Oladipo is one of the most athletic players in the NCAA.
There are few players in the country that have been as electrifying as Victor Oladipo this season.
Oladipo has exceeded all expectations that were set for him this season. With the spotlight on Zeller, he was able to not draw a lot of attention, and has made opposing teams pay for that mistake.
His shooting has been unbelievable so far, as he is shooting 64.4 percent, making him the third most efficient scorer in the country. He has been great shooting from anywhere on the court, as he has been able to do anything from drive to the bucket to settle for an outside shot.
What makes Oladipo more dangerous than any other Hoosier has been his dominating defense. His 2.5 steals per game are the best in the Big Ten. According to Sports-Reference.com, his defensive rating of 82.6 is the best in the Big Ten as well. He has truly dominated opposing teams, shifting momentum towards the Hoosiers at many points in the season.
The only thing that has appeared to be a problem with Oladipo are his turnovers. He has averaged 2.3 turnovers per game, which is the most on the team. This is likely due to his fast and aggressive style of play, but it would be better if that number could drop a little.
