Recruitment of De’Ron Davis hitting the home stretch

2015 adidas Gauntlet Indianapolis

The recruitment of class of 2016 Overland, Colorado forward De’Ron Davis is in its final stages.

And Indiana, which has recruited Davis for more than three years now, appears to be in very solid position for the four-star prospect.


Film Session: Ottawa

In Indiana’s uneven, yet convincing victory against the Ottawa Gee-Gees on Monday night, there was at least one constant: freshman Thomas Bryant’s energy.

His seven-foot frame and massive wingspan were all over the court on both offense and defense. He ran the floor. He blocked shots. He guarded the perimeter. He offensive rebounded, keeping possessions alive for his teammates and himself.

In the inaugural edition of Film Session for the 2015-2016 season, we’ll take a look at some of Bryant’s energy during the beginning of Indiana’s final 10 minutes of play. It was a stretch where the Hoosiers began a 25-3 run to close out the game and the freshman’s effort was a big part of it.


Five takeaways from Indiana’s win over Ottawa


In our first exhibition look at the 2015-2016 Indiana Hoosiers in Assembly Hall, the outcome was a comfortable 82-54 win over Canadian power Ottawa on Tuesday night.

Here’s a look at five takeaways from the win:

· Bryant brings the energy: It doesn’t come as any surprise for those who saw him as a high school player, but the addition of freshman McDonald’s All-American Thomas Bryant should be a game changer because of his energy.

Tuesday was the first time highly-touted freshman Thomas Bryant and transfer Max Bielfeldt were on the court in an Indiana uniform for game action. Neither disappointed.

Bryant recorded a double-double, with 12 points and 11 rebounds (six of them on the offensive glass), while Bielfeldt nabbed eight points to go along with eight rebounds.

The Minute After: Ottawa


Thoughts on an 82-54 win over Ottawa:

The University of Ottawa cut Indiana’s second half lead to only six points. The Gee-Gees had just hit three 3-pointers in their past five trips down the floor, making it a two-possession game with 9:13 to go on Tuesday night in the Hoosiers’ first exhibition of the season.

So, how did the Hoosiers respond against the only team it lost to during last summer’s exhibition tour of Canada? By simply going on a 25-3 run to close out the game, leading to an 82-54 Hoosiers win.

A variety of players contributed to the late-game surge — including freshman Thomas Bryant’s initial two offensive rebounds and put-back layup to back-to-back 3-pointers from James Blackmon Jr. and Yogi Ferrell. But the crux of the game focused on the Hoosiers fixing their previous errors during Tuesday night’s game.
