A total of seven players left the program once the season was over. Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller declared for the NBA draft. Jordan Hulls, Christian Watford and Derek Elston graduated. Maurice Creek and Remy Abell transferred.
Nearly all of the team's production turned in their Indiana uniforms.
Of course, the early departure of Oladipo and Zeller was expected, but still a bummer for the Hoosiers. The pair was Indiana's engine. The Hoosiers went as they did, and their skills and output will be tough to replace.
Hulls, Watford and Elston were leaders and valuable contributors. They were there when IU was in college basketball's cellar and helped resurrect the program to what it is today.
Hulls and Watford were Indiana's main three-point threat. Surely, Tom Crean is sad to see them go.
The absence of Creek and Abell won't hurt as much, but the two will be missed. Creek offered experience to an otherwise very young roster, and Abell was a solid ball-handler and capable defender. Because the Hoosiers only have one experienced point guard, it would be nice to still have Abell around.
