2017 NBA Draft: Lakers select Thomas Bryant 42nd overall

2017 NBA Draft: Lakers select Thomas Bryant 42nd overall

Former Indiana Hoosier Thomas Bryant is heading to the NBA and bringing his 7’6” wingspan with him. After a sophomore season of averaging 12.6 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 1.5 assists per game, Thomas Bryant has been selected by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 42nd pick in the draft. Much like his former teammate OG Anunoby, who was selected earlier in the night by, Bryant’s selection by the Lakers seems to be largely based upon potential. This potential directly stems from Bryant’s size and versatility, as the former Hoosier center spent last season shooting 38.8 percent from...

2017 NBA Draft: Raptors select OG Anunoby 23rd overall

2017 NBA Draft: Raptors select OG Anunoby 23rd overall

Former Indiana Hoosier OG Anunoby will be bringing his incredible size and athleticism to the NBA in the near future. With the 23rd pick in the draft, the Toronto Raptors selected former Indiana forward OG Anunoby. The 6’7” 232 pound athlete follows a similar pattern to most taken in this draft, as Anunoby was taken as high as he was mostly based upon potential. Anunoby is a player that has always shown spurts of greatness, providing athleticism at the rim and defensive versatility that fits the NBA like a glove. The biggest question mark surrounding Anunoby coming into this draft was...

2017 NBA Draft Profile: OG Anunoby

2017 NBA Draft Profile: OG Anunoby

An injury-shortened sophomore year leaves lots of questions about OG Anunoby. Which GM will decide to take a risk on him? Name: OG Anunoby Height: 6’7” Weight: 232 pounds Stats: 11.1 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.3 steals, 31.1% 3PT, 70.1% FG Teams Visited: Trailblazers Overview: Perhaps no top prospect in the draft is more of a question mark than OG Anunoby. A remarkably small sample size in his freshman year paired with a abruptly-shortened sophomore year leaves as much intrigue as it does unanswered questions. What we know is that Anunoby is an elite athlete. Any fan who has...

ESPN’s Jeff Goodman tweets that the Hoosiers will welcome another elite ACC team into Assembly Hall for the second year in a row. Well would you look at that: Duke will play at Indiana in this year’s Big Ten-ACC Challenge, source told ESPN. Matchups scheduled to be released later today.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) June 8, 2017 While prognostications for Indiana in Archie Miller’s first year are all over the map and slanted toward pessimistic, it didn’t stop ESPN from pairing them up with Duke for what will likely be one of the most hyped games of the made-for-TV event.

Indiana Football week 4 preview: Georgia Southern’s offense will try to beat the Hoosiers on the ground

Indiana Football week 4 preview: Georgia Southern’s offense will try to beat the Hoosiers on the ground

The Hoosiers will try to slow down the Eagles’ rushing attack when they come to Bloomington Coming off a 5-7 record last season, the Eagles will be looking to improve and possibly earn a bowl berth. Last season, the Georgia Southern offense tied for the 100th most yards in the country with 4,558. The Eagles also had the 78th highest scoring offense in the FBS, putting up 27 points per game. Passing Game Georgia Southern ranked 120th in the country last season in passing offense with 1,868 yards which might be because the Eagles’ passing game wasn’t exactly traditional last season....

Indiana Football week 4 preview: Can Georgia Southern’s defense match up with the Hoosier offense?

Indiana Football week 4 preview: Can Georgia Southern’s defense match up with the Hoosier offense?

With no household names on the defense, how do the Eagles stack up as a unit? In the final nonconference game of IU’s schedule, Indiana will face off against the Georgia Southern Eagles for the first time ever. This game would likely be the last opportunity for Mike DeBord to tune up his defense before getting into the main stretch of Big Ten games. But what kind of defense should the Hoosiers expect from Georgia Southern? Well, it should appear to be somewhat average, based on 2016 statistics. The Eagles allowed 4759 yards last season which puts them at 55th best in the nation....

2017 Indiana Football: The defensive line may be the weakest link

2017 Indiana Football: The defensive line may be the weakest link

Indiana’s defensive line returns some key contributors but there is still room for improvement. Well, shit. This is a collective “well, shit” for Indiana football fans of course, as our breakdown of the Hoosiers’ 2017 roster transitions to the defensive side of the ball. It’s no secret that defense has been the bane of many Indiana squads’ existences over the past few years. However, things are slowly starting to change in Bloomington under the guidance of defensive coordinator turned head coach Tom Allen. The defense has been getting more athletic and takeaways have become...

