IU basketball sounds: Hoosier legend Calbert Cheaney deep dive on the 1-Star Recruits podcast

Few players in the IU basketball lore sit on a loftier perch than Calbert Cheaney.

Cheaney’s 2,613 career points from 1989-93 still stand as the most in IU and Big Ten history.

The three-time All-American led the Hoosiers to 105 wins during his four seasons on campus, including four NCAA Tournament appearances, two Big Ten titles and a run to the 1992 Final Four.

Cheaney averaged 22.4 points and 6.2 rebounds per game en route to earning Big Ten and National Player of the Year honors as a senior in 1993. He was selected No. 6 overall in the 1993 NBA Draft and went on to play 13 professional seasons.

Cheaney joined the 1 Star Recruit podcast this week to discuss his family, time at IU, NBA career, Evansville, and much more.

The 23 minute interview with Cheaney begins at the 21:19 mark.
