    Ed Schilling leaving

    Moye helps train a ton of players out in Cali. He’s got a lot of connections. Also really enjoyed his trip to B-Town this past season. Aside from the fact that he’s one of my favorite Hoosiers ever I think he could be a valuable asset for this program. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Yeah I have the app but I never use it, always having issues. Site usually runs fairly flawlessly on my PC although I know that doesn't help the mobile users.

    I'm with you here. Really stunned to see him back, at this point we just hope he figures it all out, starting with better overall effort.

    Did I see his name on the Junior All-Star basketball team too?

    My point is more that when you use all of your cap space to fill out your starting 5 with superstars, the downside is your bench is going to be bad. So if injuries hit, you're toast. They hardly have any bench players who would even be in other team's rotations.

    GS's lack of depth rearing its ugly head. No pity here.

    Very good move imo

    I'm torn. We badly need another ball handler off the bench. But between his little YouTube highlight reel of him training, his other video he posted comparing himself to Steve Nash, and his extremely terrible numbers in France I'm just not sold he's a good fit.

    So what's the deal with Vijay? I know he's a good shooter and I would have expected him to see more action last year considering the glaring lack of shooters on our team. I know defense wasn't a real big priority with the Blackmon boys in HS so maybe that has kept him off the floor, but I would think his offensive abilities would make up for that.

    They could sure use his defense

    I went and saw Blackford's game last year against Northwestern. Taysom Parker went off in the first half but in the 2nd Blackford (finally) put Brown on him and he did a great job. He's a smart kid who understands where to be and what is going on. I think he'll end up being considered a strong team defender but an average at best 1 v 1 guy. Depends on how he grows and fills out physically the next few years. One thing it sounds like you can count on is he'll work day and night to improve. He seems to be the kid that will eventually reach his ceiling, whatever that may be.

    The New Zealand team is part of the Australian National Competition, the NBL. The league has a "Next Stars" development system in place for players that will be eligible to declare for the NBA Draft. The NBL contracts the players, not the individual team, so teams are not paying for the players out of there own pockets. This is a direct push by the league to gain bigger notoriety and reputation. It is also easier for the young players to come to Australia/New Zealand because there is no language barriers and the cultures are somewhat similar to the US. The NBL in the last few seasons has taken big steps forward and is a very solid competition now. This is a smart decision by the kid imo and I think this could start a trend of other top players skipping college.
