I looked at IU's 4 losses this year to analyze if there was any consistent cause for them.
We lost 4 games by 5 points or less. 1 Neutral court 2 on the road and 1 at home.
Vs Butler we were out rebound by 6 but had 6 fewer TO's - we shot 22 more FT but they shot and made twice as many 3's. Basically they shot and hit more 3's.
Vs Wisc we could not shoot. Yogi, Hulls, CWat, Victor, Will and Abel all were subpar.
Vs Illinois we made poor decsions down the stretch and gave away the lead.
Vs Minnesota we were out rebounded by 13 giving them too many extra possessions.
Vs OSU we were outrebounded again and had more TO's.
The only consistent factor was being out rebounded in 3 of the 5.
If we fix that vs Michigan we should win.
