Troy Williams signs partially-guaranteed deal with Grizzlies

After a impressive Summer League with the Phoenix Suns, Troy Williams reportedly has agree to a partially-guaranteed deal with the Memphis Grizzlies. Undeterred from a poor NBA Draft combine, Troy Williams stayed in the NBA Draft this season and, although not being drafted, looked impressive in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Now, Williams has turned that performance into a partially-guaranteed deal with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to David Pick.

Why Rutgers and Purdue make the most sense as Big 12 expansion candidates

We'd like to nominate two dark horses for the conference expansion sweepstakes! This is a very serious blog post on a very serious web site. "Will they or won't they?" love subplots have gripped a nation of TV watchers for years. Ross and Rachel. Jim and Pam. Ted and Robin. The Big 12 Conference and Expansion. Much like the other examples, the last one appears to finally be ending in happy matrimony soon. And two lucky schools soon may bring the Big 12 back up to its name, with 12 teams instead of the 10 they have now. Eight candidates have emerged as prime contenders for these two...

Former Indiana stars advance to Super 16, seek $2 Million prize in The Basketball Tournament

Jordan Hulls, Will Sheehey, and Christian Watford have again led Armored Athlete to TBT's Super 16 In its third year of existence, The Basketball Tournament continues to grow as it seeks to save us from the doldrums of the late-summer sports calendar. What started as a $500,000 winner-take-all tournament in 2014 doubled to $1 million last year and doubled again to $2 million this year. As the prize has increased, so too has the talent level of the competitors. The defending champs, Overseas Elite, boast a roster full of former college stars playing overseas (as the name would suggest). City...

Recruiting Roundup: A lot of things happening, and also nothing at all

Indiana has only one commit for next year. Not only is the sky not falling in Bloomington, but it's an ideal spot to be in for the class of 2017. It's been a little while since we've delved into the nitty gritty of Indiana's recruiting efforts, and while mostly that's due to my laziness, that's not entirely the case. Around this time of year when the only news is recruiting news, pretty much everything you hear from a "BREAKING NEWS" article is that a recruit is "interested in School X" and/or  "plan to take a visit to School Y in the future". While that *may* be true, it's really not...

Will Northwestern become the second Chicago team to choke this October?

Indiana starts the second half of its 2016 season at a place Kevin Wilson is very familiar with. Each week until the start of football season, we'll be going through Indiana's opponents one by one and looking at whatever we find interesting and/or hilarious about them.

5-star 2017 F Michael Porter commits to Washington

The #5 ranked player in the class of 2017 makes the call to stay in the family at Washington. Just like that, a major name is off the board for the class of 2017.  Michael Porter, an almost-surefire lock to be a lottery pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, decided on where he will be playing his college ball tonight. Michael Porter just verbally committed to Washington. No. 5 player in the 2017 class. — Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) July 15, 2016 Porter had heavy interest from almost every major program, however Indiana had seemed to stick around with some good selling points, considering...

Is Indiana really "under pressure" to get in-state recruits?

Our annual reminder that we don't care where IU basketball recruits come form, as long as they are good fits for the team and can play well. Look, I get it. The college hoops offseason is long, and you have to keep that content churning. So when I see articles like this one, I understand that it's not written with bad intentions. It's just part of the grind of keeping the content flowing and #narratives afloat throughout the year. That being said, it's long past time to say that the success of Indiana basketball does not rely on recruits from the state of Indiana. This article states that...

Examining Victor Oladipo and his new role with the Thunder

After being traded, then seeing his star teammate leave, Victor Oladipo has had one hectic summer. However, the new Oklahoma City guard may have landed in a great situation. While there were many shocking deals this summer in the NBA off-season, one of the most surprising involved Indiana University alumni Victor Oladipo, who was dealt to the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of a blockbuster deal involving Thunder big man Serge Ibaka. Oladipo's time in Orlando was an up-and-down one. After making the All-Rookie team in his first season spending time both as a shooting guard and a point guard,...

Indiana's presumptive starting running back is getting some preseason recognition after a strong close to the 2015 season in which he totaled over 500 yards in his last three games.

Simmie Cobbs and Ricky Jones appear on the Biletnikoff Award Watch List

Indiana's top two wideouts appear on the watch list for the nation's best wide receiver, along with roughly 6000 others. Watch lists are what they are. No, they don't have an impact on the final award and no, they aren't particularly prestigious given how many names appear on the list every year. But as we slog through the summer waiting for football kick off, we'll take any morsel of validation that we can get. Simmie Cobbs, Ricky Jones both on Biletnikoff Award Watch List. Only one other Big Ten team, Nebraska, has two players on the list. #iufb — Zach Osterman (@ZachOsterman) July 13,...

Vermont transfer & Carmel native Zach McRoberts will join Indiana basketball as walk-on

Josh McRoberts' little brother averaged 4 points and 4 rebounds a game as a freshman at Vermont, before leaving the team and transferring to Indiana after the 2015 season. After a year of playing basketball in the HPER, Tom Crean will add a name most Indiana basketball fans should recognize for the 2016-17 season. Zach McRoberts, a former Indiana All-Star at Carmel and brother of soon-to-be 10-year NBA vet Josh McRoberts, will join up with the Indiana basketball program this summer. A member of the well-known Indiana Elite AAU program, McRoberts went east after high school, playing just one...

Yogi Ferrell inks deal to play Summer League with the Brooklyn Nets and that's a great call by him.

After going undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft, Indiana's all-time assist leader will spend the summer trying to prove he belongs in the world's best league. Despite prognostications that Yogi Ferrell would be taken in the early-to-mid 2nd round of this year's NBA Draft, sixty picks came and went without his name being called. While hearing your name called on draft night is a dream for almost all collegiate players, the fact of the matter is that after the first 40 or so picks, it's probably better to just go undrafted and collaborate with your agent to find the best situation for you to...

Troy Williams to join Phoenix Suns Summer League team

The swingman went undrafted, but quickly found a landing spot. Recently departed IU forward and resident enigma Troy Williams has found a job. Williams chose to leave Indiana a year early to enter the draft, but as some expected he went undrafted last night, and has landed with the Phoenix Suns. According to the official IU basketball Twitter account, he'll be joining the Suns' summer league team. Before y'all decimate the comments with Hot Takes on how this proves Troy shouldn't have left, don't. The dude is who he is, and probably wasn't going to do a lot better than this unless he went...
