Staying Impact: With Cody Zeller, the Hoosiers are’s very early preseason No. 1 for 2012-13. In the statement Zeller released announcing his return, he said that his experience at IU “has exceeded my expectations,” and he exceeded almost everyone’s expectations as a freshman, emerging as one of the college game’s most efficient big men — one who made crafty plays well beyond his years. He ranked the highest of any returnee in Ken Pomeroy’s POY formula and should be a frontrunner (along with Creighton’s Doug McDermott) for the Wooden and Naismith Awards.
