    He’s widely considered the best athlete in the B1G. He’s also one of the best defenders, if not the best. The NBA Draft is all about potential. He needs to improve his outside shooting, but that’s no reason why he wouldn’t get drafted at this point.

    If he does go pro after this year and he gets drafted,he would probably be a late second round pick. Most players that are late second round picks stay for four years. Why would he go pro after 3? When he can stay for four and get better. I am not denying his freakish athlethic ability ,but the nba requires more than just being athlethic.

    If it is “all about potential”, he could have left last year after everyone saw his athleticism. @jaypay23:disqus is right. He came back to develop his dribbling & shooting. If he can’t do either, he won’t get drafted at 6’4″. Therefore, the draft isn’t “all about potential”. I hope he’s improved on his shooting or dribbling. Maybe he is a late bloomer and needs 4 years of college to realize his potential and possible why his HS ranking wasn’t too high.

    Anya down to IU and NC ST. I don’t know what will happen with the scholly situation, but adding Anya would be huge. It might be disappointing to see someone get pushed out, because no matter it is going to happen to someone. Troy and Anya would make this class elite and keep IU at the top next year as well. Getting these commits will only continue to help bring in the DC area talent.

    I could see Williams and hollowell playing the 3/4 quite nicely. Both are long enough to help with rebounds and defense, while both are athletic and skilled enough for offense. I actually think they would complement each other quite nicely.

    We talk about Sheeladipo, but this kid might actually be Sheeladipo 2.0

    My barber just told me a story recently about a guy who was on the team when Coach knight was hired. Coach Knight brought him in the office, laid out 3-4 Names of other University’s that he reached out to, and told the guy that “if your going to play basketball anywhere, its going to be at one of these schools!” He was told that he wasn’t at the talent level that Knight wanted at IU. The guy spoke very highly of Knight, saying “He appreciated the honesty and effort to provide him with options.”

    These things happen. Even the great Coach Knight did this. It especially happens when programs convert from bottom tier to Elite. Don’t expect these things to continue throughout CTC’s tenure. Now we have the attention of everyone. We don’t have to sell playing time in the B1G to mid major guys. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like it either. Its not something that you like to hear but Matt Roth was treated beyond well. He left IU with a free masters degree and a place on one of our all time favorite Hoosier teams. He’ll be remembered for a long time. Do you want to win National Championships? I don’t see how going after the talent that IU has always went after is mimicking Kentucky-ball. Coach is after good kids who can score on the court and in the classroom at a elite level. Sit back and support our coach.

    You have no idea where he is going to be projected in the draft by the end of this season. I think he’ll be much higher than a late 2nd round pick. A subpar 3pt % is not going to effect his draft status they way you think it will. DWade made 15 3’s last year, Tony Parker only made 14. They’re slashers who don’t need to rely on the three ball – just like VO.

    Why would he go pro? The same rea$on everyone else does.

    Even though a 4-yr player may have another year of elgibility, they have taken a scholarship for 4 years, which is usually enough time to get a degree. I think that a scholarship offer should be good for 4 years and only more if there is room. Besides, if a player wants to start a 5th year, then they (or parents) can pay for just one year before graduation. Take Mark Roth, he could have stayed another year at his own expense and be part of a championship-quality team that is a once-in-a-lifteime opportunity. A different example, if Cody decides to come back next year, he might offer to pay his own way, because in he would likely get paid for his first pro game more than twice as much as a year’s cost at IU, not counting any signing bonuses. One year of college expenses is just not that much compared to total income over a lieftime.

  • Mel Piepho

    He can stay on the team next year without a scholarship. See my earlier comment above.

  • mark

    no, because Cody could get hurt and then never play an NBA game.

    I’d rather watch Etherington and Abell mature than usher them off the team to make way for some McDonald’s All-American. IU won championships with guys like Etherington and Abell, not with a bunch of All-Americans (except for ’76). And that’s precisely what makes it special.
