NIT Scouting Report: Indiana

 

Not too many teams that win ten Big Ten games get left out of the tournament. But with a mediocre 15-13 record, the Hoosiers had no one to blame but themselves.

 

This is a young team but a talented one, led by potential superstar freshman power forward D.J. White. White is similar to Syracuseís Hakim Warrick, with a excellent leaping ability and a long, lanky frame.

 

Shooting guard Bracey Wright has been battling nagging injuries but is an explosive scorer.  Assembly Hall will host the opening game against Vanderbilt and should host more NIT

 games afterward. The Hoosiers donít lose at home very often.

 

Weaknesses:

 

Inexperience in the backcourt and mental lapses have been the bane of head coach Mike Davis. Things have gotten a lot better since a brutal non-conference slate, however.

           

Summary:

 

The Hoosier faithful are howling, but an NIT run should give the team valuable experience and confidence heading into next season.

 

Prediction: Behind a strong home court advantage, the Hoosiers make it to Madison Square Garden before falling to Maryland in the NIT championship game.

 


 

More Big Ten NCAA Tournament Scouting Reports

 

So you think the Big Ten had a down year?  Most conferences would kill for 5 NCAA Tournament teams, and the #1 seed in the entire field of 65.  Maybe the Big Ten isn't as strong as it has been in recent years, but you'd be foolish to just ignore the damage that a Michigan State or Wisconsin can do.  Nick Meyer presents scouting reports for each Big Ten team that's playing in the post-season, including NIT bound Indiana.
