Will Sheehey is the man behind Indiana's resurgence. In his last two games, the senior has carried the Hoosiers offensively, dropping a career-high 30 points against Iowa and 19 versus Ohio State. His efforts earned him Big Ten Player of the Week honors.
Besides rediscovering his mid-range game, Sheehey is converting from long range. This season he's made just 31 percent of his attempts, but during this recent hot streak, Sheehey is shooting 42 percent from beyond the arc.
As evidenced by recent wins, the Hoosiers are much better when Sheehey is pouring in points. A confident, explosive Sheehey is exactly what they need going forward.
But, can Sheehey sustain his recent play? Outside of the last week, he's been pretty mediocre.
In order to keep Sheehey going, it's imperative to get him the ball early and often. Sheehey scored 16 and eight points in the first half against Iowa and Ohio State, respectively. Those early looks build his confidence, and once he's in a groove, he's a completely different player, and Indiana is better because of it.
