How much am I going to miss this guy?
It’s always special for the fans when a player sticks around long enough for us to watch him become what we always knew he was going to be. That has happened tenfold this season with D.J. His contribution to the team isn’t just numbers, although the numbers are impressive. D.J. is the backbone, the heart, the soul, the reason for IU basketball this season. Eric is a star player, but D.J. is a leader. He put the team on his back and carried those guys when they couldn’t carry themselves.
I feel like D.J. and I have been through so much together. I am grateful for the opportunity to watch him play, and I am not ready to say goodbye. Of course I don’t have to just yet. We still have some dancin’ to do.
