Inside the Hall:
For the third straight year, Tom Crean will bring a McDonald’s All-American to Bloomington.
Cody Zeller was Crean’s first McDonald’s All-American in 2011 and Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell was selected in 2012. The latest Indiana signee to get the prestigious nod is Noah Vonleh.
Vonleh will be on the East roster and is the only Big Ten recruit in the game. The 24-man roster was announced on Thursday evening.
For the third consecutive year, the game will be played at the United Center in Chicago. It will tip-off at 9:30 ET on ESPN.
“As talented and as skilled as he is, that upside, it’s hard to imagine it,” Crean said of Vonleh in December. “He’s incredibly unselfish. They can give him the ball at the top of the key in a 1-4 set, and he’ll deliver the ball. He’s like Cody in that he doesn’t look for his offense nearly enough. He’s another one of those young guys we have here who is untapped in the sense that they have no idea how good they can be.”

A look at the numbers: Watford has scored in double figures in all 12 Big Ten games, and in 15 straight games overall. During that stretch, he’s pulled down at least eight rebounds on eight occasions, and he...
Thoughts on a 76-47 win against the Cornhuskers:
Sometimes, it just happens. You throw everything into an effort like the Hoosiers did against Ohio State on Sunday, and then you head home for a game against a Big Ten bottom feeder and the crowd is late to arrive and quiet, and you just come out flat. And so this was Indiana to start the evening: Playing down to the competition. Save...
Coming on the heels of perhaps the most impressive performance a Tom Crean IU team has had, the Hoosiers came out a little sluggish tonight. It’s understandable.
But an early second half explosion, keyed by Victor Oladipo hustle (go figure), got the Hoosiers going. They ultimately took care of business at home over Nebraska, 76-47.
Cody Zeller had a strong second half and led the...
On Wednesday at 7:00 ET, the top-ranked Indiana Hoosiers (21-3, 9-2 B10) return home to face the Nebraska Cornhuskers (12-12, 3-8 B10) on the Big Ten Network.
