Indiana has made an impressive start to the year so far and is 6-0 on the season.

Zeller is currently averaging 15.2 points per game and opposing coach, Roy Williams, who was also after the talented forward, expects the sophomore to be a handful Tuesday night.

Zeller has been in double figures scoring in all but one game this season, including a 22 point outing against Sam Houston State in 99-45 domination performance.

”He’s the guy that makes everybody else change their defense and you have to be concerned about him,” Williams said.

”He gave them a legitimate inside scorer that could foul out the other players. I just think he’s a great player, a great player.”

All eyes will be on Zeller, but his coach Tom Crean already has his sights set on other things.

”They bring some things that we’ve not seen, and I’m not sure that we’ve ever seen here,” Crean said.

”I’m not sure we’ve ever seen a fast break like there’s here at Assembly Hall, and James McAdoo is as good a rebounder on the offensive end as anyone we’ve seen this year or any other year.”
