Former guard Rob Phinisee wore No.10 for three seasons before moving to No.1 by taking the number from Al Durham who transferred to Providence.

Although Phinisee grew up in enemy territory in Lafayette, Indiana, he came to Indiana where he started his Hoosiers career with a bang. Phinisee started 29 of 32 games in his freshman season and eventually rose through the ranks to captain the team in his junior season.

Last season, Phinisee had to miss 10 games due to a persistent right foot injury. Despite the adversity, Phinisee played her best game of her career against Purdue inside the Hall. He dropped a career-best 20 points and hit the game-winning three-pointer with 16 seconds left against the Boilermakers.

After the win, fans stormed the pitch and pushed Phinisee through the air in celebration.

Phinisee has since moved to Cincinnati for the upcoming season.
