The Indiana Hoosiers have been chosen as the top team in the Big Ten and their star, Cody Zeller was picked as the Preseason Player of the Year in a vote by conference media.

Michigan and Ohio State were picked to finish second and third respectively.

The Hoosiers return all five starters from the team that went 27-9 and reached the Sweet 16.

The 6-foot-11 Zeller, who averaged 15.6 points and 6.6 rebounds as a freshman last season is the key player in the Hoosiers success. He was a unanimous pick for the preseason All-Big Ten team with Trey Burke of Michigan, Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas of Ohio State and Penn State’s Tim Frazier.

Former Indiana Hoosiers All-American Lou Watson, had the distinction of being the coach between two of the most successful coaches in the school’s history, Branch McCracken (364-174) and Bobby Knight (661-240), died in Fairfax, Virginia at the age of 88.

Watson, who was from Jeffersonville, Indiana, which is located just across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky, was an All-American for McCracken in 1950. When he left the Bloomington, Indiana school, he was their all-time leading scorer.

Watson became McCracken’s long-time assistant coach, then became IU’s head basketball coach from 1966-71 and guided the Hoosiers to a co-Big Ten championship in 1967. That team was known as the “Cardiac Kids” due to their playing so many down-to-the-wire games.

Watson, who ended his coaching career with a 61-60 record, coached George McGinnis, who went on to the ABA and NBA, during the 1970-71 season when he gained All-American status.

He was inducted into the Indiana University Athletics Hall of Fame in 1989.

Smith torched IU for a career-high 28 points on 10-12 shooting, 4-5 from 3-point range, 7 assists and 0 turnovers in 34 minutes of action. He canned every open shot he had and played basically a solid game.
