IU men’s basketball to experiment with bigger lineups this season ANNA TIPLICK | IDS

After finishing third in the Big Ten in total rebounds two years ago, IU men’s basketball has been middle of the pack on the glass the past two seasons. In the 2017-18 season, IU was ninth in the conference with 35.7 rebounds per game. Last year, IU moved up two spots to 7th at 36.1 RPG. At times last season, due to injuries and depth, IU didn’t have the size to compete on the boards. Too many times IU would give up offensive rebounds, which led to second chance buckets for the other team. Juwan Morgan, Justin Smith and De’Ron Davis were the only three primary forwards who were relied on to bang down low for the Hoosiers. This year, IU head coach Archie Miller will have one of the deepest frontcourts in the Big Ten and said he now

wants to experiment with bigger lineups. With only four guards on scholarship making up the backcourt, Miller will rely on all seven of his forwards to play out of position occasionally when foul trouble occurs. “I think the strength of our team and some of the experience level of our team and talents, it really starts on paper with the size and the ability to hopefully play an inside game,” Miller said at Big Ten media day. “We have a lot of different guys that I think can play together.” Last season Smith and Morgan started a majority of the time as the lone big men on the floor. Then-freshman guard Romeo Langford started at the wing and averaged 5.4 RPG, but he wasn’t relied on to defend the post. Now, Miller will deploy lineups at least in the beginning of the season where Smith is only the third tallest Hoosier on the court.

Smith will see more time on the wing this season due to the additions of freshman forward Trayce Jackson-Davis and junior forward Joey Brunk. Just like Morgan was capable of doing, JacksonDavis can put the ball on the floor and space the defense due to his outside jump shot. It wouldn’t be surprising if Miller even put Jackson-Davis on the wing and played him at times with Brunk and De'Ron Davis to go as big as possible. “I think that just with my athleticism I'm able to play that position, but I've been learning a lot from Justin,” Jackson-Davis said at IU’s media day. “He's been teaching me a lot. Just trying to keep working at it, and hopefully I'll be ready by the season start." The bigger lineup was already showcased this season when IU played Marquette University at Bankers

Life Fieldhouse for a closed 40-minute scrimmage. IU fell to Marquette 72-69 but that was with sophomore guard Rob Phinisee and senior guard Devonte Green sitting out. Both figure to be in the Hoosiers’ starting lineup this season.

“We have a lot of different guys that I think can play together.” Archie Miller, IU head coach

Miller tried out the bigger lineup to start and throughout a majority of the game. In the starting five, junior guard Al Durham was the only guard on the floor. Sophomore forward Damezi Anderson, Jackson-Davis, Smith and Brunk all coexisted on the floor together. Despite being 6 feet 7 inches tall, Anderson played

opposite of Durham to start the Marquette scrimmage. Miller at times will deploy him or freshman forward Jerome Hunter at that position due to their shooting abilities. Freshman guard Armaan Franklin was also the only guard off the bench as Miller played three other forwards. It wouldn’t be unusual if IU tried out some form of this lineup in the first couple games of the season due to the versatility most of the forwards on Miller’s roster possess. "You can run a lot of different types of offense, especially when you have some guys who can score the ball down low," Miller said at IU’s media day. "But could they play together and defend a team who doesn’t play traditional with bigs? That will be the quest. Can those guys exist on that end of the floor a little bit?" Most teams don’t play every scholarship player in the

primary rotation throughout the season. Coaches try to tighten rotations to around eight players. For IU, every scholarship player could see important minutes at some point in the season. After a season where depth was a concern for IU to battle in the paint against the likes of Purdue, Michigan State, Maryland and others, now there’s more than enough experience and talent in the post. The Hoosiers can feel comfortable throwing different guys out on defense and foul trouble amongst forwards won’t be a major concern. “We have a big, strong, long group that in my opinion has some versatility, and we’ve got to get the most out of it by having them challenge each other every day,” Miller said at Big Ten media day. “But without question, I think that’s definitely something we have to find to make that a strength.”

