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...
Before Victor Oladipo was throwing down 360 dunks and solidifying himself as one of the best player’s in college basketball, he was performing covers of early 2000s R&B songs.
Here’s a video of Oladipo performing Usher’s U Got It Bad as a freshman at the inaugural Spirit of Indiana Showcase at the IU Auditorium.

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...
Back in his freshman year, Victor Oladipo announced his presence to the Indiana Hoosiers with a ballin' rendition of Usher's 'U got it bad', because why not?
Anybody who has been watching the NCAA Tournament — let’s face it, that is just about everybody — knows about Victor Oladipo‘s basketball skills. The Indiana guard and projected first-round draft pick has helped lead the Hoosiers to the Sweet 16 after a regular season in which he averaged 13.6 points while shooting a blistering .594 from the field and .433 on 3-pointers...
The Hoosiers closed out Sunday’s win against Temple with a 10-0 run which sealed a 58-52 victory.
It was both defense and offense during that run which has them heading to Washington D.C. A close look at two defensive stops and Victor Oladipo’s 3-pointer in the latest edition of Film Session:
Nursing a two-point lead, Temple bleeds some clock in this possession. Rahlir...
This season’s Sweet Sixteen field is one of the most intriguing I can remember. I have a legitimate interest in all eight of the games. Tonight begins with most of the top seeds going against each other, and a battle of Cinderellas thrown in. Some of the storylines to watch are, can Jim Larranaga recapture the magic he found in 2006 in the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 when he was last...
Oladipo should definitely stick to basketball, but I give him props for even attempting this. The Kid has a lot of personality and I like that in young players. Have some fun, you only live once.
The Big Lead provides the video of Oladipo, covering Usher “U Got it Bad” in 2011, at the inaugural Spirit of Indiana Showcase.
When I project Victor Oaldipo into the NBA, I see Aaron...
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...
Nineteen turnovers. Sixteen baskets. A season-low 50 points.
Top-seed Indiana had no answer for the 2-3 zone of Syracuse, and now the Hoosiers are heading home after a 61-50 loss Thursday night bounced them from the NCAA tournament.
The Hoosiers (29-7) played against many strong defensive teams in Big Ten - none of which hounded them as well as Syracuse.
The perception making the rounds lately is that college basketball needs more sexy. The game's too boring; the coaches are too controlling; the best players never hang around for more than a year or two.
In this view, a team like Florida Gulf Coast, with its Dunk City meme and its historic Sweet 16 run, is the antidote to un-sexy basketball. So is a team like Indiana (the resurgence...
WASHINGTON — Indiana saw just about everything imaginable in the Big Ten this season.
But not quite.
“We don’t see a lot of 2-3 zone like this,” guard Jordan Hulls said of Syracuse. “They’re very long, very athletic, they close out to balls a lot faster than what we’ve seen, even on film.”
The Hoosiers will finally get a look at the Syracuse zone that gets talked...
Sunday afternoon’s game had so much too it, it was difficult to digest it all immediately after the game. Especially when a late March snowstorm was staring right at the greater Dayton area.
So, after more than 24 hours to think about and analyze the Hoosiers’ 58-52 win over Temple, and how they got there, I took a look at the game in a much more complete way.
First, when I said...
Every year the Naismith Award is awarded to the best men’s and women’s college basketball player that season and is considered the greatest individual honor a college basketball player can earn.
We had a chance to get some time with Clark Kellogg today to chat about a few things, specifically about the Naismith Award candidates which were recently announced; they are Michigan...
