Back and Forth We Go

By David Scott - January 20, 2007

HARTFORD - The game has slowed considerably from the ragged pace UConn tried to instill in the latter parts of the first half. UConn has lingered and lingered, bringing the game back to even, 56-56, with just over nine minutes left. Now, at the under-8:00 media timeout, IU leads, 60-58.

A pretty move dow low on Thabeet by DJ White gave the Hoosiers a two point advantage as he scored his 20th and 21st points of the game, after the Huskies had pulled even.

The rebounding edge, which was 10 at the half, has bumped up to 13 (32-19) in favor of the Huskies. Jeff Adrien has nine boards and Stanley Robinson has seven (and 15 points) for UConn.

The Hoosiers are 3 of 8 from 3-point land in the second half (missing their last four) and got an explosive start from Roderick Wilmont who has 10 second half points, including 2 of 4 from beyond the arc.

. . . Kelvin Sampson utilizes the mini-stools, placed at foul-line extended, for his timeouts. Calhoun prefers the bench.

. . . We're expecting this one to come down to the final minutes and we're also sensing more and more desparation on the Husky bench.