SHOES AND RECOVERY Bendu Yeaney looks forward to her comeback season

Visit iusf.indiana.edu for more information

A customized edition of NBA All Star Damian Lillard’s signature shoes sit waiting to be put on. The words “Comeback Season” are emblazoned on either side of the sneakers, covered in candy stripes. On the inside are the outlines of the states of Indiana and Oregon. An IU trident and the No. 1 make it clear that these customized shoes belong to none other than women’s basketball junior guard Bendu Yeaney. They also comprise just a microscopic portion of the total number of shoes in Yeaney’s collection. “Altogether with me and my brother we have, like, over 300 (pairs),” Yeaney said. “I try to buy a pair each month.” Yeaney’s closet is her own personal Foot Locker, lined with Nike, Jordan and Adidas sneakers that have been stockpiled since the seventh grade. Her favorites right now are the pair of Jordan “First Class” she just bought. But if comfort is the move, expect to see Yeaney rocking the “Cream White” Yeezys. When she’s on the court you might catch Yeaney, who averaged 9.7 points and led the team with 51 steals a season ago, in James Harden’s “MVP” signature shoe, or more likely a pair of Lillard’s “All Skate” signature from Adidas, which Yeaney is gifted occasionally from the All-Star point guard. “I play in them mostly all the time," Yeaney said. "His little sister sends me shoes every once in a while, so I play in those a lot." Yeaney’s first laced-up love was a pair of Nike Blazer hightops she found in the closet of older brother Chris back in middle school.  “We wear the same size,” Yeaney said. “So like every time he would leave early for school I would go and take a pair of his shoes and then wear them to class, and he wouldn’t know. Then I would put them back before he got home." Now the two share their sneakers openly, alternating purchases of the latest kicks. “Me and him started buy-

ing shoes together because we were the same size,” Yeaney said. “If I would by a pair, he wouldn't buy a pair.” After injuring her Achilles tendon last spring in the NCAA tournament, Yeaney is still on the road to recovery, meaning it will be awhile before IU’s best and most stylish defender returns to the court. “We’re talking late December before we have her back, probably January,” said IU head coach Teri Moren. “There’s going to be several games in between before we have her back. She’s excited about the work she’s put in. We’re hopeful.” Yeaney was a member of the starting lineup in all but one game last season, and her defensive presence and leadership will be missed on an IU squad that was picked by coaches to finish third in the Big Ten this year.

“You know not having her makes us focus on missing her, so I think when she comes back, we’ll be at a better level, and she’ll only add to that.” Ali Patberg junior guard

“We understand what we’re missing with Bendu; I think that focus will be with us and with the coaches,” junior guard Ali Patberg said. “Obviously we’re gonna miss her defensively. You know not having her makes us focus on missing her, so I think when she comes back, we’ll be at a better level, and she’ll only add to that.” Yeaney has resumed practicing with the team via half court five-on-five, Moren said. If all goes well, Yeaney will be bumped to full court play shortly, and then it becomes just a matter of time before she

2019 BASKETBALL GUIDE

STEVE’S SLAM DUNKS

With such a deep roster, who gets the start for IU women's basketball? Stephan Walker is a junor in sports media.

Basketball is officially back in Bloomington, leading many people to wonder who sixth-year head coach Teri Moren will put on the floor this season. Jaelynn Penn, Brenna Wise and fifth-year senior Ali Patberg return as the starters. Bendu Yeaney returns as well, but an Achilles injury will limit her to start the season.  Backing up the returners, Moren has talented recruits at her disposal, including Indiana Miss Basketball Jorie Allen. But who gets the start?  Junior guard Ali Patberg Starting with the obvious, Patberg led this Hoosier team with 15.8 points and 4.8 assists per game last season. Coming off an All-Big Ten Second Team selection, Patberg will be a key part to this offense as the team looks to return to the NCAA Tournament.  As the leader on offense, she consistently finds open shooters but can also hit big shots when needed. Last season she shot 43.8% from the floor, good for ninth in the Big Ten, and she finished at 39.4% from three. Her playmaking ability will be a big part of this team’s success.  Junior guard Jaelynn Penn This season, I’m looking for Penn to continue her scoring but improve on her threepoint shooting. While she did lead the team with 57 threes, she only shot 33.7%. If she can improve her success rate with the long ball, she’ll be a killer in the Big Ten where she feasted last year.  Her 15.8 points per game in Big Ten play led the team, and if IU wants to compete for a Big Ten championship, they’ll need Penn to be consistent on both ends of the floor. Senior forward Brenna Wise Wise led the team with 6.8 rebounds per game and was the third-highest scorer. She

