3. Winning On The Road

It’s the hardest thing to do in any sport, but if Indiana wants to make the leap from perennial bubble team to perennial contender, the Hoosiers have to learn how to win on the road.

Through Archie Miller’s first two-plus seasons, Indiana is 7-23 on the road, a winning percentage of just .233, and that’s nowhere near good enough, obviously.

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why the Hoosiers are this bad away from home, but it needs to change.

Throughout Miller’s tenure talent has been questioned, but the truth is Indiana has been pulling in solid recruits since his arrival, so blaming it all on a talent gap is ridiculous. Indiana has no problem knocking off some of the most talented teams in the country at home, so there can’t be a double-standard when it comes to the talent on the roster.

Coach Miller has pointed out that leadership and being vocal have been ongoing issues this entire season. It’s worth noting that these have been issues raised throughout the last three seasons as well.

Either Miller needs to bring in players that are naturally outspoken leaders, or he has to do a better job of leading himself because winning on the road takes leadership.
