5 things I'm confident about in 2013-14

As we still await Adreian Payne’s NBA draft decision, I thought it would be fun to take another way-too-early look ahead to the 2013-14 season. This time, I’ll do it in prediction form, offering five things I’m confident about in 2013-14. See all five in this post. Have a prediction of your own? Feel free to leave it as a comment. 1. Ronnie Johnson, not Yogi Ferrell, will be best point guard in Indiana – No disrespect to Ferrell, whose role is certain to increase in the wake of Indiana losing Jordan Hulls, Victor Oladipo, Christian Watford and Cody Zeller.

Dienhart: Should NBA have MLB style draft?

Michigan’s John Beilein recently broached a good idea: Make the NBA draft like the MLB draft. “(My preference would) probably be very much like baseball,” Beilein said. “I think that would be a great thing. If there’s a Kobe (Bryant) or LeBron (James) out of high school, he can get that big contract and go. “If not, go (to college) for three years and make an educated decision. Then guys can redshirt and do all these things. That’s ideal in my mind.” Really, it’s a brilliant idea that I would love to see adopted. We know the colleges would like

Abell to transfer from Indiana

Even with Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo turning pro early earlier this week, Indiana coach Tom Crean faced a scholarship crunch. Someone had to leave to open up a scholarship, as the Hoosiers had 14 players and just 13 scholarships even with Zeller and Oladipo gone early. Well, a spot opened with Indiana announcing tonight that sophomore guard Remy Abell will transfer in pursuit of more playing time. “Remy has been an outstanding citizen and a solid player for us the past two years,” Crean said in a statement. “He indicated to us that he would like to look to

Big Ten Geeks: Looking Ahead to 2013-14

We’re now officially in the college basketball offseason, a long seven months where the NBA playoffs, major league baseball, and eventually football serve as poor stand-ins for our sports attention. But before we shift into that fruitless exercise, let’s take a quick look at what awaits us beyond the gap. While these numbers will likely change over the next week (especially for Michigan), here’s a current summary of what each team returns for 2013-14: With these numbers in mind, here’s a few thoughts on each team: Indiana will take a major drop, but it helps to drop from such a

2013 NBA Draft: Big Ten early entrants

The 2013 NBA Draft is Thursday, June 27. Any underclassman who enters his name into the draft has until Tuesday, April 16 to withdraw and retain college eligibility. Several Big Ten players face the decision of staying in school or turning pro. See all the decisions in this post. Here’s the list of Big Ten players who have declared for the draft: Deshaun Thomas, Jr., Ohio State: DIENHART COLUMN | AP STORY | MORE THOMAS Per Game Team G GS MPG PPG RPG APG SPG BPG TOPG PFPG FG% 3P% FT% 2010-11 OhioSt 37 0 14.0 7.5 3.5 0.5 0.4

Dienhart: Cody Zeller makes 'wise' choice

Victor Oladipo turned pro on Tuesday. It was Cody Zeller’s turn Wednesday. And, like Oladipo, Zeller made a wise choice. Zeller has accomplished a lot in two scant years in Bloomington, helping revive the Indiana program by leading it to its first outright Big Ten title in 20 seasons. The Hoosiers also earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tourney, which they exited prematurely. Still, he has helped make IU an elite program once again, priming the Hoosiers for a big future.

Just how much has Indiana lost? Here's a look

As expected, Cody Zeller joined Victor Oladipo in entering the NBA draft. Coupled with the graduations of Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford, the early departures mean Indiana will attempt to defend its Big Ten crown without its four leading scorers, and arguably best players. Just how much production has Indiana lost? Four 1,000-point scorers, for starters. I crunch all the numbers in this post. [ FACEBOOK POLL: Who will Indiana miss more: Oladipo or Zeller? ] POINTS 2012-13 team total: 2,831 Points from departures: 1,897 (Zeller, 594; Oladipo, 491; Watford, 443; Hulls, 348; Elston, 21) Percentage lost: 67 percent Leading

Photo: Zeller brothers, in summer of 2003

Indiana sophomore Cody Zeller announced Wednesday that he would forgo his final two seasons of eligibility to enter the 2013 NBA Draft. Zeller, an expected lottery pick, will join older brothers Luke and Tyler in the NBA. Prior to Zeller’s announcement, a decade-old photo of the Zeller brothers was being shared on social media. The photo’s from the summer of 2003, and it features a 10-year-old Cody. He’s the shortest one, on the left, of course. h/t: @zkeefer About Brent Yarina BTN.com web editor Brent Yarina covers football and men’s basketball for BTN.com.

Power Rankings: Super-early first look at 2013-14

It’s never too early to look ahead to next season, right? Actually, yes, the day after the completion of one season is entirely too early to start analyzing the next. But even if we don’t know which stars will return and which ones will go pro, it’s fun to consider what next season may bring. See my super-early 2013-14 power rankings in this post. And once all the NBA decision are made, I’ll update this list. [ RELATED: How did I do with last year’s super-early rankings? ] No. 1: Michigan State – If Gary Harris and Adreian Payne stay

Tom Crean & Victor Oladipo

There was nothing keeping Oladipo at Indiana

When it came down to it, there was little keeping Victor Oladipo at Indiana. Think about it, the junior graduates next month, is fresh off a breakout season (Big Ten title, first-team AP All-America, unanimous first-team All-Big Ten, Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year), and is a projected lottery pick. Add it all up, and Oladipo’s announcement Tuesday to enter the 2013 NBA Draft is about as surprising as another sellout at Assembly Hall. Few, if any, players improved as much as Oladipo this season. He went from an inconsistent, turnover-prone athlete who made his mark on defense to,
