Guyton: This guy could seriously play. Not a true point guard but probably forced to play it because he's small for a shooting guard. Honors: 1st team All Big Ten 1998, 1999, 2000; Player of the year 2000.
Wright: Big shooting guard who was afraid of playing defense. Honors: 1st team All Big Ten 2005
Evans: Played 2nd, 3rd, and 4th fiddle to the older guys his first three years but once he was the senior he showed everyone what he could do. Averaged over 20ppg and won player of the year. Honors: 1st team all Big Ten 1996; Player of the Year 1996
White: Big, strong, physical post-man that dominated as a junior and senior. Not especially agile on defense but a good rebounder. Honors: All Big Ten 2008; Player of the Year 2008.
Henderson: Overshadowed by Calbert Cheaney and Damon Bailey but his numbers say it all. Might be the most dominating big man they've ever had. Honors: 1st team All Big Ten 1995.
Bench: Jared Jeffries was player of the year in 2002 and carried the Hoosiers to the NCAA championship game. Eric Gordon also earned 1st team honors while proving to everyone Bloomington was just a temporary stop before the NBA. Kirk Haston garnered 1st team honors in 2001 for solid defense and was probably the best big man in the conference that year.
Strengths: Size, defense, team play, bench scoring
Indiana really has a great team here and with Bob Knight running the show you can expect tough man to man defense for 40 minutes. If Guyton and Henderson are double teamed you can expect Evans to step up with the big shot.
Weaknesses: DJ White and Alan Henderson had tendencies to get into foul trouble while donning the cream and crimson. Can Gordon play with Wright and Guyton? Will the guards relax and let the game come to them or will they force the issue?
