Indiana’s Victor Oladipo has gone from relative obscurity last season to a potential lottery pick for this year’s upcoming NBA Draft. He’s been one of the most improved players in all of college basketball, and he’s a big reason IU is in play for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Second, let’s pick apart one anecdote and make comments...
It should have been a big night for the Indiana Hoosiers. For the first time in 20 years they were going to win a conference championship. It was senior night as well; last game of the regular season in front of the home crowd. Their opponent on the night was tough; ranked, but the Hoosiers had beaten every ranked team they played this season.
So everything as looking good on...
Only nine days remain until Selection Sunday and with losses in two of its last three games, Indiana has an important stretch on the horizon if it hopes to open NCAA Tournament play as a No. 1 seed.
