The current Indiana men’s basketball team is getting a taste of what it’s like to play against NBA players.
Former Hoosier stars Victor Oladipo (now with the Orlando Magic) and Noah Vonleh (now with the Charlotte Hornets) are back in Bloomington, Ind., working out with Tom Crean’s 2015-16 Indiana squad.
James Blackmon Jr., who announced Thursday he is returning for another season, is apparently trying to match up with Oladipo every chance he gets.
Victor Oladipo and Noah Vonleh are back on campus, apparently. Christian Watford will be soon. Alumni pool party? #iubb

Victor Oladipo is on campus at Indiana. James Blackmon Jr. said he goes against VO, loves learning from an NBA player. #iubb

Victor Oladipo is working out with IU right now. Blackmon says he wants to go against him every chance he gets. “That’s how you get better.”

Indiana’s 2015-16 team has a chance to do what Oladipo’s 2012-13 squad did: compete for a Big Ten championship and go far in the NCAA Tournament. The Hoosiers are a likely preseason top 10-15 team.
