Flashback to 2002 – – –
The Indiana Hurrying Hoosiers under the leadership of Coach Mike Davis surprise the world by advancing to “March Madness’ Final Four.”
Flashback to 1987 – – –
With the legendary Bob Night as coach, Indiana University wins its fifth national championship since the first one in 1940.
Other championships were earned in 1953 (the year I was born), 1976 (the year I graduated from I.U. with the likes of Quinn Buckner, Tom Abernathy, Scott May [Big Ten Player of the Year], Bob Wilkerson, Jimmy Crews, Joe Kocy, Chris Spiek, Bob Crestani, Pat Walsh, Pete Peterson, and others), 1981 led by Isaah Thomas, and 1987.
The 2011-2012 Tom Crean Team is good enough to win it all. Great coaching staff, good upperclassmen leadership, and phenomenal play by sophs and one very talented freshman #40!!!
Go I.U. fight, fight, fight!!!
