Verdell Jones and the 2010 Hoosiers build for the future in a matchup against Bill Russell and the 1967 Hoosiers. What you didn’t know Bill Russell is from Columbus, IN and played for IU?

Bill DeHeer is in my top 5 favorite IU players of all time, and Vern Payne and Butch Joyner weren't far behind... Loved the 67 surprise B10 Champs...

OMG!  Bill Russell was on the '67 IU team.  No way the 2010 team stops him.  '67 just may be the favorite to win it all.

Former heavyweight champ Jack Johnson too...

The second game was compelling.  Just a few of the things that happened.

  • Michael Lewis threw the ball off Wayne Radford's face on an inbounds play.
  • Tommy Baker and Jim Roberson were kicked off the '78 team during the game for 'mellowing' out while on the bench.
  • Antwan Randle El was called for travelling 7 times while trying to run the option.  But, he did make some beautiful passes.
  • In the closing seconds of a tie game, AJ Guyton and Kirk Haston were fighting over who would get to take the last shot.  In wrestling for the ball, it trickled away into the hands of Larry Richardson, who hit a 34 foot shot at the buzzer to win it for the '99 team.
