My Two Cents: Handling Lofty Expectations Next Big Challenge For Indiana Basketball Coach Mike Woodson, Hoosiers Star Trayce Jackson-Davis

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — There are Indiana basketball fans who have already booked hotel rooms in Houston for the Final Four in April. That’s how far — and how fast — this runaway train of expectations is rolling down the tracks already.

On paper, this is the best Indiana basketball team since 2016, a group that surprisingly won a Big Ten title for Tom Crean and bought him another year at Indiana.

This team is better.

Both the 2016 Hoosiers and the 2023 team have/had great freshmen, both have/had a standout veteran point guard (Yogi Ferrell, Xavier Johnson), but this current team has the better superstar in Trayce Jackson-Davis, and that’s not even close .
