10. Alan Henderson, 1991-92
The only guy on this list to compete on a Final Four team, Henderson provided stellar inside support for senior Eric Anderson. Henderson's 238 rebounds are still an IU freshman record.
9. Jay Edwards, 1987-88
Edwards' .536 three-point shooting percentage is still a national freshman record and the third-highest figure of any player in Indiana history. His 36 points and eight three-pointers against Minnesota are still IU freshman single-game records. He's deducted, however, for a 30-day midseason academic suspension.
8. Don Schlundt, 1951-52
The Korean War provided a loophole allowing freshmen to play for one season, and the 6'9" Schlundt took full advantage. The big man, nicknamed "Ox," bulled his way to 17.1 PPG. Schlundt crushed fifth-ranked Kansas State for 28 points in only his sixth collegiate game and never really looked back.
Rebounds weren't kept until the end of Schlundt's career, but considering that he towered over most of his opposition, it's not out of the question that he could have averaged close to a double-double.
7. A.J. Guyton, 1996-97
By the time Guyton (pictured) finished his freshman year, he was in rarefied air. He was only the second first-year Hoosier to card 400 points, 100 assists and 100 rebounds, joining some fellow named Isiah. Not bad for a guy who was supposed to caddy for Michael Lewis.
6. Mike Woodson, 1976-77
The Hoosier team didn't fare well in Woodson's first year, slumping to 14-13 after losing the nucleus of the team that lost one game in two seasons. Still, it wasn't Woodson's fault. Woodson's 18.5 PPG, 6.7 RPG, .521 field-goal percentage and .792 free-throw percentage constitute one of the strongest all-around years in IU history, particularly for a freshman.
