Mike Woodson credits Indiana women's coaches for successful play used in Michigan game
Mike Woodson’s coaching staff isn’t shy about borrowing from some of its Indiana colleagues. During his weekly radio show, Woodson shared how the Hoosiers recently ran a successful play they first saw run by the IU women’s team and drawn up for Woodson’s assistants.
In fact, Woodson’s squad ran the play for the opening score in No. 18 Indiana’s 62-61 win at Michigan. Mason Williams shared a side-by-side view of how the play worked for each team. For the Hoosier men, it was a Trayce Jackson-Davis slam. He finished with 28 points and 11 rebounds in the B1G victory.
Cool story here. Mike Woodson said some of his coaching staff was at an IU women’s game and saw a play they liked. Later, a women’s coach drew the play up. Indiana ran it on the first play of the game against Michigan. The result? Trayce Jackson-Davis got a dunk. #iubb
