The Hoosiers earn a much needed win behind an incredible three-point shooting performance of senior Devonte Green. Top performers against Iowa also included Race Thompson who scored a career high ten points; however, he impacted the game in many more ways than just IU’s point total. His plus/minus metric reflected that.
Here are the top lineups for Indiana against Iowa on February 13, 2020.
Notes from the Lineup Report
- Joey Brunk played a season-low 9:40 in Thursday’s game. The matchup was tough for Brunk, but the junior center’s production has declined in recent weeks. He hasn’t scored in double figures since Jan. 23 vs. Michigan State and has three or fewer rebounds in four of his last five games.
- Only one of the 17 unique lineup combinations came after halftime on Thursday night. In other words, Archie Miller knew which combinations he liked early against Iowa, and he used them the rest of the game. The group of 5 that played in the 2nd half, but not in the 1st, was the combo of Phinisee, Green, Durham, Smith, and Thompson, who played just six seconds at the end of the game.
- The lineup of Phinisee, Green, Smith, Thompson, and Jackson-Davis played 8:43 last night, the 2nd-most of any group after the starters. This combo went +7 on Thursday night. Before the Iowa game, this group had only played 4:47 all season.
