Trending Now: IU basketball notes


NUMBERS GAME
10: Number of times multiple Hoosiers have been named All-Americans in the same season after Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo were honored by the USBWA this week.
19: Number of years since Indiana last reach Sweet 16 in consecutive seasons – 1993 and ’94.
87.3: Percentage of No. 1 seeds who reach Sweet 16. IU won the national title in 1987 and lost in regional final in 1993, the only two previous times it was seeded first.

RECRUIT WATCH
COLLIN HARTMAN, 6-6, F, Indianapolis (Cathedral), 2013: Contributed 12 points and 10 rebounds to the Irish cause in a 74-53 Class 4A semistate win over Jeffersonville, setting up a rematch with Carmel in the state title game. The Greyhounds won, 60-54, on Jan. 9, but after losing its next game to Detroit Romulus, Cathedral started what is now a 19-game win streak.
LARRYN BROOKS, 5-5, G, Madison Central (Richmond, Ky.), 2013: Scored 16 of her 19 points after halftime, but missed the potential game-winning shot at the end of regulation as the Indians lost in overtime to Notre Dame in the Kentucky girls’ Sweet 16 in Bowling Green last Thursday.
TAYLOR AGLER, 5-9, G, Olentangy Orange (Westerville, Ohio), 2013: Finished with 19 points, five rebounds and five assists in a 73-63 state semifinal loss to two-time defending champion Twinsburg last Friday at Value City Arena in Columbus.

SENIOR CLASS
Indiana’s Jordan Hulls is in a nip and tuck battle with The Citadel’s Mike Groselle for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. Fan voting remains open until Monday at www.seniorclassaward.com. Groselle currently leads the way with 32.8 percent of the vote, while Hulls is second with 30.8 percent. Bucknell’s Mike Muscala is third at 10.6 percent.

The award, designed to honor Division I student-athletes in the areas of community, classroom, character and competition, is voted on by fans, as well as coaches and national media. Each of the 10 finalists is assigned points based on their finish in each of the three groups. The points are totaled and a winner determined, which will be announced during the Final Four on CBS.

BOOK WORMS
Former Herald-Times sports editor Bob Hammel will conduct a book signing, sponsored by IU Lifelong Learning, this Saturday from 10 a.m.-noon at the Fountain Square Mall atrium in downtown Bloomington, Hammel will be signing copies of “The Power of Negative Thinking,” his recent collaboration with former Indiana coach Bob Knight. Copies of the book will be on sale at the event.

INVITATION ONLY
The eight-team field has been set for the fifth annual National High School Invitational (NHSI) boys’ high school basketball tournament. There will be a Hoosier flavor this year with Stan Robinson playing for No. 1 and unbeaten Findlay Prep (34-0), while Troy Williams will be on hand with No. 19 Oak Hill (33-5).

The event, which takes place April 4-6 at Georgetown Preparatory School in Bethesda, Md., will be televised by ESPN.

    I went to see Hartman play at Semi-State, and I must say that I’m not impressed. Hopefully he really grows as a ball-player between now and stepping on campus.

    Jeremy, I have heard the same from several people. Don’t see how he’s gonna contribute at IU when he can’t dominate or even contribute all that much at the high school level! Does anyone think he is more like a preferred walk-on type player? Listen I know he can shoot and ya’ll are thinking he could be the next Matt Roth but he’s not even close to that level of shooting now and he’s not as quick as old Matt. Reminds me of Austin Etherington just not as good a shooter, not as quick, and not as athletic.

    It’ll be interesting to see. I haven’t seen much on Hartman except what’s updated here. But he seems to be posting similar numbers to many of our other recruits. The only one with eye-popping stats is Blackmon, which suits me just fine. I’d much prefer a program with 2-3 blue chip recruits per year, as well as guys who can develop and play an important role down the road. (see Oladipo, Victor.) That way we’re not rolling the dice as much with “talent” and having to reload every year.

    Hartman is sort of an enigma for me. He’s got a little more size than Roth or Etherington and better on the boards than those guys, but to be on the floor he’s got to be a lights out shooter, which I’ve seen in very short bursts but not as consistently as necessary. But I think it’s there, and that will be what IU ultimately needs. Only time will tell, though.

    I was also at the Semi-state game. Hartman looked as though he wasn’t sure what his role was. At 6-6 he was bigger than any of the Jeff players but settled for 3-point shots all evening. Several of his shots were rushed. A couple were even of the head-scratching variety where he would heave up an off-balance baseline shot while jumping sideways or backwards. Jeff’s quickness really bothered him which could pose a big problem at the next level. I’ll just have to trust coach on this one, but I just don’t see it.
