Trayce Jackson-Davis makes Indiana program history in win over No. 24 Rutgers
Trayce Jackson-Davis is a top 5 player in college basketball right now, objectively. The star center is averaging a double-double each outing, with just under 20 points per game and 11 rebounds per game.
He’s cementing his legacy as one of the all-time Indiana basketball greats, too. Tuesday night he affirmed that, becoming the first Hoosier ever to record both 2,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds across a career. And he’s still got at least 9 games to go, though the Indiana that showed up Tuesday night looks primed to do some damage in March.
Jackson-Davis finished with 20 points, 18 rebounds and 6 assists in Indiana’s huge win over No. 24 Rutgers Tuesday night.

Indiana basketball is at its best when running through Jackson-Davis and freshman guard Jalen Hood-Schifino. The Hoosiers are an impressive 17-7 on the season despite a tough schedule, sitting at No. 2 in the conference behind only Purdue with the huge win in Bloomington Tuesday.

This Indiana is dangerous. Can they keep it up?