2017 NCAA Baseball Tournament: Indiana throttled, eliminated from Lexington regional

2017 NCAA Baseball Tournament: Indiana throttled, eliminated from Lexington regional

The Hoosiers were outclassed from the start and got blown out in Sunday’s elimination game. Whether it was the result of lingering hangover from Friday night’s letdown against North Carolina State, running out of gas, or just not being their day, Indiana’s 2017 baseball season came to a crashing halt on Sunday afternoon as the Hoosiers failed to show up for the first six innings and could not overcome the massive hole they’d dug themselves. Indiana gave up more runs against Kentucky than the program has allowed in more than five years and couldn’t get anything going offensively...

2017 NCAA Baseball Tournament: Logan Sowers powers Indiana past Ohio in 11-2 victory

2017 NCAA Baseball Tournament: Logan Sowers powers Indiana past Ohio in 11-2 victory

The Hoosiers scored in five straight innings to eliminate the Bobcats. An elimination game is when you expect your stars to shine the brightest, and on Saturday that’s exactly what happened for Indiana. Logan Sowers was a man among boys against the Ohio Bobcats, going 4-for-5 with three home runs and five RBIs and scoring four runs on his own. Jonathan Stiever was also key for the Hoosiers, throwing Indiana’s third complete game this season and allowing two runs on seven hits. Stiever also struck out four. Ohio’s offense got to Stiever early, with back-to-back singles to start the...

Recruiting Roundup: Vijay Blackmon joins the Hoosiers, IU goes Italian and Jay-Z

Recruiting Roundup: Vijay Blackmon joins the Hoosiers, IU goes Italian and Jay-Z

With #RecruitingSZN in full force, IU is making some expected noise With a couple open roster spots, Archie Miller and the Hoosiers have went into the summer not only looking at future classes, but also looking at this season. Most notably, the team welcomed Vijay Blackmon, brother of James Blackmon, to the team this summer. Many will remember the Hoosiers recruited Vijay during his early years of high school, but IU’s interest waned before Tom Crean and his staff moved on. After high school, Vijay briefly attended IMG Academy in Florida before withdrawing and returning to Indiana after a...

2017 NCAA Baseball Tournament: Hoosiers fall in extra innings NC State

2017 NCAA Baseball Tournament: Hoosiers fall in extra innings NC State

The Hoosiers drop their first regional game in a 12-inning heartbreaker     Indiana squared off with the NC State Wolfpack in the second game of the Lexington regional, and it was a roller coaster of a game that saw the Wolfpack score twice in the top of the 12th to earn a 7-6 win. The Wolfpack got on the board first with an RBI-triple to left field to make the score 1-0, but they couldn’t do any more damage as IU starter Pauly Milto struck out the next two batters to end the inning. Indiana struck back in the bottom of the first with Tony Butler, Matt Lloyd, and Luke Miller hitting...

2017 NCAA baseball tournament: Indiana needs to overcome its bullpen woes

2017 NCAA baseball tournament: Indiana needs to overcome its bullpen woes

If the Hoosiers want to make a postseason run, they’ll have to do a better job at closing games out. If you watched Indiana’s run in the Big Ten Tournament, you probably noticed the poor performance of their bullpen. But this wasn’t just a one-off issue. This has been a trend over the course of the season. The numbers that the Indiana bullpen put up this season look alright on paper. The IU bullpen has outperformed the starters in ERA, WHIP, hits per nine innings, and strikeouts per nine innings so far. If you want to truly rate the performance of the 14 relievers that made up the...

Indiana (33-22-2, 14-9-1 B1G, #26 RPI) This regional features a few very strong offenses, with Kentucky being one of the best in the country....

Hoosiers hang tough, beat Wolverines 5-4

Hoosiers hang tough, beat Wolverines 5-4

Indiana and Michigan set the record for the longest game in the history of the Big Ten Baseball Tournament in a 13 inning thriller What. A. Game. That will probably be the best game we see at BKF this week. Two very good teams just went at it for 13 innings, with momentum swinging both ways, before Indiana finally defeated Michigan 5-4. The game started off as a pitcher’s duel. Pauly Milto got the start for Indiana and Oliver Jaskie took the mound for the Wolverines. Milto pitched 5 innings, giving up 2 runs in the top of the 2nd. He also gave up 7 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3...
