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 and Jordan Hulls.
2010-11 STATS: 8.3 points per game (38.9 percent FG, 31.0 3pt), 2.4 rebounds, 21 assists, 26 turnovers, 4 steals in 18 games.
WHAT WENT RIGHT: Creek at least got back on the floor, even if it wasn’t for long and even if he wasn’t as effective when he was there. Tom Crean said repeatedly that Creek’s shattered left knee had been healed, and it was just leg strength that was holding him back. He said after Creek suffered a stress fracture in the right knee that the Oxon Hill, Md. native was very, very close to being his old self. As it was, he was a serviceable role player who could score from the outside, even if he didn’t do it with nearly the efficiency that he did as a freshman.
THE TO-DO LIST:
We’ll be here. Same time, same place. Only this time, we’ll be wearing green and I’ll be listening to the Dropkick Murphys.

Indiana University women’s basketball commit Jasmine McGhee has been named the WBCA Junior College/Community College Player of the Year.
“The WBCA is thrilled to present Jasmine McGhee with the State Farm/WBCA JC/CC Player of the Year award,” WBCA CEO Beth Bass said in a press release. “She has had an outstanding season, and is very deserving of this achievement.

McGhee had 19 points and nine rebounds Tuesday as second-ranked Vincennes opened the NJCAA national tournament with a 91-66 win over 15th seed Wallace State. The Lady Trailblazers play Northern Oklahoma-Enid in the second round tonight at 9 p.m. You can watch a live stream of the game right here.

Jeremy Hollowell, a Lawrence Central junior, wrote on Twitter moments ago that he’ll make a college decision before the start of the AAU season.
Talkin it over with my mom: I will be making my college decision before the start of AAU season
I Want to go in Aau settled knowing where im going not having to worry about it just focused on winning games having fun!
Hollowell will play for the Eric Gordon All-Stars this season, like he did a year ago. The 17U schedule is not up on the program’s site, but the 16U program will be at the IndyBall Shootout in Indianapolis starting on April 8.
That gives Hollowell about three weeks to make a decision. Of those currently involved with Hollowell, Indiana has been around the longest (at one point, he said it was between Indiana and Ohio State; he then backed off on OSU). The No. 39 prospect in the country, a 6-6 small forward who could easily slide down to guard, has also been pursued by Illinois and Purdue.
