Race Thompson has been labeled as Indiana’s “glue guy” for a few seasons now. The sixth-year senior has been a Swiss Army knife for the Hoosiers thus far in his Indiana career.
In 2021-22 Thompson averaged 11.1 points per game on 57.7% true shooting. Let’s check out what Thompson brings to Indiana’s team.
WHAT THOMPSON DOES WELL
As Indiana’s power forward last season, Thompson was asked to do a lot on defense. Thompson’s play on that end was crucial for the Hoosiers’ success.
At the basket, Thompson provided value as a rim protector. He was able to deter shots regularly. Now heading into his fifth season, Thompson has gained superb defensive awareness of what offenses are doing and where to be.
