Former Indiana basketball great Damon Bailey was on the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame podcast recently.
Bailey recalls his legendary high school career and the hysteria that followed his every move from the time Bob Knight started recruiting him as an eighth grader. Bailey led Bedford North Lawrence to the 1990 state title. He remains the high school boys all-time scoring leader in the state of Indiana.
At IU, Bailey finished sixth on the program’s all-time scoring list with 1,741 points. He averaged 13.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game for his career. When he left IU in 1994, Bailey was tied for the most career wins as a Hoosier (108) with Quinn Buckner. Bailey went on to be a second round draft choice of the Indiana Pacers.
