Hulls was certainly elite but so was Blackmon, Yogi, and Zeisloft at a minimum. Could make a case for a few guys that shot a lower volume after Hulls too.

Crean did a pretty good job of putting a lot of guys who could really shoot on the floor. 

Max Bielfeldt shot 45% from three at IU after shooting 27% at MI.

More positive reports from the National guys this morning about Cupps play at EYBL event in Westfield. I don't think I've been this confident in our guards we have and those that will be coming in a long time.

Obviously we always have to recruit but I feel like we are set for at least a few years.

Cupps and his Centerville, Ohio team will be playing in New Albany on December 29th.  

NA better hope they improve. That will be a thrashing if not. Dog pound tough place to play, I get it. Centerville was a top 10 team in the country this past year and added the Powell kid we are recruiting.

At first I was concerned because CMW made it clear he wanted bigger more athletic guards and GC does not fit the description. But the more you see and hear from the kid the more you like him. Coach on the floor type who knows how to lead a team. 

Cupps is about 6'2 165 by most recruiting sites. Compare that to K Lander, who IU listed at 6'2 and a very generous 185, and you get the sense he will need to hit the gym before arriving in Bloomington. But I wouldn't count him out regardless. Other's have had success at that size in college.

Bobby Hurley (No, not saying he's Hurley) was 6'0 165 at Duke and that may have been when he graduated because I'm not sure he was 165 as a freshman. If Cupps can control the ball and knock down shots he'll help the team. The bigger challenge will be on defense and that's something he's going to have to figure out because teams will attack him.

Look forward to seeing him develop and be a part of this team. He has the personality and leadership skills that draws other recruits to want to be on his team. By the time it's over he has the potential to be one of the all-time fan favorites.

Hurley might have been 165 as a freshman if he wore a lead-lined jock strap and didn't take a $%^& for a week. 

You also have to consider....that was 30 years ago.  Nutrition and training have advanced so much since then that while Hurley was smaller even for his era, the discrepancy wasn't as much.

This kid lives at the gym.  He knows he needs to get stronger and bigger.   He's on the record stating it.  He doing what's needed to be successful when he arrives at IU.  As a coaches kid, playing pg, I believe he knows what's expected of him.   😊
