  1. The Four Freshmen (Yes a very old musical reference) are really playing well: Devin, Stan, Troy, and Noah! If they all come back stronger and better next September, Indiana will be a Sweet Sixteen (or better) team!

  2. Sweet sixteen???? What happened to national champions…in your defense you did say better…..”Great Expectations”

  3. The Four Freshmen were actually four boys from Indiana… State of Indiana, that is… and they probably all played basket ball, being normal Indiana lads. They met at Butler… and the rest is history.

  4. If T-Will works as hard as Victor Olidipo to improve his game, he could become and even better all around player.
