Moses Abraham visit update and news of another visit (Hoosiers Insider | The Indianapolis Star)
"If Tom Crean was [sic] smart he would have told him that the weather in Bloomington is like it was Tuesday every day of the year." Later in the article, this gem from Hutch: "I was at Memorial Stadium for the first day of Spring Football practice and sat there wishing I was playing golf." Terry Hutchens gets paid to drive to Bloomington, Indiana on a beautiful, warm, sunny spring day to watch football practice, and he still wishes he were doing something else. The grass is always greener, I guess.

Bassett enjoys NCAA ride for Ohio, thankful of hometown support (TribStar.com)
"Bassett, known as a third or fourth option with deadly accuracy from the 3-point line at IU, has expanded his game. Hard work in the weight room has allowed him to attack the rim more often. A bulked-up Bassett said he took full advantage of the year that he sat out due to NCAA transfer rules. He leads the team in free-throw attempts and makes, hitting 162 for 196 (82.7 percent)." At least we're now down to four former IU players or signees in the Tournament. I wish none of them ill, but it's tough to hear about it so much.
