Logan Duncomb expected to fill a bigger role in 2022-23

BLOOMINGTON — Race Thompson didn’t disclose the exact circumstances of the moment when he realized he had to take Logan Duncomb seriously, whether he was posting up with his back to the basket or trying to box out for a rebound, but he does remember the substantial shove to his back.

“I was wondering who pushed me,” Thompson said Thursday at IU basketball’s media day, chuckling with a combination of surprise and bemusement. “It was Logan standing there. I was like, ‘Well alright, Logan. Here we go.'”

It was akin to the moment where the smaller kid on the block finally rises up against the bully who has been picking on him with impunity, but in this case there was more than one bully and they were really hoping this day would come.
