INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — On Thursday, Indiana Head Basketball Coach Mike Woodson and the Hoosiers men’s basketball staff visited the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for Day 3 of practice ahead of the 106th running of the Indianapolis 500.

This past weekend, Indiana’s star forward Trayce Jackson-Davis missed the NBA Combine workouts in Chicago due to a positive COVID-19 test. As of Thursday, Jackson-Davis has yet to publicly share if he will remain in the 2022 NBA draft or return to Bloomington for a fourth season. 
“Well, I am going to meet with him at 4 o’clock today and just see where his head is,” Woodson told WISH-TV on Thursday. “And hopefully, he says the right thing that he is coming back. That is all that I can tell you right now.” 
Over the past three seasons, Jackson-Davis (1,588) is the fifth leading scorer in the country in terms of total points, ranking first overall in the Big Ten Conference.
