For the past two seasons, Cody Zeller has been the face of the team. IU got a nice surprise this year when Victor Oladipo elevated his game to All-American levels. Not only were these two Indiana's leading scorers, but they were also its most efficient players (player efficiency rating of 29.8 for Zeller and 28.9 for Oladipo), per sports-reference.com.
Both won't suit up for the Hoosiers ever again.
Tom Crean must figure out who is going to replace the lost production. Zeller and Oladipo brought stability. When the offense was struggling, at least one of the two could be counted on to right the ship.
Crean will have to configure the offense to the players he has. This presents several questions.
Who will become the feature player? Can Will Sheehey make an offensive leap like Oladipo did this season? Will the incoming freshmen be able to score in the rugged Big Ten?
These questions probably keep Crean up at night, but lucky for Indiana, he is a good coach and has plenty of time to develop a new game plan. It will just be interesting to see what his new offensive strategy will be and what players it will include.
