BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Indiana men’s basketball coach Tom Crean on Monday added 6-foot-4 guard Nick Zeisloft to his roster. Zeisloft is transferring from Illinois State after earning his degree in finance.

Crean in a press release said Zeisloft, who will be eligible to play this season, brings a physical and mental toughness and will allow the Hoosiers to spread the floor more.

Zeisloft played two seasons for the Redbirds, averaging 6.9 points and 3.4 rebounds a game this past season, when he started 30 of 34 games. He shot 35.5 percent from 3-point range, making 60 of 169 shots.

Zeisloft redshirted the 2011-12 season and has two years of eligibility left. He is from La Grange, Illinois.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to play for Coach Crean and the Indiana Hoosiers,” Zeisloft said in the press release. “IU’s tradition is like no other and I am honored to have the opportunity to further my education in the Kelley School of Business.”
