    That scenario is definitely possible. I think it’s absolute best case if we’re getting 12-13 and 10+ out of Green and Smith. The way I see it, RoJo averaged 14 ppg last season, and the offense looked terrible. Putting Romeo in that exact role, I think we’ll need more than a 2 ppg improvement on that. I also expect that he’s capable of doing that. If Green and Smith both make jumps, that’s great. But I think the best strategy for winning games next season will involve Romeo getting a lot of shots. As for the depth issue, we have five freshmen, one redshirt freshman, and three sophomores on the team. It’s just hard to count on so many underclassmen, but that remains to be seen.

    Wins are all that matters, so it really doesn’t make much difference to me how we get them. If that’s the case, then no one will be complaining. But I’m much more hopeful that Romeo can score 18+ ppg than I am that Smith/Green “blow up.” I’m not sure we’re as “deep” as people think (see preseason expectations for last season). Not a ton of experience on the roster. We’re going to need Romeo to be as good as advertised to be conference championship contenders.

    Don’t disagree on their pro prospects, but he will likely only provide value to IU on the court during his freshman year, which is all I really care about. On the other hand, I’m not sure he’s a one-and-done if he only averages 16 ppg in the Big Ten as a freshman. Either way, he’s been billed as the best scorer in his class and one of the best scorers in Indiana high school history. I think 18 ppg should be the minimum expectation.

    20+ ppg is A LOT for a freshman, and it almost seems unfair to expect that. But with the way he’s been treated as the holy savior of Indiana basketball... Anything less than 18 ppg will be pretty underwhelming.

    Blackmon averaged 15.7 ppg as a freshman. With all the hype, I’m expecting Romeo to do significantly better than that.

    Is the NonCon Schedule Improving?

    To be fair, they were pretty good that year. Tied for first in the Big Sky during the regular season, then won the Big Sky conference tourney and made the NCAA tourney. But that didn’t make it any easier to swallow, lol

    Getting some early respect.

    Lol, just couldn’t resist getting into this argument with you again. I’ll wave the white flag this time.

    And yet UK isn’t going to Duke either... But Duke isn’t afraid to take them on on a neutral court.

    If only there was a team in Indiana willing to play them there...

    Hoosiers In the NBA

    I really don’t understand why the Lakers let him go. They invested a second round pick on him, he made the G League first team as a rookie, and he just turned 21 with a pretty high ceiling... Guess they liked Ivica Zubac better?

    Lol like I said, there’s really no issue. This is high school basketball recruiting Twitter, nothing to get worked up about.

    Yeah, “going after” wasn’t the right phrase. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it, just kind of amusing. Hardly counts as a “rumor” when it’s tweeted out by a nobody with 33 followers. This is just TJD going out of his way to get some attention and stir things up, like most high profile recruits do. More power to him.

    Nothing better than searching for your own name and going after some random dude with 33 followers to stir up a little drama. TJD taking a page straight out of Dakich’s playbook, lol

    Not sure this is the best way to go about getting the Romeo treatment.

    But I doubt we end up with all three of them, especially given that we will also likely have Hunter and Smith competing for minutes at the 3 and 4 as well.
