Kerry Johnson took up coaching basketball because of his own son’s interest in the game at a young age, and he has since had a chance to work with players at every level.

But when a player named Bawa Muniru (pronounced BOW-waa moo-KNEE-roo) arrived in Huntsville five years ago, Johnson was confronted with a job for which nothing could have prepared him.

Here’s the release, courtesy of J.D. Campbell at IU.


The Indiana University Athletics Department will hold its annual Hoosier Hysteria on Friday, October 17 in Assembly Hall. The event will feature the IU men’s and women’s basketball teams and the IU volleyball program.

“Our players and coaches are really looking forward to this event.,” said IU men’s basketball coach Tom Crean. “It will be a great way for the fans to get to know us and for our kids to understand just how important Indiana basketball is to those who support our program.  Our hope is to have as many former players back as possible to also be a part of this special night.”

The Bus

We’ll be back at The Bus on the west side of Memorial Stadium Stadium Saturday from 10:30 to 11:30 for our pregame report that you can watch live at HTO.

Our guests before Indiana’s conference opener against Michigan State will be former Hoosier coach Bill Mallory and 1979 Big Ten MVP Tim Clifford, who will be inducted into the IU Athletics Hall of Fame Friday night.

If you can’t make it to the stadium yourself, join us before the game. We’ll also have our usual fan chat during the game here at The Hoosier Scoop.

Scout.com: Bawa will be a Hoosier

By   |   Friday, Sep. 26, 2008 - 12:00 AM   |   13 comments

[3:30 UPDATE]

I’m still trying to reach Bawa and his guardians.

A source confirmed for me late last night that the Scout.com report was true, and I sort of forgot to let you know that. Which is mostly just an indication that I didn’t think that Evan Daniels would get it wrong.


Scout.com is reporting tonight that 2009 big man Bawa Muniru has given a verbal commitment to become the sixth member of Indiana’s next incoming class.

The 6-11 native of Ghana may not even be sure where he’ll attend school this year — the prep school he planned to play for has shaky academics, according to the NCAA, so he’s looking for a new one — but confirmed to Evan Daniels that he called IUs coaches to say he would accept their scholarship offer.

We’ll have more on this story.
