Problem with Romeo Langford’s legacy at Indiana is we don’t know him – at all
April 10, 2019

Romeo Langford is an enigma.  He’s inscrutable.  Mysterious. On the basketball court, he has very clever hands around the basket, silky smooth movement, and he’s become an improved defender.  His shooting lacks consistency, but averaged 16 points per game.  We saw all of what Romeo with our own eyes.
