Film Room: Devonte Green Sparks Indiana Defense

Devonte Green led Indiana men’s basketball on defense Sunday against Northwestern. The Hoosiers played their best defense of the season holding the Wildcats to 46 points. IU forced 17 turnovers in the win and held the Wildcats to 26.8 percent shooting, a season low for Indiana opponents.

With big man De’Ron Davis out for the season, the Hoosiers have to play more “small ball”. That doesn’t seem to be a problem for Green.

Green recorded a season high five steals against the Wildcats plus many more deflections that don’t show up on the stat sheet. Check out how he’s able to matchup against bigger players on defense using his quick hands and defensive first mindset to force turnovers and spark the Hoosiers on this edition of film room.
