Indiana assistant coach Tim Buckley addressed the team's rebounding troubles during Monday's Big Ten teleconference. Iowa outrebounded IU 39-23 in a 58-43 victory over the Hoosiers.
"Doing it in practice and continuing to do it like we have every day, the consistency of it showing up in games is very important in us being successful," Buckley said. "Winning the rebounding battle against a team like Minnesota, you have those successes to build off of. And then showing the guys, once they see it on film, they will notice that we were not as physical as we needed to be. There is a difference between just getting a body on somebody carving out space and keeping your feet moving, particularly against bigger and stronger guys.
"When your big guys are blocking out, then the guards have to go in and get the rebounds. We did not get enough of that (Sunday). That will be and continue to be a point of emphasis."
