The Hoosiers need help at the guard position, and more importantly someone who can create shots for themselves.

Bryce Aiken provides exactly that. The Harvard transfer is a career 16.8 point per game scorer and shoots 35 percent from deep. Aiken was a former four-star recruit and took the Ivy League by storm for the four seasons he was there.

Despite only playing in seven games last year, missing the rest with a foot injury, he is just a season removed from averaging 22.2 points and shooting 40 percent from three.

Aiken, while not necessarily a point guard, is much more of the Devonte Green skillset. A terrific shooter who can put up points in a hurry. With Green graduating, the Hoosiers need someone to fill that role either in the starting lineup or off of the bench.

The 6-foot guard has spent the majority of his Harvard career as the guy so coming into a situation where he may not get the shots he wants my shy him away.

From New Jersey, Aiken spent a lot of his high school career being recruited by Big Ten schools, most notably Maryland. With Anthony Cowan graduating, it immediately opens up a hole at the guard position for Mark Turgeon.
