Good to see IU getting some love, but I'd say a bit TOO much love right now. #1? Until proven otherwise, I still say IU is #3 in the CONFERENCE.

Maybe they can reach #1 at some point next yr, the potential is there. But I put them closer to 8-10 to begin the season, rankings-wise.

yes, this is a tad premature.

54 Sectionals
27 Regionals
5 Semistates

I bet the practices are going to be even more intense next season with the new recruits coming in.

If Zeller and Watford stay, they definitely have a shot to reach #1 at some point next yr, but not right away.

I agree... As an IU fan, you can see the potential, but #1 is to high... I can see somewhere between 5-9.... Certainly with the recruits coming in they add a lot of depth... Who starts next year? Can you play Yogi at the 1 and Hulls at the 2 on the court together at once? I love the way Hulls plays but he is a shooting guard in a pt. guard's body... He is a step slow and doesn't defend well... Will someone (or 2) transfer or who redshirts?

Here is a list of what they have coming back (in no order)

Pt. Guard
Yogi
Hulls
Abell

Shooting Guard
Oladipo
Sheehey
Patterson
Etherington

Small Forward
Watford
Creek
Hallowell

Power Forward
Perrea
Elston

C
Zeller
Jurkin

Jurkin will likely go to prep school for a yr.

I think your starters are: Zeller, Yogi, Watford, Creek and Hulls or Oladipo. Of course, Creek could be hurt again by then.

That is taking into account the suspensions for Perea and Jurkin

Suspensions for 9 games for taking gifts from a "booster" who gave $185 to IU 20-plus yrs ago.

The same day, a player expelled from Xavier is declared eligible to play immediately for Maryland.

NCAA stinks.

They looked like #1 last night. Fantastic on the defensive end.

Eh, we will see how they look next week against some programs that don't have names with three or more words...
