Indiana’s 2011-12 season was a memorable one as the Hoosiers slayed giants and the program finally emerged from the gloomy Kelvin Sampson era collapse.
Former IU player and director of player development Derek Elston joined Sports Information Director J.D. Campbell to revisit Indiana’s 2011 New Year’s Eve win over No. 2 Ohio State.
No. 13 Indiana moved to 13-1 on the season with a 74-70 win over the Buckeyes that day.
A native of Tipton, Elston played four years for the Hoosiers (09-13) and was a member of the 2013 Big Ten Championship squad and 2012 Sweet Sixteen team. He battled injuries throughout his career and scored 498 points and shot 37.5 percent from three-point range, including 55.2% from long distance as a junior. As a senior, he was named Academic All-Big Ten and received the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award.
Elston now works for United Fidelity Bank. He serves as the Community Development Officer for United Fidelity’s Carmel, Ind. Regional Operations.
