Noah Vonleh (left) and Devin Davis (right) illustrate the breadth of Indiana's influence in 2013. One committed when was a sophomore, is an in-state talent and has been part of the program for two years. One only reclassified from 2014 in September and, though he publicly considered a number of schools, only had eyes for Indiana.
Tom Crean has rarely made excuses for where his program was two years ago, and three and four. He’s not about to start apologizing for its returned elite status, either.
