Inside the Hall:
Indiana sophomore seven-footer Cody Zeller pumped in 22 points in Monday night’s win against North Dakota State.
A look at four scores where the big man flashed his offensively versatility outside the low post in the latest edition of Film Session.
Zeller jostles for position down low as Jordan Hulls looks to get the ball into him:
Zeller gets around in front of Marshall Bjorkland and receives an entry pass from Jordan Hulls:
Zeller gets the ball just a few feet in front of the 3-point line and faces up as Bjorkland gives him a decent amount of space:
He takes the jumper and hits:
We heard a lot about Zeller playing more of a perimeter game at times heading into the season, and here was our first example of it in the young 2012-13 campaign.
Off a set inbounds play, Hulls passes to Victor Oladipo as Zeller immediately heads to the ball:
Zeller sets a pick for Oladipo:
He rolls to the hoop and gets a feed from him:

BEST OF MAXIM
The No. 1 ranked Indiana Hoosiers may have the nation’s best player in Sophomore superstar Cody Zeller, and may have a steller returning group including Jordan Hulls, Victor Oladipo, Will Sheehey, and Christian Watford, but a Freshman Point Guard named Yogi may be the missing puzzle piece that pushes them to a sixth banner. The [...]

A lot of basketball coaches love chewing gum. Some of my fondest memories from college involve Jim Calhoun aggressively chewing on a piece of gum in an attempt to stop himself from chewing out a UConn player. Apparently Indiana coach Tom Crean is also a gum-chewer. In fact, chewing gum during games is so important to him that he’s willing to pop a piece in his mouth after dropping...
Inside the Hall had the opportunity to speak with CBS Sports lead college basketball analyst Clark Kellogg on Wednesday afternoon to preview the upcoming season with a heavy emphasis on the Hoosiers.
Kellogg is touring on behalf of the Capital One Cup, which awards a combined $400,000 annually to the best men’s and best women’s Division I athletics programs in the country for...
It seemed only fitting that Jordan Hulls would achieve a scoring milestone by knocking down a 3-pointer. It’s Hulls’ signature shot, after all, and a shot he’s been able to focus on even more this season with the addition of Yogi Ferrell.
In Thursday night’s 99-45 win against Sam Houston State, Hulls knocked down an open 3 from the top of the key to record his 1,000th-point...
Less than a week after being named to the preseason top 50 list for the John Wooden Award, Indiana senior Christian Watford and sophomore Cody Zeller find themselves on another preseason award watch.
The Naismith Award, given annually to the top player nationally in men’s basketball, announced Tuesday morning that Watford and Zeller are two of seven Big Ten players receiving early...
Indiana is expected to have one of the nation's biggest and best recruiting classes.
Purdue coach Matt Painter thinks he got just what he needed with the three recruits he signed Wednesday morning.
On the first day of the early signing period, the Boilermakers signed guard Bryson Scott and forward Basil Smotherman, both in-state recruits, and shooting guard Kendall Stephens...
Tweet Indiana University head men’s basketball coach Tom Crean must be fond of the five second rule, because he had no problem eating a piece of gum that he dropped on the court Thursday: That’s just gross. The Hoosiers easily defeated Sam Houston State 99-45, with one low-light courtesy of their head coach. -ALR
Indiana senior Christian Watford (23 points, six rebounds), senior Jordan Hulls (10 points, five assists and five rebounds) and junior Will Sheehey (18 points, five rebounds) met with the media following the Hoosiers’ 99-45 win over Sam Houston State on Thursday night at Assembly Hall.
Watch and listen to the press conference in the embedded media player below:
Thoughts on a 99-45 win over the Bearkats:
I. Indiana breezed through their first two regular season contests, but tonight was just another level. Unlike the first two wins that started a little slow, Indiana was all gas, no brakes from the start here and this thing reached blowout territory before the halftime buzzer even sounded. It was, to quote the great offensive cliché, a...
Tom Crean joined Mike Greenburg and Mark Schlereth on “Mike and Mike in the Morning” on ESPN Radio on Wednesday and talked about a variety of topics, including Jim and John Harbaugh, the rebuilding process at Indiana, the Big Handsome nickname for Cody Zeller, upcoming games in the Legends Classic and more.
Here’s a transcript of some of what Crean had to say:
Jim and John...
Indiana junior Will Sheehey, junior Victor Oladipo and assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Kenny Johnson met with the media Wednesday to preview Thursday’s game at Assembly Hall with Sam Houston State.
Watch and listen to all three press conferences in the embedded media players below:
Signing day is finally here.
All six recruits from IU’s class of 2013 are expected to ink their national letters of intent during the early signing period and formally commit to play for the Hoosiers next season.
To break it all down, ITH founder Alex Bozich joins hosts Matt Dollinger and Greg Rosenstein for this week’s show.
Among the topics discussed this week:
· A closer...
When Tom Crean arrived in Bloomington in April of 2008, his to-do list grew almost immediately after he was announced as the Indiana University basketball men’s basketball coach.
The rubble left in the aftermath of the Kelvin Sampson era, which can be best characterized as a program-crippling debacle, was larger than even Crean could have imagined.
But unlike the previous two coaches...
