Hoosier Hysteria: Scrimmage stats and more

Analysis on every Indiana player from Friday night's scrimmage.

Here are some scoring stats from Friday night's Hoosier Hysteria scrimmage, complete with analysis on each player's performance.

RED TEAM

Freshman F Devin Davis -- 0

Davis may not have scored, but he certainly held his own in the scrimmage. Tom Crean called him the most surprising guy since the summer last week, and we saw why on Friday. Davis is long, strong and athletic, and he has the opportunity to play right away for the Hoosiers this year. He rebounds and defends at a high level, which will undoubtedly help him get off the bench.

Senior F Will Sheehey -- 14

Sheehey's scrimmage went like his offseason -- up and down. Sheehey had some positive moments and scored well, but he also shot multiple air balls and his shot selection was a bit questionable at time. But there's no doubt Sheehey will be a big contributor for Indiana this season.

Freshman G Stanford Robinson -- 6 (assists: 1)

Robinson is another guy that could play immediately as a freshman, assuming he's healthy. He went down with a knee injury late in the scrimmage and is out indefinitely. But Robinson does a solid job of pushing the ball, has nifty moves around the basket, and is a good finisher. Now he must focus on taking care of the ball and only dribbling for a purpose.

Freshman F Collin Hartman -- 0

Hartman's potential role on this team is clear: Space the floor as a shooter. He didn't make any perimeter shots in Friday's scrimmage, however. The coaching staff has worked with Hartman on altering his release to make his shot more consistent.

Freshman C Peter Jurkin -- 6

Jurkin was pretty impressive. He made a nice post move for a basket, something Crean said he hasn't seen before. Jurkin also made a couple of jump shots, which will be his role if he does see the court this season. The question with Jurkin is and always has been: Can he get and stay healthy?

Senior G Evan Gordon -- 12 (assists: 1)

I was more impressed with Gordon than anyone else in the scrimmage. He's explosive to the rim like his older brother, and he understands how to play. He made several nice jumpers, knocked down some 3s, and also ran the point for the red team. I could see him playing a big role this season.

WHITE TEAM

Sophomore G Yogi Ferrell -- 6 (assists: 2)

Not much new from Yogi. He was solid throughout, as he usually is. His biggest offseason improvement may have been his perimeter jump shot. Ferrell's 3-point shot looked much smoother on Friday than it did a season ago.

Sophomore F Hanner Mosquera-Perea -- 4

He's coming along, but there's still plenty of room for improvement. Mosquera-Perea still struggled to catch the ball in the post on occasion, but he did rebound the ball well and scored a couple baskets in the paint.

Sophomore F Jeremy Hollowell -- 13 (assists 1)

Hollowell was the most aggressive player on the court. He looked for his offensive opportunities early and often, and looked good doing so. His 3-point shot is improved, and he also hits the boards hard. Hollowell had a great block on Sheehey at one point, as well. Offensive efficiency will be the key for Hollowell this season.

Sophomore G Austin Etherington -- 0

Etherington, like Hartman, will need to make shots to get on the floor this season. He didn't do so in the scrimmage, but his shot looked good in Friday's 3-point shootout.

Freshman F Noah Vonleh -- DNP

Vonleh was a late scratch because of an ankle injury he suffered in practice Wednesday. Vonleh returned to practice on Sunday.

Sophomore G Jonny Marlin -- 2

Marlin is a walk-on, but he could carve out a small role for himself this season. He small at only 5-foot-10, but he's a smart player and he can knock down perimeter shots.
