VO:

VO: 


The big O is one of my favorite players and I didn't even know that until today. Strange Huh? He really showed everyone on National TV what he is capable of and he is a long way from his ceiling. Great game by O today.

Hoosier Forever,
GO IU

RE: VO: 


Oladipo has to be making the pro scouts salivate. He is so quick on defense, it's like the man he's defending is watching his own moves in a mirror, except for that part about handling the ball. Now his outside shot has improved, so there's nothing standing between him and a career at the 2 spot in the pros.

I thought we might have him back next year. That's looking less and less likely with each passing game. And nobody deserves it more.

VO is the POY for IU and in the league. I think he comes back.

RE: VO: 


I really hope you're right about Victor coming back, Laf, but I'm afraid with him being ready to graduate next May, he's going to have accomplished about everything he would have hoped to accomplish in college. We'll have to see how the rest of the season plays out, and then what the NBA pundits have to say around about NBA draft time, but I would have a hard time turning down an NBA contract this year if I were he.

RE: VO: 


I think Cody comes back and Vic won't resist playing with CZ, Will and Vonleh. I don't know what chance IU has for a title this year, but if those two guy come back, the odds go up considerably. Throw in that mix an improved Perea, Hollowell with Luke, Boo Williams and Stan Robinson, hold on.

That would be an incredible team. Can't happen it just wouldn't be fair

RE: VO: 


I think this game was his best career game. Based on that he would get a first round offer but I am not sure he can match this kind of performance again. If he does, he will go pro.

Re: VO: 


I have to agree with you guys VO is like lightening a bottle and still hasn't reached his potential, He can be as good as he wants to be. Just hope that he can handle it, I think that he can.
