    IUBB - 2020 Off-Season News

  6. Lol...that's a pretty solid limb you're going out on.
  7. With this quote from Braden Smith's dad, here's to hoping that Braden Smith becomes the best freakin player in the nation so that he can have a major impact at IU: “Coach (Tom) Ostrom calls. Coach (Bruiser) Flint has been calling,” Dustin said. “Any kid who is in the state of Indiana that says they don’t want to play at Indiana University is lying. I don’t see how anyone could say they don’t want to.”

    Yup -- as criticized as it has been when the parent of a top athlete creates an AAU summer team, the creation of an entire sham high school takes it to a whole new level. Prolific Prep look out, here come Ypsi Academy!

    So he has pretty much given up on any facade of attending a real high school for the next two years?

    Okay guys...IT’S TIME FOR INSTALLMENT #2: This is an IU vs Kentucky matchup at Assembly Hall ... no, not THAT one! Under the category of how far we’ve come, this is the 2009 game: “the Maurice Creek game.” UK had three lotto picks in their starting five and another on the bench. Pritchard guarded DeMarcus Cousins, Jeremiah Rivers guarded John Wall and VJ3 guarded Eric Bledsoe. Our bigs off the bench? Elston, Capo, Tijan and Bawa Muniru. Steven Gambles and Danny Moore got some run. For the first half, Mo Creek was the best player on the floor for either team.
  12. If you want to understand IU b-ball, there are some games that need to be watched. I’m gonna post a really good one now and then, from all eras. To start? The single most dominant one game performance I’ve ever seen by an IU team. The 1981 Hoosiers, their way to a national championship, met the top 20 Maryland Terrapins in round two of the NCAA Tourney. The Terps has first team All-American Albert King, and future perennial NBA star Buck Williams. They jumped out to a 8-0 lead, and then Isiah, Ray, and Randy got extraordinary. An incredibly dominant performance. Enjoy:

    I wholeheartedly support your last sentence: “Who knows at this point?” While I’ll remain “better safe than sorry”, your conclusion sums up what I conclude too.
  14. Since the topic came up with Wittman today, I thought I’d start a thread so that each of us can name their all-time Indiana University basketball under rated team. This can be a set of players that either don’t get enough credit for their pivotal, role player achievements, or an all-time great that isn’t put into the pantheon of the Isiah Thomas, Calbert Cheaney, Victor Oladipo level. My team? Wittman Jeff Newton Wayne Radford Brian Evans Greg Graham

    (2022) - SF Alex Karaban

    I know it’s a highlight reel, but check it out as linked in this article. Extremely impressive; a very young 6’8” forward playing at the highest level of competition with a great stroke who gets low on the drive and is very quick with the ball. YES PLEASE!

    Big Ten All Decade Team

    Winston should have been first team without question in my opinion. I also prefer Cody or Lamar Stevens to Russell or Swanigan. Hell, Russell only played one year at OSU ... he's a blip high-volume scorer in their history. Not only did Cody and Stevens put up just as good numbers, but they both had a far bigger impact on their respective programs than either Russell or Swanigan. Cody Zeller and Swanigan both played two years in college. Cody was notably superior statistically in: Points per game Blocks Steals Fewer Turnovers FG % (FT% was the same) Team Won/Lost Record Grade Point Average
  20. Was at the Maryland game. Was shorter and not at all in shape earlier in his high school career. Has grown to 6'9" 260 lbs, and is starting to dominate Indiana 2A ball. A seriously under-the-radar late bloomer. Un-ranked and completely unheard of by any major service. Between his soph and junior years? Big increases in blocks, steals (and scoring). The trend of a kid who is becoming more athletic. Maxpreps has his stats: Game Stats Year Grade Team GP MPG PPG DEFR OFFR RPG APG SPG BPG TPG PFPG Varsity Totals 50 14.7 6.1 3.7 9.7 1.3 0.9 1.1 2.3 2.4 19-20 Junior Varsity 13 23.4 7.2 4.5 11.8 2.0 1.5 1.8 3.1 2.2 18-19 Sophomore Varsity 20 16.6 7.1 4.2 11.3 1.5 0.8 1.1 2.6 2.6 17-18 Freshman Varsity 17 5.8 4.1 2.4 6.4 0.6 0.6 0.5 1.5 2.4

    From Indiana: #iubb #iufb "As part of IU Athletics’ pre-participation protocols, doctors have administered 187 COVID-19 tests for student-athletes, coaches and staff, with zero positive tests reported. Testing began on June, 9, 2020."

    Big Ten All Decade Team

    Given the makeup of the voting panel, I expect that last first team slot to be a showdown between John Shurna, Bryant McIntosh, Meyers Leonard, Ayo Donsumu, Sam Dekker, and Bronson Koenig.

    Big Ten All Decade Team

    Maybe we can get a better understanding by looking at the alma maters of those on the voting panel. Belein & Bacon (UM), Hummel (PU), Brust, Katz, and Butch (Wisky), Settles (Iowa), Elmore (MD), Miles (NE), Revsine, Greenstein, Byington, & Morris (NW), Bardo & Roux (IL), Shelton (MSU), Wenzel (RUT)

    Cassius Winston is also second team! That is not okay. Is it me, or do you all see BTN broadcaster Robbie Hummel making his way onto the first team? I guess as of now I'm thinking the first team will be: Kaminsky, Burke, Valentine, Hummel, an geez, I dunno... Cody? Garza? Stevens?
