In this edition of the show, Morris and Inside the Hall editor Alex Bozich are joined by Sports Illustrated NBA editor Matt Dollinger to talk Hoosiers in the NBA and also some Hoosiers who could be picked in June’s NBA draft.
Indiana’s offense was elite in the 2012-2013 and 2014-2015 seasons, but the Hoosiers took things to another level in 2015-2016.

Jones tries to grow as a leader in senior season at Huntington Prep
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – As Curtis Jones began his senior season at Huntington Prep, there was a leadership void that needed to be filled.
The graduation of Thomas Bryant – the team’s vocal leader and energy guy – was a significant loss. And Jones, along with Michigan State signee Miles Bridges, were thrust into more prominent roles for their senior seasons.

Senior walk-on Ryan Burton had two of those moments in his final season in Bloomington.
A former Division II player at Bellarmine University in Louisville and a native of Bedford, Burton came to Indiana to focus on being a student in the Kelley School of Business. It was a dream come true for him to play out his final two seasons of eligibility for Indiana. In his final year at IU, he helped the Hoosiers capture a Big Ten championship.
