Former IU star Brian Evans joined The Ride with JMV on Wednesday to discuss Indiana’s loss at Rutgers, the state of the program under Mike Woodson, Xavier Johnson’s ejection, and much more.
A native of Terre Haute, Ind., Evans played for IU from 1993-96 and is one of only 12 Hoosiers to win Big Ten Most Valuable Player honors in men’s basketball. Evans earned the award after averaging 21.2 points and 7.1 rebounds as a senior in 1996, capping a career that included 1,701 points and 750 rebounds.
During his Big Ten MVP and third-team All-America senior season, Evans also became the first player in the Bob Knight era to lead the conference in scoring. In addition to his first-team All-Big Ten honors in 1996, Evans was also a third-team All-Conference selection in 1995 after averaging 17.4 points and 6.7 rebounds.
Following his senior season, Evans was drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft by the Orlando Magic, and spent four years in the NBA with Orlando and New Jersey.
