Beyond the Arc: 3 takeaways from IU's loss to Rutgers |  Sports

BLOOMINGTON – Three takeaways from Indiana’s 74-70 loss to Rutgers at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall:

• It was another game where Trayce Jackson-Davis, a 6-foot-9-inch IU second-year forward, could have taken advantage of the distance from the basket against taller man, 6-11 center Myles Johnson. Jackson-Davis had an effective practice against Johnson at the elbow where he faced, beat him in dribbling and converted for a three-point play. Jackson-Davis should have faced the basket more and posted less.

• UI coach Archie Miller should have made a foul to try to extend game rather than playing possession 73-70 with 47.8 seconds left. Rutgers are a sad free throw team (55.2% game), and there was still time to trade two for one. Instead, IU took full defensive possession, Johnson came up with a big offensive rebound and Rutgers guard Geo Baker was able to close it off by making one of two free throws with 8.7 seconds left.

• Jerome Hunter, a sophomore at IU, had a strong first half with nine points but couldn’t carry it over to the second half. During a second-half streak, Hunter missed a pair of free throws, then forced a roll, but was unable to complete a transition layup. Indiana is going to need Hunter’s continued production with Trey Galloway with a back injury.
