2010s Assembly Call / Inside The Hall IU players round-robin tournament: Round One

  • 05/15/2020 9:30 am in

The players have been selected, the teams have been formed and the voting can now commence in round one of the 2010s Assembly Call / Inside The Hall IU players round-robin tournament.

Earlier this week, the results of the 2010s Assembly Call / Inside The Hall IU players draft were revealed to the public. This came in both audio and visual form with a post breaking down the draft on Inside The Hall as well as with the release of this week’s episode of Podcast on the Brink.

Now, the fate of the teams drafted by Alex Bozich, Cameron Drummond, Jerod Morris and Dylan Wallace are in the hands of you, the IU basketball fan.

Using the eight-player teams drafted, a round-robin tournament will commence with all teams playing each other once. At the end of all three rounds, we’ll take a look at the tournament table and see whose team is victorious, and if any tie-breaking measures like an extra matchup are necessary.

*NOTE* Players were drafted as the “ideal IU version” of that player. So De’Ron Davis is De’Ron prior to his Achilles injury. Maurice Creek is Maurice prior to his injuries, etc.

Tournament results are determined by a fan vote on Inside The Hall’s Twitter page, in similar fashion to The Greatest IU Basketball Player of All-Time Bracket.

Because there’s a bit more to chew on here in terms of hypothetical matchups between players (Ex: How Trayce Jackson-Davis would fare defensively against Cody Zeller), the voting window for each matchup will be two days, or 48 hours long.

Each post announcing the next round of the tournament will include information about how teams fared in the last round, along with an updated look at the standings.
