2010s Assembly Call / Inside The Hall IU players round-robin tournament recap
Welcome to the final recap of the 2010s Assembly Call / Inside The Hall IU players round-robin tournament.
As a reminder, players were drafted for the tournament based on 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 were 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. The voting window for each matchup lasted 48 hours.
