Found December 03, 2012 on Inside the Hall:
Tom Crean was out recruiting on Monday night, so assistant coach Tim Buckley along with Cody Zeller and Yogi Ferrell filled in for him on his weekly radio show with Don Fischer. Here were some of the more interesting topics and tidbits discussed: · Jordan Hulls led culture change: Buckley said he regularly receives phone calls from people who say they have a player he needs to see. When Buckley asks them to describe the player, they often say: “Well, he’s like Jordan Hulls.” Buckley said he usually chuckles at such assertions. “They might look like Jordan Hulls,” he said. “But that kid’s in the gym two to three times a day in addition to what is required. He’s really set the tone here. When we wanted to get the culture right, he really led the charge with that.” · The impact of Sheeladipo: Buckley also talked about how important both Victor Oladipo and Will Sheehey have been through the first eight games of the season. Oladipo has been in double figures in each of the Hoosiers’ last si

Oladipo’s deflection record guides Hoosiers

Indiana couldn’t buy a basket. The No. 1 Hoosiers didn’t look anything like the team that carefully demolished North Carolina on Tuesday night. It wasn’t necessarily that the energy or effort was lacking, but the Hoosiers struggled to get anything going in what turned into a sloppy first half. As soon as the second 20 minutes began, Victor Oladipo changed all that. The junior...

Indiana, Duke still 1-2 in AP Top 25

Indiana, Duke and Michigan remained the top three teams in The Associated Press' college basketball poll. Look all the way to the bottom and you won't see Kentucky's name for the first time since John Calipari became coach of the Wildcats. Indiana, which has been No. 1 since the preseason poll, saw its lead over Duke shrink a little bit. The Hoosiers (8-0) received 45...

Hoosiers, Devils still 1-2, but 'Cats out

Coppin State fades in loss to No. 1 Indiana

Coppin State's first-ever game against a No. 1 team started off better than might have been expected. The Eagles kept Indiana's preseason All-American Cody Zeller in check, and led for much of the first half on Saturday night against the No. 1 Hoosiers. ''I think the zone slowed them down some,'' Coppin State coach Ron ''Fang'' Mitchell said...

Examining the Big Ten’s best at the quarter turn

With nearly a quarter of the season in the books, it’s time to examine the Big Ten’s best thus far in 2012-2013: Best player – Cody Zeller, Indiana Truth be told, Zeller’s numbers have fallen in line fairly closely with how he finished up last season. He’s currently averaging 15.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and is shooting over 64 percent from the field. There’s...

The Minute After: Coppin State

Thoughts on an 87-51 win over Coppin State: I. The Georgia game had its share of ugliness, but this one — the first ten minutes, at least — wasn’t pretty. Indiana missed shots (a Will Sheehey airball, an 0-9 start) and turned the ball over (eight turnovers in the first 10:35). Coppin State’s 2-3 zone had the Hoosiers out of sorts in the halfcourt and the Eagles didn’t surrender...
