TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The ISU basketball team has been practicing and preparing for the game against Syracuse all week.
Another way they've prepared is watching lots of tapes.
The staff watched hours of film from previous Syracuse games this season. It's a very different kind of game to prepare for. The orange play a famous 2-3 zone that is different from the man-to-man defense played by most teams.
Coach Lansing's father taught him the benefits of watching tape, and Lansing wants to watch as much as he can to make sure he knows everything about their opponent.
"I want to know what they're doing on time-outs in the last ten seconds of possession. What they do in certain situations against certain things. You can never be too prepared or watch too much tape," Indiana State University Coach Greg Lansing said.
