    If You Could Add A Player

    John Laskowski. He was a total team player who averaged double digits coming off the bench. And at 6'6'' he was versatile.
  2. That must be why their teams never lost.
  3. There was quite a bit of fan criticism of Watford his first couple of seasons at IU. That criticism evaporated after he hit the shot that beat number one Kentucky.
  4. Except Jay Edwards led his high school team to multiple state championships and was a high school Parade and USA All American.
  5. The play calling for this team is atrocious. So predictable.

    Jay Edwards

    Alford's average was 5.9 points per game from 3-point range during the 1986-87 season--meaning he averaged two 3-point shots a game. Coach Knight hated the 3-point shot and preferred that they not shoot from 3-point range.

    Actually, Alford shot most of his shots inside what would have been the 3-point line during his first three seasons at IU when there was no 3-point shot. Alford's 3-point shooting percentage in 1986-87, the only season the 3-point rule existed during his college career, was 53%.
  8. Galloway's inability to hit perimeter shots means he will come off the bench and play behind Tamar Bates and Jalen Hood-Schifino. He needs a shot doctor as his shooting form is pretty bad (unusual for a coach's son). Also, because he lacks a reliable outside shot, his offense is predictable making him easier to guard than the other two. But he is a hustle player who has a knack for getting steals and loose balls.He will definitely see the floor based on his defense and hustle but his playing time could be reduced from last season with the addition of Hood-Schifino and the apparent improvement of Bates (as reported over the summer).

    Scott May was 6'7''. Mike Woodson was 6'5''.

    Yes. It was a joke and exactly as you say-- because Maryland beat us on two players who visited IU the same week as Page. As far as I know, Page is not considering Maryland.

    Page is going for a visit at Maryland first.
  12. That's not what I said. This started with a prediction that Reneau would be as good as TJD was a freshman. I pointed out that TJD averaged over 13 points and 8 rebounds a game and was all-conference 3rd team as a freshman. Reneau won't come close to matching those numbers nor will he make an all-conference team. Those are qualitative measurements. What is "one of the best players on the team" mean? The best players tend to be those who start games, those who log the most playing time, and those who are on the floor at the end of close games. I predict barring injuries Reneau will not start and, in general, will not be on the floor at the end of close games. I have no doubt he will contribute when he is on the floor in a back-up role. Perhaps, he will fall into a "super sub" category as someone who contributes as much as starters do. That would be great if that is the case.

    Hoosier Fan Fest

    The hunger to watch IU basketball live far outweighs any risk that Hoosier Hysteria is marginalized by an NIL event in the summer. If you hold it, they will come.
  14. OK. That's your prediction. My prediction is that Reneau will be an effective back-up to TJD and Race Thompson. He might struggle against the North Carolina and Kansas teams that are early in the schedule, but will improve steadily throughout the season. You have your prediction and I have mine. Only time will tell which one is the more accurate.
  15. I agree Reneau will play and will show signs of being very good. But he won't be as good as TJD was as a freshman. TJD was the best player on that IU team as a freshman. If he is that good he would start. And, he is not starting ahead of TJD or Race Thompson.
