Just like the IU-Northwest game, IU-East is simply the final tuneup that counts. IUPUI will win by a bunch, but there is plenty to work on in the process. Let's take a look.
Keys to the Game
1) Hit Threes.
0-8 hurts. Make a ton, run up the score, watch the ball go in. You'll get plenty of open looks, don't ruin them.
2) Hit High Percentage Shots.
The big guys who aren't good superhoop shooters need to attack the basket and rack up points in the paint. IU-East will come in undersized and wide-eyed. Exploit the size difference. Score a ton.
3) Score A Ton.
I want to see IUPUI put up 80-90 points tonight. They need it to build confidence going into two games against Summit League teams and two tough games in Ohio. I want the score to be 100-20.
4) 50% FG; 80% FT; 40% 3P.
