Mike Woodson drops expletive while shooting down criticism of Trayce Jackon-Davis' play
Mike Woodson has no issues with the level of play he’s getting out of Trayce Jackson-Davis, and he had a response for those who might criticize the big man’s limitations.
This season, Jackson-Davis is averaging 20.2 points, 11.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists while leading the Hoosiers to a 9-5 record in the B1G. Indiana is also 8-1 in its last 9 games, including an upset of No. 1 Purdue in that stretch.
On Monday, Woodson addressed really the only criticism of Jackson-Davis’ game. That would be a lack of a consistent jump shot, but that doesn’t bother the head coach.
“Well, shit, he does everything else,” said Woodson while pointing out that Jackon-Davis is “playing at a high level.”
Another bit of gold from Mike Woodson’s Zoom this morning, on Trayce Jackson-Davis:
“Everybody talk about he doesn’t shoot jump shots. Well, shit, he does everything else. I mean, he’s playing at a high level, man.” #iubb

Before going on a tear, Indiana had lost 3 straight in B1G play. Over the current 9-game stretch, Jackson-Davis is averaging 24.2 points, 13.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 3.3 blocks with the Hoosiers turning things around and firing on all cylinders into the stretch run.
With 6 games left to play and trailing Purdue by 2 games in the conference standings, Indiana maintains an outside shot at a partial share of the B1G championship. We’ll see if the Hoosiers can close the game before postseason play.
