Indiana Men’s Basketball needs more depth, here are some guys that could help fix that

It’s no secret that IU needs help, here are some possible solutions

Well it’s no secret that Indiana Men’s Basketball is struggling at the moment. They’ve dropped their past four games, including a drubbing by a not too great Purdue team last Saturday.

Indiana’s biggest issue as of late has been a lack of offensive productivity and reliable scoring outside Juwan Morgan and Romeo Langford. But today, I offer solutions. Solutions that could turn this Crimson bloody season into a creamy smooth ride into the NCAA Tournament.

Here are some people that I think could help with that issue.

Stevie Scott

The breakout star of the 2018 IU football season could see some major minutes spending his off-season in Assembly Hall. Coach Allen had considered moving Scott around before the start of the season and perhaps a move to the basketball court would’ve been right. Scott’s sheer strength and size would make for a great inside player that could bully the opposition.


For those of you who were still around here when we were still considering a Tom Crean replacement, Wario was one of the most sought after minds in the sport, even beating out Brad Stevens. But now nearly two years later, Wario has become a top prospect on the transfer market for sometime. Wario has shown incredible pick and roll abilities that would make him a surefire starter this season.

Another football player on this list, Quenton Nelson has proven himself to be quite the stud in his rookie season in Indianapolis. With the Colts having been officially eliminated from the Playoffs, Nelson could be spending his time sharpening his more technical skills on the hardwood.

Evan Fitzner

Finally to round out this list is none other than St. Mary’s Evan Fitzner. Fitzner would make for a fantastic addition to an IU team that’s struggling to make an impact from three point land. Not only that, but the potential transfer has NCAA Tourney experience and height that would greatly benefit an IU team that usually utilizes a three guard set.

Well, that’s all of the potential talent that I could think of for this list. What are your suggestions? Be sure to let us know in the comments or on Twitter @CrimsonQuarry.