also led the team and the Big Ten and was seventh in the nation with a 91.6 free throw percentage. That mark was good for second highest in program history. On top of her presence in the paint and her ability to knock down free throws at will, Wise thrives from behind the arc. Her 41.3% from deep led the team. Her ability to score from just about anywhere on the floor makes her a deadly weapon for Moren. Sophomore forward Aleksa Gulbe The first newcomer, Gulbe played in 32 games last year and showed potential averaging 5.1 points and 3.6 boards per game, while shooting a respectable 36.4% from deep and 85.4% from the line. She’s my choice in the lineup because she led her U19 Latvian League to a championship, where she was named the MVP, scoring 32 points and collecting 12 rebounds. If she can bring that production to Assembly Hall, she could be the most dangerous player on the court.  Freshman forward Jorie Allen Last, but certainly not least, Miss Indiana Basketball could not be left off this lineup. The Bedford North Lawrence product led her team to four consecutive sectional championships and left as the program’s all-time leading scorer. She averaged 18.1 points her senior season to go along with eight rebounds. In the best state for high school basketball, Allen thrived for four years. I can’t wait to see what she brings to the Cream and Crimson. While I feel confident in this lineup, it’s all up to who Moren feels will provide the Hoosiers the best chance to win. IU starts its season with an exhibition against McKendree University on Nov. 3, with regular season action beginning Nov. 7 against Mount St. Mary’s University.

IDS basketball reporters predict the upcoming men’s and women’s seasons Basketball season brings a sense of excitement around Bloomington this time of year. The beginning of the season gives fans optimism for what beholds in the coming months. The Indiana Daily Student basketball reporters and columnists predicted how each team will fare, what its conference standing will be and if either will make the NCAA Tournament. Phil Steinmetz, men’s basketball reporter Seventh in the Big Ten regular season, NCAA Tournament first round There are a lot of question marks facing this year’s team. Who will the consistent starters be? Can senior guard Devonte Green build on his strong end to the 2018-19 season? How much will freshman forward Trayce Jackson-Davis play right away? That’s only a few of them. Sophomore guard Rob Phinisee has a full season of running the offense under his belt and is in line for the year-two jump a lot of players make. If Phinisee can improve his shooting while being a lockdown defender again in the backcourt, it’ll help IU’s NCAA Tournament chances. Before his concussion last season, Phinisee showed flashes of his potential as an eventual all-time IU great at point guard. The Hoosiers will have a lot of moving pieces. They don’t have have players such as then-freshman guard Romeo Langford or then-senior forward Juwan Morgan, who the Hoosiers knew would show up every night. It remains to be seen who’ll have the ball in his hands on the final possession with the game on the line. It’s been two seasons and IU head coach Archie Miller has yet to make the NCAA Tournament. If Miller fails for a third time, there will probably be some questions about how much longer he’ll be with the program. IU fans are longing for a team that will bring the program back to the spotlight. Luckily for the Hoosiers, the nonconference schedule is one of the easiest in recent memory, and they only play both Michigan teams once. I have the Hoosiers

Rob Phinisee will need to become a more consistent three-point shooter, junior Al Durham needs to become comfortable scoring off the dribble and junior Justin Smith needs to become a more consistent all-around offensive player. With a favorable nonconference schedule and only having to play some of the top teams in the Big Ten only once, the Hoosiers look to be in good shape to make a tournament push as long as they don’t have a repeat of the dreaded stretch when they lost 12 of 13.

squeezing into the tournament, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they weren’t even in the conversation come selection Sunday. Sam Bodnar, women’s basketball reporter Third in Big Ten, Elite Eight IU women’s basketball is inheriting a larger and more dominant freshman class than previous seasons.  These freshmen, who averaged double doubles in high school, will compete for a starting job with current guards and forwards on the program’s roster. This healthy competition will force all of the Hoosiers to excel and tear down opponents in their fight for minutes. Maryland and Michigan State own the top preseason ranking spots, according to Big Ten coaches, and will likely remain there for the duration of the season.  Michigan could push IU out of the top three, but the veteran leadership of returning starters junior guard Ali Patberg and senior forward Brenna Wise will likely sustain IU as a top-3 conference team.  Come tournament time, IU head coach Teri Moren and her Hoosiers will likely find themselves in a better position than in recent decades to advance further into March Madness. Matt Cohen, men’s basketball reporter Eighth in the Big Ten, First four out IU lost its two leading scorers from last year’s team that fell short of the NCAA Tournament. Both head coach Archie Miller and players have commented on improved chemistry among this year’s group and not needing to rely on a duo to put up the vast majority of the points.  In year three, Miller’s team needs to take the next step. IU has missed the NCAA Tournament for three straight seasons, and the team hasn’t shown much growth in his first two seasons.  There seems to be an expectation that this team can get over the hump and back into the dance. For me, there are too many uncertainties with this team to be able to safely put them back into March Madness.  This year’s team relies

