An early look at the 2015-2016 frontcourt


With the official start of practice a little less than a month away, the 2015-2016 season is on the horizon. We’ll have comprehensive player-by-player previews later this fall, but here’s an early look at some of the storylines to keep an eye on with this season’s frontcourt:

· Significant turnover hampers depth: When Indiana landed a commitment from McDonald’s All-American Thomas Bryant in April, the Hoosier looked set to have a much improved and much deeper frontcourt assembled for the 2015-2016 season.


Injury in the rearview, Hartman prepares for junior campaign


After an underwhelming first season in Bloomington, expectations for Collin Hartman as a sophomore were tepid.

The Cathedral product appeared in just 16 games during his first season in an IU uniform, totaling 11 points in 72 minutes. At the conclusion of the 2013-2014 season during a workout, he tore his ACL, forcing him to miss the offseason and sit out the program’s trip to Montreal and Ottawa last August.

That’s A Wrap: Collin Hartman


Welcome to “That’s A Wrap,” our player-by-player recap of the 2014-2015 Indiana Hoosiers. Today: Collin Hartman.

Hartman (31 games): 4.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 8.6 OR%, 64.2 eFG% in 19.7 minutes per game.

Collin Hartman was the surprise of the season.

After a freshman campaign where he was used sparingly on a squad that failed to qualify for the NCAA Tournament or the NIT, Hartman tore his ACL during a workout in mid-March of last year. It was a tough blow and the odds of him making a significant contribution to Indiana’s re-tooled lineup seemed slim.

But Hartman put in the work during his recovery and proved the odds wrong.

“I’d never really not had basketball,” Hartman said in early December. “Just not being on the court, not being able to work with the guys and do everything everybody else does. It kind of just gave me a new hunger almost to just get out there and just be aggressive (and to) be able to help the team.”

Not only was he suited up for Indiana’s first game of the season, he started 11 games and went on to be the team’s best 3-point shooter from a percentage standpoint (45.6%). His eFG% of 64.2 was good for third on the squad behind Nick Zeisloft (67.4) and Emmitt Holt (65.0). 

Beyond his efficient offense game, Hartman was Indiana’s glue guy. He often seemed to find himself in the right place at the right time. He made the correct pass. He hustled for loose balls. He grabbed the important rebound. The sophomore also held his own on the boards, as his offensive rebounding percentage (8.6) trailed only Holt (13.5) and Troy Williams (9.5).

And when Mosquera-Perea went down with injury — or when Indiana decided to go small — Hartman did an admirable job at the center position for the Hoosiers. His best stretch 5 performance of the season came in a rout of Maryland at Assembly Hall. Hartman went 4-of-4 from the field (3-of-3 from distance) and knocked in 4-of-5 from the line for a career-high 15 points. Hartman also racked up three blocks during 29 minutes of action.
