  1. Catching a glimpse of Florida State vs. Wake Forest just before heading out…..I hear the announcer calling out, “CJ Walker for another 3-pointer….CJ Walker, a freshman, out of Indy.”
    Lord, how many shooters does this phenomenal basketball paradise of Indiana produce for all of the nation every damn season? Seems like every time I flip on a game and some kid is draining deep balls, there’s an 80% chance that it’s a Hoosier kid.
