Indiana University Basketball by the Numbers: A Comprehensive Look

Bleacher ReportCorrespondent IFebruary 27, 2010

A year removed from a 6-25 (1-17) record, the current squad isn't playing much better and doesn't look like they will improve on the 9-17 (3-12) record they currently hold.

And once again, they are at the bottom of the league in many statistical categories per bigten.org 's statistics.

Eight of them to be exact, including scoring defense, scoring margin, field goal percentage, field goal percentage defense, rebounding defense, assists, assist to turnover ratio, and defensive rebound percentage.

Indiana is also ranked in the bottom four in the conference in all 21 statistical rankings on the site, except for steals (third), offensive rebounds (second), and offensive rebound percentage (second).

The Hoosiers have actually done well on the offensive glass this season, bringing down 182 offensive rebounds, just two less than Michigan State, and recording 14 offensive boards in the blowout loss versus Wisconsin.

However, the rest of the statistics tell a lot of the story about why the Hoosiers are so bad this season, especially recently.

Indiana gives up on average 72.5 points per game, yet has only been scoring 59.7 points per game, good for an average losing margin of 12.7 points, five points worse than the 10th place team, Iowa.

In fact, during their nine game losing streak, Indiana has scored more than 60 points just three times, and no times in the last five games.

During this same span, opposing teams have scored on average 74.3 points per game, which against Indiana's 57.5 points per game, gives them an average margin of losing at 16.8 points.

In the last five games, that margin of losing has been an appalling 22.2 points, something that is unacceptable for coach Tom Crean, as well as the whole fan base.

Also in those five games Indiana has allowed opponents to shoot 53.7 percent from the field, while Indiana has shot 37.2 percent from the field.

In addition, Indiana hasn't scored more than 20 field goals in the five losses, leading to the huge point discrepancy.

Another point to note is how we are last in the league in assists, averaging just 10.4 per game, last in turnovers at 14.5 per game, and last in rebounds against, giving up on average 34.7 per game.

Those three statistics are keys to winning games or at the least giving your team a fighting chance to win games.

If Indiana can not dominate the boards, clean up the sloppy play, and play less selfishly, they will be in a better position to win.

Otherwise, it will be a long, long summer.
