but Lofton helped them win games - that alone makes kids valuable and coaches are willing to overlook a lot to keep kids who are difference-makers, even if they are troublemakers

and Zeisloft?? He helped them win games, too........why would he not be valuable to them -
he was a full time starter, and considering how little they lose he still would have been their 4th best returning scorer & had the fewest turnovers of any guard who started even a single game...
he was their BEST 3-point shooter, and a 90% free throw shooter, and was even their 4th leading rebounder...

Keane was brought in among a bunch of hype that he'd start from day 1 and be their full time point guard of the future....surely anyone from ISU knows how miserable it is to get caught short on point guards so why not just keep him as a reserve.....he's not that bad and just who ya gonna get that's any better this late in the recruiting cycle??


Remember - Muller has made mistakes.....he ran off Upshaw and all he did was become an all conference 20 ppg scorer at Hofstra

My guess and it's only a guess, is that he ran them off because he will announce at least two more kids better than what he ran off. The way he's been recruiting he'll probably get three kids better than those three.

Lofton was a head case. Zeisloft graduated and is very strong academically. He will pursue a school with a strong academic history and get it paid for. Keane wasn't going to play much next year.

Sad to say but this is how I feel!

Yes, and if he don't this year he may be the one to go but I think we'll hear something soon.

If a few players leave BU why do people think this staff can bring in anyone better? They have brought one decent player in so far and that was Pickett.

A lot of people could average 20 pts a game, on a bad team, taking 15 shots per game, with a 1.8/2.8 assist to turnover ratio... His shooting numbers, against mainly inferior competition wasn't good either- 40% from the field and 34% from 3.

Lofton is the only one that was Janked as you like to say. His attitude became to big of a distraction. Dan and company will bring in talent to replace all that left. Starting this weekend with Yarbrough and hopefully ending with a few more. Geno might wanna Jank his way out of Thursday night.

ISU's Zach Lofton will accept the offer from Richard Pitino and transfer to Minnesota
.. he will request a waiver from NCAA to play immediately but unless he knows someone influential at NCAA probably won't get it.

Lofton is from St. Paul, Minnesota, so he is transferring back home. Now if he can come up with a sick relative, he's got a chance.

It didn't take long for the NCAA to get back to Zach on this one - he's reportedly been told he will have to sit out a year...


"Zach Lofton .. said last week he was joining the Gophers after playing last season at Illinois State.
Lofton .. was hoping to get a waiver from the NCAA that would allow him to play next season.
...but ... he will sit out the 2014-15 season as a redshirt because of NCAA transfer rules.
... won't be eligible to play basketball at the University of Minnesota until the 2015-16 season."

Canisius boots another of their players - a guy who started half the time -
there are reports that ISU's Kaza Keane will be the guy who gets his scholarship

Nick Zeisloft officially an Indiana Hoosier
http://www.iuhoosiers.com/sports/m-b...070714aaa.html

He joins Marcus Arnold, Jon Ekey, Zach Lofton, and now Nick Zeisloft - all transferring from Illinois State to play in the Big Ten...

Gonna be hard for Zeisloft to live up to the expectatiopns Tom Crean just set...
"We feel his best basketball days are ahead of him and his versatility and skills allow him to be very multi-dimensional for us," added Crean"


according to reports Zeisloft will be given a scholarship and has two years remaining...
This could get interesting as some IU fans have noted - that Crean might just need the scholarship in 2015 - so tying it up now
on a single digit scorer from the mid-major level who doesn't have impressive stats of any nature, might create a recruiting dilemma some time within the next year...