on many players turning the corner in their development. It relies on freshman forward Jerome Hunter being able to contribute despite coming back from injury. It relies on talented freshman Trayce JacksonDavis stepping in smoothly. It still isn’t clear what the starting lineup will be. Miller has talked about having a big lineup, but with three guards capable of starting in sophomore Rob Phinisee, senior Devonte Green and junior Al Durham, Miller has options.  The Big Ten has a clear top four, and the middle appears quite jumbled. The conference appears to have some balance to it. IU will likely hover around the same conference record it had a year ago. If it isn’t doesn’t pick up nonconference wins over teams like Florida State University and the University of Connecticut, playing .500 or even sub-.500 may be just too little. It needs to win a game in the Big Ten Tournament as well.  IU will be in the mix into the final week of the season, but just as was the case last season, I think it falls just short.  Will Trubshaw, women’s basketball reporter Second in Big Ten, NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 Just two games separated IU from fifth place Ohio State in the standings last season, but so did four other teams. It was tight in conference all last year, and it figures to be more of the same

this season. But that should play well for the Hoosiers, who return four of their five starters from last year plus key bench pieces as well. Junior guards Bendu Yeaney and Jaelyn Pennn, junior guard Ali Patberg and senior forward Brenna Wise are a battle-tested bunch who know what it takes to win in the Big Ten after a full season together. While Yeaney recovers from her Achilles injury, expect all hands on deck from junior guard Keyanna Warthen and last year's freshman breakout stars, sophomore forward Aleksa Gulbe and sophomore guard Grace Berger. I wouldn’t be too surprised to see freshman centers Arielle Wisne and Hannah Noveroske and Jorie Allen, reigning Miss Indiana Basketball and freshman forward, get immediate looks at the starting lineup to fill the gaps left by graduated forward Kim Royster and, temporarily, Yeaney. This team is deep, experienced and has some talented true freshmen coming in. The official Big Ten preseason coaches poll has IU finishing third in conference. Once everyone is healthy, I’m not sure the Hoosiers will stop there. Led by Patberg, a preseason All Big Ten pick, it’s extremely plausible this IU team goes further in the NCAA tournament than any of head coach Teri Moren’s teams have before.

Caleb Coffman, men’s basketball columnist Eighth in the Big Ten, First four in There’s a lot less hype surrounding IU men’s basketball going into this season compared to a whirlwind of media coverage the team had last season as Romeo Langford came to campus. That is a good thing for the Hoosiers. Even though IU lost its top two scorers from last season in Langford and Juwan Morgan, the Hoosiers have the talent to make an NCAA Tournament run. A lot of people forget that redshirt freshman Jerome Hunter was the other highly touted freshman last season that was supposed to be a part of IU’s dynamic duo alongside Langford. Hunter was likely the missing piece for IU last season as he brings the two things the Hoosiers were in desperate need of on the offensive end of the court, the ability to create off the dribble and three-point shooting.  With Langford's departure, one of the biggest criticisms has been that head coach Archie Miller didn’t bring anyone in to fill the void left on the offensive end. Hunter is practically a recruit as he didn’t play last season and should be able to slide into that position and pick up some of the slack left behind. The rest of the slack will need to be picked up by players taking another step forward. Freshman

Stephan Walker, women’s basketball columnist Third in the Big Ten, NCAA Tournament second round After a dogfight in the Big Ten last season, Indiana finished 10th in the conference. The good news for Teri Moren’s squad is that four starters return, plus a good bench and solid recruits, including Miss Indiana Basketball Jorie Allen. The past two seasons have been successful for Moren and her team. IU won the WNIT in 2018 and made it to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in March. With the deep roster, there’s no reason to think they won’t make it back into the tournament.  Senior guard Ali Patberg will be a key piece this year. She led the team in scoring and assists last season with 15.8 points and 4.8 assists per game. Backing her up will be junior guard Jaelynn Penn, IU’s top three-point scorer, and senior forward Brenna Wise, who did it all for the Hoosiers last season. Wise led the team in rebounds, three-point percentage and free throw percentage. Her 91.6% mark from the line also led the Big Ten, making her a valuable asset to this team.  With junior Bendu Yeaney still recovering from an Achilles injury, sophomore's Aleksa Gulbe and Grace Berger will likely eat up minutes, along with Allen.  After getting picked to finish third by the coaches and fourth by the media, IU has high expectations to meet this year. But with the lineup depth and Moren’s experience at the helm, I expect the team to be right up there with the best.

