Freshman star leads IU departures

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana's roster will look very different next season.

On Monday, coach Tom Crean announced two players would transfer, just hours after word leaked that star freshman Noah Vonleh was headed to the NBA.

Crean issued a news release that said redshirt sophomore forward Austin Etherington and sophomore forward Jeremy Hollowell were looking for new schools.

The bigger blow would be losing Vonleh, the Big Ten freshman of the year. Crean had not confirmed that decision, first reported by The Indianapolis Star later cited Vonleh's mother as confirming it.

BOWLING GREEN: Wichita State assistant Chris Jans was hired as head coach, replacing the fired Louis Orr.

DUKE: Luke Kennard, the 27th annual winner of Ohio's AP Mr. Basketball award, announced he'll play for the Blue Devils.

HOUSTON: Coach James Dickey stepped down after four seasons because of "a family matter that requires my time and energy."

N.C. STATE: Sophomore forward T.J. Warren, the ACC player of the year, is headed to the NBA, reported.

ST. JOHN'S: Sophomore forward JaKarr Sampson, the team's second-leading scorer, will enter the NBA draft.

VA. TECH: Buzz Williams said he's taking over "a sleeping giant" as Hokies coach. The former Marquette coach was introduced at what was part news conference and part pep rally.
