Reserves for 2013-14: Austin Etherington, Maurice Creek, Collin Hartman, Taylor Wayer, Jeff Howard, Raphael Smith, Devin Davis Jr.
Out of this batch of players, there are a few who could move out of the reserve role and see some meaningful playing time.
Maurice Creek will be in the final season of an injury filled career. He has shown promise. When Creek was a freshman, he scored 31 points against Kentucky. That same year, before his season-ending injury, he was the top scoring freshman in the country (he averaged 17.3 points through the first nine games of the season). Creek is a natural scorer that Tom Crean could turn to if the IU bench is struggling to score points.
Austin Etherington is the wild card of this bunch. He showed promise in his freshman year, but missed all of this season with a fractured patella. If he makes a full recovery and demonstrates he is the Etherington of old, key minutes could come his way.
