As Syracuse overwhelmed the No. 1-seeded Hoosiers 61-50 on Thursday night, it became more evident than ever that Cody Zeller is not ready to play in the NBA. The 20-year-old Zeller, an All-Big Ten First Team choice who averaged 16.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists over 36 games, scored a measly 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting against the Orange (29-9, 11-7 Big East). Zeller, along with star teammate Victor Oladipo, would be selected somewhere in the early first round of this June’s draft. Indiana (29-7, 14-4 Big Ten) head coach Tom Crean is expected to help advise the Hoosiers … Continue reading →

Even though Indiana lost to Syracuse, Hoosiers star Cody Zeller took the high road with this 'Back-to-back Sweet 16s' shirt. Well, sort of.
WASHINGTON — An earlier than expected exit from the 2013 NCAA Tournament quickly brought questions about the futures of Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo, both of whom are projected as lottery picks in this June’s NBA Draft.
But in the immediate aftermath of IU’s disappointing 61-50 loss to Syracuse, neither player was prepared to talk about what will come next.
“I have no clue...
If you tuned in to Syracuse’s 61-50 victory over the Indiana Hoosiers in the second half you would’ve noticed Orange center Baye Keita sporting a bandage on his forehead. The video above shows you exactly why the Syracuse center needed a bandage after he landed face first on the court after attempting to block a Cody Zeller shot. The fall caused a laceration that was quickly...
In the days leading up to Indiana’s Sweet 16 game with Syracuse in the Verizon Center, much attention was paid to the health of the right shoulder of Jordan Hulls.
And that was with good reason.
After the IU senior was involved in a collision during the first half of IU’s win over Temple, he returned in the second half wearing extra support under his jersey and scored five key...
WASHINGTON — Jordan Hulls sat at his locker room in the Verizon Center, tears welling to his eyes when asked questions about the season and about his special senior class.
For four years, Hulls had dreamed of the opportunity he and his teammates had in front of them. They were a No. 1 seed, a favorite to reach the Final Four in Atlanta. All this after beginning from the very bottom...
It has been quite the journey for Indiana basketball the past five seasons, and though the program is nationally revelant once again, the group that brought them back was completely lost last night against Syracuse and their zone. The best way to stifle a fastbreak team in basketball is to slow down the game, and there is no better way of doing that than by using a defense that minimizes...
Indiana junior guard Victor Oladipo has a big decision to make in the coming weeks regarding his basketball future.
And then there were three... Thanks a lot Indiana. No seriously, we need to have a talk! What the hell was that on Thursday night against Syracuse? Really, you lose 61-50 and in reality the score is no indication of how badly you actually got beat? That was pathetic for the champion of the best conference in the country and you should all hang your heads in shame.
ESPN anchor, friend of the blog (if you can even call this a blog anymore), and all around good guy Anish Shroff has a very special preview/prediction for the Sweet Sixteen which starts tonight.His dog Lola picked every game......including the Orange to beat the hated Indiana Hoosiers tonight. That's one fine dog you've got there Mr. Shroff. Very fine indeed. Go Orange.
Solid showing by Indiana last night, huh? The Hoosiers laid a complete egg, shooting 20% from three point range and 34% o…

The East is the only bracket where all top 4 seed remain. Check out my breakdown below.
Top 5 Players
1.Shane Larkin (Miami)- With the Canes down late to Illinois, Larkin hit a clutch three and then he lead Miami to victory down the stretch.
2. Cody Zeller (Indiana)- He is the best running big man in the country, look for him to have a big game in finding holes in the Syracuse zone...