MEN’S BASKETBALL COLUMN

ANNA TIPLICK | IDS

Sophomore forward Justin Smith commits an offensive foul trying to score against University of Arkansas on March 23 at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. IU defeated Arkansas 63-60.

Tempered expectations may lead to success for IU men’s basketball Caleb Coffman is a junior in sports media.

This is supposed to be a year that IU fans will want to forget. A season that IU misses the tournament for the fourth straight year, that gets head coach Archie Miller fired and that lets all the haters yell about how IU basketball is dead. But what if that’s exactly what IU needs to succeed? Last year, the Hoosiers entered the season with high expectations with the arrival of 5-star guard Romeo Langford and the emergence of senior forward Juwan Morgan as both possibly making All-Big Ten teams.  Even though IU entered last season unranked, the Hoosiers were projected to

finish fourth in the Big Ten and were thought to be a practical lock for the NCAA Tournament. With all the talent on last year's IU team, the expectations were much higher than the quality of the product put together. This year’s Hoosier squad might be the exact opposite. It’s almost impossible for the Hoosiers to go under the radar in a state that waits all year for basketball season, but the tempered expectations may be exactly what they need to play with a sense of freedom and finally break into the field-of-64 for the first time in the Miller era. It was obvious from the moment the Hoosiers stepped onto the court that they felt the pressure that

was thrust onto their shoulders, and nobody had as much pressure as Langford. “Very few people in the history of college basketball can come in with, number one, the hype, the reputation and the amount of responsibility that he was going to be handed,” Miller said following IU’s 55-52 loss to Ohio State. It’s fitting that with this year's lowered expectations, Miller seems to be going in the opposite direction as the rest of basketball. Miller took a small ball lineup last year that had the look of the modern game of basketball but not the skill set. Now, the third-year IU head coach is rewinding the clock as the Hoosiers are going back to a big and intimidating lineup that should

cause matchup problems for their opponents. IU has two true big men that are expected to anchor the blocks in junior Joey Brunk and senior De’Ron Davis. Couple them with freshman Trayce JacksonDavis, junior Justin Smith or junior Al Durham on the wing, sophomore Rob Phinisee as the point guard and senior Devonte Green at the two-guard position, and IU seems to have an identity that actually suits its skill set. IU is not going to be a three-point shooting team, and it knows it. The Hoosiers seem to be going back to “Bobby Ball,” as their offense will revolve around its big men. While Davis, Brunk, Smith and Jackson-Davis aren’t the most flashy names in the NCAA, they are four

players who know what their skill sets are and can all execute at a high level. Flash rarely wins in college basketball. Yes, the high-profile teams that take up the spotlight often win a lot of games during the regular season, but it’s the teams that are fundamentally sound and have a bunch of role players that know their limitations and can execute that consistently do well down the stretch. Look at Purdue. Outside of Carson Edwards, the Boilermakers were largely a team made up of role players who knew what they were expected to do and executed a very high level and ended up winning the Big Ten. Green is a poor-man's Edwards. They both shoot a lot of threes, and Green will

be expected to shoulder a large portion of IU’s offense this season. Brunk hopefully could take on the role of junior Matt Haarms as a consistent player in the paint for IU. Durham could to take a step forward like junior Nojel Eastern did last season for the Boilermakers and IU has a very similar look to Purdue. This IU team is not a national championship contender, but that doesn’t mean it won’t make the tournament. High expectations are great for media coverage and playing with some extra swagger while on the court, but flying under the radar should allow IU the freedom it never experienced last season to make a strong push for the big dance.

Al Durham never got to play for the coach he first committed to.

Now he’s a captain, with a clothing line. By Matt Cohen mdc1@iu.edu | @Matt_Cohen_

