Tom Pritchard looks to pass the ball against Minnesota. Chris Howell | Herald-Times
With the season complete and the offseason officially started for the 2010-11 Indiana Hoosiers, The Hoosier Scoop will have a breakdown of each individual player’s season and what he needs to focus on during the offseason. The fourth player in the series is sophomore guard Maurice Creek. PREVIOUSLY: Christian Watford, Verdell Jones, Jordan Hulls and Maurice Creek.
2010-11 STATS: 2.5 points (59 percent FG, 34.8 percent FT) and 3.8 rebounds a game. Twenty-three blocks, 94 personal fouls.
WHAT WENT RIGHT: There’s a pretty reasonable case to be made that the 2010-11 season was a success for Tom Pritchard, even if his 2.5 points and 3.8 rebounds a game average say “role player” more than “started 22 games.” But Pritchard was the one big man that had the body to bang down low and was also capable of doing things like setting screens — perhaps the most important role of the 5 in Indiana’s dribble penetration offense.
He made big plays when it counted or stood out — the tip-in to beat Illinois, the amazing put-back dunk against Minnesota — but the vast majority of Pritchard’s production came as the forgotten conduit to everyone else having success. That’s an integral role on a basketball team, and Pritchard seemed willing to accept such a role.
