Comment: Taking care of the basketball and point guard remain a question but this is a more experienced team than IU has usually fielded. Hoosiers may start a pair of fifth-year seniors (Hartman and Newkirk), a four-year starter (Johnson), another returning starter (Morgan) and have a promising soph in the middle in Davis. The age of this team should help this win close games. Defense has been a problem for awhile but now you bring in a proven, defensive minded coach in Archie Miller. Plus the NBA departures who played all season weren't exactly known as good defenders. Getting Green and/or Jones to step up would go a long way to making this an NCAA team.
