A second former Hoosier star has made the BTN All-Decade team as the network continues to roll out its top 16 Big Ten basketball players from 2010 to 2019.
To nobody’s surprise, former All-American Indiana guard Victor Oladipo made the cut.
The story of Oladipo’s IU career revolves around the progress that he made after arriving on campus in 2010 as a raw but promising talent. Known for his unparalleled work ethic, Oladipo reached unexpected heights by his junior season — IU’s memorable 2012-13 campaign.
The 6-foot-4 Oladipo averaged 13.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.2 steals per contest while shooting a league best 59.9 percent from the field. Oladipo set the program record for steals in a season with 78.
Named first team All-American, first team All-Big Ten and the Big Ten defensive player of the year, Oladipo catapulted himself to the No. 2 spot in the 2013 NBA Draft.
