BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana's Cody Zeller is back, and he's bigger and better than ever.
The preseason All-American has grown one-half inch and added 10 to 15 pounds of muscle. He's worked on his 3-point shot and hopes to include that in this season's repertoire, too, after not attempting a 3 all last season.
And he's the biggest reason the Hoosiers are ranked No. 1 as they head into Friday night's season opener against Bryant.
How much better can Zeller and his teammates really be after going 27-9 and re-establishing Indiana as a national power?
They insist they will be. Indiana is bursting with confidence, and, of course, they have the new and improved Zeller, too.
