February 22nd, 2013 at 4:29 PM
While No. 1 Indiana is having an amazing season, its fairly clear that this team isn't going to look the same this fall. A few Hoosiers are set to graduate and its looking more and more likely that two underclassmen will go pro.  Christian Watford and Jordan Hulls are both seniors...
