The Hoosiers begin the 2022-23 season against Morehead State on November 7, which is just 12 days away for Indiana basketball. We are at the 12th player on our IUBB roster player previews and next on the list is sophomore center, Logan Duncomb.

As a freshman, Duncomb served as the 13th man on the Hoosiers roster, behind Michael Durr (graduated), who was Trayce Jackson-Davis’ backup for the year. As a freshman, Duncomb appeared in nine games and scored six total points. The big man has an opportunity this season to show his worth with his big body and ability to score off the bench if needed.

Before coming to Bloomington, Duncomb was the No. 73 recruit nationally according to 247Sports from Archbishop Moeller High School in Cincinnati, Ohio. As a senior, Duncomb averaged 13.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks. He also played AAU ball for Indiana Elite under Mark Adams and was teammates with Michael Shipp while attending Archbishop Moeller.

As we get closer to the beginning of the season, I wouldn’t be surprised if Mike Woodson opts to play Duncomb as the backup behind Jackson-Davis and maybe even gives the sophomore more playing time at the start to not wear down Jackson-Davis as Indiana basketball heads into the most challenging part of their non-conference schedule.

Peep the massive block by the sophomore big man at the 0:38 second mark:

Projected 2022-23 stats: 20 GP, 0 GS, 16 total points, 8 total rebounds, 50.0 FG%
