Hoosiers outrun St. Joseph’s

Tom Crean pushed his team at practice and asked it to push the tempo Monday night against St. Joseph’s.

His team responded, routing the Pumas 95-67 in front of 15,289 fans at Assembly Hall in the Hoosiers second exhibition game of the season.

The Pumas were never really close. Indiana led 48-33 at halftime and kept pouring it on the rest of the way. The Hoosiers held St. Joe’s to 25-for-77 shooting (32.5 percent) including an abysmal 3-for-25 from beyond the 3-point arc.

The Hoosiers, meanwhile scored easily and often in transition. They shot 55.8 percent from the field, scored 20 points on fast breaks and had 42 points in the paint.

Freshman guard Maurice Creek looked much better than he did in the Hoosiers’ first exhibition game of the season against Grace. He scored 16 points on 4-for-5 shooting, grabbed seven rebounds and also had two assists.

Junior guard Jeremiah Rivers and sophomore Verdell Jones III were often leading the Hoosiers’ fast break, and both had strong performances. Rivers had 15 points, five assists and four rebounds an Jones had 15 points and three assists.

Freshman forward Christian Watford had another strong performance, scoring 13 points, and IU got a fairly impressive debut from freshman center Bawa Muniru. He had seven points and three blocks in just eight minutes on the floor, and threw down a two-handed dunk that ignited the crowd.

The Hoosiers start playing for real on Friday at home against Howard.


Saint Joseph’s at Indiana: Discuss it here


Fisher still off depth chart, Willis on

If Monday’s depth chart is any indication, Indiana still doesn’t expect to have Ray Fisher back for Saturday’s game at Penn State. The senior cornerback is not listed on the depth chart at either cornerback or kick returner.

Freshman tailback Darius Willis is still listed as the starter at tailback, though, after leaving Saturday’s game against Wisconsin with a leg injury.

The rest of the depth chart remains unchanged. The Hoosiers are still low on safeties with Chris Adkins (elbow) still likely out and Jerimy Finch struggling with a hamstring injury. Collin Taylor and Matt Kurz are still the backups at those positions.

The rest of the depth chart follows. (more…)

Crean: Muniru redshirt unlikely

Though Tom Crean reiterated Sunday that freshman center Bawa Muniru has a long ways to go in his understanding of the game, the Indiana coach said it is unlikely that Muniru would be redshirted.

“I have no doubt that I’ll put him there tomorrow night,” Crean said in reference to Monday’s exhibition against St. Joseph’s. “Could we redshirt somebody? I guess we could, but again, I don’t know if we’re deep enough to take that shot right now. Maybe we do something like that down the road in a year. I would want to get our program to that point. But I don’t know if at Indiana at this present day we’re at the point where we can be redshirting people and count on x amount of guys to carry the torch for us. It’s just not there, we’re too young.” (more…)


Sheehey: Visit went well, but no commitment yet

Will Sheehey said he thinks he has all the information he needs to make a college choice. Now he just needs to sit down with his family and make a decision.

The 6-foot-5, 190-pound wing from Florida visited Indiana and said he was happy with what he saw from the Hoosiers.

“The visit was great,” Sheehey said by phone Sunday night after returning home. ” I learned a lot about Indiana, you know, between the basketball and the football game, I got to know a lot about the student life.” (more…)
