Offseason storylines: Is Troy Williams in line for another leap?

IUWSU0015

Welcome to offseason storylines, a look into some of the biggest storylines surrounding the 2015-2016 Indiana Hoosiers. First up, a detailed look at rising junior Troy Williams — his game, his numbers, his future and the possibility of another big leap as a junior. 

If the title here looks familiar, it’s because a post with a similar title was penned last June. At the time, Williams was coming off a freshman season with mixed results, but there was plenty of optimism for what he might become in his second collegiate season.

A year later, Williams appears on the cusp of a breakout after a sophomore season full of improvements. At the recent Nike Skills Academy, Williams was already being discussed as a player who could find himself with a guaranteed NBA contract a season from now.

But there’s still plenty of room for growth for a player who has the talent to land in the first round of next June’s NBA draft. In fact, according to Williams’ uncle, Boo Williams, there were teams willing to consider him in the first round of this year’s draft, but that wasn’t assurance enough to convince him it was time to go.

Highlights from Tom Crean’s appearance on ESPNU podcast

IUNCAAPrac0017

Indiana coach Tom Crean was a guest on ESPNU’s college basketball podcast earlier today where he primarily discussed the legacy of Bo Ryan following yesterday’s news that the Wisconsin coach will retire after the 2015-2016 season.

You can listen to the full podcast here.

Crean also discussed a couple of topics pertinent to next season and here are some highlights:

On Thomas Bryant: “We’ve had four different individual workouts with him now and every time I walk out of one there, there’s something that I really didn’t realize he has. Right away, I thought, ‘We’re going to have to do a lot more with his left hand this summer,’ though his left hand is pretty good. His shooting is coming, he’s got to learn to shoot off the move, and all of a sudden, he rings off five 3s in a row the other night in drills. To me, when you’ve got someone who can space like that — and that’s what we’ve got to get to as a team, is that you’ve got to guard us in the paint, you’ve got to guard us at the 3-point line and everywhere in-between, especially in transition and in the shot clock.”
