10:11 AM ET 04.13 | Indiana announced late Friday night that sophomore guard Remy Abell has decided to transfer in order to seek more playing time. Abell, a Louisville, Ky. native, has averaged 3.5 points in 10.7 minutes of action per game during his two-year stint at IU, however has chosen to seek more playing opportunities at another institution. "I am going to miss everyone," Abell said in a release from IU Athletics. "But I just feel at this time a fresh start and new opportunities are what is best in following God's plan for me."

Abell's departure is odd, considering that Victor Oladipo declared for the NBA. The door has been opened for him as a starter for the Hoosiers now. Guess he got impatient, or some other issue underlies his transfer.

Agreed. Or are the incoming freshman so good that he still didn't think he would be playing?

We'll sure miss his 3.5 points and 4 turnovers per game. Good luck at EKU or wherever you end up, Mr. Abell.

Ouch. The four turnovers could be attributed to rust.

I'm a little skeptical on this one. Is what he's saying is true or does he want to leave because he thinks there isn't much of a chance to play for a title at IU in the next 2 years?

Somebody must have put a bug in his ear... maybe thinks he'll get beat out by that 3-point shooting kid. Here's a question to you Hoosier fans: is Crean a top-flight HC? I ask this because it looked to me that he got totally out-coached by Boheim. Indiana looked like they had never seen a 2-3 zone before and were not prepared for it. There was no ball movement, no motion by players and it seemed Zellar had no passing options when the D collapsed on him inside. Most surprising was as the game went on NOTHING CHANGED... all this is on the coach. I liked Crean before the attack on the assistant coach on another team claiming he ruined IU's program. I knoe the guy was Sanson's AC and was a busy telephone caller, but really? IU set their own program back when they let that punk student disrespect KNoght and drummed him out... just sayin'

IU's loss to Syracuse was like all the other ones they had this year. Indiana got out-muscled underneath and they let their opponent get too many offensive boards. That and too many turnovers. It was a trend in each of the losses.
