    Nice interview. However, from a sarcastic standpoint, I wouldn have LOVED it if you had asked Dane what his feelings were after seeing Will Sheehey foul a three-point shooter at the end of the game, just like Dane did his senior year in the NCAA finals!

  • what coincidence–clock didn’t start–twice!

  • what coincidence–clock didn’t start–twice!

  • I woud have liked hearing Dane’s response if Zeller (which he would never have done) had said similar remarks about Nix? Only in America!

  • Dane Fife’s a Hoosier

    Awesome interview. I wonder if anyone else caught the little slip-up when he meant to say beat IU and said beat MSU instead? He’s still an IU Hoosier at heart!

  • Great job Justin!!

    Great interview. Fife is my favorite player to ever play for IU. I know, he’s an odd choice given I grew up in Indiana and can remember most teams from ’81 onwards. I just love how he accepted his role as a defender early in his career, with limited minutes, then really transformed by his senior year to a legit offensive player.

    With all that said, every interview with Fife should start, “What the heck were you thinking fouling Williams on that 3 in 2002?”
