Excitement always surrounds the beginning of the season for Indiana Basketball, but now with Hoosiers legend Mike Woodson at the end of the IU bench, the new head coach is looking to turn things around after the four years of woes that the program has suffered through.

2022 should be a far cry better than last season, with its 12-15 record and tie for 10th in the B1G.

During B1G Media Days interviews, Woodson addressed some of the issues facing the program on its move to turn things around. He said he will be looking for leadership from junior point guard Rob Phinisee, who arrived in Bloomington as a freshman and started 29 games, scoring in double-figures during eight games and was a stopper on defense, but struggled last season with some injuries.

Woodson had plenty to add during his meeting with the press at the Media Days event, and some of his comments are below.
