Thomas Bryant Commits To Indiana

Apr 4, 2015 4:47 PM

Thomas Bryant committed to Indiana on Saturday as a member of the 2015 recruiting class.

The 6-foot-10 center is regarded as one of the top rebounders in the country due to his energy and length. Bryant recently had 27 points and 19 rebounds in the final win of his high school career at Huntington St. Joseph Prep (WV) after averaging 17.3 points and 11.6 boards per game as a senior. He's rated as four-star recruit by ESPN and the 22nd in the country.

As a McDonald's All-American, Bryant is a big haul for Tom Crean and Indiana. He chose the Hoosiers over programs including Kentucky, Missouri, and Syracuse. Bryant joins power forward Juwan Morgan and small forward Ogugua Anunoby as members of the 2015 recruiting class.

Brad Stevens Committed To Celtics Amid Speculation Of Interest From Indiana University

Dec 22, 2014 1:33 AM

Brad Stevens made it clear that he is committed to his job as the head coach of the Boston Celtics, even as fans of the Indiana University Hoosiers speculate about Stevens returning home.

"I’ve committed to being here," Stevens said. "I’ve already left a situation once and that was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to choose to do. This is something that as long as they want me to be here, this is what I want to be doing and I’m going to give it everything I’ve got. I know it’s all specific to the rumor mills and the discussion of one spot. I think they’ve got a good coach who’s done a helluva job. He doesn’t deserve that speculation.

"I’m the head coach of the Boston Celtics. This is the job. This is where I am. This is what I want to do really well and I’m committed to being as good as I can every single day for the Celtics."

Stevens is in his second season as the Celtics' coach and has gained respect in the league.

Said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich: "He was a hell of a coach before he got here and he’ll be an even better coach as time goes on. He’s a special guy, that’s why Danny Ainge went and got him."

"I think Brad Stevens is an awesome coach," Kevin Love said. "They’re going to be able to figure it out as they accumulate more talent and like I said, I’m a big fan of Brad Stevens."

Devin Davis In Serious Condition After Being Hit By Car Driven By Hoosier Teammate

Nov 1, 2014 2:25 PM

Indiana sophomore Devin Davis was injured after being struck by a vehicle driven by freshman teammate Emmitt Holt just moments after exiting the vehicle.

Davis was taken to IU Health Bloomington Hospital and is currently in serious condition. Hospital spokeswoman Amanda Roach said the hospital had no information on Davis.

"I've been with him all night," Indiana coach Tom Crean said in a text to ESPN.com. "Big 48 hours coming."

Holt was cited for illegal consumption and operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content above 0.02. Holt registered a 0.025, according to the school. Someone is considered to be over the limit in Indiana if they have a BAC of at least .08 percent. If they are younger than 21 years old -- as was the case with Holt -- the limit is only .02 percent.

Holt was driving away "when, for unknown reasons, Mr. Davis came into the roadway and struck the side of the vehicle near the front passenger windshield," according to the police.

Police found Davis unconscious with a head injury on the street that's just off the IU campus. Holt's Jeep Liberty had damage to its passenger side, front fender and windshield, Canada said.
