Indiana had six players starting 9 games or more games and won 20 games. They were slotted to make the NCAA Tournament, and all six are anticipated to return. Indiana also has a recruiting class that is estimated to be in the top 30. That does not include 5* PG Lander who is likely to reclassify. Well, I predict that IU gets Lander early. But being a really young freshman he will be brought along slowly at first...maybe. But, then again, how can a coach not use a 5*? Put him in. Green is gone and D. Davis is gone, too. Good luck to those young men. Race continues to improve, gains strength, giving IU excellent options inside. If he hits from 12' out that would be a big lift. Phin gets healthier and stronger and begins to regain quickness and spark and hit his shots. Brunk is Brunk...but his hedging on defense has to be addressed. He is not quick. But means well. Maybe, he improves by going left. Any outside shooting by others and/or improved guard play will open up the offense. Al Durham may just become more steady. Smith, too. They both have to step up...each and every game. Al will learn to not let his assignment get ahead of him. Both will improve their shots...maybe. TJD will hot have to carry the load as much. But his game is going to go out the top. When IU starts hitting the outside shot and our guards play like some of the best in the B1G, then the sky may be the limit for the team and for TJD. Will TJD stretch his shot out to the 3? Defense will become better as long and smart players get experience. More transition scoring opportunities will be opened by the defense. Archie Miller has more options as his bench improves from what he inherited. IU will get another grad transfer that can hit the 3 consistently. I also predict that IU is rated early in the low to mid 20's. They will play their way, at times, into the upper teens. They end the conference season with 12 B1G wins. Regular season they have 23 wins. Seeded 6 in the NCAAT, they stay in the east and win at least the first 2 tourney games.
