2015-16 Big Ten Regular Season Title
March 6, 2016

In a season that started with a forgettable trip to Hawaii, the Hoosiers battled back to become the best team in the conference. The Hoosiers finished the season with a 27-8 record, 15-3 in the Big Ten and a perfect 15-0 at home. Thomas Bryant played a major role in the Hoosiers success in the regular season his freshman year.

Bryant averaged 11.9 PPG, 5.8 RPG and shot 68.3% from the field in 2015-16. Thomas Bryant had a handful of impressive games throughout Big Ten play including recording his first career double-double against Ohio State (18 points, 13 rebounds). He also recorded 19 points in the second round of the NCAA Tournament against rival Kentucky.

If we are looking back at Thomas Bryant’s career as a Hoosier, this is undoubtedly one of the most important. A conference title in his freshman year competing against a loaded Big Ten Conference? I would say that is an achievement that Bryant will stick with him forever.
