The Indiana Hoosiers were arguably the best team during the regular season last year, but the same will not be the case in the 2013-14 college basketball season. In fact, the Hoosiers aren’t receiving much love in a recent power ranking of the Big Ten.
ESPN’s Seth Greenberg has Indiana ranked No. 6 in the conference. Although this may seem fair considering all of the talent that the team lost, there are powerhouse teams that lose the same amount of talent every single year, but are still ranked in the top 10 to start the season.
Well, that is not going to be the case with Indiana. The Big Ten really will be stacked with great teams once again, which is probably a big reason why they are being ranked so low in this power ranking.
However, Yogi Ferrell and Will Sheehey will be back, along with a pretty talented recruiting class that is highlighted by Noah Vonley–five-star recruit.
With that said, teams like Michigan State and Michigan should enter the season by being ranked in the top 10, which is probably why they were ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in this power ranking. Other teams ahead of Indiana are Ohio State, Wisconsin and Iowa.
All five teams ahead of the Hoosiers in this power ranking have a legit shot at winning a Big Ten title. If incoming players can have an instant impact, the same thing could be the case with Indiana, but as it stands this team has many question marks entering the 2013-14 college hoops season.
