The Charlotte Hornets selected Indiana freshman Noah Vonleh with the 9th pick in the 2014 NBA draft this evening.

Vonleh was second Big Ten player selected in this year’s draft (Michigan’s Nik Stauskas went No. 8 to Sacramento) and his selection means that Indiana has had three lottery picks in the past two seasons.

He’ll join Cody Zeller, the No. 4 pick in last year’s draft and a second team All-Rookie selection this past season, in Charlotte.

Vonleh averaged 11.3 points and 9.0 rebounds per game last season and was named Big Ten freshman of the year for the Hoosiers, who finished 17-15 and missed the postseason.

  • Correct.

  • Totally agree!

  • No way.

  • Those improvement are rarely seen, as too many factors can work against the player, ala Sullinger at Ohio State.

    Haha! Woah! Easy there buddy, I was just saying I think it would be good for recruiting if top recruits saw CTC sitting next to Cody, Vic, and NV @ the NBA Draft.. If you don’t think these high school kids remember a coach sitting next to their players at the draft, you would be wrong. You responded to my comment as if you took it personally.. Are you CTC?!?!!

    Thank you guys for pointing out that other top college coaches attend the draft.. I am not sure why ForeverIU wanted to make me look like a Coach Crean basher for saying I thought it would be good for recruiting if these young high school kids saw him sitting @ the draft next to our guys the last couple years
