CHICAGO - There's a thought that Indiana post player Cody Zeller would have gone in the top five of last year's NBA draft. Maybe the 7-footer will still end up as a lottery pick in next month's draft. But choosing to remain in Bloomington for one more year has affected his draft stock. That could entice the 76ers, who will likely have the 11th pick, into drafting him. At least that's what ESPN draft analyst Chad Ford believes. Ford predicts in his mock draft that the franchise, in desperate need of a big man, will select the 230-pounder.

Another step in the return of the fabled Hoosiers program came Friday as coach Tom Crean is about to start his fifth season in Bloomington. Indiana was ranked No. 1 in the Associated Press ' preseason Top 25, a first for the Hoosiers since 1979-80, when they were coached by Bob Knight and the three-point line was still in the experimental phase. The Hoosiers and their fans are quite familiar with the next two teams in the voting: Louisville and Kentucky. The three schools are from the basketball-rabid area known as "Kentuckiana.

Indiana is the East region's No. 1 seed, but make no mistake about who the best team is here: second-seeded Miami. Senior forward Kenny Kadji averages 13.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game for the ACC regular season and tournament champions. Miami's offense has picked up lately (74.8 points per game in the last six games) and its defense allows the 15th lowest points per game (60.2) among tournament teams. Indiana, led by sophomore forward Cody Zeller, has dropped two of its last four games, including a 12-point conference semifinal loss to Wisconsin.

TYLER GRIFFEY made the easiest and biggest shot of his career. The senior forward took an inbounds pass and made a wide-open layup with 0.9 seconds to play to give Illinois a 74-72 victory over No. 1 Indiana on Thursday night, the fifth straight week the nation's top-ranked team lost. Hoosiers coach Tom Crean, whose team has been No. 1 for a total of 7 weeks this season, doesn't have a reason for the recent weekly changes on top of the poll. "I just know that these games are 40-minute games," Crean said.

PATIENCE WASN'T a virtue that Kevin Ferrell had as an infant. Waiting for his meals wasn't an option in his mind. To him, it was anything at any time. It is why his mom, Lydia, gave him the nickname Yogi, like Yogi the Bear, which has stuck since that time. Yogi Ferrell was ranked as the best player in his age group in the fifth grade. He won state championships his junior and senior season at Indianapolis' Park Tudor High School, and lost in the title game as a sophomore. Ranked as high as the No. 2 point guard of his class, he entered Indiana four years ago as highly touted as one can be. Though only 6-feet tall, no one would have been surprised if he left early for the NBA. But Ferrell, not exhibiting the impatience of his youth, entered Indiana with one goal in mind, and it had nothing to do with himself.

CODY ZELLER squeezed the basketball as the final seconds ticked off the clock, sealing Indiana's first outright Big Ten title in 2 decades. It was a fitting finish, for sure.

Zeller made a go-ahead layup with 13 seconds left and altered Trey Burke's shot at the other end, lifting visiting Indiana to a 72-71 victory over No. 7 Michigan on Sunday. "We've been working on that all year - closing out games," said Zeller, who had 25 points and 10 rebounds.