Al Durham cut in toward the basket from the corner along the baseline, adjacent to the final “A” of “INDIANA” written along the end of the court. He found a patch of open hardwood, his defender too late to react as then-senior forward Freddie McSwain tucked a bounce pass from near the top of the threepoint arc inside to Durham.  Durham didn’t dribble, instead taking a step and rising up to the basket. There was no one in his way. He rose straight up, holding the ball with both hands and his arms like flag posts directed straight above his head. Durham didn’t have to move his arms as he flushed the ball through the net for the dunk.  Durham’s arms shot down as his feet touched the ground. He stared directly into the camera behind the basket, balled his hands into a fist and flexed as he backed down the lane, just as he saw then-junior forward Juwan Morgan do behind him out of the corner of his eye. Just as he had always wanted to do. “Being on TV, flexing for the camera, catching a dunk,” Durham said. “It was a reassuring moment, like ‘Dang, I’ve actually done something I’ve always dreamed of.’” As Durham descended back to the ground and the ball bounced back on the floor, IU head coach Archie Miller pumped his fist as he stepped away from his perch next to the scorer’s table.  It wasn’t the coach the then-freshman Durham expected to see on the sideline when he committed to the Hoosiers. It wasn’t the coach with whom Durham expected to grow into a system and become a team captain.  * * * The Durham household in the Atlanta suburbs was always competitive. Durham, his brother and two sisters all played basketball. He has an older cousin with whom Durham would play one-on-one in the driveway. They all played pickup games and 21 as kids in Georgia. Every game was lined with competition; it wasn’t just fun with family. That extends to his father, Aljami Sr.  Aljami Sr. coached his son’s Amateur Athletic Union team, Southern Stampede. Durham’s parents were his toughest critic, and he’s glad they were. It’s what made him the player he is

today. “If you have somebody else telling you in your head how great you are, that’s not going to get you anywhere,” Durham said. “I feel like them being hard on me with basketball and in life, not everything is going to be sweet. It’s never going to be handed to you. You always have to work hard. I feel like him being my coach was just a great thing for me.” Even with AAU far in his rearview mirror entering his junior year at IU, Aljami Sr. is still trying to coach his son just as he always has. He’s still Durham’s toughest critic, and he may always be.  With his dad watching from the sideline, Durham had quite the running mate on Southern Stampede.  Durham and Collin Sexton met as little kids. Naturally, it came through basketball. 

“If you have somebody else telling you in your head how great you are, that’s not going to get you anywhere.” Al Durham, junior guard

They met when playing against each other and soon after would become teammates. Durham and Sexton became friends on and off the court. Basketball brought and kept them together. It was, and still is, their favorite thing to talk about.  They formed a formidable guard tandem, their individual skillsets playing off each other.  “I feel like we feed off each other,” Durham said. “We actually have a good little duo thing, we did different things.”  Sexton drew all the attention. He was a five-star recruit ranked in the top 10 of his high school class, the same class as Durham. He played at the University of Alabama before entering the 2018 NBA Draft. He was selected eighth overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers and averaged 16.7 points per game as a rookie. Durham has watched and cheered on Sexton through his successes since their basketball paths separated.  But his route to college basketball wasn’t quite as clear.  * * * It was Tom Crean that won Durham over, or at least he was the first.  Crean sold Durham on

IU. Sold him on the candystriped pants, the history, the prestige, the tradition. Durham committed to IU in the fall of 2015, just ahead of his junior season at Berkmar High School in Georgia.  But as Durham’s senior year at Berkmar drew toward its end, suddenly Crean was gone.  After falling to Georgia Institute of Technology in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament and failing to make the NCAA tournament with a team that was once ranked third in the nation, Crean was fired.  Durham was left to reconsider. He had the option to de-commit and reopen his recruitment, beginning the process all over again.  Or he had the option to meet the new IU coach, and give a second chance to the school he had been preparing to attend.  Archie Miller came down to Georgia as soon as he could after he was hired as the new IU head coach. It would be Durham’s first chance to meet him.  “I just wanted to hear what he had to say,” Durham said. “I wanted to hear his game plan and how he was going to come in to Indiana and what he was going to do and how he would help myself grow into a better basketball player and a better man. I wanted to hear what he had to say before I decided to go through the whole thing again.” Miller noticed Durham’s smile. A smile that has endeared itself to the Hoosiers’ head coach.  As Durham went through his own adversity, his smile exuded confidence. Miller didn’t know just how important that would be in the years to come.  Durham came away knowing he could still fit in with what Miller would bring to IU. He found similarities between himself and Miller during their meeting. Durham thought back to the excitement he had about IU following his visit and to the type of atmosphere in Assembly Hall Hall where he wanted to play.  He maintained his commitment to the Hoosiers, reaffirming himself to Miller.  Durham stuck with IU through it all. He’s glad he did. Three years later, that decision has paid off.  * * * Take a look at Al Durham away from Assembly Hall, not in uniform, and his style is quite clear.  His outfits often include baseball caps, bling, jean

