My IU review for the Hoosiers’ game with Evansville.
Indiana’s Jamonne Chester ready when opportunity arose, Dustin wrote.
Obviously, the recruiting websites — Peegs, 247Sports, Scout, etc. — were ahead of us on this, but as you know, IU has added three junior college commitments in the last 48 hours or so. My story for tomorrow’s paper follows:
Kevin Wilson has taken a number of questions — from media members and fans — about his philosophy on recruiting junior college transfers.
The first year Indiana coach has said repeatedly he sees high school players as more valuable than junior college players, simply because they have four years of remaining eligibility. But he will recruit a junior college player, he said, to fill a specific need.
Recent days have shown that Wilson realizes he has a lot of needs. (more…)
My alarm decided to malfunction this morning, thus changing Hoosier Morning into Hoosier Brunch, at least for today. Also, apologies go out to people on the IU Sports Chat for my absence. I swear, sometimes I’m just a narcolept.

The clouds begin to part for IU as the Hoosiers get their first road win, I wrote.
New Hoosiers come up Aces against Evansville, Dustin wrote.
We’ll be here.
EVANSVILLE — Five Indiana players scored in double figures and the Hoosiers shot 55.9 percent from the field, pummeling Evanville 94-73 in the brand new Ford Center.
Senior guard Verdell Jones led the Hoosiers with 17 points and seven assists, making all four of his 3-pointers for a career-high in that category. Junior swingman Christian Watford shook off a combined 3-for-14 performance in his first two games this season with 15 points and eight rebounds, making five of his seven field goals.
Junior guard Jordan Hulls had 14 points and sophomore swingman Will Sheehey added 10, but Jones pointed out that the key to the evening was still the attention drawn by freshman forward Cody Zeller. The Washington native finished with 14 points on 6-for-7 shooting and nine rebounds.
“It was great,” Jones said. “You couldn’t key on one guy. I think it all started with getting the ball to the big fella right here in Cody. He was just making plays. They were double-teaming and he was kicking it and we were driving and kicking it. It was good thing to have Cody command a double team like that.” (more…)
