2. Chucky Hepburn – Sophomore Guard – #23

2022-23 stats: 15 GP, 32.1 MIN, 13.0 PPG, 3.5 REB, 3.4 AST, 2.1 STL, 2.2 3PM, 48.5 3P%

As a freshman, Hepburn recorded just 12 total points, five rebounds, and four assists in his two games against Indiana basketball last season. Already in his sophomore campaign, Hepburn has eclipsed 12 points in seven of his 15 games played this season, including an impressive 23-point game against Wake Forest on November 29th.

Hepburn has turned into one of the primary options for Greg Gard’s offense and has become much more aggressive offensively. Without Xavier Johnson matching up with Hepburn, look for him to attack the weak Indiana defense, especially if Wahl is unable to go.
