Indiana Basketball Big Ten Media Day 2018

The Big Ten conference hosted its annual Big Ten Basketball media day Thursday, Oct. 11 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Rosemont, IL. We heard from Indiana head coach Archie Miller and senior captains Juwan Morgan and Zach McRoberts talk about a variety of topics heading into the 2018-2019 season. Here are some of the best moments from Indiana from media day.

Archie Miller

Last week, Miller named Morgan and McRoberts captains for Indiana this season after being voted on by their teammates. Miller addressed the toughness of McRoberts on the court and the respect he’s earned from his teammates, in addition to the team being very competitive in practice. At the media roundtable, Miller addressed more specific topics such as a recovery update on De’Ron Davis’ achilles, and his high expectations for sophomore’s Al Durham and Justin Smith entering the season.

Juwan Morgan

Morgan earned the “gold jersey” during the first week of official practice. He addressed how the prize intensifies practice and creates friendly competitiveness among the group. Morgan also talked about the point guard battle at practice between junior Devonte Green and freshman Rob Phinisee.

Zach McRoberts

The one-time walk-on McRoberts was named co-captain last week by his teammates. The Hoosier Network sat down with him as the Carmel native talked about his process going from Vermont to being just a regular student and now nicknamed the hardest working-man in college basketball.
