Whose Kids Posed With Oladipo on Sports Illustrated Cover?

Usually we can’t take our eyes off of Victor Oladipo, but today we couldn’t help wondering which lucky kids got the honor of surrounding him on the Sports Illustrated cover. Dustin Dopirak of The Hoosier Scoop tells us that most of the covermates are IU athletes, and tweets from IU athletic departments confirmed the appearance of baseball, soccer, football, and volleyball players and a (swollen-eyed) wrestler.

But that’s not all. Tom Crean’s two oldest kids made the shot, too, according to The Hoosier Scoop. Well, thanks, Dad! [Note: See the stars of the IU-centric cover and more reveal themselves, as has let them tag themselves in the images.]

While Oladipo and Cody Zeller got all the awards buzz, Will Sheehey is in the hunt for his own postseason honor: Cosmo‘s hottest guy of March Madness (see image below). The mag says, “As a forward, Will is great with rebounds. Nothing beats a guy who knows how to bounce back.” Zeller, aka The Big Handsome, was up for the award last year. That was then, and this is now: You can vote for Sheehey here.
