My Two Cents: Another Big Day For Jackson-Davis, So Appreciate It More

Indiana forward Trayce Jackson-Davis had 18 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and five blocks in the 63-45 win over No. 18 Wisconsin, something that's only been done twice

before by a Big Ten player against a ranked team. He's had many memorable moments this year and throughout his career, but still gets ripped constantly by some IU fans, which is

completely ridiculous. BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Wisconsin center Steven Crowl couldn't defend Indiana's Trayce Jackson-Davis on Saturday, but he's not alone. Lots of people can't

defend the 6-foot-9 senior from Greenwood, Ind. I can. Been doing it a lot lately, in fact, and have been for a long time. This has been a rough couple of weeks around

Indiana's basketball program. The Hoosiers lost their first three games of the new year, and looked bad doing it at times. Some of the Indiana fan base, allegedly loyal, has been

brutal toward Indiana's players and coaches. The worst of the collection has made disparaging videos and social media posts, and some have even made threats and accusations. It's

been ugly — and completely uncalled for in a lot of instances. The Indiana fan base is much like an expensive aged bottle of red wine. It's all so, so good, and so wonderful

— except for that nasty sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Rot-gut horrible, and it tends to ruin all the good times.  This very small vocal minority is worth ignoring,

but it's just not easy. Several players had a hard time doing that last week, getting into verbal sparring matches with fans on social media platforms.
