The biggest knock on the Indiana Hoosiers(13-6, 3-3 Big Ten) was not a lack of talent but a lack of heart! These boyz play week in and week out like they’ve got nothin’ in their chest cavity but air. Well playas…on Wednesday night they showed up in State College, Pa. with the Cowardly Lion’s costume on and left with the courage of the King of the jungle. With less than 5 seconds left with the score tied at 75! James Blackmon Jr. took the inbounds pass and sprinted down the floor and knocked down the three to win it 78-75. All heart no chaser on that one playboy!
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Everybody and their baby’s momma were expectin’ IU to fold like some cheap lawn chairs at a ghetto cookout in the projects once Penn State (11-8, 3-3 Big Ten) tied the joint up with 5 seconds left. The Hoosiers took the lead just before the half and never relinquished it until the Nittany Loins’ Lamar Stevens knocked down two huge free throws with 5 seconds remainin’.
Boyz thought that IU would do what they typically do and go out like some suckas. However, somebody pulled the curtain back on the dull Wizard of Oz and revealed to them that they do, in fact, have some heart! They’ve just got to believe in themselves enough to make it happen when tested.
Blackmon Jr. knocks down the joint and boyz go to the crib with some confidence. He finished the night with 17 points along with both Thomas Bryant and Robert Johnson. OG Anunoby went down on the final play of the first half with a knee injury and didn’t return.
The Hoosiers need some boyz with some tougher names or at least nicknames bruh! They just don’t intimidate a boy showin’ up with Thomas. James and Robert! They need a LaQuell, Money G or Octavious! Throw in a DaQuan for good measure but Thomas, James and Robert sound like some cats in the Kelly School of Business takin’ final exams.
Now they’ve won two straight after blastin’ ole dull Rutgers after losin’ 5 of their last 8 bruh! Hopefully this win will give them the swag they need to win the games they SHOULD win from here on out. Their next 4 of 5 games are against middle of the road Big Ten teams that from a talent standpoint they should beat until they have to run up to No.17 Wisconsin on Feb. 5.
The Hoosiers just need to take it one at a time and stop tryin’ to do too much! Win the games that they should win and their confidence will be on level 10 by the time Wisconsin starts lookin’ for them. Stop me when I start lyin’!
