  1. We may very well have roster deficiencies next year, but this is not a thread about that. Looks like we’re all but set for the coming season. For roster eligibility: Four bigs: DDavis, senior; JBrunk, junior; RThompson, sophomore; and TJDavis, freshman. Three wings: JSmith, junior; DAnderson, sophomore; and JHunter, freshman. Four guards: DGreen, senior; ADurham, junior, RPhinisee, sophomore; and AFranklin, freshman. I like that balance ALOT.

    2019-2020 Basketball Schedule

    I'd still like to see at least two more "Chicago State-style" severe cupcakes early to build the team's interaction with new players, give everyone court time, and abso-freakin-lutely guarantee more wins.

    With a B1G schedule we will have more than enough credible opponents . We need lots of wins. I can agree that in-state cupcakes would be best.

    (2020) SG Trey Galloway

    Let’s hope this happens, and soon. This young man is the exact type of building block that I very much want to see as a Hoosier.

    19/20 Squad = Class Balance

    When I first saw that picture, I thought "Oh good, OG is in Btown visiting." That is most definitely an in-shape version of DeRon Davis that we haven't seen. Compare that picture to last season's DeRon Davis: And even worse, DeRon in the post two years ago ;) Looking WAAAY better in June 2019.

    'Marching' toward 20-25 wins. Portland State, Nebraska X 2, Iowa, PSU and NW at home; and should be five more home cupcakes out of the six remaining pre-conference games. That's eleven all-but-sure-thing wins so far. Must. Make. NCAATourney.

    What Mike said! If that picture of DeRon and Joey is from the past few weeks, he’s doing just fine.

    #USWNT - 2019 World Cup

    Wow. So dominant.
  10. Yes, please. And I’m not the only one who thinks so:
  11. Press conference by the United States Attorneys Office at noon today. Should be a good one!: BREAKING NEWS / NBC: The FBI has arrested several NCAA asst. basketball coaches in a corruption scheme. Presser @ 12n with U.S. Attorney United States AttPress conference by the United States Attorneys Office at noon today. Should be a good one!
  12. Agreed. The lack of a 2020 commit yet is not a big deal, but it makes a few posters impatient, and a bit cranky.
  13. While I agree with the conclusion that this is not a loss or a problem in any way, Bowhunter's comment is the one negative comment out of a host of "no big deal" comments. In other words, his negative post is apropos of nothing IMO.

    Every top 50 freshman we've had in the last ten years has been a major contributor as a freshman (absent injuries).

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    A top 30 freshmen is overwhelmingly likely to be a core contributor too; he better be!

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    You forgot injured: (Peter Jurkin), ineligible (Guy Marc Michel), athletically limited (Pritch, Capobianco), timid (Fitzner), and ridiculous (Tijan, Middle School Bob, Jeremiah April). Cody, Max, Bryant, and Vonleh were nice though!

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    I was a complete naysayer; NEVER thought he'd recover from a torn Achilles as quickly as he did. Excited to see what he can do after an extra year away from that injury.

    2019 Off-Season IU Roster News and Moves

    Holy crap ... DeRon Davis has most definitely lost some lbs. An in-shape DeRon combined with his late-season attitude toward leadership and accountability would be a helluva player for IU this coming season.

    College Bball Thread

    The Penn St bball beat writer "gets" Curtis Jones, and he's not especially excited about him. FWIW, the chances of CuJo having a big game against us aren't all that high: For transfer Curtis Jones, Penn State represents 3rd stop and 4th head coach in his college basketball odyssey Today 5:15 AM By David Jones | djones@pennlive.com Curtis Jones fits the typical profile of the big guard position during Patrick Chambers 8 years at Penn State – long, very athletic, able to defend, but spotty as a shooter. And that’s largely why Jones is now committing to his third Power Five program during his college career: So far, he’s been a shooting guard who can’t shoot. Maybe his third school is a charm. Or his fourth college head coach. That’s what Patrick Chambers will be for Jones. Jones announced his transfer from Oklahoma State to Penn State on Twitter yesterday. As a senior, he will likely compete for back-up time in the backcourt with rising sophomore Myreon Jones at the 2-guard spot. Jones’ case is an interesting one. He once played with departing PSU senior Josh Reaves at Paul VI High in Fairfax, Va. and was a sought-after 4-star, top-100 national recruit in the class of 2016. The 6-4 guard was offered a scholarship by many name programs including Maryland, Georgetown, California, Virginia Tech, North Carolina State, Pittsburgh, Missouri and West Virginia. He signed with Indiana. Part of a heralded 2016-17 freshman class with DéRon Davis and Devonte Green under Tom Crean, Jones created a stir by scoring 15 points in 16 minutes in the Hoosiers’ first game that season, a 103-99 overtime win over Kansas in Honolulu. That included a pivotal step-back three and a sealing bust-out dunk in the OT. Curtis Jones (0) began his college career with a bang at Indiana, scoring 15 points in his first game against Kansas in Hawai`i. But his playing time gradually dropped during two seasons, bisected by the firing of Tom Crean and hiring of Arch Miller. But that was pretty much his high-water mark with IU. Jones’ playing time diminished as he struggled with his shot (.352 FG%). The Hoosiers took a little longer to go in the tank but eventually got Crean fired with a 4-10 finish after starting 14-6.And when Archie Miller replaced Crean as coach, Jones took a semi-permanent seat on the bench in 2017-18. He played in only 7 games. That precipitated a move to Oklahoma State where Mike Boynton had recently replaced Brad Underwood who’d moved to Illinois after a single season. The Cowboys were pretty much a mess all last year (12-20, 5-14 Big 12) under Boynton. Injuries hit, followed by 4 player explusions in January stemming from a mindless air rifle vandalizing spree that caused thousands of dollars in damage to cars and property. Jones playing time benefitted, but he was beaten out for the starting shooting guard spot by a skinny Floridian driveway shooter named Thomas Dziagwa. Jones got a late start, only gaining eligibility because of his transfer in the second semester, and ended up coming off the bench for substantial minutes. He still couldn’t find any consistency with his perimeter shot (38-117, .325 3P%). And Boynton landed a top-20 recruiting class for 2019-20, likely meaning Jones again would’ve had trouble seeing the floor. Jones gets high marks from Okie State contacts for being a solid citizen, well-liked by teammates and program personnel. Further, he commonly plays under control. He led the Big 12 in low turnover rate in conference games (although, some of that can be attributed to his low rate of handling the ball). He also was 7th-ranked in lowest rate of fouls committed in the league. But Jones will likely gain or lose playing time at PSU next season based on whether he can find his perimeter shot. Nothing looks askew about his mechanics; they just haven’t gone in often enough. If he can turn that around, he has the athletic gifts to be a very meaningful contributor. According to Oklahoma State sources, there’s also the question of whether Jones will be granted grad-transfer status with an outstanding number of credits still to complete that may or may not be obtainable in the summer semester at PSU. If not, he’ll be eligible only in the second semester as he was last season, essentially the bulk of Big Ten play.In that respect, it was somewhat of a surprise to those at Oklahoma State that he didn’t decide to play pro ball overseas or transfer to a Division II school where he could certainly be immediately eligible.
  23. IF is the operative word here.
  24. A re-twit from young Mr. Van Zyl: ‏ @CoachDavidSisk Vanderbilt has contacted South African guard, Austin Van Zyl, who plays in France. He had also heard from Cincinnati, Indiana, & UCLA. There is a possibility that he could also turn pro.
