    Given the scores..looks like Glass and Crean have arranged Luke’s opposition schedule for the year???? Just kiddin’ Nice to see Hartman back in action..work on the 3 pter..IU’s gonna need somebody in that area next year.

    It should be interesting to watch both Hartman and Davis, hoping they stay healthy. They both play on pretty good teams so they’ve not had to do it all so-to-speak, and they’ve been injured a bunch. Watching them healthy, now bigger and stronger, should really give us a first real view on what we’re getting for next year. If Hartman can guard…we know he can shoot, he could see some time next year at the 2 spot. Hollowell will probably be our best shooter though and he’s 6’8″ and probably still growing. Austin and Mo are X factors due to their injuries and finding their new level of play, be it higher or lower. Yogi will be taking some shots if the Butler game is any indicator. Oddly, Hartman, like Nik Stauskas could be a very important component which is almost counterintuitive when you look at the talent in the class.

    I don’t care what level you’re playing in, Blackmon keeps this up he’s a 5-star regardless of what the rankings want to say. He’s a guard!

    What wasn’t pointed out here is that the Ballard team that Hartman’s team beat was ranked #1 in the state of Kentucky.

    Found this Grantland video on how agents recruit athletes fascinating http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeEuGySBFH0&list=PLF722C23CAB7EF496&index=9

  • Sherronhasaheadache

    IU is gonna need Hartman as a shooter next season, he can stroke it. with 6 ncoming players and the reality of CZ comng back for his junior year, no way he’s ready for he NBA, see the butler game,what in the heck is CTC gonna do now? input please

  • Hoosiers231

    Blackmon did put up 21 shots and only made 7. High volume shooter. He did get to the line effectively though.

    I honestly think we will be better next year than we are this year and im counting on Cody leaving, our defense will be ALOT better next year with cwat and hulls out of the lineup, guys like Devin Davis and Troy Williams are who im most exicted about. Our Offense might not be what it is this year but i think we will be fine with Vonleh, Robinson, Remy, Hollowell, Sheehey. They all can fill it up and play defense, i think this year’s team depends to much on the offense and not enough on defense. That is why next years team is gonna be great

    I just heard on JMV Collin Hartman broke his wrist in the game vs Ballard. Man, this kid can’t catch a break. I hope he is able to over come this and still play this season, but not sure how likely that is.

  • Abellham Lincoln

    They have a tough team here in Louisville. They won by two against Jeffersonville (IN) the week before.

  • Remy Willing and Abell

    How was the turn out at bw3 in Middletown ????

  • HoosierPat

    Devin Davis is off to a really good start. He is a rebounding machine. I know this could be a big “if” but if he keeps this up, he could make a run at Mr. Basketball. Especially if his team makes a run in the tourney.

  • calbert40

    Is Fischer’s team that dominate, or is the competition that weak? Maybe a combination? I feel like his team wins by 30 points every time out!

  • HoosierPat

    It should be fun to see how good Cathedral really is if Hartman ever gets healthy.

  • notfargj

    i don’t think cody is leaving.

  • notfargj

    i don’t think cody is leaving.

  • CreanFaithful

    Which hand? Or wrist, i guess…

  • twarrior87

    His left wrist. Looks like he’s having (or already had) surgery. Good news is it says he’s only expected to miss 3 weeks. Here’s a link to the article in the Star: http://www.indystar.com/article/20121218/SPORTS02/212180310

  • OCChoosier

    Cody will leave if they make it to the Final Four. His stock has already dropped since the beginning of the year

  • twarrior87

    Isn’t his “stock dropping” a reason for him not to leave?

  • OCChoosier

    Never said it “wasn’t.”

  • notfargj

    after saturday, it’s evident he’s not ready to hold his own against bigger players. he was simply pushed around and out-muscled. he will still be a top-10 pick in a couple of years. frankly, i think it would be foolish for him to leave early.

  • mike

    doesn’t matter how the recruits are ranked. Butler proved that Sat.

    I’ve been saying the same thing all season. And I just believe that Cody is too smart to let someone fill his head that he is ready to compete at the PF and/or C position in the NBA against grown men. He needs at least one more year of physical development to truly make an impact at the next level. But none the less, he is easily a top 5 pick this year no matter what. After next year, if he can add another 15 to 20 lbs mostly in the lower body, while still holding on to some of the things that make him special for his height and real appealing to NBA teams, he could be the top pick, rookie of the year, and possibly an all star in his first NBA season.

  • Kenneth234

    I would say that when it comes down to it, we may see Creek not come back for another season, may see Etherington lose his scholarship, and perhaps Hartman have to find another school last minute. All in all, I think that Oladipo and Zeller are staying for another season.

    With that being said, it may be an opportunity for IU to redshirt either Jurkin, Hallowell, Fischer and/or Davis and still have an incredible mix of players.

    Consider the starters could be: Zeller, Vonleh, Sheehey, Oladipo, Yogi
    bench could be- @ Center: (Jurkin or Fischer), @ PF: Perea
    @ SF: (Hallowell, Williams, or Davis),
    @ SG: Robinson, and @ PG: Abel

    Both groups, any way they were shuffled would be very tough on defense and have formidable weapons on offense.

    Cody has to work on his 5-15 ft shot–he had in hs. Won’t get by trying to dunk everything in the pros–guys are too big and strong .
