ISU in zone … not the kind they want
The canary was Evansville and the coal mine was Hulman Center on Wednesday. When a team as zone defense-aversive as Evansville — it was estimated after ISU’s 59-54 victory that the Purple Aces have employed a zone perhaps three times all season until Wednesday — uses it to keep the Sycamores’ offense from flowing, it’s a sure sign that ISU can expect to see zones from every opponent through to the end of the season.
