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 forward Derek Elston. PREVIOUSLY: Christian Watford, Verdell Jones, Jordan Hulls, Maurice Creek,Tom Pritchard and Derek Elston.
2010-11 STATS: 4.8 PPG (48.4 percent FG, 30.4 3pt, 64.9 FT), 2.1 rebounds, 12 assists, 14 steals.
WHAT WENT RIGHT: Admittedly, I did not expect much of Will Sheehey during his freshman season. Because Indiana did not really begin pursuing him until well into the fall, we did not get the opportunity to watch him during the spring and summer AAU season. Therefore, we went off what we could: some Internet scouting reports and a high school game televised on ESPN.
Therefore, Sheehey’s contributions to Indiana this season was a mild surprise: he started several games, was clearly part of the rotation and showed a knack for defending multiple positions. He was aggressive on offense — as Iowa’s Melsahn Basabe can attest to — and made plays on both ends because of hard work and hustle. That’s a huge trait, one that will always be valuable to the Indiana program. You simply cannot teach effort, and Sheehey (and fellow freshman Victor Oladipo) were certainly not in need of a course in it.
