Inside the Hall:
Just over 24 hours after arriving in Bloomington for his official visit, 2013 New Hampton Prep (NH) forward Noah Vonleh decided he’d seen enough to make a decision.
So Vonleh, who made his first official visit with his mother, committed to the Hoosiers on Saturday night. His high school coach, Pete Hutchins, confirmed the news to Inside the Hall late Saturday night in a text message.
He’s the sixth verbal commitment in the 2013 class for the Hoosiers and the No. 8 prospect nationally according to ESPN.com.
Vonleh had also been considering Connecticut, Georgetown, North Carolina, Ohio State and Syracuse after deciding to reclassify on Sept. 24.
The 6-foot-8 forward attended IU’s season opening win over Bryant on Friday night and drew chants of “We want Noah,” from a soldout Assembly Hall crowd.
The five-star forward told ESPN.com that the intensity of IU’s pursuit was a major factor in his decision.
“From day one, Indiana has been recruiting me the hardest,” Vonleh told Adam Finkelst...
BEST OF MAXIM
The expectation became reality on Friday night when point guards Yogi Ferrell and Jordan Hulls started together in No. 1 Indiana’s season opening win against Bryant. Much has been made throughout the offseason about whether Ferrell and Hulls — both small guards — can play well enough defensively to play on the court together.
The two guards passed their first test on Friday...
While it will be hard for Indiana’s Tom Crean to land a recruit that will have a larger impact than Cody Zeller has had on the program in the last couple of years, he certainly came close Saturday night when Rivals’ #8-ranked 2013 recruit Noah Vonleh gave his verbal commitment to the Hoosiers.
The development of Cody Zeller at IU is a major selling point Tom Crean can give big...
Cody Zeller and Christian Watford gladly welcomed Bryant into the world of big-time college basketball Friday night.
It was ugly.
The 7-foot center and 6-9 forward combined for 33 points and 25 rebounds, overwhelming an undersized foe and leading No.1 Indiana to a 97-54 season-opening victory.
''One of the things is they had a huge size advantage and they have the best...
Cody Zeller had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Christian Watford had a career-high 15 boards, leading No. 1 Indiana to a 97-54 rout of Bryant in the season opener.
The Hoosiers (1-0) have won 15 consecutive openers and 28 straight home openers.
Bryant (0-1) was led by Alex Francis with 15 points and Frankie Dobbs with 12 in its first game as a full-time Division I member - and...
Five Indiana players — Cody Zeller, Yogi Ferrell, Christian Watford, Jordan Hulls and Remy Abell — met with the media following the Hoosiers’ 97-54 dismantling of Bryant on Friday night at Assembly Hall.
Watch and listen to the press conferences in the embedded media players below:
Thoughts on a 97-54 win against the Bulldogs:
I. Indiana’s lack of frontcourt depth was not an issue in this one. Bryant didn’t have much size. And the size the Bulldogs did have was dominated by Cody Zeller. Both Andrew Scocca and Vlad Kondratyev fouled out, as neither had much of a chance once Zeller got the ball on the block and went to work. When Zeller went to the bench...
Friday night, the #1-ranked Indiana Hoosiers did exactly what a #1- ranked team should do against an inferior opponent: they imposed their will and cruised to an easy victory.
But it took a little longer than some may have expected for the rout to commence. Bryant actually led 15-14 at the under-12 minute timeout in the first half. From there, Indiana went on a 40-15 run into the...
From what was considered a total rebuilding job upon taking the head coach position for the Indiana Hoosiers, Tom Crean has completely turned the program around and secured a second straight top-10 ranked national recruiting class, by taking a verbal commitment from 6-8 combo forward Noah Vonleh of New Hampton (NH). Vonleh made a weekend official [...]
Indiana athletic director Fred Glass told a soldout crowd Friday night that the school had agreed with coach Tom Crean on a two-year contract extension, keeping him with the Hoosiers through the 2019-20 season.
His base salary will increase from approximately $2.52 million per year to $3.16 million. The deal also includes performance bonuses based on Academic Progress Rate scores...
