Indiana Basketball Pack Line Defense Improving


The 2017-2018 season for Indiana basketball couldn't have gotten off to a much worse start. They allowed 90 points at home to Indiana State in Archie Miller's first career game as head coach. But ever since that game they've improved on defense. The players have bought into Miller's pack line defensive scheme and it's showed. In the first 15 games of the season, Indiana went 8-7 against predominately non-conference opponents while allowing over 72 points per game. Over the last 13 games against all Big Ten teams they've gone 8-5 and allowed under 67 points per game. The team has bought into the pack line defense and the biggest piece of improvement has been ball pressure. From the start of the season to now Indiana has pressured the ball more intently every single game leading to defensive stops for the Hoosiers.
