The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Top 10 Indiana Hoosiers of the 21st Century: Is Trayce Jackson Davis number one?

Top 10 Indiana Hoosiers of the 21st Century: Is Trayce Jackson Davis number one?

Publish Date: 07/01/2023
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

The 21st Century

The 20th century saw the Indiana Hoosiers as a blue-blood program. The 21st century has seen the Hoosiers drop back into the pack. Today we will look at the top ten players of the 21st century. The 21st century hasn’t been all a waste, as the Hoosiers have had some great moments and great players.

10) Tom Coverdale

He was a starter for three consecutive years.

He recorded 30 points while also contributing six rebounds, five assists and four steals in an 80-74 overtime victory against Maryland early in the 2002-03 season, shortly after Indiana had fallen to Maryland in the national title game of the previous year.

He averaged 11.9 points and 4.5 assists for the 2002 Indiana team that advanced to the national championship game, as all four of his Indiana teams qualified for NCAA tournament competition.

9) Christian Watford

He made at IU in 2011 for hitting a 3-pointer from the left wing against then-No. 1 Kentucky with just seconds remaining, sending Assembly Hall crowd members flooding onto the court after what has since become known as the “Wat shot.”

After two challenging campaigns, Indiana returned to the Sweet Sixteen in his final two seasons.

8) Kirk Haston

Haston was a 2001 All-Big Ten First Team Member.

After making just two 3-pointers his first two seasons at Indiana, he shot 26 as a junior – including an iconic buzzer-beater against No. 1 Michigan State in March!

7) D. J. White

As his sophomore season was cut short due to injury, he achieved All-Big Ten and All-American status during his senior season by averaging 17.4 points and 10.3 rebounds per game.

He recorded 21 points and 22 rebounds against Michigan.

Indiana earned three NCAA tournament berths and one NIT bid; during this span, they won two NCAA tournament games.

6) Victor Oladipo

Victor was selected as national defensive player of the year and an All-American in 2013.

Oladipo didn’t have overwhelming star status during his three years at Indiana, sharing the spotlight with Cody Zeller and Noah Vonleh. However, during his junior campaign, he accomplished an impressive career-high 26 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals against Ohio State.

Hoosiers made two consecutive Sweet Sixteen appearances.

5) Yogi Ferrell

He earned All-Big Ten honors twice and was recognized as a senior with a Wooden Award Finalist nomination.

Ferrell hit four 3-pointers during his senior season to lead the Hoosiers to an 81-78 win against Iowa en route to winning their conference championship title.

Indiana advanced to three NCAA tournament berths and reached the Sweet Sixteen twice during this era.

4) A.J. Guyton

Guyton’s 2,100 points, 403 assists, 128 steals, the numbers don’t lie as Guyton was a Hoosier legend and one of the last Hoosier legends to play for Bob Knight.

Huyton was all big-ten and a first-team all-American his senior season.

3) Cody Zeller

Zeller earned All-Big Ten and All-American honors as a sophomore.

He finished an outstanding 25-point, 10-rebound performance for Indiana in their regular-season finale against Michigan by scoring the winning basket and making key defensive plays in the closing seconds – an achievement worthy because the Hoosiers were ranked second in the nation at the time, and Michigan was ranked seventh.

Hoosier basketball reached both Sweet Sixteens during his two seasons.

2) Jared Jeffries

Jeffries scored 24 points and grabbed 15 rebounds as Indiana rallied from a double-digit halftime deficit to defeat No. 1-seeded Duke in a Sweet Sixteen matchup. Additionally, his block stopped Carlos Boozer’s potential winning putback bid by blocking it with his finger.

He led Indiana’s 2002 team that reached the national championship game, their most recent Final Four appearance. Jeffries was all big ten twice and a first-team all-American in 2002.

1) Trayce Jackson Davis

I don’t think anybody saw a ranking like this coming for Trayce after his freshman season.

Trauce improved each year he was in the program, and at the end of his four years, the Hoosiers were back in the NCAA Tournament, and Trayce had established himself as one of the top ten Indiana Hoosiers of all time.
