Victor Oladipo was a big reason Indiana won its first outright Big Ten regular-season title in 20 years.

From rural Maryland, he was not a highly rated recruit but blossomed into an exciting player who often overshadowed teammate Cody Zeller, the conference's preseason player of the year.

The 6'5" shooting guard averaged 13.6 points per game, shot 59.9 percent overall and 44.3 percent from behind the 3-point arc in 2012-2013.

His list of accolades included the Sporting News national player of the year, a finalist for the Wooden Award, the All-Big Ten first team and Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. Offensively, he averages 1.39 points per play.

His NBA draft stock skyrocketed the last third of the season; NBADraft.net projects him as a likely lottery pick, up from a high-second-round pick in February.
