James Blackmon only played 13 games as a sophomore. Indiana was 10-3 in those games and unranked when the 6-foot-4 guard went down. So when the Hoosiers subsequently became awesome and won the Big Ten title outright, some folks suggested Blackmon's injury might've been a so-called blessing in disguise.

I'm not here to argue whether that's true or false.

I'm just here to note that Blackmon has been great this season.

The in-state product has led Indiana in scoring all three games and is averaging 23.0 points. He's shooting 56.1 percent from the field and 51.9 percent from 3-point range. And that's among the reasons why Indiana is undefeated and ranked No. 3 in the CBS Sports Top 25 (and one).

The complete Top 25 (and one) is below.
