  1. What a great bunch on that 2002 team…a gutsy and unselfish group that never gave up..Newton, Moye, Coverdale, Odel, Fife, Jeffries, Leach, Hornsby. The game against #1 Duke(overcoming a 17-point halftime deficit) followed by the unbelievable 3-point barrage against Kent State(a tricky regional final game that could have easily spelled disaster while riding the high of taking down Duke in the semi) will forever likely be the most fun I’ve ever had at a pair of weekend games.

    Thanks for those memories, Jared. “Elite” is not measured by polls or position on draft night. Elite is measured in heart and achieving as a group beyond the individual hype. Good luck at Denver.

  2. An Indiana kid who stayed home to become the pride of the state and go on to live his NBA dreams. This current generation of Indiana kids could learn a few lessons from Jared.
