Cody Zeller

4. Charlotte: Cody Zeller – Indiana 7-0, PF/C 20 years old, Sophomore

Right before this pick was made, we told ourselves it had to be Nerlens Noel. It only made sense. Instead, the Bobcats go with one of the best athletes in the draft: Cody Zeller. He blew everyone away during the draft combines and can really get up and down the floor. Read More »

Victor Oladipo

2. Orlando: Victor Oladipo – Indiana 6-4, SG 21 years old, Junior

After one of the wildest first picks in NBA Draft history, the Magic go with Oladipo. This kid is an incredible defender who is immediately going to help turn around Orlando’s “loser” mentality. When you’re building a team in this day and age, you need leaders. Read More »

How Victor Oladipo Could Go From Being The Next Tony Allen To The Next Dwyane Wade

Victor Oladipo

Victor Oladipo is widely regarded as the most improved player in this year’s draft, and rightfully so. He’s come a long way. Oladipo wasn’t exactly the most highly touted prospect coming out of DeMatha Catholic High School, and at Indiana it took a long time for him to come into his own offensively. His freshman and sophomore campaigns were very pedestrian to say the least. Read More »

Victor Oladipo

Sometime during this past college basketball season, when the hype surrounding Indiana was at its height, there was a brief debate over Hoosiers guard Victor Oladipo drawing comparisons (albeit very timid comparisons) to Michael Jordan. Read More »

Cody Zeller Joins A Host Of College Prospects Who Say They’re Ready For The NBA

Cody Zeller

This was supposed to be Indiana’s year. Magazine covers. A No. 1 ranking. A No. 1 seed. A few All-American candidates. The Hoosiers looked like the best team in the nation for much of late 2012, and even if they never turned it up before the NCAAs started, their talent convinced some (hint: this guy) they could overcome that.

Aaron Craft Hits The Biggest Shot Of The Tournament; James Harden Beats The Spurs

Aaron Craft

Sometimes an early test is all a top seed needs to get themselves going in March Madness (think Tyus Edney for UCLA in ’95). Ohio State had theirs yesterday against Iowa State, and are still alive because they have one of the best leaders in college basketball … Read More »

March Madness Is Finally Here; LeBron James & Miami’s Win Streak Reaches 22

Cody Zeller

A few interesting subplots went down in the NBA last night, headlined by Miami invading Jurassic Park and destroying the Raptors. But it all still took a backseat to March Madness … While many predicted the top four No. 1 seeds correctly (Louisville, Kansas, Gonzaga and Indiana), that still didn’t stop Jay Bilas and the rest of the fellas from questioning them.

Last night in Bloomington, while his team may have lost to a tough visiting Ohio State squad, Indiana’s Victor Oladipohe of many sick highlights – may have come up with the block of the year.

Russell Westbrook Destroys The Lakers; Avery Bradley Puts On A Shooting Exhibition

Russell Westbrook

Coming into a meaningful matchup with OKC, the Lakers were 1-9 against the top four seeds in the West, and 1-10 on the road against the top eight in the West. Maybe they saw a performance like last night coming? They looked rattled and nervous, like a bunch of freshmen making their first start in a JV game. The Lakers fell behind 10-1 before Kendrick Perkins even had a chance to scowl. Read More »
