Stemler appears OK…but just OK

Injured Indiana forward Lance Stemler just came off the floor after shooting baskets for a few minutes. He didn’t do much more than shoot from a stationary position. No running or any vigorous physical activity.

Stemler was inadvertently kicked in the head last weekend by teammate Xavier Keeling and suffered a concussion. He had not been cleared to practice as of Thursday.

Stemler, a junior transfer from Southwest Illinois, is second on the team in scoring with 12.3 points per game. He’s hit 50 percent of his 3-pointers.
