The 2019-20 season for the Indiana men’s basketball team appeared headed for a breakthrough, as the Hoosiers were in position to reach the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2016.

In the end, Indiana didn’t have to look far to find a replacement for long-time athletic director Fred Glass.

As Indiana celebrated its 20th win Wednesday night after dispatching Nebraska 89-64 in the Big Ten Tournament, there was a thought the Hoosiers had done enough to secure their first NCAA Tournament bid since 2016.

Indiana senior guard Devonte Green took part in Wednesday’s shoot-around and is available for the Hoosiers in IU’s Big Ten tournament opener against Nebraska, a source confirmed.

Indiana will name current New York Giants strength and conditioning coach Aaron Wellman as its new strength and conditioning coach, a source confirmed Saturday.

Devonte Green and De’Ron Davis could have left following their freshman seasons when Archie Miller replaced Tom Crean as the Indiana men’s basketball coach. Both stuck it out, through rebuilding seasons, injuries and role changes.

MINNEAPOLIS — Trayce Jackson-Davis had 27 points and 16 rebounds, both career highs, to lead Indiana’s second-half takeover of Minnesota for a critical 68-56 victory on Wednesday night.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Ali Patberg remembered losing at Rutgers nearly a year ago when Indiana blew a 13-point, second-half lead. The Hoosiers wilted down the stretch against the Scarlet Knights pressure.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — With his teammates struggling to get anything going, Iowa's Jordan Bohannon stepped up and pulled off perhaps the best 15-minutes stretch of his career.

When the 2017 season ended, it looked like Peyton Ramsey would be the likely quarterback to lead Indiana in 2018. He would return with the most experience and had thrown for 1,252 yards in a part-time starting role as a redshirt freshman. He completed 65 percent of his passes.

Just how deep is the 2018 Indiana offensive line? Consider this: Hunter Littlejohn started all 12 games at center last season as a redshirt sophomore, and he likely will open the 2018 season in a backup role.
