    Is it me or is Sheehey the most consistent stat-wise ?

  • GFDave

    I was looking at the numbers and thinking how consistent Sheehey seems to be. Then I saw your post. So at least two of us think he's consistent. I also think that 15-17 points seems to be his floor. Sometimes he goes off for quite a few more.

  • Kelin Blab

    Having seen Carlino in person, if we don't get that elite PG in 2010 or 2011, I am ok with Carlino. I like his size, he has some grit, and some craft moves and very long arms.

    Sheheey, can't wait to see him on tv this month. He seems to be a sleeper.

    I think if IU pulls off an upset of a PU or MSU, a lot of those 'I am checking out IU' recruits could be swayed. Not to mention the progress of the team and players like VJ3, JR.

    I know Alex is not indulging in my Austin Rivers rumor/campaign, but I have read he is playing very well. (and that is your rumor mill update)

  • JerryCT

    I read comments from him somewhere that he credits Fab Melo with causing the defense to sag which opens him up. Hopefully he is just modest. He outscores Melo and often out rebounds Melo as well. I am getting very curious about what we actually have here in Sheehey. Can he pass or play defense ?

    I keep thinking we need a “signature” player that will be the face of our resurgence. We need a player that explodes onto the national scene , a media darling that can highlight our program and Crean's player development. I love Creek, Watford, Jones, Hulls, Elston etc but I donot see the “signature” player yet among them.

  • Uncle Joey

    You really don't think Mo Creek is our signature player? …really?

  • AndrewWilson

    Just to get everyone's opinion on this, but let's say Cody Zeller wins a state title. Where would you rank that family in Indiana basketball history? I am not old enough to remember a period of time before, however I would think they have got to be up there in the rankings.

  • GFDave

    As Kelin says below we get a chance to see him play: Friday, February 5 at 5PM on ESPNU.

  • JerryCT

    I hope so but we have not seen defense( Ol Miss exploited him badly ) or assists out of him and then there is the injury……..still I hope so.

    Right now I feel Rivers is our best shot. He has the father, the rebounding, assists, defense, transfer from Gtwn and then and then……………what's with the shooting ?

  • kesims

    Any new news on Ricardo Ratliffe? He could be a huge steal for us. Add his size with our athleticism coming in over the summer and we could have a really good next year if mo can back to strength sooner than later. Ant info on him would be much appreciated.

  • Hoosier76

    here is the youtube video of the dematha gonzaga game. If VO keeps developing the sky is the limit for this kid.

  • BaseballBuc

    I actually heard that he didn't enjoy his visit to IU. But I wouldn't put much merit on that.


    Wondering how the competiton Sheehey plays against stacks up against the teams that VO is playing against or how it compares to what Carlino is playing against as some of you have a pretty good handle on that. I'm thinking that VO probably is playing a tougher schedule overall than Sheehey or Carlino. Believe it was GFDave that had a link awhile back to an interview with Sheehey and I felt like it gave a us a pretty good look, or as good as a short interview with a teenager can, into him as a person as much as a bball player. Came away feeling better about him after viewing it. Seems like he has good decision making on and off the court. Just what we need at this point in the rebuilding process.

  • Kelin Blab

    Thanks for the video on VO….active, athletic, intense, plays hard….4 things we could use.

  • BigRed3588

    The Shephards from Carmel probably still hold the #1 spot in that category

  • Tried to make contact there, but I've had little success. That said, I don't get the sense that IU is a serious factor.

  • iurons

    Could not agree with you more. While Creek or someone else currently on the roster may explode, history tells us that other big ten teams win with freshman sophomores and juniors. Illinois has there five top players back next year and a 6th ranked in the country recruiting class. Ohio State while probably losing Turner and a couple of seniors still will have Buford, Diebler, Lighty and Lauderdale back with the 2nd ranked class in the nation. Of Michigan States top seven scorers this year they have one senior and they have the 7th ranked recruiting class in the country.. We have two three star players coming who are not highly ranked. If we get 8 really solid players on the roster who can compete with this level of talent we can hold our own otherwise we need a five star player to come in and make the difference and put us over the top. ( Not Bracey Wright someone who fits the system )

    I've been told we may see DSR w/ teammate Terone Johnson at the IU game tomorrow night. I gotta say that
    1. Terones a monster, started the Marion County game 7-7 for North Centrals first 19 points I believe, I think he can be better than Etwaun. Hate PU but gotta show some love to an under the radar Indy kid.
    2. IU has a chance to land a great 2012 class, and after the last couple games of film I've seen, DSR has played incredbile and I think that if he can be the centerpiece of that class IU will be fine in the future.

  • AndrewWilson

    Thanks ill look them up
