The Indiana basketball program has wrapped up its 2019-20 regular season and there were many highs and lows, and a lot to takeaway.

The regular season is officially over for the Indiana basketball program and postseason play is about to begin. For the Hoosiers, that means two things. One, do their job and they will make it in the NCAA Tournament. Two, repeat step one.

Indiana has one of the most lopsided resumes in college basketball, but also one of the better ones. With five ranked wins and nine quad one and two wins, and zero ‘bad losses’ or losses against teams over 45 in the NET rankings. Winning away from home is a different story.

Archie Miller has developed a much better flow with his rotation as the year has gone on, but still, it’s the inconsistencies of the majority of the team that continues to cause headaches for many fans.

One game Indiana looks like a Sweet 16 team, while another the Hoosiers look as if they are one of the worst teams in the Big Ten. There seems to be very little in between.

The good thing with that is they can be a very streaky team and a team that opponents wouldn’t want to face come the NCAA Tournament.

Throughout the season you could see the clear development that the program was making under Archie Miller, and while still not taking the ‘next step’ that many people wanted this season, it was a necessary step that the Hoosiers have taken thus far.

With just the Big Ten Tournament left to seal their fate in March Madness, here are the five biggest takeaways from Indiana’s regular season.