jackets, ripped jeans, designer brands and shoe collections. He’s had a love of fashion for years.  “Growing up, you wanted to look the best, you wanted to make sure you stand out,” Durham said.  Durham has put that into action in his own way by starting his own clothing line.  His line, titled Real is Rare, debuted over the summer. His goal is to help people create a good first impression. He wants people wearing his clothes to look their best, to leave people remembering them for what they’re wearing, giving off confidence. For Durham, the name Real is Rare comes from his own life experiences. He thought back and saw things that are real in life are rare. The clothes are one of a kind for Durham — he's expressing himself in his own way.  “When I put it on and wear it, it’s like, ‘Man, that’s crazy. I have my own clothing line brand,’” Durham said. “I just want to make people feel like they can stand out in a room when everybody else has this on. They’re looking at you and see what you have on. It’s one thing that I want to stand out really.” Durham makes clothes to make those wearing them look good and feel special. It resembles his own basketball career rather closely.  * * * Durham sat in a team meeting on the first official practice of the 2019-20 season. It was his 21st birthday. He wasn’t expecting the gift he was about to receive.  The team had voted the day prior to decide the team’s captains. Durham voted for his upperclassman, the leaders he looked to.  He didn’t realize how much of the team was already looking to him.  At the team meeting, Durham heard his name called. He would be a captain.  Miller said the players' vote makes it more special, that the players earned the allegiance of their teammates, not just the coaches. He thinks Durham is ready for the role even as a junior.  “As he enters his junior year, he’s prepared,” Miller said. “He’s ready to go and I feel like Al is set up to lead our group by example, but also Al’s not afraid to speak his mind because I think he has the respect of his teammates.”  Durham wasn’t shocked, or at least not much. Instead, he saw it as his work paying off. He’s always been vocal,

making sure his teammates were in the right spot, doing the right things on the court. His teammates proved they noticed. “It gave me more reassurance that I’m doing the right thing,” Durham said. “That my teammates trust me, that they believe in me that much to put me as their team captain.” Durham saw himself become a leader in the midst of last season’s 1-12 stretch, a stretch he referred to simply as “adversity.” He saw a team that needed a spark. His approach each day during the difficult stretch is what sold himself to his teammates. They saw the same smile Miller did. Durham helped keep his teammates focused while surrounded by their own personal frustration on the court and the social media storm building around them.  “We need a guy that has some smiling to him,” Miller said. “The doom and gloom of a bad game or missed shot doesn’t impact him. That’s what we need.” It makes sense that Durham then would have played the second-most minutes in the win over Michigan State, the one victory in the disastrous 13-game stretch. His 46 minutes were the most on the team in the streak-breaking win over Wisconsin. Durham scored in double figures on both occasions, including going 3-5 from three both nights.  His individual numbers sparked his own season. It’s why Durham enters his junior year with his confidence high. It was both the on-court play and leadership that helped spark the team on a late run toward sneaking into the NCAA tournament. 

“He’s ready to go and I feel like Al is set up to lead our group by example, but also Al’s not afraid to speak his mind because I think he has the respect of his teammates.” Archie Miller, IU head coach

Durham averaged 8.3 points per game in his sophomore season, up from his 4.8 as a freshman. He started 30 games after starting only nine as a freshman. He played 583 minutes as a freshman, whichbecame 978 as a sophomore. His 34.8% mark from three was second best on the team among those who attempted double-digit threes. Without a

defender in his face, Durham shot above 50% at the 2019 Hoosier Hysteria three-point competition.   Durham talked about his experience seeing the team at its highs and the lows. He’s been there for all of them through the first years of Miller’s tenure. Sweeping Michigan State last season went to prove to Durham the team can always bounce back from adversity.  “I wanted to be that glue guy to bring everybody closer and bring everybody up and make sure they remember that adversity hits, but we just going to get through it,” Durham said.  Despite starting 30 games last season, Durham has never had to stand out. Whether it be Romeo Langford, Juwan Morgan or Robert Johnson, there’s always been a star where the spotlight is shining, players Durham would be working behind as a role player. And that’s where his clothing line begins to parallel what he does wearing an IU uniform.  Durham wants Real is Rare to allow people to be one of a kind, to stand out. He wants people to notice when people wear his clothes, to look their best. He feels he can give that to people with his clothes.  He’s playing his own role to give people confidence, to help them succeed. Just as he has on the court.  “I want to say it’s one of a kind because it’s mine and, I want to make sure everybody feels special when they wear it,” Durham said. “They want to feel like they are one of a kind.” He may not be the leading scorer or the focal point of the offense. He’ll still be working to support and give confidence to his teammates, to help them look their best on the court. Though it will no longer be Durham only in a supporting role, not only building everyone else up. He’s a captain now, the person everyone is looking to, the person everyone is expecting to lead.  Durham will be both a leader and a player with a flair all his own, the same flair that earned him the respect of his teammates as a junior and the flair that runs through his clothes. A smile that shines through the looming expectations and doubt of a fanbase searching for a return to relevance. He doesn’t know any other way.

