Matt Roth's collegiate basketball career appears to be over, both at Indiana or anywhere else. According to The Hoosier Scoop, Roth is neither taking classes at Indiana or considered a scholarship player for the team.
While I understand that Indiana has brought in one of the nations top recruiting classes for the upcoming season, I believe Tom Crean should have either found a way to get Roth on the roster or to not have over recruited.
Teams are allocated 13 scholarships and had it not been for Ron Patterson's ineligible status to play at IU, the Hoosiers would have been in an even bigger predicament than they are already in with this Roth situation.
I will attempt to explain what Roth, who hails from Washington, Illinois, provided to the Indiana basketball program over the past four seasons and why losing him may end up hurting the Hoosiers more than they think.
