Will Sheehey still thinking fall decision

  • 11/10/2009 9:32 pm in

Will Sheehey, a 6-6 wing from Sagemont High in Broward County (FL) who recently surfaced on Indiana’s recruiting radar, could sign a Letter of Intent during the early signing period that begins Wednesday and concludes on November 18.

“I’m still thinking fall, but I’m not sure,” Sheehey told Inside the Hall on Tuesday night.

Indiana is considered the school to beat for Sheehey after his official visit to Bloomington this past weekend. It was Sheehey’s first time visiting IU’s campus and the state of Indiana.

“It was great. Bloomington was great,” he said of the visit. “Coach Crean is a very intense guy, which is a good thing. I think they’re definitely on the rise and I learned a lot about Indiana.”

    I read about it, so I'll try to share the story from memory. Historically IU does not hang Big Ten banners. However, in 1983 the team was locked in a very close battle for the Big Ten Championship. In one of the last games of the regular season the fans sold out the arena and made the environment very difficult for the visiting team. After the game coach Knight grabbed the microphone and addressed the crowd, saying that they would need to be just as loud in the season finale which would determine the conference championship. IU won their last game and coach Knight hung the Big Ten Championship banner, deemed “The Fan's Championship” to thank them for their support.

    The banner had been taken down during the Mike Davis tenure.

    I have heard that Coach Crean had a part in having it rehung in Assembly Hall.
