    the first thing that stands out on these lists is that 5 are from Indiana. also, at this point my money is on VO to finish higher in the POY standings then CZ. Vic is a one man wrecking crew, hard to grasp how much improvement he’s made in one year.

  • HoosierBballNut

    And to think TC said Will and Cody are the most improved players ;) No kidding those guys are playing much better than last year too .. I am not complaining :D

  • MillaRed

    McLemore is the best scorer, can’t argue between he and Yogi. Both top3 teams. Stauskas? Really? That’s ridiculous. He sits in the corner and waits for everyone else to open the floor.

    I would put Bennett right there with Mclemore as the top two frosh right now. Then Yogi but if Yogi leads us deep into March he should move up. I agree on Stauskas. Hope he doesnt get many good looks on saturday though. Glen Robinson is much better than I thought he was gonna be. Glad he did not go to PUke.

    Respectfully disagree. I live in a house full of wolverine fans so I see a lot of Stauskas. He has a good handle, nice vision/passing ability, and the shooting stroke is obvious. He makes michigan a better team

    If we end up higher ranked than kansas than yogi has a shot. Otherwise Vic is definitly getting noticed and he should be a factor at the end of the season if IU reaches the final four. Stil think Cody goes highest in the drat

    I was at the IN – KY high school all star game in Louisville and this usually tight ass IU fan put out the $ to buy a premium seat. Wanted to get a real close up look since it had so many kids that were either coming to IU or going to a team that IU would be playing in the coming season. I came away with a very favorable impression of GR3. In fact, in that particular game anyway, I’d have to say he impressed me than anyone on IN’s team, overall game wise. No coincidence that that is also when I started to worry about UM more come B1G season. Am now curious if we didn’t go to any real length to recruit him, if he had no interest in us or if it was a mutual disinterest in each other.
