Call this hiring an example of imitation being the sincerest form of flattery. When Royce Waltman's contract was not renewed, the Sycamores plucked Creighton assistant Kevin McKenna as Indiana State's next head coach. A former Creighton player, McKenna had a pair of stints as an assistant to Dana Altman with a head coaching job at Division II Nebraska-Omaha in between. … Last season, seven players averaged at least 15 minutes of playing time for the Sycamores. Six of those players return. That team, however, had something of a split personality. Early in the season, Indiana State beat eventual NCAA Tournament teams Butler and Purdue. But then the Sycamores closed the season by losing 14 of 16 games.
