on a given night.
On Nov. 26, the Indiana Daily Student published a story entitled “Competition aside, Archie Miller’s offense is finally clicking.”
After being blasted on the road against Maryland on Saturday, IU returns home to Assembly Hall Wednesday night to host Northwestern, the last place team in the Big Ten. The Wildcats are the only Big Ten team yet to win a conference game. Northwestern has the worst overall record in the conference at 5-8. In the midst of a stretch where IU is facing a ranked team with nearly every other matchup in a conference that has proven to be one of the deepest in the nation, this has quickly emerged as a must-win game for IU's NCAA Tournament hopes.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. — In times of frustration, IU head coach Archie Miller has tossed off his suit jacket at halftime. He paces up and down the sideline, walks down toward the center of the scorers table and yells out calls to his team on the opposite end. He kneels down, gets up, claps and yells all in a seemingly repetitive cycle.
