IU 84 Tennessee State 72

Eric Gordon is quite possibly the most talented freshmen at Indiana since Isiah Thomas. I did not say he was the next Thomas, but that he is the most talented frosh since Zeke. He is leading the team and the Big 10 in scoring, and I am thrilled that he is not in gross Illini orange.

– UPDATE – 12/4/07

My beloved Hoosiers remained perfect at Assembly Hall under the leadership of Coach Verizon by dispatching the titans of Tennessee State by the score of 84-72. (I have grown weary of the cupcakes on this team’s schedule. Thus far IU has played two quality oppenents – Xavier and SIU – and they are 1-1 in those match-ups. This weekend’s clash with their southern rival will be the last solid program faced by IU until the Big 10 schedule begins in ’08.)

IU nation held its collevtive breath last evening when Eric Gordon had to leave the game because of a bruised tailbone. Sampson wisely held him from the remainder of the contest and he should be fit for the UK game. The positive to be taken from Gordon’s absence was DJ’s dominating presence. H had one of the best game’s of his career; albeit against Tennessee State. Hopefully DJ will have a repeat performance on Saturday, and EJ will look like he has for most of this young season.

Since the IU – UK game will be played at home, I predict that IU will win 75 – 65.

    I liked the dunk against Georgia Tech, saw it on ESPN 360 online. I’m a Hoosier still at heart. The one step tomahawk from the wing to the baseline. That’s right, one step.
