Victor Oladipo spent three years (2010-2013) at Indiana University - Bloomington, where he blossomed from the 144th ranked recruit in his high school class into the second overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. His high-end potential became obvious during Oladipo's freshman season, as he averaged 7.4 points and 3.7 rebounds in 32 games, five of them starts. Mr. Feathery's defense developed before his offense, and he was named to the Big Ten All-Defense team after a sophomore season that saw him average 1.4 steals and 3.6 defensive rebounds per game. Things took off for Oladipo in his third year at Indiana. The guard broke out with 13.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.2 steals per game. He also shot 59.9 percent from the field. Oladipo's outstanding season made him a finalist for the Naismith and Wooden awards. He was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year that season, and captured the Rupp Award.
