Welcome to “That’s A Wrap,” our player-by-player recap of the 2012-2013 Indiana Hoosiers. Today: Christian Watford.
Watford (36 games): 12.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.4 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 43.2% FG, 48.4% 3PFG, 81.1% FT in 27.9 minutes per game.
They said Christian Watford, for all his talent and scoring ability, despite the biggest shot in Indiana hoops in some time, was too inconsistent.
Watford would disappear when he was needed — missing shot after shot during Big Ten games. His effort waxed and waned like the moon.
But in his final season in the cream and crimson, Watford shed that reputation. It didn’t start that way. He had trouble fitting into the Hoosiers’ uptempo transition style. Against North Carolina in Bloomington — perhaps the most dominant, entertaining performance by Indiana all year — Watford decided to play outside the team construct and hunt for shots. He had a dunk that looked nice, but it would be the only shot he’d make all evening (1-of-9).

Welcome to “That’s A Wrap,” our recap of the 2012-2013 Indiana Hoosiers. Today: Head coach Tom Crean.
Tom Crean knew the Indiana job would be a challenge when he accepted it some five years ago. He had to rebuild the program from the very bottom, and he successfully restored it to a place where the Hoosiers could be the No. 1 ranked team in the preseason.
What Crean has accomplished...
This big Hoosiers fan in a very little body is heartbroken over the fact that Cody Zeller won't be playing for Indiana anymore.
A lot of teams can be left wondering what might have been, especially those 67 teams that made the NCAA tournament and weren't named Louisville. One of those teams that has a lot of soul searching to do is the Indiana Hoosiers - a team with all the potential and yet not the desired outcome.
That may seem harsh, after all, we are talking about the Big Ten regular season...
