  1. I wasat the game as well, and Will and VO both are the most athletic players on our team. Its amazing the jumping ability and reach these guys have! Vic made acrobatic plays one after another and Will came up with some huuuge rebounds that he shouldnt have gotten too. Very imressive, and very impressed with the Def effort and Off flow in the 2nd half! Everyone should tune in tomm to the BTN just to see the game that Vic, WIll, and Verdell had! Great game guys, we are definitely a different team than the last few years!

  2. ^^^ What?? I don’t understand….I thought our frehsmen class wasn’t any good…. Well, I for one am glad a certain poster here isn’t on the coaching staff evaluating H.S. talent.

    Nice work Will and Vic…most IU fans are glad to have you on board.

  3. Oh, just stop it already, all of you! Quit being homers and admit that VO and WS suck. 4guards already explained it all to you. Why can’t you just get it through your heads that in spite of the fact that these guys look really good when you watch them and even put up quality stats, they’re just simply not any good at the game of basketball? Sheesh . . .
