    I REALLY get a good vibe from Sheehey. I don't know why but I think hes the real deal.

  • Dougy

    I have a terrible feeling about zeller. His brothers at ND and UNC suck. hope we don't get him.

  • Tyler Zeller is averaging close to 10 points and four rebounds a game off the bench for one of the country's top 15 teams. That hardly validates the absurd statement that was just made.

  • Spencer_D

    I agree with Alex. Tyler is a solid player off the bench for UNC, and he's only a sophomore. You have to realize that this kid is only going to get better in the next 2 years. It's also been said that Cody has the most potential of the three Zeller brothers.

    Can anyone tell me anything about Austin Etherington? What kind of player does not have video on You Tube……I have never seen him play but apparently he can score and shoot it…

    Reminder, Will Sheehey will be on ESPNU either tuesday night or wednesday night…check your local listings.

  • Going to see him play on December 30. Hope to have video shortly thereafter.

  • marcusgresham

    How does Oladipo only score a single bucket? Foul trouble? Injury?

    As well as the tournament wednesday on ESPNU, here is a schedule for future high school games on ESPNU. It features both Dematha and Sagemont. http://sportsmedianews.com/12/espn-espn2-and-es

    two points for Victor? Sure going to take a long time to make it back unless the recruiting picks up.

  • Kelin Blab

    I think it is interesting Crean made an offer to a frosh…it is a sign of the times we live in. I do think it was a good move as I think Hicks will be a stud by his senior year. Also in talking to a player who was recruited on the national level…the first school to offer makes a huge difference and all other schools have some catching up to do….

  • Kelin Blab

    Does anyone know how TJ Bell is doing…? Is he on varsity or jv?

  • JV. He's not eligible to play varsity until February due to transfer rules.

  • superhoops

    I agree with Alex as well. Tyler also spent most of his freshman year not playing due to injury, so this is really his first year playing full time. I would love to have Cody come to IU. As for his brother who went to ND, you can't judge his ability as he played for Mike Brey who used him as a perimeter shooter and not down low. Who know what Luke could have done with a real coach. Come to IU Cody and I'll show you some love!

  • sammyhoosier24

    What?! have you ever seen any of them play. i really dont think you know how to judge players.

  • GFDave

    I don't know how far Tyler can go, but right now he's playing ok. His body has changed quite a bit in the last year and he is stronger and he moves well. On Sat against Texas I saw him play. He wasn't a match for the Texas big man who is built a lot like DeMarcus Cousins at KY. Otherwise he was ok coming off the bench, although he didn't change the game, he was a positive contributor in a big time game. I think Cody projects to be a lot like Tyler, so I'm watching NC play to see how Tyler is doing.

  • Taskmaster75

    “Come to IU Cody and I'll show you some love!”

    I've just received word Zeller is no longer interested in Indiana due to this statement 😀

  • GFDave

    funny, nicely played my man.

  • friendoftheprogram

    Austin Etherington…6'6″…good floor game, heady player, can shoot from 25', has solid mid range game, and can back down smaller defenders. He can hammer dunks, drives the baseline well, and has an overall nice game. He needs to defend better, but is a typical HS star playing with lesser competition. He has to get stronger, but has a nice frame to add size and strength. There is no doubt he can be an excellent role player early in his career, and be a nice double figure shooting threat as an upper classman.

  • SAM THOMPSON NEEDS TO BE PRIORITY NUMBER ONE!!! sry for the all caps but it is true..Crean needs to recognize that the best talent is right next door in Chicago every year. Thompson is a junior who plays on the AAU team: Mac Irvin Fire, which is a a squad stacked with D1 players. currently he's ranked in the 30s nationally on rivals but I promise you he will sore up the rankings this year as all of chicago watches his Whitney Young team take over the CPS and State.

    that's what i would like to know. two points…are you kidding me??
