BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – Two Hoosier basketball All-Stars announce they’ll stay in school rather than head into the NBA.

Indiana’s University forward’s Christian Watford and Cody Zeller were a big part of leading IU to a 27-9 record for the 2011-2012 season as well as a spot in the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16.

Yahoo, CNNSI.com, NBC Sports, ESPN.com and USA Today have all chosen IU to be the preseason #1 since all five starters will be returning after finishing the season ranked 13th in the ESPN/ USA Today Coaches Poll.
