For Indiana basketball, Hoosier Hysteria and the official start of practice is a little more than two weeks away. This year's team has a lot to live up to after last season's squad won a Big Ten title and was a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
The thing is, the Hoosiers' starting lineup is going to be completely different and is still a mystery. Yogi Ferrell is the only returning starter, and it's still unclear who his four comrades will be when the season begins.
Despite this, it's never too early to predict the Hoosiers's starting five. A very likely lineup includes Ferrell at point guard, Evan Gordon as the shooting guard, Will Sheehey and Noah Vonleh as the forwards and Luke Fischer at center.
In order for the Hoosiers to compete for a conference title and make noise in March, each of these projected starters has to set a list of goals and knock them out one by one. Surely each player has a lot they want to accomplish, but which goal is most important?
This slideshow will discuss the biggest goal for each projected starer. These goals were picked based on how accomplishing them will positively affect IU's success the most in 2013-14.