Role modeling and bonding IU women’s basketball's only senior hopes to raise up more leaders CLAIRE LIVINGSTON | IDS

Senior Brenna Wise dances as she is introduced Oct. 5 at Hoosier Hysteria in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. By Sam Bodnar sbodnar@iu.edu | @sgbod13

Traveling seven hours away from Pittsburgh, the city she grew up in, senior forward Brenna Wise had a lot to learn about playing for a Big Ten team. After leaving the University of Pittsburgh midway through her collegiate career, she entered Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall and along with it, a different environment. IU women’s basketball has come alive in recent years, making the NCAA tournament last season and winning the NIT tournament title the season prior. Its recruitment class is one of the top 20 in the nation, and the players need mentoring from veterans. Having upperclassmen on IU’s roster is common. Being the only senior is rare. It has only happened one other time for IU in the last decade.  Knowing that Wise is her only senior, head coach Teri

Moren said the team relies on her leadership and respects her efforts on and off the court. “She’s just enthusiastic, she loves life, she loves to compete and she loves to lead,” Moren said. “She’s obviously proved that time and time again with her team, someone you can rely on everyday in practice to give us our best.” This season is Wise’s opportunity to model leadership and develop the new arrivals on the No. 3 team in the Big Ten. She feels prepared to take the lead because of the role models who welcomed her two seasons ago. “All great leaders focus on building more leaders,” Wise said. “My goal is to make sure that I have cultivated and grown other leaders to continue the success of this program.” As an inactive redshirt between her sophomore and junior season, being mentored by the likes of

Tyra Buss and Amanda Cahill allowed her to develop and play under strong leadership skills. Buss, the program’s leader in points scored, free throws made, steals, assists and more provided Wise with valuable offensive strategies. Cahill, who also racked up offensive highlights, demonstrated the importance of communication and teamwork by earning conference sportsmanship honors in back-to-back seasons. Wise said she valued how Buss and Cahill greeted her and new teammates with open arms but grew more as a leader and player by watching the senior duo inspire other players. Leading by example is how Wise plans on pushing her teammates to achieve their goals of personal and athletic development this season. Her constant reminder of this mindset comes not only from Buss and Cahill but from head

coach Teri Moren. “I have a profound respect for the way that she is as a leader,” Wise said. “I would run through walls for that woman because I know she would do the same.” Likewise, Moren said Wise will play a crucial role heading into the new season with injured veterans and new players on the roster.

“My goal is to make sure that I have cultivated and grown other leaders to continue the success of this program.” Brenna Wise, senior forward

“Her ability to stretch you out and knock down threes at a high level is what we’ll expect to continue,” Moren said. “She’s Miss Consistency. We always know what we are going to get with Brenna.”

Wise wants her teammates to understand that IU women’s basketball is about a culture that prioritizes work on a day-to-day basis. She communicates this throughout practices but also invests time in building friendships off the court. Outside of practice, Wise brings players to volleyball and football games, along with nights in downstown Bloomington or to the athletic dining hall. Whether it's through food or study sessions at someone’s apartment, Wise values bonding with everyone in the hopes that younger players will feel loved and will want to do this for future teammates. The ultimate goal, Wise said, is to bond like a family. “I came to Indiana and acquired 15 others sisters that I never had,” Wise said. Her newest sisters include freshman guards Grace Waggoner and Shaila Beeler, freshman forwards Jorie Allen and Mackenzie

Holmes and freshman centers Hannah Noveroske and Arielle Wisne. Together, Wise and her teammates bond over a diverse music selection from Chris Brown to Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is You.” No matter who has the aux during practices, they all have the same goal of chasing titles. “They bring this hunger to want to succeed and provide anything positive at any moment to the team,” Wise said. “You want to work hard, and they want to work hard.” Opening night is Nov. 7 against Mount St. Mary’s University at Assembly Hall. Wise said she looks forward to growing closer to her teammates while demonstrating what the standard should be throughout the season. “Each year we’ve continued to raise the bar, and this year we’re looking forward to raising it even more,” Wise said.
