Waltman fills Leary’s post

Indiana has officially named Royce Waltman the color commentator for IU basketball games. The release follows.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Oct. 7, 2010)Indiana University Sports Properties announced that celebrated collegiate basketball coach Royce Waltman will join Don Fischer in the broadcast booth as color commentator for the Hoosiers’ 2010-2011 season.  Long-time pre game and post game host Joe Smith will begin his 28th year on the broadcast team.

“Royce is one of the most highly respected coaches in his profession,” said Fischer, who is in his 38th year as the “Voice of the Hoosiers”.  “His knowledge of basketball and his background at almost every level of the game will add much to our broadcasts.”

Waltman boasts an already familiar tie to IU having served as an assistant coach with Head Coach Bobby Knight from 1982-1987.  He then become head coach for DePauw University (1988-1992), University of Indianapolis (1992-’97) and Indiana State University <> (1997–2007).  He won 100 or more games at each of these schools and led all three to the NCAA National Tournament.  Most recently, he had returned to coaching at the high school ranks serving as assistant coach at Roncalli High School in Indianapolis.

Willis questionable for OSU

Darius Willis is questionable for Saturday’s game against Ohio State with a groin injury, according to the injury report released by the team.

He’s the only new name to note. Chris Adkins, James Brewer, Richard Council, Nick Freeland and Brandon McGhee are all out. Kevin Bush and Brad Martin are both probable.

South to host Perea’s team Feb. 19

Former H-T sports writer Rex Kirts’ South basketball blog is reporting that Hanner Perea, the 6-foot-8 Colombian and prospective IU recruit, and his LaPorte LaLumiere team will play the Panthers in Bloomington on Saturday, Feb. 19.

Game time will be set so as not to conflict with a potential IU tipoff. The Hoosiers are scheduled to host Northwestern on either the 19th or 20th.

LaLumiere is not an Indiana High School Athletic Association member and can schedule with flexibility. Perea transferred to LaLumiere this year.
