IU releases updated basketball roster for 2018-19 season

As is standard protocol for the program, Indiana updated its basketball roster on Monday, the first day of classes for students in Bloomington.

A couple quick notes:

— Romeo Langford is listed at 6-foot-6, 215 pounds. That’s one inch taller and 25 pounds bulkier from Langford’s measurements last season, per New Albany’s roster on MaxPreps. He’ll wear No. 0.

— As for the rest of IU’s freshman class:
Jerome Hunter is listed at 6-foot-7, 214 pounds. He’ll wear No. 21.
Damezi Anderson is listed at 6-foot-7, 215 pounds. He’ll wear No. 23.
Rob Phinisee is listed at 6-foot-1, 182 pounds. He’ll wear No. 10.
Jake Forrester is listed at 6-foot-8, 218 pounds. He’ll wear No. 4.

— Saint Mary’s graduate transfer Evan Fitzner is listed at 6-foot-10, 225 pounds. He’ll wear No. 55.

— Sophomore Clifton Moore, a 6-foot-10 forward, has added 10 pounds. He’s now listed at 230 pounds.

— Sophomore Justin Smith, who was listed at 6-foot-6, 220 pounds last season, is now marked at 6-foot-7, 227 pounds.

— Redshirt freshman Race Thompson is listed at 6-foot-8, 228 pounds.

— Walk-on guard Ethan Lasko is no longer on the roster.


  1. Did Morgan lose any weight in his big cranium due to ego shrinkage after draft readiness assessments? Just kidding….Hope he is meaner and eagerer. Is ‘eagerer’ a word?
    Very hopeful for a great season and best odds in years for a deep NCAA run. Love the size on this team…Love the balance and athleticism. Love the fact that we picked up the Saint Mary’s transfer ‘big’ with a nice stroke on the three ball.

    The only real question marks remaining fall into the intangibles of leadership/maturity …and whether or not we’ll have enough firepower/marksmanship to be consistently dangerous from various perimeter roster spots.

    Do have a feeling that this group will gel….They will be a dangerous team as the season nears March.

  2. I am curious to the effect Romeo’s height and weight changes will have on his game. Obviously, he has been working on this aspect and I’m sure S&C has played a big part in how the increased bulk was obtained.

  3. Ok, what exactly does a “Director of Creative Development” do for a basketball team? I am curious. His bio is strong.

    1. “Production” not “development”. Ok, I get it: marketing, branding, internet technology products for media and fans to consume. It is a new world out there!

  4. I was hoping that Jake was going to measure 6’10. Give that young man some growth pills, jk.
