On Friday at 8:00 ET, the top-ranked Indiana Hoosiers open the 2012-13 season by hosting the Bryant Bulldogs on the Big Ten Network.
Indiana has pulled out of the recruiting battle for highly touted big man BeeJay Anya, shifting their attention to #7-ranked Noah Vonleh.
It was reported first by Zach Osterman of Inside Indiana, and confirmed by Inside The Hall, that senior forward Derek Elston has a torn meniscus and is expected to miss a couple of months.
With commitment time starting to quickly approach, IU seems to have many factors that could convince 6’9 big man BeeJay Anya to choose Bloomington as his college destination.
Die-hard Hoosier basketball fans are raised with a burning passion of hatred against the university’s main rivals, Purdue and Kentucky. So what happens when you’re all but forced to root for one of your rival’s main contributors?
Terry Hutchens wrote a terrific piece this morning that reminded me of a topic I’ve been wanting to address: Indiana’s scholarship crunch for the upcoming 2012-13 season. Hutchens’ piece – entitled "Hoosiers need to find a scholarship for Roth" – echoes exactly what I have been thinking about this issue.
The Indiana Hoosiers have a trip to the Elite 8 and a second victory over a hated arch-rival on the line tonight, but those reasons are not anywhere close to the main reason why Jerod hopes IU prevails tonight. He, like many IU fans across the globe, just really, really does not want this season, with this team, to end.
Kentucky is a great team, deserving of being the favorite to cut down the nets in New Orleans on April 1st. However, Jerod has had about enough of people disregarding Indiana’s chances to beat Kentucky on Friday night because the outcome is far from the foregone conclusion that some seem to think it is.
I am just sick about this news. Indiana has confirmed this morning that senior Verdell Jones tore his ACL during the first half of yesterday’s game against Penn State. He will miss the rest of the Big Ten Tournament and any games Indiana plays in the NCAA Tournament.
On Sunday at 6:00 ET, the 20th-ranked Indiana Hoosiers (23-7, 10-7) close out the regular season when they host the Purdue Boilermakers (20-10, 10-7) on the Big Ten Network.
A number of players need to play well tonight for Indiana to knock off yet another top-5 team in Assembly Hall. But no Hoosier is more important to the Hoosiers’ chances of beating a tough, talented, tested Michigan State team tonight than junior forward Christian Watford.
On Tuesday at 7:00 ET, the 20th-ranked Indiana Hoosiers (22-7, 9-7) return home to host the 5th-ranked Michigan State Spartans (24-5, 13-3) on ESPN.
Victor Oladipo’s role is morphing into one consistent with athletic, multi-talented Tom Crean guards of years past. Of course, the most famous of Crean’s such guards is Dwyane Wade. So I wondered today: how do Oladipo’s numbers over the last six games compare to Wade’s numbers as a sophomore? I was pleasantly surprised with the answer.
On Sunday at 1:00 ET, the 24th-ranked Indiana Hoosiers (21-7, 8-7) face a tough road test against the Minnesota Golden Gophers (17-11, 5-10) on ESPN.
On Wednesday at 7:00 ET, the 24th-ranked Indiana Hoosiers (20-7, 8-7) return home to host the North Carolina Central Eagles (14-12) on the BTN.com.
