Austin Etherington and Cody Zeller will be Indiana basketball teammates next winter in Bloomington. They’ll also be teammates at Friday’s Derby Festival Basketball Classic presented by papajohns.com at the KFC Yum! Center.
The pair of IU signees arrived in Louisville on Wednesday afternoon and their first stop was Basketball Academy for media availability and practice.
On Thursday, they’ll visit children at Kosair Hospital, tour the Muhammad Ali Center and participate in the Night of the Future Stars at Bellarmine University. Etherington said he’ll likely participate in the 3-point shootout, while Zeller wasn’t sure if he would participate in the 3-point shootout or dunk contest.
