    Actually, I think Vitale has been saying they should rename Assembly Hall after Knight.

    Something baffling comes out of Vitale's mouth and you are surprised? The guy's a loony bin.

    Here's one thought- IU would really rather tear down Assembly Hall. No sense in naming it after Knight if you're going to knock it down.
    But even if that were the case, even though I think a lot of fans would support it, naming the Hall after a guy you fire is pretty hard to explain. I doubt it will happen.

    Better watch out for Northwestern State. They are a tough bunch.
    They actually did beat UK back when Eddie Sutton was their coach.

    There isn't a single "easy" win on IU's schedule. By virtue of being in Division 1, every team they play will have more scholarship players than IU.

    Crean started 4 freshmen and a JC transfer in the 2 exhibition games. Of course, the entire roster is basically made up of freshmen and JCs.

    It's hard to say really. I would say Tom Pritchard has been the best so far just looking at the box scores.

    Pritchard has surprised with his good play, of course its easier when you're playing guys smaller than you.

    The scuttle coming into the season was the best players would be Devan Dumes or Verdell Jones III or Nick Williams.

    Dumes is a JC transfer who played his first season at Eastern Michigan, Jones and Williams are freshmen.

    Jones was the one with the most hype coming in IIRC. He'd be my pick to end up as the best player by the end of the season. I've read pretty good things about Dumes as well though.

    From Inside The Hall.

    Know Thy Opponent: Northwestern State Demons

    The Tom Crean era begins Saturday night with a visit in Assembly Hall from the Northwestern State Demons.

    Coach Mike McConathy returns five of his top eight scorers from a team that went 15-18 a season ago and reached the championship game of their conference tournament for the fourth straight season.

    The outlook this year is much brighter for Northwestern State — they were picked to finish second in the East division of the Southland Conference behind Stephen L. Austin.

    Keith Hancock, a 5-10 senior guard, is the leading returning scorer (8.7 ppg). Another guy to keep an eye on is 6-4 junior guard Damon Jones (6.4 ppg).

    “We feel very good about our team,” McConathy told reporters at SLC Media Day. “Even though the numbers may not indicate it, we do have a strong core of experienced players back and we will be blending in some new faces. We have guys who all have played in crunch time.”

    Make no mistake about it, the Hoosiers will have their hands full in this match up. As will be the case almost universally, Northwestern State is a more experienced club and they’ll be looking to play spoiler while making a statement for their program come Saturday night.

    Crean and his staff managed to land a very good 2009 class. The Hoosiers return to glory is near!

    IU has received the letter of intent for 6-10 Bawa Muniru, making its six-man 2009 recruiting class official.

    Here’s the release from IU announcing the class:

    Bloomington — Indiana University men’s basketball coach Tom Crean has announced that six student-athletes have signed national letters of intent to attend IU and play basketball for the Hoosiers. With just seven months on the recruiting trail, along with NCAA restrictions, the Hoosier staff has hauled in one of the top recruiting classes in the country. The Hoosiers are ranked fifth nationally by Rivals.com and seventh nationally by Scout.com. The Hoosier class is the highest rated among Big Ten schools.

    Bobby Capobianco, 6-8, 225, Forward, Loveland, Ohio, Loveland High School
    Maurice Creek, 6-5, 195, Guard, Chatham, Va., Hargrave Military Academy
    Derek Elston, 6-8, 212, Forward, Tipton, Ind., Tipton High School
    Jordan Hulls, 6-0, 170, Guard, Bloomington, Ind., Bloomington South
    Bawa Muniru (bah-wah muh-nee-roo), 6-11, 250, Center, Mt. Zion Academy, Durham, N.C.
    Christian Watford , 6-7, 215 lbs, Forward, Birmingham, Ala., Shades Valley High School

    I turned the game on radio the other night and i had no idea which players were on Indiana and which players were on the other team. I think alot of people will be needing to buy programs this year.

    Thank God, I think this year's team will be awful but more fun to watch than the last 7+ years.
