Re: Indiana Basketball 2011-2012 Part II
Interesting stuff fellas. Turner was an enigma for 2 1/2 years at IU. He was always in and out of Knight's doghouse. That '81 team was highly touted at the beginning of the season but struggled early and headed into B1G play at 7-5. Suddenly a light bulb went on in Landon's head, and he was a force. They stormed through the opponents on their way to the title that year. I truly believe that had that tradgedy not happened that Landon Turner would have been a high caliber NBA player upon his graduation. As a gesture to how good they thought he was, Red Auerbach of the Celtics drafted him with a late round draft pick after the accident.
...and this one belongs to the Reds.
