On this week’s edition of Assembly Call Radio, we use Archie Miller’s recent comments about De’Ron Davis on the College Hoops Today podcast as a jumping off point for assessing what is fair to expect from De’Ron this year, how he improved last season, and how he might fit on this year’s IU roster.
We also discuss Archie’s comments on the importance of togetherness this season, which newcomer he expects to have the biggest role early on, and why Justin Smith and Devonte Green appear primed for breakout seasons.
On the mics this week: Jerod, Andy, and … eventually … Ryan.
